Here is the query which was  partially derived by an EE ...
 select  
Emplid,
[start date],
[end date],
sum(DATEDIFF("d",[start date], [end date])) as DaysWorked
from table1

WHERE [end date] > #01/01/2010# and
[start date] <  #12/31/2010#

group by emplid,[start date], [end date]



So this will give me all three date ranges but I want only partial number of days in the

Emplid      start date      end date      DaysWorked
9999999      09/08/2009      29/01/2010      173
9999999      02/01/2010      30/04/2010      118
9999999      09/07/2010      20/12/2010      164

but I want the record  9999999      09/07/2010      20/12/2010      164
 to only reflect days worked from Jan 1, 2010.  Is this possible?

Thanks, Nigluc

try this


 select  
Emplid,
[start date],
[end date],
sum(DATEDIFF("d",[start date], [end date])) as DaysWorked
from table1

WHERE [end date] between #01/01/2010# and #12/31/2010#
and [start date] Between #01/01/2010# and #12/31/2010#

group by emplid,[start date], [end date]

Hi Capricorn1,

The result from your query:

Emplid      start date      end date      DaysWorked
9999999      02/01/2010      30/04/2010      118
9999999      09/07/2010      20/12/2010      164

I still want the 3 date range but I only want it to reflect the date range in the criteria so it would have something like  29 days

Thanks,
Nigluc

Im not sure about Access but in sql server it can be done by using a CASE statement in the SELECT clause.

example:
SUM ( DATEDIFF("d",
  (CASE WHEN start_date < '2010-1-1' then '2010-1-1 ELSE start_date END),
   end_date)
)

Hi,

I don't normally work in access but I don;t think it has case.  I was able to get my sql server going...as I am at my home.  And yes, the solution provided works fine.  Thanks to all who replied.

select  
Emplid,
[start date],
[end date],
SUM ( DATEDIFF("d",
 (CASE WHEN [start date] < '2010-1-1' then '2010-1-1' ELSE [end date] END),
  [end date])) AS DAYS_WORKED
from dbo.days_worked_2
WHERE [end date] > '01/01/2010'
and  [end date] <  '12/31/2010'
and  [start date] < '01/01/2010'
AND EMPLID='4147737'
group by emplid,[start date], [end date]

UNION

select  
Emplid,
[start date],
[end date],
 SUM ( DATEDIFF("d",
 (CASE WHEN [start date] > '2010-1-1' then [start date] ELSE [end date] END),
  [end date])) AS 'DAYS_WORKED'
from dbo.days_worked_2
WHERE [end date] > '01/01/2010'
and  [end date] <  '12/31/2010'
