    SQL: Union Query to Combine 3 Queries

    I have three queries that make a training list based on a person's role, team, and ad-hoc exceptions. The personnelID field is filtered by a listbox on a form. Each of these work great on their own (nice!). Now I want to combine them. I made the below union query that works... however when it is run, I am prompted to enter the personnelID again. This prompt only happens once. Do I need to incorporate a qhere statement somewhere, even though each of the individual queries have them already?



    Thanks!

    Code:
    SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID
    FROM qryPersonnelTrainingByRole
    UNION ALL
    SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID
    FROM qryPersonnelTrainingByTeam
    UNION ALL SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID
    FROM qryPersonnelTrainingByAdHocPersonnel;
    The where statement of potential use:
    Code:
    WHERE (((tblPersonnel.PersonnelID)=[Forms]![frmMain]![lbxPersonnel]));

    If the 3 queries have parameter that references the form control, the UNION should not prompt for input if the form is open.

    I suggest you create a field in the UNION that identifies the source dataset.

    SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID, "ByRole" AS Category FROM ...
    ... "ByTeam" ...
    ... "ByAdHoc" ...

    Thanks June.

    I like the suggestion to show the category and changed the SQL accordingly, but am still getting a prompt for Personnel ID. I also think it's strange that it is asking specifically for the key versus the listbox value. What do you think is causing this?

    See the new code below:
    Code:
    SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID, "ByRole" AS Category FROM qryPersonnelTrainingByRole
     Union all
     SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID, "ByTeam" AS Category FROM qryPersonnelTrainingByTeam
     union all
     SELECT First_Name, Last_Name, TrainingTitle, PersonnelID, "ByAdHoc" AS Category FROM qryPersonnelTrainingByAdHocPersonnel;

    It is not finding PersonnelID field so it prompts for input.

    Post queries for analysis or provide db. Follow instructions at bottom of my post.

    ORDER BY tblTrainingList.TrainingTitle;
    Teams Query:
    Code:

    I don't see PersonnelID field selected in the Roles query.
