Access 2003 Query

I'm not entirely sure what happened because this worked fine on 12/15/2012 but now I am trying to run it and it isn't working.

On the query ZZZZTesting there are 2 difference columns and they are not listening to the <=-0.01 And >=0.01. Any suggestion on how to really eliminate those because there are a lot of them. What baffles me even more is why it even is giving the number. If you look at each of those columns they are exactly the same......... Help appreciated.

i think your criteria is messed up with the use of "AND", "OR"

1. remove the criteria in your query and run

SELECT bpToTake.Number, Status.Status, bpToTake.PlanType, bpToTake.Amount1, IIf([bp_qryTaken]![ETaken] Is Null,0,[bp_qryTaken]![ETaken]) AS Taken, bpToTake.Amount2, IIf(bp_qryTaken!NTB Is Null,0,bp_qryTaken!NTB) AS NTBTaken, [bpToTake]![Amount1]-[bp_qryTaken]![ETaken] AS DeltaAmount1, [bpToTake]![Amount2]-[bp_qryTaken]![NTB] AS DeltaAmount2
FROM ((Staff INNER JOIN bpToTake ON Staff.ID = bpToTake.Number) INNER JOIN Status ON Staff.ID = Status.ID) LEFT JOIN bp_qryTaken ON (bpToTake.PlanType = bp_qryTaken.Type) AND (bpToTake.Number = bp_qryTaken.Number)
ORDER BY bpToTake.Number;

2. add the criteria in DeltaAmount1 and run

SELECT bpToTake.Number, Status.Status, bpToTake.PlanType, bpToTake.Amount1, IIf([bp_qryTaken]![ETaken] Is Null,0,[bp_qryTaken]![ETaken]) AS Taken, bpToTake.Amount2, IIf(bp_qryTaken!NTB Is Null,0,bp_qryTaken!NTB) AS NTBTaken, [bpToTake]![Amount1]-[bp_qryTaken]![ETaken] AS DeltaAmount1, [bpToTake]![Amount2]-[bp_qryTaken]![NTB] AS DeltaAmount2
FROM ((Staff INNER JOIN bpToTake ON Staff.ID = bpToTake.Number) INNER JOIN Status ON Staff.ID = Status.ID) LEFT JOIN bp_qryTaken ON (bpToTake.PlanType = bp_qryTaken.Type) AND (bpToTake.Number = bp_qryTaken.Number)
WHERE ((([bpToTake]![Amount1]-[bp_qryTaken]![ETaken])<=-0.01 And ([bpToTake]![Amount1]-[bp_qryTaken]![ETaken])>=0.01))
ORDER BY bpToTake.Number;


continue adding criteria one at a time and check the result

Process of Elimination. Must remember that next time. It wasn't the one that I was looking at that was causing the problem, it was the second one. I changed the .01 to be .02 and it worked fine.
Thanks!
