Merge duplicate records in Access however sum total

Hello,

I think I have a fairly simple query however have been struggling for a while so hope you can help. I have a query which displays 4 columns. In some instances the columns are exactly the same except for one column ie. the cost. The query may return as follows;

Name | CC | Nom | Cost
A | 100 | 008 | 38475.89
A | 100 | 008 | 22.56

What I would like is the query to return;

Name | CC | Nom | Cost
A | 100 | 008 | 38498.45

I thought the code posted below would work however has yet to merge any of the data.

Any help would be great. Thanks!
SELECT Query8.Type, Query8.dCostCode, Query8.dNominalCode, SUM([Query8.F7]) AS Budget
FROM Query8 LEFT JOIN SummaryTotal ON (Query8.dNominalCode = SummaryTotal.dNominalCode) AND (Query8.dCostCode = SummaryTotal.dCostCode)
GROUP BY Query8.Type, Query8.dCostCode, Query8.dNominalCode, Query8.F7;

You were very close:

SELECT Query8.Type, Query8.dCostCode, Query8.dNominalCode, SUM([Query8.F7]) AS Budget
FROM Query8 LEFT JOIN SummaryTotal ON (Query8.dNominalCode = SummaryTotal.dNominalCode) AND (Query8.dCostCode = SummaryTotal.dCostCode)
GROUP BY Query8.Type, Query8.dCostCode, Query8.dNominalCode

Not sure where SummaryTotal comes in but for the data above, this would give you the result you need.
SELECT Query8.Type, Query8.dCostCode, Query8.dNominalCode, SUM([Query8.F7]) AS Budget
FROM Query8 
GROUP BY Query8.Type, Query8.dCostCode, Query8.dNominalCode;
