Ms Access Query - Can this query be redesigned to provide summary data only

The query below produces enrollment data for every grade in the school for a given year.  I would like to create a query that provides just a total enrollment number per school for the given year.  The current query when parameters are applied produces the following as an example:

School A for a certain year
Grade 6 100
Grade 7 100
Grade 8 100

I have a report that sums the totals and compares them.  I would like a query that does the summing for use in other reports.  For example when the year parameters are applied I just want the total as below.

School A 300

My current sql follows

SELECT enrollment.er_school_id, Sum(IIf([Year]=forms!select_dates!current_year,[enroll_data],0)) AS [Current Enrollment], Sum(IIf([Year]=forms!select_dates!proposed_year,[enroll_data],0)) AS [Proposed Enrollment], ([Proposed Enrollment]-[Current Enrollment]) AS [+/- Enrollment], enrollment.enroll_desc, enrollment.erdisplay_order, schools.schoollName, schools.school_id, Enroll_gradeNames.dgrdisplay_order, schools.Type
FROM schools INNER JOIN (enrollment LEFT JOIN Enroll_gradeNames ON enrollment.enroll_desc = Enroll_gradeNames.Grade_name) ON schools.school_id = enrollment.er_school_id
WHERE (((schools.open_date)<="forms]![select_dates]![current_year]") AND ((schools.close_date)>=[forms]![select_dates]![proposed_year]))
GROUP BY enrollment.er_school_id, enrollment.enroll_desc, enrollment.erdisplay_order, schools.schoollName, schools.school_id, Enroll_gradeNames.dgrdisplay_order, schools.Type;

copy your above query and save with a different name
modify the new query by removing the table "Enroll_gradeNames"

see if you come out with the result you want.


if the query did not return the  desired result, it will help if you can upload a copy of the db  with the relevant forms and tables.

Try this:

SELECT enrollment.er_school_id, Sum(IIf([Year]=forms!select_dates!current_year,[enroll_data],0)) AS [Current Enrollment], Sum(IIf([Year]=forms!select_dates!proposed_year,[enroll_data],0)) AS [Proposed Enrollment], ([Proposed Enrollment]-[Current Enrollment]) AS [+/- Enrollment],  schools.schoollName, schools.school_id
FROM schools INNER JOIN (enrollment LEFT JOIN Enroll_gradeNames ON enrollment.enroll_desc = Enroll_gradeNames.Grade_name) ON schools.school_id = enrollment.er_school_id
WHERE (((schools.open_date)<="forms]![select_dates]![current_year]") AND ((schools.close_date)>=[forms]![select_dates]![proposed_year]))
GROUP BY enrollment.er_school_id,   schools.schoollName, schools.school_id;

I don't think there is any need to change the query at all.  So what you have is a report that looks something like:

School A
    6th Grade  100
    7th Grade  100
    8th Grade  100
School B
    6th Grade  120
    7th Grade    98
    8th Grade  110

If that is correct, and you are grouping by school with the grade counts in the details section, you could set the detail sections Visible property to false (or make the height = zero), and move the school info from the Group Header (set that height to zero) to the Group Footer.  So in the Group Footer you would have two fields:

School Name        Enrollment
School A                  300
School B                  328

For the total enrollment, you would use the following as the control source for that textbox located in the group footer.

= Sum([Enrollment])

All options presented worked.  Thank you.  For some reason i could not see how simple this was to do.   Happy New Year!
