Cumulative Monthly Returns

OBJECTIVE
I'd like to be able to query the cumulative monthly returns of a given
stock based on the daily returns. I need to do this for 1000
securities over 5 years (60 months)

TABLES
Returns ~ with the following fields:
1. ID
2. Ticker
3. From (prior date end)
4. To (current date end)
5. Return

Trade Days ~ with the following fields:
1. ID
2. From (prior date end)
3. To (current date end)
4. Month (number for month)
5. Year (number for year)

PROBLEM
I need to calculate the returns on a monthly basis. Therefore I need
the following calculation(s):
1. first day of the = returns for that day
2. second day = (1+prior day)*(1+current day return)-1
3. get end of month value

I'm a VB rookie, and have not been able to recreate basic excel
calculations for the life of me.

Thanks so much for your help!

I am pulling my hair out trying to solve this one (presumably because I am not particularly trained or skilled at access!) I have a query which summarises the variances that each of my sales guys have created from their targets. This summarises by week, and works fine. I then re-use this into a cross-tab which presents a nice orderly table. My boss would like to see these variances accumulate, so that we could make a nice graph in...

Are there any ways to speed up a Cumulative sum in a query or perhaps another faster way to have a cumulative sum column (call a vba function?). For example, I want to sum up all values under 'Amount', and also have a field call 'Cumulative' and have the sum grow with each record. Using "MyTable", the query results are...

Hi I a trying to create a chart that reflects monthly cumulative totals from a query. The query fields show sales opportunities forecasted invoice date (OppForInvDate), Opportunity Description and Estimated Value of the opportunity (OppEstVal). All I want is to chart, cumulatively for each month, the totals for the month? Why is it so difficult, or is just me? Mike

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
