MS Access Comparing 3 Values


E

Hello all,

I need to compare 3 values in MS Access and when they are all the same it should say true, if even 1 is incorrect it should say false.

Can anyone help me with a formula?

Below is an example.

Value 1 | Value 2 | Value 3

2 | 2 | 1 False
3 | 3 | 3 True
| | 1 False
2 | | 2 False

Thanks in Advance,

Edward

Hey John,

Tried them both and I am still getting -1 and 0 as a result. Do I have to make another column to turn these values into true and false?

-1 IS True, and 0 IS false. That's how they're stored in Access.

If you want the words "True" and "False" you can use

IIF(Value1 = Value2 AND Value2 = Value3, "True", "False")

The equality test just needs to compare either of the possible pairings. If
Value1 = Value2 and Value2 = Value3, then it is an absolute certainty that
Value1 = Value3; two things that are both equal to a third thing are equal to
each other.
