You will need two queries
First query a Group By to count the number of times the IP address is recorded for the month.
Something like this
SELECT tbl_test_data.period, tbl_test_data.isp_add, Count(tbl_test_data.site) AS isp_count
GROUP BY tbl_test_data.period, tbl_test_data.isp_add
period is your date e.g. 12/09 do not use Date as a field name as it is a reserved word. isp_add is your ipaddress e.g. 188.8.131.52 isp_count is the count for the number of times that your ipaddress occurs during the month.
The Having clause will only show where the number of times is > 2
Second Query - To append the site names we now need to join the first query to your table with the following
INSERT INTO tbl_sites ( period, isp_add, site )
SELECT tbl_test_data.period, tbl_test_data.isp_add, tbl_test_data.site
FROM tbl_test_data INNER JOIN qry_totals ON (tbl_test_data.isp_add = qry_totals.isp_add) AND (tbl_test_data.period = qry_totals.period);
I have attached a sample database for you. note, I have period as text you will need to change it to the correct format.
Bro I dont know how to thank u .. you are the greatest I mean to take time off and help me out.. you are a GEM and thanks for attaching that database too ur the KING of access as far as I am concerned!!!
as helpful as PS was - - and it was very helpful - - nonetheless you should at least be aware that what you ask is a database no no. One does not write data from one table to another ( at least in terms of database best practices ...)
why? .... lets say the data changes in your first starting table......and what was a duplicate before is no longer a duplicate...then you have to delete your data from the second table....
in your case this may never ever be the case - since it looks like an autostamp log file of some sort... but readers should know the pitfall of your request....
the db-correct reply is simply to do a date range bound duplicates query of the first table any time you need to see duplicates within the month.....
