I was wondering if anyone has some advise as to how i should go about a problem i have. The following code finds a tutor with free space as long as their preference does not equal a certain course; the problem with this is that my tblPreference is structured in such a way that a tutor may have multiple entries
eg TU_CODE TU_COURSE TU_PREF
77 TR099 Y
77 TR011 N
At the moment the sql statement finds the first entry the tutor has in tblPreference and if its not equal to 'course' thats fine; the problem is that its not checking all subsequent entries the tutor has in tblPreference; so they might infact have stated that they do not want that course but my sql syntax is not picking that up. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can go about solving this please?
Try Breaking the Query down more. Sometime you want to run a couple of query getting the data 80%-90% right make the 3rd , 4th the stuff you want to see.
ill even written Query first then write the SQL to feel off that query
Just one thing to [b]rem[\b] never have a Query pointing to a foum then get SQL to read that Query MS dose not like that alll .

See clear as mud
the aim is store once, not store multiple times
