Hello! I was looking for some help with something I'm trying to accomplish with MS Access. I have data set up in the following manner:

CUSTNBR|TRANSYTD|  RPTDATE
---------------------------
   1   |    7   | 5/28/2010
   1   |    10  |12/31/2010
   1   |    2   | 4/29/2011 
   2   |    8   |12/31/2010
   2   |    6   | 4/29/2011
   3   |    3   | 4/29/2011
   4   |    4   | 5/28/2010
   4   |    6   |12/31/2010
   4   |    2   | 4/29/2011
   5   |    5   | 5/28/2010
   5   |    8   |12/31/2010
   5   |    5   | 4/29/2011
   6   |    6   | 5/28/2010
   6   |    10  |12/31/2010
   6   |    6   | 4/29/2011

---------------------------

What I'm looking to do in MS Access is construct a SQL query that will get the number of transactions for each account between 5/28/2010 and 4/29/2011.

This would involve subtracting the TRANSYTD figure for 12/31/2010 from the TRANSYTD figure for 5/28/2010 for each customer number, and then adding that figure to the the TRANSYTD figure for 4/29/2011 to that for each account. The output, based on the data above, should look something like this:

CUSTNBR|TRANACTIONS|
--------------------
   1   |      5    |
   2   |     14    |
   3   |      3    |
   4   |      4    |
   5   |      8    |
   6   |     10    |
--------------------

I've tried several variations of UNION, and SUM- and, also trying them after separating the data into tables, based on RPTDATE, none of which give me the desired results.

Can anyone make any suggestions, please? Thanks!

Okay, so this was a fun one. I had to do this using a fake table, plus I used Access2003 (hope you don't mind -- syntax should be the same).

First, create these queries:
qryDistinctCustNbr:

SELECT DISTINCT dbo_TransStuff.CUSTNBR
FROM dbo_TransStuff;

qryFor1231:

SELECT dbo_TransStuff.CUSTNBR, dbo_TransStuff.TRANSYTD, dbo_TransStuff.RPTDATE
FROM dbo_TransStuff
WHERE dbo_TransStuff.RPTDATE=#12/31/2010#;

qryFor0528:

SELECT dbo_TransStuff.CUSTNBR, dbo_TransStuff.TRANSYTD, dbo_TransStuff.RPTDATE
FROM dbo_TransStuff
WHERE dbo_TransStuff.RPTDATE=#5/28/2010#;

qryFor0430:

SELECT dbo_TransStuff.CUSTNBR, dbo_TransStuff.TRANSYTD, dbo_TransStuff.RPTDATE
FROM dbo_TransStuff
WHERE dbo_TransStuff.RPTDATE=#4/30/2011#;

Then create this query
MainQuery:

SELECT 
qryDistinctCustNbr.CUSTNBR, 
qryFor528.TRANSYTD, 
qryFor1231.TRANSYTD, 
qryFor429.TRANSYTD, 
IIf(IsNull([qryFor1231]![TRANSYTD]),0,[qryFor1231]![TRANSYTD]) 
- IIf(IsNull([qryFor528]![TRANSYTD]),0,[qryFor528]![TRANSYTD]) 
+ IIf(IsNull([qryFor429]![TRANSYTD]),0,[qryFor429]![TRANSYTD]) 
AS Field1
FROM 
((qryDistinctCustNbr LEFT JOIN qryFor528 ON qryDistinctCustNbr.CUSTNBR = qryFor528.CUSTNBR) LEFT JOIN qryFor1231 ON qryDistinctCustNbr.CUSTNBR = qryFor1231.CUSTNBR) LEFT JOIN qryFor429 ON qryDistinctCustNbr.CUSTNBR = qryFor429.CUSTNBR;

Of course, you'll have to change all the field/table names to fit what you're really doing, but this seemed to work and give the result needed.

Good luck!

SELECT TransInfo.CustNo, Sum(IIf([RPTDate]=" 5/28/2010",[TransYTD]*-1,[TransYTD])) AS CombinedTrans FROM TransInfo GROUP BY TransInfo.CustNo;

Thank you for the responses, guys! I tried them both, but ended up going with Chris' simpler solution. Regardless, thanks for both of your time!
