I have a query
SELECT [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[Oracle No], [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Group, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[New Description], [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[New Long Description], [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Manufacturer, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[Manufacturers Item No], [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Noun, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute1, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute2, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute3, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute4, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute5, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute6, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute7, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute8, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].Attribute9, [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[Old Description]
FROM [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2]
WHERE ((([1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[Oracle No]) In (SELECT [Oracle No] FROM [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2] As Tmp GROUP BY [Oracle No] HAVING Count(*)>1 )))
ORDER BY [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[Oracle No];

I would like to see only the records where the New Decription field is not the same

What criteria do I need to add to the New Decription column

How about :

Select  [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[New Description], Count ( [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[New Description]) FROM [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2] group by [1 DairyCrest Master Data V2].[New Description]

that will show you ALL the New Desctiption values and how many of each there are

Hi

I am looking to see only the records where the description is different so that I can amend the description to be the same for each unique oracle number

What do you mean by "different" - that could mean comparing the first record with the last record, for example.

Can you show an example of what you want to accomplish?

Hi AW

Ok
Oracle no 1234567 may appear 2 or more times in the db
If the descriptions are all the same I do not want to see these records

But if it has different new descriptions for example
Test
Test2
Test3

I want to see these records so that I could change them all to read Test as an example

The current query only looks at where the oracle number is duplicated and I have to look at 3000 records manually to see if the descriptions are different

Hope this explanation is ok

but you would seem to allow the possibility that there could be 4 records, but two different values for New Description:

Test
Test1
Test
Test1

what would you do then?

Hi AW

I would want to see this
Only want to not see where all the new descriptions are the same
This is so that I can modify the descriptions to be the same for an oracle number
