B. Lab 4B of 7: Completing Queries
C. Lab Overview – Scenario / Summary:
TCOs:
# 6: Given a physical database containing tables and relationships and business requirements,
create the necessary queries.
Scenario/Summary
The lab begins with a simple example of query development using Access; then, evolves to more
complex queries which the student should perform after completing the first exercise. The student
can create a query with the wizard, with query design view, or with SQL statements. The Northwind
database will be used again in this lab.
Upon completing this lab, you should be able to:
• Create a query by following lab instruction.
• Create a query by using either query designer, or query wizard.
• Create a query by using SQL statements.
• Interpret the results of queries
D. Deliverables:
Submit the MS Access Database file that contains the queries created in this lab.
Step Deliverable Points
1 Query #1 – step-by-step
2 Query #2 – Compound Statements
3 Query #3 – Suppliers – step-by-step
4 Query #4 – Suppliers (more advanced)
5 Query #5 – Customers – using SQL Statements
6 Query #6 – Putting it all together

add the FirstName and LastName fields from the Employees table onto the query design grid. Add
the Country field from the Customers table.
In the Country field, Criteria Row, enter “UK” to filter so that only the UK customers will show in the
query results. Also, set the Last Name field, Sort Row to Ascending.
The grid now looks like the following. (Note that the tables have been rearranged to better show the
relationships. You may choose to do this also.)

Here’s a snapshot of how your query should look like in the Design mode.
Note that you need to set the properties to display only the unique values (just like Query1). Also,
notice that even though the CompanyName and Country fields from the Customers table are added to
the grid, the Show check boxes are unchecked. These two fields will not appear in the query results.

Query 5: Find the customer details of all your customers in USA. Use the straight SQL approach (as
opposed to Query wizard).
In this query, we won’t use the Query Designer or Query wizard. This is to demonstrate the SQL
coding approach. SQL (Structured Query Language) is a very powerful language. It has rich set of
features to manipulate data in a number of ways.
Guidelines for SQL Query
-­‐ Select the fields for the query
-­‐ Determine which table or tables contain those fields
-­‐ Determine criteria
-­‐ Determine Sort order
-­‐ Determine grouping
-­‐ Determine any update operations to be performed
Basic SQL Commands
The basic form of SQL expression is quite simple:
SELECT – FROM – WHERE
The statement begins with SELECT clause, which consists of the word SELECT, followed by
a list of those fields you want to include.
Next, there is a FROM clause, which consists of the word FROM, followed by a list of tables
involved in the query
Finally, there is an OPTIONAL WHERE clause, which consists of the word WHERE, followed
by any criteria that the data must satisfy.
The command ends with a Semicolon (;).
Simple criteria: The criterion following the word WHERE is called a Simple Criterion. A Simple
Criterion has the form: Field name, Comparison Operator, then either another field name or a
value
Comparison Operators
= Equal to
< Less than
> Greater than
<= Less than or equal to
>= Greater than or equal to
<> or ! Not equal to.

Step 6: Query #6
In this query, you will demonstrate your understanding of queries.
Using the steps described in step 5, create a new query using SQL View.
Enter the following query:
SELECT Customers.CompanyName, Customers.ContactName, Orders.EmployeeID,
Orders.OrderDate, Orders.ShippedDate, Orders.ShipVia
FROM Employees INNER JOIN (Customers INNER JOIN Orders ON Customers.CustomerID =
Orders.CustomerID) ON Employees.EmployeeID = Orders.EmployeeID;
The results will look like the following, with 830 records
Save the query as “Lab4_Query6”. Save the database file.
