        MS Access 2016

        Hello! I have an access table that records dates of a transaction and I’m trying to create a single query that will show the most recent date of a specific transaction. I cannot give the exact details of what my data – so will try to explain what I’m trying to doing with other examples:).

        Say I have a table that lists dogs and a record of the date they had a bath. I need to maintain the historical record of the dates they had a bath. So I have Spike, Jaws, Princess, Thumper, and Buster. Each of them have multiple date entries of each time they’ve had a bath. I also have Tiger and Piglet, but they don’t get their baths with us anymore. So- they’re not active customers. I cannot delete their historical bath dates.

        Is it possible to create a query that my boss can pull that will show each current customer/dog and the most recent date that they had a bath? And then – is it possible, in that same query to calculate what date they would be due for a bath again…say 30days from the date of their most current bath date?


        Thank you in advance for any help! And thank you for playing along in my make believe scenario!
