Access Group By Clause

Group By SQL clause is a query command used to combine data based on the value(s) in the field(s) of a table(s).  The Group By clause is most often used in combination with one or more aggregate functions.

Microsoft Access is a fully capable database and it's primary limitations is the number of concurrent users it will support. Generally, we recommend a limit of 10 to 15 users.

Did you know you don't need to move to SQL/Server to run and manage your Access database on the net. There are many alternative solutions. Among them are Amazon's AWS cloud services and various hosting services in nearly every state.

The basic syntax of the Group By statement is:

Group By TableName.Field1, TableName.Field2

The Access group by clause comes after the where clause of a query and before the optional having clause in the query:

Select TableName.FieldName1, Count(TableName.Field2),Avg(TableName.Field3) From TableName Where your criteria Group By TableName.FieldName1 Having some criteria.

Note: The ending semicolon is a required component of all SQL statements.

Now see the Access group by clause with real column and table names:

Select M_Employees.Emp_Name, Sum(iif(Daily_Absence=true,1,0)), Avg(Daily_Hours) From M_Employees Where M_Employees.Work_Date>=#01/01/05# and M_Employees.Work_Date<=#03/31/05# Group By M_Employees.Emp_Name Having Sum(iif(Daily_Absence=true,1,0))>3;

The above query will select distinct employee names whose daily absences total more than 3 during the 1st quarter of 2005 and will display the average of the hours worked per day during the same time period grouped by emp_name.
