Filtering Dynamic current 1/4 From Microsoft Acccess

I had 2 questions.

 I know how to filter something in but how do I filter something out where if I had table and wanted so show everything but a certain customers How do i do a not equal too

I also had a question on dates. I am trying to run this report dynamically for a metric on the current quarter and was wonder if there is a SQL line from grabbing the current date figuring out the current quarter?

1) Select * from Table1 Where [Field] <> 'Some Value'

or

Select * from Table1 Where [Field] Not IN ('Some string of values')


2) Where [Date] >= DateDiff("mm",3,Date())


But how you define your quarters may be different.

You can use DateAdd or DateDiff depending on your needs. Check the Help for syntax and tricks.

Using something like this as a function

Function ReturnQuarter(MyDate As Date) As Boolean
If DatePart("q", MyDate) = DatePart("q", Date) Then ReturnQuarter = True
End Function

and using it in your query like this

Field = ReturnQuarter([DateField]
Show = False
Criteria = True

OR

you could use an IIF statement as part of your query

YourField: iif(DatePart("q", [DateField]) = DatePart("q", Date) , [SomeValue],0)

I am not an exprt on functions or how to add them to Access
i tried adding the iif statement iif(DatePart("q", [DateField]) = DatePart("q", Date) , [SomeValue],0)
 to the criteria field but it ask for date? trying to make it dynamic
SELECT Invoice.WrittenBy AS [INS Rep], [Invoice Line Detail-View].CustomerName AS Customer, Invoice.SONumber AS [Order], [Invoice Line Detail-View].Item, [Invoice Line].DateRequired AS [Required Date], [Invoice Line].DatePromised, Invoice.DateShipped
FROM ([Invoice Line Detail-View] LEFT JOIN [Invoice Line] ON ([Invoice Line Detail-View].InvoiceNumber = [Invoice Line].InvoiceNumber) AND ([Invoice Line Detail-View].InvoiceLineNumber = [Invoice Line].InvoiceLineNumber)) LEFT JOIN Invoice ON [Invoice Line Detail-View].InvoiceNumber = Invoice.InvoiceNumber
WHERE ((([Invoice Line Detail-View].CustomerName)<>"Dwight Long") AND ((Invoice.DateShipped)=IIf(DatePart("q",[DateField])=DatePart("q","Date"),[SomeValue],0)) AND ((Invoice.InvoiceType)="SHIP"));

Open in new window

Make sure that you have no Missing References. To do this, go to the VBA window and go to Tools/References

You will need the Microsoft Object Library included in the list to make the Date() function work. It is a built in function within Access.

Also, you're not adding the IIF statement to a criteria of a field. it becomes the source field for whatever it is you're totaling.

Where I have [SomeValue]..that represents a $$ field inside your query where you're trying to total Metrics.

Well I am alittle lost becuase I am sure my Reference are there cause I added this to one of my other query under criteria to exclude sat and sunday and works great (Date()-Choose(Weekday(Date()),2,3,1,1,1,1,1))

So i am not adding the iif stament to creteria ?

If you want to use as Criteria, it will be something more along these lines:


SELECT Invoice.WrittenBy AS [INS Rep],
[Invoice Line Detail-View].CustomerName AS Customer, Invoice.SONumber AS [Order], [
Invoice Line Detail-View].Item, [Invoice Line].DateRequired AS [Required Date], [Invoice Line].DatePromised, Invoice.DateShipped
FROM ([Invoice Line Detail-View] LEFT JOIN [Invoice Line] ON ([Invoice Line Detail-View].InvoiceNumber = [Invoice Line].InvoiceNumber) AND ([Invoice Line Detail-View].InvoiceLineNumber = [Invoice Line].InvoiceLineNumber)) LEFT JOIN Invoice ON [Invoice Line Detail-View].InvoiceNumber = Invoice.InvoiceNumber
WHERE [Invoice Line Detail-View].CustomerName <>"Dwight Long"
AND DatePart("q",[DateShipped])= DatePart("q",Date())
AND Invoice.InvoiceType ="SHIP";

Note, I used [DateShipped] in the expression. You may want to use another date as required.
