Hi Everyone,

Can someone assist me in forming a query.  I've included a sample database.

My table has multiple fields however I want to use the fields BI_Part_nr, Competitor, Comp_Item_number, comp_price to create a query.

The table has multiple records which I want to consolidate to

BI_Part_nr (Group), competitor (Where Camozzi or Cmatic), field[comp_price_Camozzi]],field[comp_price_Cmatic]

I was able to create sub queries, however I coudn't get all the data to populate in one record tied to BI_Part_Nr.

Thanks!

try this query


SELECT xref.BI_Part_nr, Sum(IIf([Competitor]="Camozzi",[comp_price],0)) AS comp_price_Camozzi, Sum(IIf([Competitor]="Cmatic",[comp_price],0)) AS comp_price_Cmatic
FROM xref
GROUP BY xref.BI_Part_nr;

or this one

SELECT xref.BI_Part_nr, xref.Comp_Item_nr, Sum(IIf([Competitor]="Camozzi",[comp_price],0)) AS comp_price_Camozzi, Sum(IIf([Competitor]="Cmatic",[comp_price],0)) AS comp_price_Cmatic
FROM xref
GROUP BY xref.BI_Part_nr, xref.Comp_Item_nr;

For instance, record 1368 and 2981have the same BI PN, PCNB2405-04-04, however a one has a price for Camozzi (1.98)  and one price for Cmatic (1.89)

I'd like to see the result as

BI_Part_nr, CamozziPrice, CMaticPrice
PCNB2405-04-04, 1.98, 1.89

Thanks Cap.  The first query is what I wanted.

I'll pick it apart and figure out how to do it next time!
