I need to list of countries, from where, a customer has active orders, but only need the value once.

The SQL select i use:
SELECT DISTINCT
SupplierCountry.cCode,
Orders.SupID,
OrdersProducts.tn
FROM (((OrdersProducts INNER JOIN Orders ON OrdersProducts.orderID = Orders.orderID)
INNER JOIN suppliers ON Orders.SupID = suppliers.SupID)
INNER JOIN  SupplierCountry  on suppliers.SupCountry =  SupplierCountry.SupCountry)  
WHERE transportNo <> '' AND Orders. Customer = ‘" & request.form("Customer ") & "' ORDER BY SupplierCountry.cCode ASC

The Tables:

Orders
Customer      orderID      SupID
Aa      1000      1
Bb      1001      1
Cc      1002      1
Dd      1003      2
Ee      1004      3

OrdersProducts
tn      ItemID      orderID
100      A      1000
100      B      1000
100      C      1000
101      D      1002
102      E      1003

Suppliers
SupID      SupCountry
1      5
2      2
3      3
4      2
5      5

SupplierCountry
cCode      SupCountry
BE      1
DE      2
FR      3
UK      4
US      5

Result:
US
US
US

I was hoping for:
US

Ok, For some reason is the suplierID colum missing, but It could be any value.

Try to only select the country distinct:

SELECT DISTINCT
SupplierCountry.cCode,
FROM (((OrdersProducts INNER JOIN Orders ON OrdersProducts.orderID = Orders.orderID)
INNER JOIN suppliers ON Orders.SupID = suppliers.SupID)
INNER JOIN  SupplierCountry  on suppliers.SupCountry =  SupplierCountry.SupCountry)  
WHERE transportNo <> '' AND Orders. Customer = ‘" & request.form("Customer ") & "' ORDER BY SupplierCountry.cCode ASC

Mine wasn't accurate anyway. I skipped over a table. It should be like this:

SELECT DISTINCT s1.cCodE
FROM Orders o1
INNER JOIN Suppliers s2
ON o1.SupID=s2.SupID
INNER JOIN SupplierCountry s1
ON s2.SupCountry =  s1.SupCountry
ORDER BY SupplierCountry.cCode ASC

This works on Access and MS SQL

Sorry, You are both right, and I'm a B..... I....
The 800a0cc1 Error wasn't related to the Select, but a recordset variable.

Thanks
