I need  a query to select Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4 and Field5 from every record in Table1 *except* records that meet the following criteria:
- Records in table1 that have a "0" (zero) in Field3, Field4 and Field5.
AND
- also have the first 4 numbers of a 6 digit number in Table1.Field2 match the first 4 numbers of Table2.Field1

Both points (conditions) must be met for the record to be excluded from query results.

capricorn1 - I *thought* your query looked funny but figured it was a case of it being brilliant in its simiplicity so I was trying to experiment with it anyway...

MNelson831 - what do you mean "2 tables Cap."?    Also, I think since your query is selecting the records I want but using the logic of the records I want excluded, I *think* the "and"s in the first part of the WHERE need to be "or"s. I'm just playing with it now.

Thanks MNelson831, a couple of slight mods (repl 'and's with 'or's and remove the 'not' gave me the records I was looking for.

SELECT Table1.Field1
FROM COA
WHERE (((COA.JAN)<>0)) OR (((COA.FEB)<>0)) OR (((COA.MAR)<>0)) OR (((Left([Account],4)) In (Select left(Field1,4) From Table2)));

My bad... I read the question as wanting to exclude records that met ALL conitions rather than records that met ANY condition
