I am having trouble creating an sql server query that uses a sub query.
I have a sub query :

SELECT TblWordTags.ClientCode, TblWordTags.ClientCodeWordPosition
FROM TblWordTags
GROUP BY TblWordTags.ClientCode, TblWordTags.ClientCodeWordPosition;

Open in new window


The main query (ive restricted it with the where for the moment)
SELECT TblWords.ClientCodeWordPosition, TblWords.ClientCode, TblWords.Word, QrySubQuery.ClientCode, TblWords.StrFull
FROM TblWords LEFT JOIN QrySubQuery ON (TblWords.ClientCodeWordPosition = QrySubQuery.ClientCodeWordPosition) AND (TblWords.ClientCode = QrySubQuery.ClientCode)
WHERE (((TblWords.ClientCode)="A01ND"));

Open in new window


Not sure how to port this over to sql server with the sub query despite reading one of the experts posts on access to sql server

the code should work as is, except the double quotes, for string values it should be single quotes.
apart from that, what are the issues?

I would use a CTE:

WITH    QrySubQuery
          AS ( SELECT   WT.ClientCode ,
                        WT.ClientCodeWordPosition
               FROM     TblWordTags WT
               GROUP BY WT.ClientCode ,
                        WT.ClientCodeWordPosition
             )
    SELECT  W.ClientCodeWordPosition ,
            W.ClientCode ,
            W.Word ,
            Q.ClientCode ,
            W.StrFull
    FROM    TblWords W
            LEFT JOIN QrySubQuery Q ON ( W.ClientCodeWordPosition = Q.ClientCodeWordPosition
                                         AND W.ClientCode = Q.ClientCode
                                       )
    WHERE   W.ClientCode = 'A01ND';
