I have a table in MS Access that has time related data and I need to select only the pressure at the minimum depth and maximum depth for each well in each time.

Please find the MS Access table attached and I am expecting to have the following results from the query.

Well   Date           Pressure_Min_depth          Pressure_Max_depth
1       1/1/2013                  2333                         46784
1       3/22/2014                 6768                        54654
2       4/1/2014                   2333                        6768

Probably a more elegant way of getting this, but define one query as:

SELECT Table1.well, Table1.xdate, Min(Table1.depth) AS MinOfdepth, Max(Table1.depth) AS MaxOfdepth
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.well, Table1.xdate;

Then a second query of:

SELECT qryWellDepths.well, qryWellDepths.xdate, qryWellDepths.MinOfdepth, Table1.pressure, qryWellDepths.MaxOfdepth, Table1_1.pressure
FROM (qryWellDepths INNER JOIN Table1 ON (qryWellDepths.MinOfdepth = Table1.depth) AND (qryWellDepths.well = Table1.well) AND (qryWellDepths.xdate = Table1.xdate)) INNER JOIN Table1 AS Table1_1 ON (qryWellDepths.MaxOfdepth = Table1_1.depth) AND (qryWellDepths.xdate = Table1_1.xdate) AND (qryWellDepths.well = Table1_1.well);

Jim,

I need the pressure at the max depth and min depth not the depth.

That's what I gave you.  For each well, for each day, the min depth, pressure at that depth, and the max depth and the pressure at that depth.

try this query


Select T.well,T.xdate As [Date], Min(T.Pressure) as Pressure_Min_depth,  Max(T.Pressure) as Pressure_Max_depth
From
(
SELECT A.Well, A.xdate, A.MinOfdepth AS Depth, B.Pressure
FROM (SELECT Table1.well, Table1.xdate, Min(Table1.depth) AS MinOfdepth
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.well, Table1.xdate
UNION ALL
SELECT Table1.well, Table1.xdate, Max(Table1.depth) AS MinOfdepth
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.well, Table1.xdate
Order By 1,2,3
)  AS A INNER JOIN Table1 AS B ON (A.Well = B.Well) AND (A.xDate = B.xDate) AND (A.MinOfdepth = B.Depth)
ORDER BY A.Well, A.xdate, A.MinOfdepth, B.Pressure
) As T
Group By  T.well,T.xdate
