How to query a query...

I'm working on converting an Access DB that I created into an ASP.NET application (and attempting to learn ASP at the same time...).  One of my queries was very complex and required running a different query first, and then working off of that one.  Any suggestions on the best way to do this in ASP?  

The following is a sample of code I'm using so you can see the type of data-binding I'm using. Thanks for the help!
myConnection = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; " +"Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("/EquipmentCheckout.mdb"))
strSQLQuery = "SELECT ClassID as id, Class as name FROM TClassPeriodList order by Class;"
myCommand = New OleDbCommand(strSQLQuery, myConnection)
myDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
ClassList.DataSource = myDataReader
ClassList.DataValueField = "id"
ClassList.DataTextField = "name"

Sorry 'bout the delayed reply...

Basically, the database tracks equipment checked-out by faculty at a school. I want to be able to show what equipment is available on a certain date. So, I first queried the database to find out what equipment is in use. Then, I compared that with the table that contains all of the equipment, and took everything in that second table that was not found by the query (thus, everything currently not in use). Is there a way I can do this in a single SQL statement (I am somewhat new to all of this, so I could very easily be missing something obvious...)? And if not, is there a way to store the results of the query and then compare it to the query on the equipment table? Thanks!

I had problems getting nested queries to work in Access, but one workaround solution I found was to produce my two seperate datasets and then make a third one.  In your case I would iterate through the "all equipment" dataset and add to the third "results" dataset everything that wasn't found in the first "in use" dataset.  Hope this helps, there's probably a more elegant way of doing things.

It can be done easily. A query can be treated exactly like a table. Just reference it in the SQL query the same way you would reference a table. Give it a shot, and if it doesn't work, post the SQL you are using, and what the problem is.

Petros -- PETROS GAVRIELIDES wrote: > I have a result set in a query. > Is it possible to query this query? > > (no specific SQL dialect, can it be done generically?) There is a generic answer to your question: Yes, there is a construct called a sub-query that allows you, in 1 SQL statement, to query from a query. But, generically speaking, not all DB engines support this construct. For instance, Firebird only added it just over a y...

Having trouble querying a query?
I'm trying to transition my reports from Access 2000 into Infomaker 7.0 but I'm having trouble combining two queries together. In Access you had to option of pulling tables or queries as your data, I don't see this option in Infomaker, am I missing something. Thanks from a newbie... IM doesn't have this feature, since it adheres to general Ansi SQL standards. If you show me the Access query, maybe I can give you a workaround.

Query and Sub-Queries
I have a SELECT statement that has two sub queries in it. The 'where' clause in the main query filters a TRADE_DATE field, for example: ...... where TRADE_DT >= '2003/01/01' and TRADE_DT <= '2003/01/31'. Since I only have one date field(TRADE_DATE), I want the sub-query to query where TRADE_DT <= '2003/01/31'. But its not working. I have to hard code the '2003/01/31'. Now I know I can make a dynamic view in VB, but an ideas of how I can do it in SQL? Here's my statement: select T.BROKER_SEQ_NO,B.BROKER_NAME,B.B...
