Preserve grouping of data when appending as new

Hello,

 

is there any way how I can preserve the grouping that I have when appending queries as new - it is not always I wish to just append, quite often I wish to append as new.

 

Any help appreciated.

Hi @adegrno ,

I could not understand your desired result, if you want to append a new query, you could use the function in query editor:

It will create a new append query and will not affert other queries.

Re: Preserve grouping of data when appending as new

thx for reply, let me try to rephrase the issue, maybe it was a bit unclear.

 

Lets say I have query 1 - in this query I have made a lot of groupings on account level. (it is a financial report)

 

Then I have a second query that I want to append as new. This will then be called eg. Append 1

 

In Append 1 I have the combined data. But the grouping I had in query 1 seems to have dissappeared and has to be recreated. This is a lot of work. Is there a way I can preserve the grouping on accounts when appending another query to it with the as new functionality.

 

Hope this explains it better.
