Hey

My Table Structure is something like this:

conference_hall_floor
date
timefrom
timeto
username

I want a query where user can check the availability of room according to the time.

I want the user to input Conference Hall, Date, Timefrom and Timeto

If the room is booked, it will show a msgbox showing room is booked by "username", else it will show "It's Available"

Is it possible?

Regards,
Anshu

You can use a SELECT statement to check this:

Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Set rst = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM YourTAble WHERE [Date]=#" & Me.YourDateControl & "# AND [conference_hall_floor]=" & Me.YourConferenceHallControl & " AND ([timefrom] BETWEEN " & Me.YourTimeFromControl & " AND " & Me.YourTimeToControl & ")")

If Not (rst.EOF and rst.BOF) Then
  '/you found a record, so the room isn't available
Else
  '/you didn't find a record - the room is available
End If

You'll need to tweak this, of course, but that should get you started.
