Query/Report for most recent journal entry

13 New Member
Hello all!

I have a rather large database for ongoing projects at my office. There is a form that is used to enter basic information about each project, and this form contains a subform to record journal entries for each project. The system assigns a random autonumber to each project, and the subform uses the same autonumber to associated each journal entry with the correct project.

The subform conatins the following fields: Autonum, Date, and Journal_Entry. Everything has been associating properly, but when I try to create a report to show the most recent journal entry for each project, I have a few problems.

The main problem: the system will show the correct date(the most recent date a journal entry was made) but will show the wrong journal entry. The journals appear to end up in alphabetical order. For some reason, the association between the date and its respective journal entry is lost. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

[edit] using the long date format is [/edit] Certainly one solution and one I use myself for certain history logs in some of the databases we use inhouse; however, from the SQL provdided in #4 I get the impression that Jamaher is trying to relate the information between two or more tables and somewhere in the database there is either a missing relationship between the tables or some other logic error...

Once again... Jamaher having the basic table design and the relationships between the tables would be most helpful. I don't need actual data... just the table names, the field names, and any established relationships between the tables. Without that information I simply will not be able to provide anymore help with this question.

Hi All I have a major problem with an access query and I am near the end of my tether! I have taken over a project with a badly built access database and as resources are not available to start over I have to make do and cobble together a fix. DB is design to record customer reviews . It was built as 1 table with 1 line per review. So as you can imagine you can have several reviews for the same customer over time.

I fully admit, I am begging for some help. I am at the mercy of anyone's generous nature. I wish I had a template to follow for this one. I thank you in advance for anyone's advice. Maybe this is not possible to do in one query? I know I screwed up the Where clause, and probably the placement of the subquery SELECT statements, but since I am doing this out of design view in Access, the SQL with all its glorious and () automatically...

Hi - Thanks for your help with this one. I have a table that records transactions for individual invoices, and I want to pull the most recent transaction based on the entry date.

Here is an example of the transaction table: ID InvoiceNo ...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
