# Average From Multiple Columns

Sep 25, 2007

Hi,

I've got all the columns i require in my query and and i've averaged these, however i need to create a final column which contains the Average of all the other Column Averages.. if you get what i mean!
Put it this way i have columns A, B, C. All the numbers containd within each column have been averaged so now each column contains a single value. ie.

A = 10
B = 20
C = 9

So now i have to create column D which will contain the average of those results above i.e.:

D = 13

I would preferable like to contain this within a single query rather than having to write a vb module and having to add extra tables ect.. but that might be the only way!

So if anyone could tell me the best way of achieving this it would be much appreciated. I've tried a couple things like concatenation:
Average: [Score1]&[Score2]&[Score3]

but this hasnt work.. no surprises really!

Cheers

## Reports :: Take Total Of Columns And Get Average

Jan 13, 2015

I have two columns in my report that at the bottom it gives me the following total, as I put below. I am trying to take the two totals that is gives and get the percentage. 1058/3024 = 35%.

=Sum([TotScrwBlank]) =Sum([TotalAmount]) .349 or 35%
1058 3024

I had did the equation as =Sum([TotScrwBlank])/([TotalAMount]), but this is giving me the answer of 46% which is not correct.

## How Do I Get The Average Speed Answered Based On The Sum Of Two Columns?

Oct 19, 2005

I am trying to get the Total average speed answered (ASA) based on two columns sums. (i.e. sum of calls handled and sum total speed answer). I need to get the total avg speed ans (formula is sum of total speed answer (tsa) divided by sum calls handled). I did an average query for asa but it gives me the avg for the rows(records) of the asa and not of the two columns. I need it for the two columns above. I was trying to change the formula in report design view, but I am not coming out with the correct answer. Are there any suggestions?

## Queries :: Consolidate Multiple Columns Into Two Columns

## Queries :: Get Average Repair Price Of Multiple Part Numbers With Same Root Number

Nov 19, 2013

I need to get an average repair price of multiple part numbers with the same root number i.e.

8 each 8TJ124GGN1
4 each 8TJ124GGM1
7 each 8TJ124GGP1

First I used a query to average the repair price of each subset of numbers, and then queried the query to average all the subset prices together.

If I simply use the AVG function in the first query, I can use it again in the second query to get the average price of all the subset price averages. HOWEVER, if I use the expression:

…to get a more accurate average by throwing out the high and low values, I get a:

“…expression too complicated to be evaluated”

when I try to average the averages in the second query using the AVG function.

I don’t know why the expression is “too complicated” since the first query has already completed its computations before the second query begins its AVG function.

## Queries :: Put Multiple Records In Multiple Columns

Jul 31, 2013

I have three tables. Risk, Names and RiskAndNamesJunction table. I have the junction table because I have many to many relation (meaning many people can be connected to one risk and many risks can be connected to one people).

The problem is that If I make a query to show the people related to the risks, if there are many people for one risk then it will put the people in different rows. Meaning that for risk 2 I will have three rows, because there are three people connected to this rows. See the attached file!

What I would like to do is to have a query which (in case there are more than one risk owners) puts the second name in another column, the third name in another column and so on. So I will have only one row per risks.

The attached file is a dummy file, so there are only maximum three names per risk. In the real file the maximum is five names per risk. So I am talking about no more then five extra columns. (So I am talking about a query which would put the first finding in the first extra column, then the second item in the second and so on till five. It there is no third or fourth or fifht item then the columns remain blank).

Unfortunately I have to do this because our mother company works with excel and they are sticking to this format in excel.

See the attached file ....

## Multiple Columns

Aug 17, 2007

I am trying to build a database for my extensive DVD collection and I want something that shows more than one record per line (I ultimately want something with just an image and title for each record with maybe 4 records per line). This is my first venture into using MS Access, but I've gotten the basics down and have already set up the table & form. The only time I have found something that would display the way I want things is in a report, but it will only display it with multiple columns in print preview mode (which won't work because the titles are going to be hyperlinks and need to be clickable). If anyone has any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated. If I'm not on the right track and this can be done from within a form, then please set me straight. Thanks again in advance.

## Grouping Multiple Columns

Jul 21, 2005

I am trying to display five columns from three seperate tables. I thought the GROUP BY operator would fix this, but I have more than one column to select. The query is fine but I have redundant fields showing. Oh, I'm not worried about the calculation "[employee.salary]*0.1 AS Salary_After_Raise." I just want to concentrate on narrowing the fields down first.

SELECT ID, FirstName, LastName, Salary, [employee.salary]*0.1 AS Salary_After_Raise, City
FROM worksat INNER JOIN store ON worksat.store = store.storenumber, employee
WHERE worksat.store = store.storenumber
GROUP BY city, id, firstname, lastname, salary
ORDER BY city;

## Querying Multiple Columns

Jan 5, 2007

Hi

I'm really hopeful that somebody can help us out here. I'll explain as best I can.

I've got a table, where details of particular online environments are kept. Each online environment is assigned to up to four people. By this, it may be assigned to nobody, or it may be assigned to four seperate people, or anywhere in between.

What i'm trying to create is a query where the user of the database can type in a particular persons name, and it will return all the details of any record where that person is mentioned in ANY of the four colums, which can then be used to generate a report for that particular individual.

However, i'm really unsure of how to do this, and am aware that there is probably a really simple solution to my quandry, that will leave me kicking myself up the rear like theres no tomorrow.

Any advice as to how to proceed would be hugely appreciated, genuinely.

Thankyou.
Kip;)

## Checking Multiple Columns + Asp

Oct 16, 2006

Question concerning how to check a value against multiple columns in Access with ASP.

Need help converting this to proper ASP and Access syntax

Code:myId = "test"myName = "monkey"SELECT * FROM table1 WHERE (programId1='" & myId & "' OR programId2='" & myId & "') AND (name1='" & myName & "' or name2='" & myName & "')"

is this doable with asp and Access?

If this helps explain it better, the following is how I would call it with PHP & mysql:

Code:\$myId = "test";\$myName = "monkey";SELECT * FROM table1 WHERE (programId1 = \$myId OR programId2 = \$myId) AND (name1=\$myName OR name2=\$myName)

Any help would be appreciated

## Combining Multiple Columns Into One

Sep 4, 2007

I'm trying to make a payment report which prints a separate pay sheet for each employee based on what job they did. I don't want to get into too much detail here, but basically, a name is associated with each action in a setup like this:

Job1......Job2......Job3......Job4......Job5
Joe.......Bob.......Jim.......Fred......Jeff
Joe.......Joe.......Jeff......Jim.......Jeff
Bob.......Bob.......Jeff......Bob.......Jim

and so on and so forth.

I want to have a query that gives one column that looks like this:

Bob
Fred
Jeff
Jim
Joe

I already know how to sort and group by, but how would I write a query that contains one column, then another column when that one ends, then another, et cetera?

(I need to know this, because it would be a lot cleaner to show one report for all 5 jobs than a report for each job separately, and of course, that's how the boss wants it!)

## Queries :: Sum From Multiple Columns

Jul 22, 2013

I have a table of Cabinets. Each cabinet has 20 fields for Hardware (HW1, HW2 etc)and 20 for Hardware Quantity (HW1Qty, HW2Qty etc). Not all fields are populated.

Hardware is entered as an ID number
eg "Hinge" = 620 and "Handle" = 750

So say there are 3 Cabinets in a Job Order

Cab1: [HW1] = 620, [HW1Qty] = 2
Cab2: [HW4] = 620, [HW4Qty] = 4
Cab3: [HW1] =750, [HW1Qty] = 2 AND [HW3]=750, [HW3Qty]=1

Each Job Order (list of cabs) is different.

I need to total all the different hardware items, no matter which column (HW1, HW2 etc) they might be in.

So I would end up with totals like :

620 (Hinges) = 7
750 (Handles) = 1
for each Job Order

## Queries :: Top 5 Per Multiple Columns

Mar 11, 2015

I have a database that I just imported a table and I am trying to get the top 5 by desc order of my member count. The problem is some of the counts are duplicated as 1 but the other columns are not a duplicate. I am attaching an example of the Excel I am importing, but this is just an example. I have multiple product across all states and products and then there is WLP, AGP, MMP under Legacy.

Then I have the top 10 top1dx and the ranking is actually 1 to 10. The layout was pulled asking for the top10 diagnosis or dx1 and then give me all the dx2's that fall under that dx1. So I might have 100 dx2's but only need the top 5 but as I said with the count of 1 on many, if I do my query, it will give me the top 5 and chop off any 1's but then I don't get each ranking 1 through 10. I will post an example also of what I need for the output and just having a difficult time with the right query. Here is the query I used:

Code:
SELECT OP.CM_ID, OP.LEGACY, OP.TOPRANK, OP.MEMBERCOUNT, OP.ADMITQTY, OP.STATE, OP.PRODUCT
FROM OP
WHERE ((([OP].[TOPRANK]) In (SELECT TOP 5 TR.TOPRANK
FROM OP as TR
where OP.TOPRANK = TR.TOPRANK
ORDER BY TR.MEMBERCOUNT DESC)) AND (([IP].[MEMBERCOUNT])>1))
GROUP BY OP.CM_ID, OP.LEGACY, OP.TOPRANK, OP.MEMBERCOUNT, OP.ADMITQTY, OP.STATE, OP.PRODUCT
ORDER BY OP.MEMBERCOUNT DESC;

Even if the top 5 ends up showing only 3 in the mix, that is fine. As long as I have in the end every legacy, product, state, the dx1, dx2, toprank accounted for by memebecnt desc.

## Concatenating Various Values From Multiple Columns

Nov 25, 2005

I am trying to concatenate values from seperate columns. Which is fine, however if there are no values in any of these columns I wish to include a dot (.). I also need to add a dot (.) inbetween values.

So for example

Column1 Column 2 Column 3

B11 Europe

would concatenate as:

B11.Europe.

## Searching Across Multiple Tables With Same Columns....

Dec 2, 2005

Ok,

I have three tables that are named different, but have the same column names, but different data in them. The data in each table is linked by a master table that has a primary key.

What I need is a way to make a form with a box where I can search on a value that could be in any of the three tables and then the associted information from the site will display in the above boxes.

(Site Master Table contains all site information and the primary key)
(The three tables are sales order information. Stage Only table, Install table, and srop ship table)

Any ideas?

## Summing Multiple Columns In The Same Query...

Oct 27, 2005

Hello! I'm new here, and I'm back into Access after a few years of not using it.

What I'm trying to do seems simple, but I can't seem to get the sytax down.

I have 6 columns that have dollar figures in them. I want to get the totals for all 6 columns to show in one field. I'm using the sum([field]) to total the individual columns, but I can't seem to get all of them together in one sum. Is this possible?

Thanks!! :D

## Queries :: Sum Multiple Columns And Group?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a table that looks something like this in structure:

P_date (date)
Location_No (integer)
Invoice_type_A (integer)
Invoice_type_B (integer)
Invoice_type_C (integer)
Invoice_type_D (integer)

I want to create a query which shows the sum of the number of all four invoice types for a specific date regardless of the Location_No. By putting something like "Invoices_total: Invoice_type_A + Invoice_type_B + Invoice_type_C + Invoice_type_D" in the top field I am able to get the query to show me the total number of invoices per date AND location, but I would like the total number of invoices for a given date regardless of location number. How can this be done?

## Reports :: SUM Multiple Columns On A Report?

Aug 5, 2013

I can't seem to find a way to SUM two seperate columns on my report. I've attached an example of what I am talking about. I was able to add the SUM feature to the 'Estimate' column, but it doesn't allow me to add that to the 'Plan' column too. The only options available are Count Records or Count Value.how I can have these both SUM seperately within their columns?

## How To Capture If Multiple Columns Are Not Blank

May 20, 2015

Let's say I have three columns; apples, berries and bananas. I need to capture, either using the GUI or the SQL if any of those are not null, then bring that row back. So the rows that come back from the query are only ones where one of those three columns is not null.

In excel it would be if(or(apples<>"",berries<>"",bananas<>""),X,Y)

## Select Distinct From Multiple Columns In Same Table

Sep 7, 2006

I am trying to write a query that will select distinct values from three columns. The table name is Hoods. The columns are C1, C2, and C3. All three columns contain colors and can have the same values, but I only need to have a particular color selected once. For instance, all three columns contain "Black", but "Black" should only be listed once. The result of the query will be used in a drop down list.

The following works for one column:

SELECT DISTINCT [Hoods].[C1]
FROM Hoods
WHERE C1<>"";

Are there any suggestions?

Thanks

## Dynamically Adding Multiple Columns Question

Nov 12, 2005

I coulnt figure out how to reply to a reply. This is a follow up question to a previous post.

I can now create a new column in my access db through my web form.

Here is the script:
ALTER TABLE FAQ ADD City varchar(30)

this adds a new column called city.
Here is my problem:
Every time a user asks a question, that question will be in the new column created.
I need the newly created columns to have unique names.
I tried creating a form with a text file (to simulate where they type in their question) then post to post.asp.
post.asp holds the script.
I replaced city with ::T1:: (the variable of the text file), but got an error.

Creating columns dynamically is worthless unless there is a way to make the column names unique.

Can anyone shed some light on this problem for me?

Much appreciated

Mike
