I have a report in a Access database called Invoices. How and where do I incorporate the following criteria in the query to meet these requirements. I am new to access.

Sub Accounts
BTT = 763679
BTI = 763665
STATS = 762925
IDS = 763919


Credit Obj Code
If DivisionCode=”BTT” or ”BTI” or “Stats” then it is = 473
Else DivisionCode =”IDS” which is 693
End If

Charge Obj Code
If DivisionCode=”BTT” or “BTI” or “Stats” then it is = 274
Else DivisionCode=”IDS” which is = 224
End if

maybe this:

where
[Credit Obj Code] = iif(DivisionCode="BTT" or DivisionCode="BTI" or DivisionCode="Stats", 473, 693)
and
[Credit Obj Code] = iif(DivisionCode="BTT" or DivisionCode="BTI" or DivisionCode="Stats", 274, 224)

Better still, post the database.  This kind of criteria tweaking needs real data to work with.

You will need to set up multiple criteria rows to accommodate the various combinations of criteria.

This is the query for the report.

SELECT Invoices.*, [Study Details].*, [InvoiceDetail Subtable].*, Divisions.DivisionName, [Invoices Max of Print Date].Total, [Invoices Max of Print Date]![MaxOfPrintDate] AS PrintDate FROM [InvoiceDetail Subtable] RIGHT JOIN ((Divisions INNER JOIN (Invoices INNER JOIN [Study Details] ON Invoices.Study = [Study Details].StudyID) ON Divisions.DivisionCode = Invoices.DivisionCode) INNER JOIN [Invoices Max of Print Date] ON Invoices.InvoiceID = [Invoices Max of Print Date].InvoiceID) ON [InvoiceDetail Subtable].InvoiceID = Invoices.InvoiceID;

It is the Object Report thats called Invoices. Thats the one that should meet that requirement when you open it.

What should I do to send this DB to you. I thought I should just attach it.

try adding this to the query of report

where
tablename.[Credit Obj Code] = iif(Invoices.DivisionCode in ("BTT","BTI","Stats"), 473, 693)
and
tablename.[Charge Obj Code] = iif(Invoices.DivisionCode in ("BTT","BTI","Stats"), 274, 224)

Should I put this directly after the last line in this query.

SELECT Invoices.*, [Study Details].*, [InvoiceDetail Subtable].*, Divisions.DivisionName, [Invoices Max of Print Date].Total, [Invoices Max of Print Date]![MaxOfPrintDate] AS PrintDate
FROM [InvoiceDetail Subtable] RIGHT JOIN ((Divisions INNER JOIN (Invoices INNER JOIN [Study Details] ON Invoices.Study = [Study Details].StudyID) ON Divisions.DivisionCode = Invoices.DivisionCode) INNER JOIN [Invoices Max of Print Date] ON Invoices.InvoiceID = [Invoices Max of Print Date].InvoiceID) ON [InvoiceDetail Subtable].InvoiceID = Invoices.InvoiceID;

yes but modify the table name first... which table has these columns

[Credit Obj Code]
[Charge Obj Code]

you should modify the tablename before using the query below
SELECT Invoices.*, [Study Details].*, [InvoiceDetail Subtable].*, Divisions.DivisionName, [Invoices Max of Print Date].Total, [Invoices Max of Print Date]![MaxOfPrintDate] AS PrintDate
FROM [InvoiceDetail Subtable] RIGHT JOIN ((Divisions INNER JOIN (Invoices INNER JOIN [Study Details] ON Invoices.Study = [Study Details].StudyID) ON Divisions.DivisionCode = Invoices.DivisionCode) INNER JOIN [Invoices Max of Print Date] ON Invoices.InvoiceID = [Invoices Max of Print Date].InvoiceID) ON [InvoiceDetail Subtable].InvoiceID = Invoices.InvoiceID
where
tablename.[Credit Obj Code] = iif(Invoices.DivisionCode in ("BTT","BTI","Stats"), 473, 693)
and
tablename.[Charge Obj Code] = iif(Invoices.DivisionCode in ("BTT","BTI","Stats"), 274, 224)

Open in new window

The Credit Obj Code and Charge Obj code are not from any specific table. It should just meet that criteria. Where do I incorporate the Sub Accounts from the requirement

Sub Accounts
BTT = 763679
BTI = 763665
STATS = 762925
IDS = 763919

I dont want the user to be prompted when trying to open the report. Based on your recommendation thats what it is doing now. I also noticed that IDS which is 693 and 224 is missing from the query.
