Query, Filtering, Reporting Problem with Text Values

By lnnakamu ·
Hi all,

I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me. I have an Access 2010 db -



Right now, my queries are looking like - Name, Project
Leanne - ProjHappy
Leanne - ProjSad
Aaron - ProjSmiles
Linda - (Null)

Running in the report is easy, it all groups it. However, if I want to filter out those who have done ProjSad, it only filters the project. So it looks like:
Leanne - ProjHappy
Aaron - ProjSmiles
Linda - (Null)

How do I filter out those who have done the project totally? So basically, my end query would look like (filtering out all those who have done ProjSad):
Aaron - ProjSmiles
Linda - (Null)

I know the answer should be right in front of my brain, but I've been staring at this way too long. I've tried grouping - but since it's text it's not working, I've tried pivotcharts but it's not as userfriendly as a report (and there are about 313 projects and 22K participants).

Thank you for your help!!
