SQL to find minimum value for each Distinct record

Hello all,

I have a table looks like this in Access

Product Sale Date
A date
A date
A date
B date
B date
C date
C date
C date

I would like to write a query to find the minimum date (i.e. the date
of the first sale) for each product

Thus, the expected output would be

Product Sale Date
A min date
B min date
C min date

How can i do this using SQL in Access??

any help is greatly appreciated!

1. Create a query using this table.

2.In query design, depress the Total button on the toolbar (upper sigma
icon.) Access adds a Total row to the grid.

3. Drag the Product field into the grid.
Accept Group By in the Total row under this field.

4. Drag the [Sale Date] field into the grid.
In the Total row, choose Min.
