SQL Getting values from 3 different tables

P: 84
Ok this is starting to hurt my head :)

I have a Invoice table that has Invoice_Id , Customer_Id and Product_Code

Invoice_Id is the primary key
Customer_Id is a foreign key
Product_Code is a foreign key

so im making a data report and i can get it to work with connecting an retrieving data from the invoice and customer table but when i try and get data from the product table it fails

this is what i have atm

InvoiceSQL = "SELECT * From Invoice INNER JOIN Customer ON Customer.Customer_Id = Invoice.Customer_Id WHERE Invoice.Invoice_ID=" & Txt_InvoiceID.Text & " INNER JOIN Product ON Invoice.Product_Code = Product.Product_Code WHERE Invoice.Product_Code =" & Txt_InvoiceProdCode.Text & ""

can anyone help ;)

btw im using vb6 and MS Access

Sorry, you're too impatient - I'm going to ban you for life... :D

Seriously, I'm going to move this thread to the Access forum, as you'll find much more SQL expertise there.

I believe it would help if you could copy and paste here the actual contents of the string passed to the SQL interpret (in other words, the srting built by the code you showed us).

And also, could you give a more detailed explanation of what "fail" means in this context? For all we know it might have retrieved the wrong data, retrieved nothing, returned an error, blown up the PC...

You can't have 2 different where clauses in the same query like that.

change it to something like this
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT * 
  2. FROM Invoice 
  3. INNER JOIN Customer ON Customer.Customer_Id = Invoice.Customer_Id 
  4. INNER JOIN Product ON Invoice.Product_Code = Product.Product_Code 
  5. WHERE Invoice.Invoice_ID=" & Txt_InvoiceID.Text & " 
  6.        and Invoice.Product_Code =" & Txt_InvoiceProdCode.Text & ""

not from that ??
Are you sill using a dynamic sql string?
Have you tried SELECT @SQLString
and examined the contents to see if the query was constructed correctly?

Can you give us the SQL you are using now? Also, what version of Access are you working with?

You seem to be confusing the purpose of the WHERE clause, judging from your first posted sql statement. The WHERE clause does not provide criteria for the join, it provides criteria for the selection of the data.

You're going to end up with something looking like this:

FROM (Customer INNER JOIN Invoice ON Customer.CustomerID = Invoice.CustomerID) INNER JOIN Product ON Invoice.ProductID = Product.ProductID
WHERE (((Invoice.InvoiceID)=[Form1].[Text1]));
