sql view query

I have a selection query that has to go out as an extract. I have made a union join but I am looking at the following issues with the user.

1. if PrivateService  is ticked (-1) and/or positiontype = Funeral -NSNA then the entry does not extract regardless if the display flag is ticked on the form (-1), and  the Role  is listed as contact.

Result = PASS (entry does not extract)

2. if the user has ticked display and with the Contact  Role is selected, then user changes their mind, they untick display flag and then tick PrivateService and/or positiontype = Funeral - NSNA.

Result = PASS (entry extracts with display flag 0, this alerts us to take the original extract out of the list.

3. If the data entry person, unticks display flag then ticks PRIVATESERVICE, and leaves role nominated as Contact, then changes their mind again, and ticks Display Flag the extract will come out with the flag -1

RESULT = FAIL

hmm without programming changes I don't know how I can treat this type of scenario.
Please find attached view sample file, what do you think.
Any suggestions on the view.

I am proposing a guess...

3. If the data entry person, unticks display flag then ticks PRIVATESERVICE, and leaves role nominated as Contact, then changes their mind again, and ticks Display Flag

none of these individual choices hit the database, hence the database does not even know about them., so it proceeds to evaluate the data is does know
- so to you (looking at the screen) it's a fail
but to the database it's doing what you (last) told it

as I said, a guess (but from experience, stuff like this does happen)

yes you are right I am just trying to cover all angles if the extract goes every 2 hours. I expect they would work it out in the time... but you never know.

I think you should not filter by b.todisplay inside view defination.

instead you should handle tick event and query the view accordingly.

yes I think I need to do a hierarchy and list the Permutations and get the business to decide.
