Need Help With Design of a Query (for Report)

    I am not sure but I think somehow this can be done in a query. Please help
    point me in the right direction if you can. Here is my scenario:

    I have a Inventory Control database I have been designing. I track trucking
    manifests and supplier tickets in one series of tables, and purchase orders
    from customers in another series of tables. Both sets use a main table and
    a line item table. There is one thing that I need to be able to do
    automatically. As we fulfill the purchase order (orders are completed by
    factory), I want a query or a report to pull the first matching completed
    tickets and automatically assign them to the matching part in the purchase
    order. Example:

    Trucking Manifest has bundle with ticket # 999555 for part RM-1001 (4000lbs)
    received at warehouse. This is recorded in database.

    Purchase Order is received with request for 4000lbs of RM-1001. This is
    recorded in database.

    Factory finishes work on part RM-1001. Ticket #999555 is tagged as finished
    and recorded in database.

    I want the system to pull up the first likely tickets to fulfill the
    Purchase Order. In some cases it will require multiple tickets to fulfill
    the request for the weight in the PO. (Customer requests 12000Lbs, so 3
    tickets will need to be assigned to the order to fulfill weight
    requirement).

    So based on this explanation how would I create the query? There is really
    nothing linking the two tables (one for PurchaseOrderLineItems, and one for
    TicketLineItems), other then part number. This makes it hard to do what I
    want it to do. Let me know if you can help me figure this out.

    Thanks,

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
