Monthly Cumulative Reports

1 New Member
Hello from Nova Scotia Canada.

Hi there, Im struggling a bit here and I thought I might seek out some advice. Nice to meet you all.

My situation is that im running a database that records events related to the manufacturing process in our company. Everytime a specific event is logged, there is a date mm/dd/yyyy associated with that. What I'm trying to do is do a monthly report that counts the number of individual events within a given month, groups them together (ie: February), then shows a bar chart showing the number of occurances per month.

I will use a date peramater so they decide how many months are to show up on the report. The trouble is that I dont know how to group the dates into months, then report monthly.

Any advice?

Hi Steve

To get the Month number of a date you can use the Month() Function.


To get the Month name use MonthName()

You can then count the result. Your query would be something like...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT EventName, MonthName([DateField]), Count([DateField) As NumEvents
  2. FROM TableName
  3. GROUP BY EventName, MonthName([DateField]);

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
