I need a query that delineates new records that have been added for each month.  The records have a unique ID.  The update month is also a field. Please see the example data database and the desired results (excel)

Any Takers!

Hi,

maybe this query is what you want:

TRANSFORM Count([Sample Table].[ID]) AS AnzahlvonID
SELECT 'Count Of Dates' AS [Count of Dates], Count([Sample Table].[ID]) AS [Count of all]
FROM [Sample Table]
GROUP BY 'Count Of Dates'
PIVOT Format([Update Date],"Short Date");

Open in new window


You can of course also group that by "Data":

TRANSFORM Count([Sample Table].ID) AS AnzahlvonID
SELECT [Sample Table].Data, Count([Sample Table].ID) AS [Count of all]
FROM [Sample Table]
GROUP BY [Sample Table].Data
PIVOT Format([Update Date],"Short Date");

Open in new window


Cheers,

Christian

Almost...

The records are identified as new by the ID. If a new id is updated to the data it should only be count it. I want to count the only the new records added by the updated date.

Hi,

that was not clear from your example and to be exact, it is not clear from what you wrote now.

You can create a query like this to get the newest ID of each date if that is what you want:

SELECT [Sample Table].[Update Date], Max([Sample Table].ID) AS MaxvonID
FROM [Sample Table]
GROUP BY [Sample Table].[Update Date];

Open in new window


You see that any date value always only have one ID and so the result of a count in a further query would always be 1.

(That can also be transformed like in the example above but normally it's better to create normal queries than crosstab queries as these have a limitation of 255 columns.)

If that's not what you thought of then please be more exact.

A "new ID" cannot be "updated", only inserted.

Cheers,

Christian
