Hi folks,

I have one table (table_1) which contains 4 fieds:
1) ID;
3) Product_Name;
2) Date;
4) Price.

I set a DBGrid to shows all my RECORDS related to some month (for example, August), ordering by date. So, it seems like:

==============================
ID----Product_Name---Date-----------Price
01---Product1----------01/08/2004---20.00
02---Product2----------01/08/2004---10.00
03---Product3----------01/08/2004---50.00
04---Product4----------02/08/2004---30.00
05---Product5----------02/08/2004---10.00
06---Product6----------05/08/2004---20.00
07---Product7----------07/08/2004---15.00
(...)
==============================

I need to put in another table(table_2 - 2 fields: Date and Amount)the amount of product´s price for DATE and shows it in another DBGrid. So, this second DBGrid will be something like:

==============================
Date------------Amount
01/08/2004----80.00
02/08/2004----40.00
05/08/2004----20.00
07/08/2004----15.00
(...)
==============================


How can i implement this? I am using ADO components to connect into my MS Access database.

Best regards.

Hi Kretzchmar... How´ve you been friend?

"Noob" means something related to NOVICEs.

Ok... You got it again. Now my first DBGrid seems like:

==============================
Date------------Price
01/08/2004----80.00
02/08/2004----40.00
05/08/2004----20.00
07/08/2004----15.00
(...)
==============================

So, the first QUESTION is done.

The second question in this TOPIC is:

How could i INSERT in a new TABLE the new information that is in my DBGrid (as i mentioned) now and shows it in another DBGrid?

Did you get it? In the first DBGrid i just see the RESULTs from a SELECT instruction. I´d like that these results be POST in another TABLE (table_2) and i´d like to see them in another DBGrid.

Thank you for now, friend.

also this can be done easily

use again a adoquery with a statement  like

insert into yourtable2name (Date,amount) select Date, sum(price) from yourtable1name group by date

use the execsql method for this statement

hope i understand this q correct
