    Hi,

    Can someone please me convert this Access query to an oracle sql query.

    I'm not really sure how this inner and left join works.

    SELECT ADV.Account_Year AS ColCode, ADV.Account_Year AS ColDesc, ADV.Account_Item_ID AS RowCode, IIF(ISNULL(LT.Translation), AI.Account_Item, LT.Translation) AS RowDesc, ADV.Value AS Amount, ER.Exchange_Rate AS DefRate, UER.Exchange_Rate AS UseRate, CYE.Year_End, TIL.Line_No, TIL.Hierarchy_Level, TIL.SubTotal_ID, AI.Negative_Polarity
    FROM (((((Account_Data_Values AS ADV INNER JOIN Account_Items AS AI ON ADV.Account_Item_ID = AI.Account_Item_ID)
    INNER JOIN Company_Year_Ends AS CYE ON (ADV.AMB_No = CYE.AMB_No) AND (ADV.Account_Year = CYE.Account_Year))
    INNER JOIN Template_Item_Link TIL ON TIL.Account_Item_ID = ADV.Account_Item_ID)
    LEFT JOIN EXCHANGE_RATES AS ER ON (CYE.YEAR_END = ER.DATE_REPORTED) AND (CYE.REPORTED_CURRENCY = ER.COUNTRY_CODE))
    LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM User_Exchange_Rates WHERE User_ID = 'SingleUser') UER ON UER.Country_Code = ER.Country_Code AND UER.Date_Reported = ER.Date_Reported)
    LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM Language_Translations WHERE Country_Code = 'UK') LT ON LT.Account_Item_ID = ADV.Account_Item_ID
    WHERE ADV.Account_Year IN (2001, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1994)
    AND ADV.AMB_No = 87200
    AND ADV.Business_Class_ID = 0
    AND TIL.Nat_Template_ID = 622
    ORDER BY ADV.Account_Year DESC, AI.Account_Item, ADV.Account_Item_ID

    Thanks a lot for the help.

    pst

    I though they would get optimized in oracle itself?!

    I'm sorry, but I didnt understand by what you mean by get optimized by oracle. CAn I just run this query as shown above in oracle? I would have thought not.

    A LEFT join is the same as an outer join ( http://technet.oracle.com/docs/produ...03sch.htm#1142 )

    A INNER join is the same as a regular join ( http://technet.oracle.com/docs/produ...si.htm#1023200 )
