RE: [MS_AccessPros] left substring query

 

Right Duane, and they are needing to make some wild decisions as to how they are storing the skill name as we evolve and the skills required change.  It is faster and more accommodating to provide this freedom rather than the extra maintenance of a combo box.  Even if I chose a combo box, I’d designate a leftmost substring but I want them to have the flexibility to determine if they enter “5s” or “5s something subset.”

Liz,
I would define "choose" as selecting from a combo box on a form. However it's up to you and your users how you want to build the interface.

Hello Duane, I’m wanting the users to be able to choose a substring as they have designated for filtering criteria.

Liz,

A couple soap box comments:

- It's always best to enter the column headings if they are known/static. This would be all the unique values of Skill.

- IMO, never use parameter prompts. There is little or no control and it's just unprofessional.

- If you do use the Column Headings, you shouldn't need the parameters but it's still good to use them.

John, guilty as charged.  I am pretty sloppy with not explicitly defining parameters.

Liz-

 

It's always a good idea to explicitly define your parameters, but a Crosstab query actually REQUIRES that you define them.  You need a PARAMETERS statement at the beginning of your SQL.  If you're using the Design grid, choose Parameters under Show/Hide on the Design tab.

Pros, it seems like we ought to be able to prompt the user for a leftmost substring of a field.  So I’m trying this:

 

TRANSFORM Last(CompletionsNogales.CompleteDate) AS LastOfCompleteDate

SELECT EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber, EmployeesNogales.Department, CategoryRequirementsNogales.Category, EmployeesNogales.FirstName, EmployeesNogales.LastName, EmployeesNogales.Shift, EmployeesNogales.Supervisor

FROM ((((EmployeesNogales LEFT JOIN EmployeeRequirementsNogales ON EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber = EmployeeRequirementsNogales.EmployeeNumber) LEFT JOIN CompletionsNogales ON EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber = CompletionsNogales.EmployeeNumber) LEFT JOIN SkillsNogales ON CompletionsNogales.SkillID = SkillsNogales.SkillID) INNER JOIN unionCategoriesOfEmployeesNogales ON EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber = unionCategoriesOfEmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber) INNER JOIN CategoryRequirementsNogales ON unionCategoriesOfEmployeesNogales.CategoryID = CategoryRequirementsNogales.CategoryID

WHERE (((SkillsNogales.ExcludeFromMatrices)=False) AND ((CompletionsNogales.Skill) Like [Enter left substring:] & "*") AND ((SkillsNogales.ExcludeFromMatrices)=False) AND ((EmployeesNogales.Status)<>"Inactive"))

GROUP BY SkillsNogales.ExcludeFromMatrices, EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber, EmployeesNogales.Department, CategoryRequirementsNogales.Category, EmployeesNogales.FirstName, EmployeesNogales.LastName, EmployeesNogales.Shift, EmployeesNogales.Supervisor

ORDER BY EmployeesNogales.Department, EmployeesNogales.FirstName, EmployeesNogales.LastName

PIVOT CompletionsNogales.Skill;

 

And this:

 

TRANSFORM Last(CompletionsNogales.CompleteDate) AS LastOfCompleteDate

SELECT EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber, EmployeesNogales.Department, CategoryRequirementsNogales.Category, EmployeesNogales.FirstName, EmployeesNogales.LastName, EmployeesNogales.Shift, EmployeesNogales.Supervisor

FROM ((((EmployeesNogales LEFT JOIN EmployeeRequirementsNogales ON EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber = EmployeeRequirementsNogales.EmployeeNumber) LEFT JOIN CompletionsNogales ON EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber = CompletionsNogales.EmployeeNumber) LEFT JOIN SkillsNogales ON CompletionsNogales.SkillID = SkillsNogales.SkillID) INNER JOIN unionCategoriesOfEmployeesNogales ON EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber = unionCategoriesOfEmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber) INNER JOIN CategoryRequirementsNogales ON unionCategoriesOfEmployeesNogales.CategoryID = CategoryRequirementsNogales.CategoryID

WHERE (((InStr([CompletionsNogales]![Skill],[Enter leftmost substring]))=1) AND ((SkillsNogales.ExcludeFromMatrices)=False) AND ((EmployeesNogales.Status)<>"Inactive"))

GROUP BY SkillsNogales.ExcludeFromMatrices, EmployeesNogales.EmployeeNumber, EmployeesNogales.Department, CategoryRequirementsNogales.Category, EmployeesNogales.FirstName, EmployeesNogales.LastName, EmployeesNogales.Shift, EmployeesNogales.Supervisor

ORDER BY EmployeesNogales.Department, EmployeesNogales.FirstName, EmployeesNogales.LastName

PIVOT CompletionsNogales.Skill;

 

But it is erroring out.  I could programmatically prompt and set a query def, but I just figured there was an easy sql that I’m missing.
