Query not working

I am trying to build a query that is both a left and right join. It is saying "The SELECT statement includes a reserved word or argument name that is misspelled or missing, or the punctuation is incorrect."

My query is:

SELECT A.MessagesRecorded, A.TotalNewClients, A.BookedTrue, A.TalkedTo, A.PercentBooked, A.FiveMinCallBack, A.PercentinFive, A.DateField, B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice as B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice
FROM qryStatsIndividual as A
LEFT JOIN qryBookingDayswithYearII B
ON A.DateField = B.DateField
UNION ALL
SELECT NULL AS MessagesRecorded, NULL AS TotalNewClients, NULL AS BookedTrue, NULL AS TalkedTo, NULL AS PercentBooked, NULL AS FiveMinCallBack, NULL AS PercentinFive, B.DateField, B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice
FROM qryBookingDayswithYearII as B
LEFT JOIN qryStatsIndividual A
ON B.DateField = A.DateField
WHERE A.DateField IS NULL

If you go into the query designer in Access, you can set the view to either:

1. Design - Where you get the grid to construct a query
2. Datasheet - Where you see the results
3. SQL - View.

 So you can work this one of two ways:

1. Design your query using design view, then switch to SQL view to see the resulting statement.

2. Cut and paste a SQL statement into the query when it's in SQL view, then switch to design view.

  If your having trouble with a statement, you can break it up (do the select first, then add on the Where, Order by, etc).

 This really helps a lot when doing SQL statements in code.

 I don't see anything right off and since it's not overly complicated, I would suggest doing #1.  

  You can do this for each of the selects, then in SQL view UNION ALL them to test the complete statement once you have the two individual selects working.

 Note that you won't be able to switch to design view for the UNION.  The graphical query designer can't do a Union or SQL pass through that way.

You missed an AS:

LEFT JOIN qryBookingDayswithYearII B

should be

LEFT JOIN qryBookingDayswithYearII AS B

Just fixed that, thanks! Still giving me the same error:

SELECT A.MessagesRecorded, A.TotalNewClients, A.BookedTrue, A.TalkedTo, A.PercentBooked, A.FiveMinCallBack, A.PercentinFive, A.DateField, B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice as B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice
FROM qryStatsIndividual as A
LEFT JOIN qryBookingDayswithYearII AS B
ON A.DateField = B.DateField
UNION ALL
SELECT NULL AS MessagesRecorded, NULL AS TotalNewClients, NULL AS BookedTrue, NULL AS TalkedTo, NULL AS PercentBooked, NULL AS FiveMinCallBack, NULL AS PercentinFive, B.DateField, B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice
FROM qryBookingDayswithYearII as B
LEFT JOIN qryStatsIndividual A
ON B.DateField = A.DateField
WHERE A.DateField IS NULL

BTW, same thing here:

LEFT JOIN qryStatsIndividual A

Should be:

LEFT JOIN qryStatsIndividual As A

Also, just to be clear, each statement before and after the UNION ALL needs to stand on it's own.

Copy/Paste each statement into the query desinger when in SQL view and see if they fly.

Unfortunately, it's still doing it. What do you mean by Copy/Past each statement? Where would the error be? I miss spell a field name?

To show the idea using simple tables:
a(a, ...)
a
1
2
4

b(b, ...)
1
2
5

Select a.a, b.b From a Left Join b On a.a=b.b
Union All
Select a.a, b.b From b Left Join a On b.a=a.b;

a b
1 1
2 2
4
  5

try this


SELECT A.MessagesRecorded, A.TotalNewClients, A.BookedTrue, A.TalkedTo, A.PercentBooked, A.FiveMinCallBack, A.PercentinFive, A.DateField, B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice
FROM qryStatsIndividual as A
LEFT JOIN qryBookingDayswithYearII AS B
ON A.DateField = B.DateField
UNION ALL
SELECT NULL AS MessagesRecorded, NULL AS TotalNewClients, NULL AS BookedTrue, NULL AS TalkedTo, NULL AS PercentBooked, NULL AS FiveMinCallBack, NULL AS PercentinFive, B.DateField, B.SumOfSumOfExtendedPrice
FROM qryBookingDayswithYearII as B
LEFT JOIN qryStatsIndividual A
ON B.DateField = A.DateField
WHERE A.DateField IS NULL

Thanks for your help Jim! It worked. Now it is giving me some "overflow" problem. I'll open another question for that. Thanks again!
