Probably simpler to just create the whole query in code.  See the following for info/sample code using querydefs:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/bb177500(v=office.12).aspx


Your code might look something like this:


Sub CreateQuery()
     dim strSQL as string
     dim qdf as QueryDef

     strSQL = "SELECT Field1, Field2, Region FROM YourTable WHERE core = '" & me.txtCore & "' ORDER BY [GroupBy]"
      
     set qdf = Currentdb.CreateQueryDef("qryMyQuery", strSQL)
     docmd,OpenQuery "qryMyQuery"
end sub

Open in new window



but better... create a form in datasheet view, including any needed fields,  and change the recordsource dynamically like this:

Sub CreateQuery()
     dim strSQL as string
     dim qdf as QueryDef

     strSQL = "SELECT Field1, Field2, Region FROM YourTable WHERE core = '" & me.txtCore & "' ORDER BY [GroupBy]"
      

     docmd.OpenForm "frmMyFormName"
     forms!MyformName.Recordsource = strSQL
end sub

Open in new window

Mbizup...

excellent feedback....as always...

just one last point if I was to revert the query back to its original state I.e. remove the region field....what would the vba be?

Are there some conditions where you want the field and other conditions where you dont?  If so, just include them in the code and add the field accordingly:

Sub CreateQuery()
     dim strSQL as string
     dim qdf as QueryDef

    ' For example, if you have a 'Use region' checkbox:
     If chkUseRegion = true then

            strSQL = "SELECT Field1, Field2, Region FROM YourTable WHERE core = '" & me.txtCore & "' ORDER BY [GroupBy]"
      else
            strSQL = "SELECT Field1, Field2 FROM YourTable WHERE core = '" & me.txtCore & "' ORDER BY [GroupBy]"
     End if

    ' etcetera

Not 100%clear what you are asking for, but try this:


' To create a query including region
Sub CreateQuery()
     dim strSQL as string
     dim qdf as QueryDef

     strSQL = "SELECT Field1, Field2, Region FROM YourTable WHERE core = '" & me.txtCore & "' ORDER BY [GroupBy]"
      
     set qdf = Currentdb.CreateQueryDef("qryMyQuery", strSQL)
     docmd.OpenQuery "qryMyQuery"
end sub

Open in new window


To go back to not including region
Sub RevertQuery()

     dim strSQL as string
     dim qdf as QueryDef

      ' Delete the query
      currentdb.QueryDefs.Delete  "qryMyQuery"

     ' Recreate it without Region
     strSQL = "SELECT Field1, Field2 FROM YourTable WHERE core = '" & me.txtCore & "' ORDER BY [GroupBy]"
      
     set qdf = Currentdb.CreateQueryDef("qryMyQuery", strSQL)
     docmd.OpenQuery "qryMyQuery"
end sub

Finally, I'm not sure how you intend to use this... and it is a good academic exercise... but I am almost certain that this is NOT the optimal way to build your database,

to preserve the original sql statement you have to store it in a variable and used it back when your done with adding/altering the original sql statement


dim oSql as string, qd as dao.querydef, db as dao.database
set db=currentdb
set qd=db.querydefs("qry salesbyarea")

oSql=qd.sql

'do your thing here
strSql="select..... <with added> fields ..etc.."
qd.sql=strSQl




'now return the original sql statement
qd.sql=oSql
