Update one table from another
I am trying to update one table that has one record for each employee(table
1) with available vacation time. The other table records every time off
request(table 2) and how much time they want off. I have the update query
and it works fine. The problem is that everytime it is ran every requested
time off amount(from table2) is subtracted from the available time(table1)
again and again. I want the records for requested time(table2) to update the
employee available time off(table1) only once, but keep the records on the
table as that is the basis for a report.

V...Sql to find record in a hierarchical chain
Hi, lets say I have a table with 2 fields:
Field 1 - ref
Field 2 - parentRef
Now in the structure there could be numerous chains until you get to
the top of the hieratchy (where the ref field = parentRef field).
so in this 444 is top of the chain (there will be many other records
as well that are nothing to with 444 and are part of their own
hierarchy). So how do I easily relate 111 to 444. Ie how do i find
the ultimate top parent for a given 'ref' field.
