I have an access query that is looking at two tables one current data and the other last months data and the query is picking up where there is a difference.

It is not picking up where it was null previously null with the current value populated ie data came in for that particular field.

How can I pick up that scenario too?

not sure if i also want the reverse ie i no longer have data but had it last month ie the current field became null.

am working in access query grid
regards in advance

Try using the Bz() fucntion

Example:

where IIf( Trim(Nz([SMMT].[INTRO DATE])) <> Trim(Nz([SMMT_Previous].[INTRO DATE])) ,1,0) >0  Or 

Open in new window


or simplified to

where IIf( Trim(Nz([SMMT].[INTRO DATE])) <> Trim(Nz([SMMT_Previous].[INTRO DATE])) ,True,False)  Or 

Open in new window


even more simplified:

where (Trim(Nz([SMMT].[INTRO DATE]) <> Trim(Nz([SMMT_Previous].[INTRO DATE]))) Or 

Open in new window


Why all the TRIM()'s?

Are the dates stored as text not data/time data type?
