Hi

What I have:
- a set of monthly returns in a MS Access. I've attached the Access table.

What I would like to do:
- In MS Access,
- create a cumulative graph showing how say a 100 USD would have grown over time by each of the monthly returns.  I've attached how I would do this in excel.

How would one do this completely in Access?

Thanks
Jann

Try this:
One approach, a function to accumulate the index is required, and written inside a module!

tonikgroup,

I took a slightly differnt approach.

I generated and inserted the Index Field values directly in the Return Table itself, by using the code on the form named: frmGenerataData.

Then Plotted the chart directly from the table.

Yes but wasn't the file informative anyway?
;-)

LOL

Here is the real file (I hope!)
