How to compare two tables in access and filter by two criteria

esbyrt asked
Last Modified: 2016-01-08
HI. I am building an employee database. I have two subforms on the employee form in a tab control. There is a Certification Required subform and a Certifications Held subform. I need to compare the certs required to the certs held and return a list of missing or expired certifications. I can put that in another subform/tab or as a report. I need to filter the results by employee ID and also by Position ID. Certs required varies by Position ID. Can this be done in a query?
I have attached my database in progress. It isn't pretty yet but the basic function should be clear. Thanks!
