I am trying to create a report on a db using SQL server and the code below is where i'm at. What i would like to add is another Alias field which would contain a number range within my group of documents. This # range exist in the "Beg Bates" and "End Bates" fields within the tblUserData.


SELECT dbo.tblDocuments.Volume,  COUNT(*) AS num_vols
, dbo.tblUserData.Custodian, COUNT(*) AS num_cust
, dbo.tblDocuments.[Date Added]
FROM dbo.tblDocuments INNER JOIN dbo.tblUserData ON dbo.tblDocuments.DocGUID = dbo.tblUserData.MasterGUID
GROUP BY dbo.tblDocuments.Volume
, dbo.tblUserData.Custodian
, dbo.tblDocuments.[Date Added]

Something like this?
SELECT 	dbo.tblDocuments.Volume,  
	COUNT(*) AS num_vols
	, dbo.tblUserData.Custodian, 
	COUNT(*) AS num_cust
	, dbo.tblDocuments.[Date Added]
	,MAX(tblUserData.[Beg Bates])
	,MAX(tblUserData.[End Bates])
 
FROM dbo.tblDocuments 
INNER JOIN dbo.tblUserData ON dbo.tblDocuments.DocGUID = dbo.tblUserData.MasterGUID
 
GROUP BY dbo.tblDocuments.Volume
 
, dbo.tblUserData.Custodian
, dbo.tblDocuments.[Date Added]

Your request is a little ambiguous.  What do you mean by "which would contain a number range within my group of documents"?
SQL_1 shows how to add the columns to the initial query as simply additional columns.
SQL_2 shows how to combine the 2 columns into a single (Nmbr_Range) column .
 
I am still a little vague as to what you expect to actually get as your results.
 
Could you provide some sample expected output?

SQL_1:
 
SELECT D.Volume,  
       COUNT(*) AS num_vols, 
       U.Custodian, 
       COUNT(*) AS num_cust, 
       U.[Date Added]
       U.[End Bates]
FROM  dbo.tblDocuments D
INNER JOIN dbo.tblUserData U
   ON D.DocGUID = U.MasterGUID
GROUP BY D.Volume, 
         U.Custodian, 
         D.[Date Added],
         U.[Beg Bates],
         U.[End Bates];
 
 
 
SQL_2:
 
SELECT D.Volume,  
       COUNT(*) AS num_vols, 
       U.Custodian, 
       COUNT(*) AS num_cust, 
       D.[Date Added],
       'Range: [' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(6), [Beg Bates]) + '] - [' +
        CONVERT(VARCHAR(6), [End Bates]) + ']' AS Nmbr_Range
FROM  dbo.tblDocuments D
INNER JOIN dbo.tblUserData U
   ON D.DocGUID = U.MasterGUID
GROUP BY D.Volume, 
         U.Custodian, 
         D.[Date Added],
         'Range: [' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(6), [Beg Bates]) + '] - [' +
        CONVERT(VARCHAR(6), [End Bates]) + ']' ;
