Hi all,

I would like to specify multiple query using two ANDs using Select Query. I am basing a report which has to pick two ranges within the same field, ie.

range from 60 to 69 and from 90 to 99.

I have tried the following in the criteria box.

(between 60 AND 69) and (between 90 AND 99)....no luck

I have tried permutations of the above but to no avail.

Grateful to know if it can be done?

Thanks

I am assuming that the field value that has to be in the range cannot be in 60 to 69 and 90 to 99 as it would be a discrete value - either 60 to 69 or 90 to 99, so the where clause would be BETWEEN 60 an 69 or BEWTWEEN 60 and 99

That is something like WHERE ID Between 60 and 69 or ID between 90 and 99

Hi guys,

I would like my query to pick "both ranges", ie, the values pertaining to ID from 60 to 69 "and" the values pertaining to the range 90 to 99.

Another way, but a bit heavy going would be where ID IN(60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,68,69,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,98,99)

SELECT field1, field2, ... FROM table WHERE (field BETWEEN 60 AND 69) OR (field BETWEEN 90 AND 99)

Hi,

I have a field ID as autonumber.

But I would like to select two ranges from the same field eg. Simply put...

1 - A
2 - A
3 - B
4 - C
5 - C

Therefore I would like to select the values pertaining to two ranges i.e. from 1 to 2 and from 4 to 5.

Thanks

In your example your filter MUST be like this:

Filter: (ID between 1 and 2) OR (ID between 4 and 5)

If you use "AND" it has to meet both criterias at same time, which can never be true!

I have successfully used these expressions without bracketing for the last 15 years1 The query wizards add them, and unless you need toem to determine a order of operations they can be left off - and often result in increased performance.

But this is only detracting from the question.
