Query to look for accounts with both positive and negative values

I have a table (tblInvoices) that has three (relevant) fields:

- AccountNumber
- InvoiceNumber
- InvoiceAmount

Some of the invoice amounts are positive and some are negative.

I'm looking for a query that will show all the accounts that have both positive and negative invoice amounts (i.e. an account that has at least one invoice that is positive and at least one invoice that is negative).

It doesn't matter to me if the query results show just one line for each matching AccountNumber of if the query results show all the invoices for each matching AccountNumber.

Thanks in advance!

Change the code below to ">= 0" if by positive you mean "0 or more" rather than "more than 0":


SELECT
    AccountNumber,
    SUM(CASE WHEN InvoiceAmount > 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Positive_Invoice_Count,
    SUM(CASE WHEN InvoiceAmount < 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Negative_Invoice_Count
FROM tblInvoices
GROUP BY
    AccountNumber
HAVING
    SUM(CASE WHEN InvoiceAmount > 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) >= 1 AND
    SUM(CASE WHEN InvoiceAmount < 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) >= 1
0

or
SELECT DISTINCT Table1.AccountNumber, Table1.InvoiceNumber, Table1.InvoiceAmount
FROM Table1
WHERE (((Table1.InvoiceAmount)>0)) OR (((Table1.InvoiceAmount)<=0));

This works:

SELECT tblInvoices.AccountNumber
FROM tblInvoices
WHERE tblInvoices.InvoiceAmount>0 And
tblInvoices.AccountNumber IN (SELECT tblInvoices.AccountNumber FROM tblInvoices WHERE tblInvoices.InvoiceAmount<0)
ORDER BY tblInvoices.AccountNumber;
0

Could we see the answer?  That would add the solution to the EE db, and allow us to confirm that it was independent of the answers provided here.

In order to avoid confusion, here it is again:

SELECT tblInvoices.AccountNumber
FROM tblInvoices
WHERE tblInvoices.InvoiceAmount>0 And
tblInvoices.AccountNumber IN (SELECT tblInvoices.AccountNumber FROM tblInvoices WHERE tblInvoices.InvoiceAmount<0)
ORDER BY tblInvoices.AccountNumber;
0
