In the process of buidling a database. I have a table called Oracle Extract which contains 2 different tasks. one is services the other are expenses ( Identified by the task column-1101.1 is an expense, 2205.1 is services.
I am creating a report to illustrate various data on the projects (Project Margin Report). I would like to have the total for task 1101.1 to show up in the Actual Expense Text box( Highlighted in Red on Project Margin Report) for each project. Looking for suggestions on the best way to pull this data into the report. Maybe something similiar to an if statement in excel. I tried to write it but cant seem to get it correct.
I have attached the database file

Account-Project-Management.accdb

You can use this query for collecting expense and services in different columns:
 
SELECT [Oracle Extract].Project, [Oracle Extract].[Employee/Supplier], Sum(IIf([Task]=1011.1,[Oracle Extract]![Quantity],0)) AS ExpQnty, Sum(IIf([Task]=2205.1,[Oracle Extract]![Quantity],0)) AS ServQnty
FROM [Oracle Extract]
GROUP BY [Oracle Extract].Project, [Oracle Extract].[Employee/Supplier];

Open in new window

Change field if you like to sum other then quantity
