Hello all,
Last night I posted a question regarding pulling the last Item of all Items.  Got that to work...Thanks....  However, I took that theory and tried going to the next step

I have a query that is a combination of several tables.  I am wanting to get the Last input of each Item ([MachPollPositionID]).  I tried this
SELECT InfoDtailID, MachPollPositionID, MachPulledYN, MAX(MachPollPositionID) AS MaxPollPos, MAX(BusDay) AS MaxBusDay
FROM qry_InfoDetails_LastPull
WHERE (((qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPulledYN)=TRUE))
GROUP BY qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.InfoDtailID, qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPollPositionID, qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPulledYN;

Open in new window


However, I am getting all the Items MachPollPositionID

My source query's data looks like this:

FIELDS (COLUMNS Below)
InfoDtailID
InfoID
MachPollPositionID
AmtIn
MachPulledYN
ShiftID
InfoDate
MachinePoll
BusDay

12      1      1      $0.00      Yes      1      1/1/2014 3:43:46 PM      1      1/1/2014
13      1      2      $0.00      Yes      1      1/1/2014 3:43:46 PM      2      1/1/2014
14      1      3      $0.00      Yes      1      1/1/2014 3:43:46 PM      3      1/1/2014
15      1      4      $0.00      Yes      1      1/1/2014 3:43:46 PM      4      1/1/2014
16      1      5      $0.00      Yes      1      1/1/2014 3:43:46 PM      5      1/1/2014
32      5      1      $0.00      Yes      6      1/22/2014 12:31:59 AM      1      1/21/2014
36      5      5      $0.00      Yes      6      1/22/2014 12:31:59 AM      5      1/21/2014

What I expected is that my new query would have pulled for PollPositionID the date:
1  1/21/2014
2  1/1/2014
3  1/1/2014
4  1/1/2014
5  1/21/2014

However, I'm simply ending up with the same query as my results above....It's not giving me the MAX date for each PollPositionID

It looks like you are grouping on the InfoDtailID...this is different in each table right?  You will have to remove it from your final query if you want the last date across all tables.

Have you tried adding this to the where clause?
MachPollPositionID =MAX(MachPollPositionID)

Uggh....So is there a way to get that InfoDtailID for the records that it does select?

Yes, but you need to do it as 2 query steps.  Step 1, get the query to return the uniquly identifying fields (id and maybe date).  Step 2, join the results of that query to this one to get the full details of those records.

Thanks for the help SickSkilz.

WlWebb I looked at your original query and modified it to give you the ID for the max day.  I'm not familiar with your data though so you'll want to verify the joins.
SELECT lp.MachPollPositionID, lp.MachPulledYN, lp.MaxPollPOS, lp.MaxBusDay, lpbid.InfoDtailID as MaxInfoDtailID
FROM (
SELECT MachPollPositionID, MachPulledYN, MAX(MachPollPositionID) AS MaxPollPos, MAX(BusDay) AS MaxBusDay
FROM qry_InfoDetails_LastPull
WHERE (((qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPulledYN)=TRUE))
GROUP BY qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPollPositionID, qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPulledYN) lp
INNER JOIN (
SELECT InfoDtailID, MachPollPositionID, MachPulledYN, MAX(MachPollPositionID) AS MaxPollPosByID, MAX(BusDay) AS MaxBusDayByID
FROM qry_InfoDetails_LastPull
WHERE (((qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPulledYN)=TRUE))
GROUP BY qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.InfoDtailID, qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPollPositionID, qry_InfoDetails_LastPull.MachPulledYN) lpbid ON lp.MaxPollPOS=lpbid.MaxPollPOSByID AND lp.MaxBusDay=lpbid.MaxBusDayByID
