Access - Match on more than one row

Hi,

In the attached file, please offer a solution as to how I can get a list joined on the A10 and B10, where A9 and B9 are unequal. If it is a one to many pairing, this is viewed as not a match, but it really is not.

Thank you.

You may want to click the "Request Attention" link and ask that the SQL Syntax zone be added to this Q.

Don't really follow and I don't know what you are referring to by 'A10' and 'A9'as there doesn't appear be anything with those labels.

Sorry, yes, I had posted the wrong file, please post an updated one, with the proper field names.

It is easy to create a query where A9 = B9 and A10 = B10.

What I am looking for is where A10 = B10, but A9 <> B9.

Hope this helps.

Here is the actual code I am using:

SELECT DISTINCTROW [I9 DX].[ICD-9 Dx Code], [I9 DX].[ICD-10 Dx Code], [I10 DX].[ICD-10 Dx Code], [I10 DX].[ICD-9 Dx Code]
FROM [I9 DX] INNER JOIN [I10 DX] ON [I9 DX].[ICD-10 Dx Code] = [I10 DX].[ICD-10 Dx Code]
GROUP BY [I9 DX].[ICD-9 Dx Code], [I9 DX].[ICD-10 Dx Code], [I10 DX].[ICD-10 Dx Code], [I10 DX].[ICD-9 Dx Code];

Here is the story, and the desired outcome. I have two tables, that have two fields ICD-9 Dx Code and ICD-10 Dx Code in each table (I9 and I10). I am joining on ICD-10 Dx Code, and want to receive a table where the ICD-9 Dx Codes are not the same from I9 to I10 (that is the pairing ot the ICD-10 Dx Code value changes).

The problem is, one I9 code can be mapped to more than one I10, and vice versa. Therefore, when I code, Access/SQL views this as an unequal match, but all that really happens is that there are multiple rows (hope this makes sense).

The main issue is sorting on the fields so that the code captures that there may be a match on different rows per the I10 match.

Here is a simple parallel:

Table A
Color       Number
Red          1
Red          2
Blue         3
Orange    4

Table B
Color       Number
Red        1
Red        2
Red       20
Blue       3
Blue       30
Orange   4

Expected Output
Color Number
Red    20
Blue 30
Orange 4

Unfortunately, since this is a one to many in values that are in both tables, this code reads this as Red 1 and Red 2 are also not equal, but they are.

The objective is to output a table where when Table 1 and Table 2 are joined on color, the output table only contains Numbers that are not equal for the join on color in Tables 1 and 2.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Do you mean that you want records from table B which are not in table A?

Select B.* from tableB as B left join tableA as A
on B.Color= A.Color and B.[Number] = a.[Number]
where A.color is null

A blend of both, I have actually used Left and Right joins after my last posting and prior to your last post.

Let me review my work, but yes, you are right, this is a Left/Right Join question.

Thank you
