Selecting dates in query

Hi,

Each day data is added to a table, which I have extracted in a crosstab query in the format below -

I then link this data below to another query, but how can I automatically include all the days in this new query without adding them manually each day

first_name surname emp_no      From 0500312    19/03/2012
David        Franklin        WO055      2030      316      59.75      

Below is the sql from the new query - how can this be modified to include all dates from 050312, currently it only shows up to the 19th but the 20th is already in the crosstab table.

SELECT tblCrosstab050312.first_name, tblCrosstab050312.surname, tblCrosstab050312.emp_no, tblCrosstab050312.Allocated_Hrs, tblCrosstab050312.Hrs_Jan_Mar, tblCrosstab050312.[Total Hrs From 050312], tblCrosstab050312.Remaining_Hrs, tblCrosstab050312.[19/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[16/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[15/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[14/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[13/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[12/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[09/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[08/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[07/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[06/03/2012], tblCrosstab050312.[05/03/2012]
FROM tblCrosstab050312;

Hi,

This syntax below was previously a make table query, now using the Select * gets me all the dates but how can I also make it a make table query  (tblCrosstab050312)


SELECT *
FROM qryEngineeringHrs050312_Crosstab INNER JOIN tblEngineersAllocatedHrs ON qryEngineeringHrs050312_Crosstab.emp_no = tblEngineersAllocatedHrs.emp_no;

Thanks

Do you not use the query design grid?
The query type is selectable once you have your basic select query defined.

Hi,

My issue all along has been how I can get specific data from a tbl and have it arranged in a specifc order, if it wasn't for the fact a new date is added to the original table each day then I could do it via the design view comfortably.

I have enclosed the tbl in question, I wish to extract in a query in the following order -

First Name, Surname, Emp_No, Alloc_Hrs, Hrs_Jan_Mar,Total Hrs, Remaining, then all the dates in descending order

As mentioned each day a new date is added to the table and I do not want to manually add this to the query (just selecting * will not give me the sort order)

Help much appreciated

OK so the nub of the issue is field order.
I that case I can see that you have a problem.  I can't see any simple change to get what you want.

I think you will have to build the select query in code.

It seems to me that you would have to get a list of distinct date field values from the table, and from that build a list of field names which can be used to build a complete sql query to select from the crosstab query.

I used this answer and with some more work carried out by myself a solution has now been achieved.
