Condense query to one

I currently am using 4 queries that I would like to condense to one query. The first query collects data from the current day, the 2nd is Current Week, the third is Last week, and the 4th is Current Year.

Right now the 4 queries are identical with a different label and where clause. I have their individual codes below. Is there a way to do this on one query. I believe that query would have columns titled "Day", "CurrentWeek", "LastWeek", and "Year". If the date falls into the appropriate category, that row would say "Day" in the day column. If not, it would be blank.

Query for Day:
SELECT qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, Sum(qryBookingTotals.ExtendedPrice) AS SumOfExtendedPrice, Sum(qryBookingTotals.CountOfDAY) AS SumOfCountOfDAY, "ADAY" AS DateSpec
FROM qryBookingTotals
WHERE (((DateValue(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#)))=DateValue(Now())))
GROUP BY qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, "ADAY";

Open in new window


Query for CurrentWeek:
SELECT qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, Sum(qryBookingTotals.ExtendedPrice) AS SumOfExtendedPrice, Sum(qryBookingTotals.CountOfDAY) AS SumOfCountOfDAY, "CURRENTWEEK" AS DateSpec
FROM qryBookingTotals
WHERE (((Format(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"wwyy"))=Format(Now(),"wwyy")))
GROUP BY qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, "CURRENTWEEK";

Open in new window


Query for Last week:
SELECT qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, Sum(qryBookingTotals.ExtendedPrice) AS SumOfExtendedPrice, Sum(qryBookingTotals.CountOfDAY) AS SumOfCountOfDAY, "LASTWEEK" AS DateSpec
FROM qryBookingTotals
WHERE (((Format(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"wwyy"))=Format(Date()-7,"wwyy")))
GROUP BY qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, "LASTWEEK";

Open in new window


Query for Year:
SELECT qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, Sum(qryBookingTotals.ExtendedPrice) AS SumOfExtendedPrice, Sum(qryBookingTotals.CountOfDAY) AS SumOfCountOfDAY, "YEAR" AS DateSpec
FROM qryBookingTotals
WHERE (((Format(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"yyyy"))=Format(Now(),"yyyy")))
GROUP BY qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded, "YEAR";

One possibility, if all the displayed fields are the same, is to use the UNION command.

I forget how to do this in the Access interface, but if you go to the SQL window, just paste each query and put the word UNION between them:

select query1...
UNION
select query2...
UNION
select query3...
UNION
select query4

In some cases, this may not work, so try it in a new blank query.  Also, the Access query window will typically not show the 4 queries is you go to design view.

in non-access SQL this could be achieved by placing a case expression inside a SUM() function e.g. (sort of like this)

, SUM(case when DateRecorded = today*       then somevalue end) as this_day
, SUM(case when DateRecorded in thisweek* then somevalue end) as this_week

My Access skills are rubbish, but the same effect can be achieved using IIF() inside the SUM()

So if you really want to do this in one pass over the data (instead of 4) that is how I would go about doing it - pity is I can't offer to whole query


*today & "in thisweek" don't have to really exist, there are concepts not functions or system variables

something along theses lines (I think) (!untested!)
SELECT qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded
, SUM( IIF((DateValue(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#)))=DateValue(Now()),qryBookingTotals.ExtendedPrice,0) ) AS SumOfExtendedPrice_Day
, SUM( IIF((DateValue(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#)))=DateValue(Now()),qryBookingTotals.CountOfDAY,0) )    AS SumOfCountOfDAY_Day

, SUM( IIF((Format(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"wwyy"))=Format(Now(),"wwyy"),qryBookingTotals.ExtendedPrice,0) ) AS SumOfExtendedPrice_week
, SUM( IIF((Format(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"wwyy"))=Format(Now(),"wwyy"),qryBookingTotals.CountOfDAY,0) )    AS SumOfCountOfDAY_week

WHERE (((Format(Nz([qryBookingTotals].[DateRecorded],#1/1/1950#),"yyyy"))=Format(Now(),"yyyy")))
GROUP BY qryBookingTotals.DateRecorded
