Anyone good with access 2003? Im stuck at one aspect of a a query I'm trying to make. Lets say you have a field labeld Cost and another labeled Paid. If Cost is $5 and Paid is $5 it should not display in my query, but if Cost is $10 and Paid is $5 I would like this to show when I go to data view instead of design view. Can anyone help? I can't seem to make it work with a simple cost>paid statment. I'm designing this in the design view.

Are the Cost & Paid fields numeric? Wont work well if they are strings with symbols.

Design view looks like a table.
Underneath the field names you can write expressions on the same line (AND) or on different lines (OR).
Otherwise, do it in a formula writing window where you can select tables, fields and operators. Basically what you want to write would come looking something like NOT ([table.COST]<[table.PAID])
Use Access Help for details about formulas or expressions in a query. I can't recall how to get there, but I think double click on the criteria rows will get you there. If not, well, there's always the SQL window to write it in the hard way.
