Finding an IP Address within a range in an Access query

Hi Experts

In the example database attached I have created 2 tables, tblCentres and tblData. tblCentres has the Centre IDs and Names associated with an IP Address. tblData has an export of web browsing data.

I have managed to convert the IPAddress to a 12-digit number in qryCentres-Ranges and create a From and To range for each Centre. I have done the same for the IPAddress in qryData-Ranges.

I would like to create an output query (qryOUTPUT) which looks like the attached excel example where all data has been grouped and summed and the correct CentreID and CentreName has been inserted.

In my original Data table I have at least 100,000 records and in the Centres I have 1500+. As my dataset is large I need a solution that will process fairly quickly and not hang upon running.

Can anybody please help with a way of how to achieve this?

Thanks

I didn't get a chance to look at everything in your database but I just noted that you can simplify your calculation for RangeTo in qryCentres-Ranges with like this:
NewRangeTo: Format([PartIFrom],"000.") & Format([PartIIFrom],"000.") & Format([PartIIIFrom]+Choose([MyNum],63,31,15,7),"000.""255""")
MyNum: Mid([IPAddress],InStr([IPAddress],"/")+1)-17

Be careful with that formatting as leading zeros turn the values from decimal to octal:

Thank you for providing the tip gustav, this is good to know.

IrogSinta, thanks for your solution. I tried it with my query & found it to be extremely slow so I created tables instead and the results are almost instant!

Thanks again for your help Experts!
