    I have an Access database with hundreds of records. All of these records
    have a "Status", a "Priority" and an "As-of Date". I am trying to create a
    bar chart that will show me the "Status" and "Priority" by month. I don't
    need the specific "As-of Date"--not January 6, 2006--just January 2006.
    Essentially, I just want to show that in January of 2006, I had five priority
    one's, ten priority two's, and six priority three's. Thanks for any help.

    In the report that feed the Bar chart, add a calculated field:
    AsOfMonth:Month([As-of Date])
    You can "Group By" on that field as needed, etc.
    The Month() function will display the Month Number only.
    If your report spans a year and you want Dec 2005 to sort before Jan 2006,
    you can add another calculated field AsOfYear:Year(As-of Date])
    Sort first on Year then on Month for the report, and you don't have to show
    the Year field in the output.

    Thank you for the quick reply. But, how do I add a calculated field? I'm
    sorry, I'm just not very experienced with Access.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
