Good day everyone. I have a dilemma. I have a query that I am attempting to construct in Access 2007. It has a unique id and 5 different values for 5 different years.

What I want to do is write the query where is all 5 values are the same value, do not include.

How can this be done?

Here is an example as data attached.

In this example the query I am trying to construct would all columns in  ID 6344, 6754, 5986, and 5846 as the other two ID have all the same values in all 5 year columns.

You could do it with boolean logic in a WHERE clause:

SELECT *
FROM SomeTable
WHERE Not (Year08 = Year09 And Year08 = Year10 And Year08 = Year11 And Year08 = Year12)

Open in new window
