Hey guys,

I am having trouble writing a query to sum some values in table 2 and bring to table 1.

See attached picture. I am getting $97.50 on the transaction side for both records, however I am expecting $32.50 for record 1 and $65.00 for record 2.

Here is my SQL, bold section is the part in question.

ado_Transaction.RecordSource = "select " _
& "POSHEADER.transact, POSHEADER.snum, POSHEADER.statnum, whoclose, timeend, " _
& "case when POSHEADER.finaltotal > 0 then 'Sale' else 'Return' end, " _
& "case when POSHEADER.status = 3 then 'Successful' else 'Failed' end, " _
& "METHODPAY.descript, (select sum(costeach*quan) from dba.posdetail where prodtype in(0,1) and opendate = " & lbl_OpenDate.Caption & " group by posheader.transact) , finaltotal, tax1, whoclose " _
& "from dba.POSHEADER, dba.HOWPAID, dba.METHODPAY " _
& "where POSHEADER.transact = HOWPAID.transact and " _
& "HOWPAID.methodnum = METHODPAY.methodnum and " _
& "HOWPAID.approved = 1 and " _
& "POSHEADER.opendate = " & lbl_OpenDate.Caption _
& "order by POSHEADER.transact"

your subquery needs to be correlated to your main query
perhaps something like this...


(  SELECT SUM(costeach * quan)
              FROM dba.posdetail
             WHERE prodtype IN (0, 1) AND opendate =  " & lbl_OpenDate.Caption _
             and posdetail.prodnum = posheader.prodnum
          GROUP BY posheader.transact),


I'm just guessing at what the correlating column might be.  It might be more than one.
But you need to include something in the subquery that restricts the sum to the rows you're interested in

as an aside, you should look into using bind variables instead of string concatenation.  It'll make your development MUCH easier in the long run and more secure as well
