    Arrow employees who has been working for more than 10 years?


    I have created a database for employees which includes the "Name", and the "Hired date" and I want to make a query to show the names of the employees who has been working for more than 10 years for the company and also to show how long they have been working for the company.

    (I only use the graphical design view to make and edit queries and i have a very basic knowledge on access! )


    I need your help to understand how to make this query. thanks in advance!

    Try this. Assuming the employee hire date is a field called HireDate included in your query, in the Criteria field of that column of the query design display (beneath the Show check box) enter:

    <=[Check Date]

    In the top row of an empty column of the query design display, enter:

    =(Now()-[EmployeeTable]![HireDate])/365

    When you execute the query, it will prompt you for Check Date; enter a date ten years in the past, and the query will return those employees whose hire date is on or before that date (in other words, been employed ten or more years) and their length of employment as a real number (such as 10.255 for about ten years and three months).

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
