    I have a database with stockholder information. It has a stock certificate
    table that carries the orginal # of stocks purchased and I have a transaction
    file that contains selling of the stock. The two files are linked by
    stockholder, certificate number, and stock type

    I am trying to get a subtotal of my ending balance of shares by stock type.
    But I cannot figure out how to have a running total of my original purchased
    stock shares by group stock type. Then another field with a subtotal of
    total changes. If I can get those two numbers then I can sum them to come up
    with an ending share balance by stock type

    any help is appreciated thanks

    Running sums are super easy(bit switch) in Reports, but a pain in queries.

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!
