MS-ACCESS conditional SELECT

In MS-ACCESS I have two tables, say T1 and T2, both of them with fields T1.Customer_No, T1.AMOUNT, T1.TRADE_ID and T1.DATE1 fields and T2.Customer_No, T2.AMOUNT_1, T2.AMOUNT_2 and T2.DATE1.
I need to select all rows from T1 where :

T1.AMOUNT = ABS(T2.AMOUNT_1) *OR* T1.AMOUNT = ABS(T2.AMOUNT_2)
and additionally
T1.DATE1 = T2.DATE1

Constraint: if T2.AMOUNT_1 is null or T2.AMOUNT_2 is null, then I don't want any comparison (excluded records).

(No I can't join customer ids)
Any help appreciated.

Give this a try for your where statement

Where T1.DATE1=T2.DATE1 and 
((T1.AMOUNT = ABS(T2.AMOUNT_1))  OR (T1.AMOUNT = ABS(T2.AMOUNT_2)))
and NOT T2.AMOUNT_1 Is Null and NOT T2.AMOUNT_2 Is Null
