Discrepency in values returned by queries

Hello,

I have three queries that I am using to populate a spreadsheet.  The number of records returned by query 1 should equal the sum of the records from query 2 and query 3.  However, query 1 is returning 2799 records while the sum of the records returned by queries 2 and 3 is 2900 records.  There is a difference of 101 records.  I've been trying to figure out why I'm getting this discrepancy.

Query 1
SELECT DISTINCT NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code
FROM ((NE_StockInAllWarehouses LEFT JOIN dbo_query_Item_Master ON NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code=dbo_query_Item_Master.Item_Code) LEFT JOIN dbo_query_Item_Group ON (dbo_query_Item_Master.Item_Group=dbo_query_Item_Group.Item_Group) AND (dbo_query_Item_Master.Site_Code=dbo_query_Item_Group.Site_Code)) LEFT JOIN Planner_Location ON dbo_query_Item_Master.Planner_Code=Planner_Location.Planner_Code
WHERE (Planner_Location.Location="LTN" Or Planner_Location.Location="QRO") AND (dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E01" Or dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E02" Or dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E03")
GROUP BY NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code;

Query 2
SELECT DISTINCT NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code
FROM ((NE_StockInAllWarehouses LEFT JOIN dbo_query_Item_Master ON NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code = dbo_query_Item_Master.Item_Code) LEFT JOIN dbo_query_Item_Group ON (dbo_query_Item_Master.Item_Group = dbo_query_Item_Group.Item_Group) AND (dbo_query_Item_Master.Site_Code = dbo_query_Item_Group.Site_Code)) LEFT JOIN Planner_Location ON dbo_query_Item_Master.Planner_Code = Planner_Location.Planner_Code
WHERE Planner_Location.Location="LTN" AND (dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E01" Or dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E02" Or dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E03")
GROUP BY NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code;

Open in new window

Query 3
SELECT DISTINCT NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code
FROM ((NE_StockInAllWarehouses LEFT JOIN dbo_query_Item_Master ON NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code=dbo_query_Item_Master.Item_Code) LEFT JOIN dbo_query_Item_Group ON (dbo_query_Item_Master.Item_Group=dbo_query_Item_Group.Item_Group) AND (dbo_query_Item_Master.Site_Code=dbo_query_Item_Group.Site_Code)) LEFT JOIN Planner_Location ON dbo_query_Item_Master.Planner_Code=Planner_Location.Planner_Code
WHERE Planner_Location.Location="QRO" AND (dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E01" Or dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E02" Or dbo_query_Item_Master.Signal_Code="E03")
GROUP BY NE_StockInAllWarehouses.Item_Code;

There is likely overlap between the [Item_Code] values returned by query2 and query3.  Save those two queries and then run this query:

SELECT Q2.[Item_Code]
FROM query2 as Q2 INNER JOIN query3 as Q3
ON Q2.Item_Code = Q3.Item_Code

This will identify the [Item_Code] values that are in common between the two queries.

Hello Dale,

I found out the problem and it was an overlap problem.  I added some additional criteria, and that resolved the issue.

Juan.
