You can sum a field in a table like this:

select sum(Afield) as FieldSum from ATable where ATable.AnotherField = 42

You can so this using a TChart (in the additional tab).

Add one of these to a form, create an appropriate series and use code somethting like this to fill it in:

(This is a snip from my Mortgage Planning app where it creates a chart of interest and principal payments over time)

  for I := 0 to CurrentScenario.Payments.Count - 1 do
    begin
      TotalScenarioInterest := TotalScenarioInterest + CurrentScenario.payments[i].InterestPortion;

      ScenarioPrincipalSeries.AddXY(CurrentScenario.Payments[i].PaymentDate,
                                    CurrentScenario.Payments[i].PrincipalRemaining, '', clTeeColor);
      ScenarioInterestSeries.AddXY(CurrentScenario.Payments[i].PaymentDate,
                                   TotalScenarioInterest, '', clTeeColor);
    end;

Cheers,

Raymond.
