Would be nicer in SQL Server ... but I think this will work in Access.

Select M.Booked, Sum(M.Moved) as Qty, 
  (Select Sum(Booked) From Moves Where Moves.Booked <= M.Booked) as Res
From Moves as M 
Group by M.booked
order by M.Booked

Open in new window

Yeah that's the one Daniel. Thank-you very much. Cant believe I was being so daft, I was using count (becase the moved was only going up or down by one each time) and always being slightly out, which made me question everything!!
