This shows all the upc's that have been sold in the past month.

I want to show all upc's that have been sold TWICE in the past month and have a quantity of less than 5.
SELECT UPC
 
FROM salesitems, salelineitem
 
Where salelineitem.sku = salesitems.sku
 
and exists
 
 (select sku
from saleLineitem, salesno
where salelineitem.saleno = salesno.saleno
and Exists (Select * From salesitems, salelineitem Where salesitems.sku = salelineitem.sku
and salelineitem.sku < 5)
and SalesNo.SaleDate <= DATE()
AND SalesNo.SaleDate >= DATEADD("m", -1, DATE()) );

First of all I would get rid of the exists conditions and use joins instead - the performance will be much better.

Secondly, I would create an auxiliardy query (say it's called query_number_of_sales) which would provide the number of sales in the past month for all products with sale quantity < 5.

Then a separate query could show the list of products which have been sold exactly twice, or at least twice etc.
--SQL code for query_number_of_sales:
 
SELECT saleLineitem.sku, Count(saleLineitem.sku) as NumberOfSales
FROM  saleLineitem INNER JOIN salesno
ON  salelineitem.saleno = salesno.saleno
WHERE salelineitem.sku < 5
AND SalesNo.SaleDate <= Date()
AND SalesNo.SaleDate >= Dateadd("m", -1, Date()) 
GROUP BY saleLineitem.sku
 
--final query:
 
SELECT SI.UPC
 FROM salesitems SI INNER JOIN query_number_of_sales QNS ON 
 SI.sku = QNS.sku
 
Where QNS.NumberOfSales = 2
