Show Month over Month Declining Sales

P: n/a
I am trying to construct a query that sums sales by salespersons and
only returns a list of salespersons that have a sum of sales lower than
the previous month for whatever date rane is selected.
For example, if the user selects a date range of Sept.1 ,2004 thru Dec.
31, 2004 the query will return only salespersons where October was
worse than September and November was worse than october and December
was worse than November...

Is ths possible?

The basic query is:

SELECT Contacts.UniqueID, Contacts.LastName, Sum(Sales.Amount) AS
SumOfAmount
FROM Contacts LEFT JOIN Sales ON Contacts.UniqueID = Sales.UniqueID
WHERE (((Sales.SaleDate) Between [Enter a Starting Date:] And [Enter an
Ending Date:]))
GROUP BY Contacts.UniqueID, Contacts.LastName;
