Hello all

Yesterday I posted a question regarding needing a query to pull all of the last records of every itemID that is ActiveYN = Yes.

My table [t_Dtail] has fields

DetailID,  tdate, ItemID, ActiveYN

MGozreh suggested:
SELECT t_Dtail.ItemID, Max(t_Dtail.tdate) AS MaxDate
FROM t_Dtail
WHERE (((t_Dtail.ActiveYN)=True))
GROUP BY t_Dtail.ItemID; 

Open in new window

Capricorn1 suggested:
select a.*
from t_dtail as a
inner join
(select max(b.tdate) as maxtdate, b.itemid
 from t_dtail as b
 group by b.itemid,b.ActiveYN
having b.ActiveYN= true
) as c
on a.itemid = c.itemid  and a.tdate=c.maxtdate 

Open in new window


Both worked.....

HOWEVER.  Now I have to modify it
My Fields will now be:
DetailID, InvID, tdate, ItemID, ActiveYN

Now I have to get all of the Last Records for Each [ItemID] Where ActiveYN is True EXCEPT FOR any DetailID that has the LAST [InvID] (which is the Primary Key in another table.

I have attempted this code:
SELECT a.*
FROM 
t_Dtail AS z 
INNER JOIN 
(t_dtail AS a 
INNER JOIN 
(SELECT max(b.tdate) AS maxtdate, b.itemid FROM t_dtail AS b 
INNER JOIN 
(SELECT Max(w.InvID) as MaxInvID FROM t_dtail AS w 
GROUP BY b.itemid, b.ActiveYN 
HAVING b.ActiveYN=True)  AS c 
ON (a.tdate = c.maxtdate) AND (a.itemid = c.itemid)) 
ON (a.InvID = w.MaxInvID);

Open in new window


BUT, it doesn't like the way I write it  ..   ;-(

Getting an Error on My JOIN clause

I also think I have to have a WHERE clause in there to say to Select a where a.InvID is NOT the z.MaxInvID

OK.

Upload

Expected Result is for InvID it would Not use the Max which in this case is
for ItemID

1 - 24
2 - 24
5 - 24
6 - 24

3 - 23
4 - 23

Thus the Max ItemID with ActiveYN of TRUE Excluding the MaxInvID is


1 - 21
2 - 21
3 - 22
4 - 22
5 - 22
6 - 22

Hi

I'm not sure i understand what you need, but maybe this will help you

SELECT t_Dtail.ItemID, Max(t_Dtail.tdate) AS MaxDate
FROM t_Dtail LEFT JOIN (SELECT Max(t_Dtail.DetailID) AS MaxOfDetailID, t_Dtail.InvID
FROM t_Dtail
GROUP BY t_Dtail.InvID)  AS LastDetail ON t_Dtail.DetailID = LastDetail.MaxOfDetailID
WHERE (((t_Dtail.ActiveYN)=True) AND ((LastDetail.MaxOfDetailID) Is Null))
GROUP BY t_Dtail.ItemID;

Open in new window


Do you want to remove the last DetailID from the InvID, or the Last InvID from the ItemID ?

nGozreg,,,

Close... I was looking for the Max ItemID for the Max INVID EXCLUDING whatever the MaxInvID is for each ItemID

With ActiveYN=True

So That's remove the Last INVID

Try this
SELECT t_Dtail.ItemID, Max(t_Dtail.tdate) AS MaxDate
FROM t_Dtail LEFT JOIN 
(SELECT Max(t_dtail.InvID) AS MaxInvID, t_dtail.ItemID
FROM t_dtail
WHERE (((t_dtail.ActiveYN)=True))
GROUP BY t_dtail.ItemID)  AS LastInvID 
ON t_Dtail.InvID = LastInvID.MaxInvID
WHERE (((t_Dtail.ActiveYN)=True) AND ((LastInvID.MaxInvID) Is Null))
GROUP BY t_Dtail.ItemID;

CLOSER.....

That gives me the list but when I add t_dtail.[InvID] to the results (which I need) I get all records other than the last record (which I wanted excluded) But I only wanted the LAST (Max) tdate for each InvID (again, excluding the last one)

Hope the above made sense


Seems like you almost have to have two inner joins or left joins (but I REALLY don't know)
One to get the Max date for every INVID then using that MaxDate for Each INVID selecting the Last INVID Excluding the one for Each InvID found in step 1
