I have been trying to get this to work for a while now. I have 3 tables. First table has the Sales for customers which include the CustomerID, DateOfSales (Which always has the first of the month). The second table has the CustomerName, CustomerID. The third table has which customers buy what product lines. They are stored by CustomerID, ProductID.
I want to get a list (from one SQL hopefully) that has ALL the customers that are listed as buying a certain ProductID AND the maxDate from the Sales. I can get all of them IF there are sales for that customer. How the heck do I get ALL customers that buy the certain ProductID AND the maxDate from Sales or NULL if there is no sales found?
maxDate |CustomerID |CustomerID
SELECT WhoBuysWhat.CustomerID, CustomerList.CustomerName,
Max(SalesList.MonthYear) AS MaxOfMonthYear FROM (CustomerList INNER
JOIN SalesList ON CustomerList.CustomerID = SalesList.CustomerID) INNER
JOIN WhoBuysWhat ON CustomerList.CustomerID = WhoBuysWhat.CustomerID
WHERE (((SalesList.ProductID)=17)) GROUP BY WhoBuysWhat.CustomerID,
SELECT cl.CustomerID, cl.CustomerName, Max(sl.MonthYear) AS MaxOfMonthYear FROM (CustomerList as cl LEFT JOIN (SELECT sl.* FROM SalesList sl WHERE sl.ProductID = 17 ) as sl ON cl.CustomerID = sl.CustomerID ) LEFT JOIN WhoBuysWhat wbw ON cl.CustomerID = wbw.CustomerID GROUP BY cl.CustomerID, cl.CustomerName;
