Good Day Experts!

I am not sure if I can do all the required "checks" in one query.  Hopefully you can help me find out if it is possible and how to do it.

Status table:
     - InvoiceNumber
     - TrackingNumber
     - ServiceFailure
     - SFRejected
     - DatePC

DWINonPay table:
     - InvoiceNumber
     - TrackingNumber
     - DateImported

Select * from Status with the following requirements:

Requirements:
     - Status.ServiceFailure = 1
     AND
     - Status.SFRejected = 1
     AND
     - (DW1NonPay InvoiceNumber/TrackingNumber from Status not found
        OR
       (DW1NonPay InvoiceNumber/TrackingNumber from Status found but
        DW1NonPay.DateImported > Status.DatePC)

Please ask questions and let me know your opinions.

Thanks,

Not sure what you are trying to check?  Do the requirements mentioned above reflect individual checks, or are you simply trying to identify all the records across the two tables that satisfy all of those requirements, in a single query?

Try this:
SELECT t1.* 
    FROM Status t1
         LEFT JOIN DWINonPay t2 ON t1.InvoiceNumber = t2.InvoiceNumber 
              AND t1.TrackingNumber = t2.TrackingNumber
    WHERE 
    (
        t1.ServiceFailure = 1
        AND t1.SFRejected = 1
        AND
        (
             t2.DateImported IS NULL
             OR t2.DateImported > t1.DatePC
        )
    )

Hello fyed:

Your second part is what I am trying to do...I am just not that good at complicated SQL query "stuff":

"trying to identify all the records across the two tables that satisfy all of those requirements in a single query"

Thanks,

Hello carl_tawn:

Can you help me understand your query as I am not very good at complicated SQL query "stuff"?  Is it adding subsets of data together from both tables?

Thanks,

No, it is doing a LEFT JOIN between the tables, so it will join but return NULL where there is no match. The rest is just applying the rules you listed, the brackets group the logic.

I am finally able to get back to this project and have received known data samples to test the query and logic in my code to.

Thanks for the responses and I will try them,
