This seminar has several goals. You will:

1. Learn about Action queries and when to use them
2. Discover how to launch queries from VBA code
3. Create Aliases for your field and table names
4. Learn the different types of Table Joins
5. Construct a Union query
6. Work with a Crosstab query
7. Perform calculations in your SQL statements
8. Explore the different Aggregate query functions
9. Utilize string, math, time/date, and other query functions

SQL Seminar Comment from James Gray @ 12/8/2016

I have owned this seminar for quite a while now and am using it to develop SQL to put into existing forms and reports to replace formal queries as the data source.  In one instance I have a crosstabe query that is the data source for one of my reports.  The query works just fine for the report but when I copy the SQL and place it into the report data source I get an error: "Cannot use the crosstab of a non-fixed column as a subquery".  The report uses only one query as its datasource and that query is not dependent upon any other query.  If I return to using the query itself as the datasource, everything returns to normal and the report runs fine.  Any ideas?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

So you aren't setting the SQL in vba you are copy and pasting it into the Record Source of the object? I'm not sure why this would be better that using a Query Object.

Access SQL Seminar Part 2 Comment from Jyotsana J @ 12/31/2013
Hi Richard
I am having trouble working SQl code after update where we select single category such as keyboard to shows just keyboard records. I have seen the videos so many times but SQL is not working. Here is my code
Private Sub CategoryCombo_AfterUpdate()

ProductList.RowSource = "SELECT ProductID, ProductCode, ProductName, " & _
    "UnitPrice, Category, LastUpdated, NewPrice FROM ProductVendorNewPricingQ " & _
    "WHERE Category =  " & CategoryCombo & "  " & _
    "ORDER BY ProductName;"

End Sub

Please tell me where i am wrong.

SQL 2 Seminar Database
I forgot to mention that some of us (me) still working with Access XP or other older versions. Is it possible to convert to the older versions from AC 2010?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes, you can backward-convert an Access 2010 database (under File > Save & Publish). If you're using features that are unique to 2010, you will lose them, however. A simple database is no problem.

Dear Richard,
The Access Seminar SQL 2 Database is not yet available, can you tell when it will be?

With kind regards
eddy peanut

Rick: I'm embarrassed to say I can't find it! I don't think that I was planning on saving it because there isn't much to it... but I'll keep looking.

Access SQL Seminar Part 2 Comment from Mubeezi Micah @ 5/28/2011
Dear Richard,

Once again you made me look a fool. While watching Video 10 time index 13.50, i couldn't believe my eyes. How i wish i had watched this single line of code 3 months ago? It looks so simple but never did it ever cross my brain that it is possible. Have you demonstrated using the RecordSource property like this before? If you ever did, then i missed that class.



Reply from Richard Rost:

I know I've showed you how to create a query and then use that same query to feed a form and a report, but I don't think I've ever showed you this exact technique before (pulling the RowSource property out of a listbox to use it as the RecordSource of a report). Pretty cool, eh? That's why you want to learn SQL... once you know it, you'll realize that it sits under almost EVERYTHING in your database.

What I really like is that it's SO much easier to quickly edit, append, or delete records once you know the SQL action queries. You can do with one line of code (DoCmd.RunSQL) the same thing that takes 10 to 15 lines of code to do with a recordset... and I love recordsets!

Access SQL Seminar Part 2 Comment from David Spens @ 5/24/2011
Thank you so much Richard - it worked a treat, although because some of the intermediate fields were NULL I had to use the + sign in places, experimenting with the arrangement of +'s and &'s.  This seems to work fine:
Address: [Address1] & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & [Address2]+Chr(13)+Chr(10) & [Address3]+Chr(13)+Chr(10) & [Town]+Chr(13)+Chr(10) & [County]+" " & [PostCode]
It has saved me a lot of headache with nested IIf's!
Many thanks,

Reply from Richard Rost:

Like that trick, huh? :)

Another Excellent Seminar.

What a great find with the & and +, that will save extra coding :)

[Loved the Superman 3 comment, check out a film called Office Space for other references about that.]

Reply from Richard Rost:


I love Office Space. One of my favorite movies. My wife and I were calling each other "no talent ass clowns" for weeks after seeing that the first time.
