Oracle: saving ouput to a table daily

Hello Experts!

I am not what is the best way to design this report.  I will provide you with my intentions and please provide me with some ideas.


I am building a report in Crystal reports that will need to store data (counts) daily.  Example Monday Tuesdsay Wednesday etc.

The counts are being pulled from queries that will capture day within a 24 hr period.  I am using Oracle and Aqua Data studio for the database.  
Here is the issue.  Lets say I run it Monday and the data populates the fields in the report. But when I go on Tuesday to run the report, it will erase the data.  How can I make it run queries and not erase the data as the days go by?  

I was thinking..  Can I store the daily values in a table and then call them from my report?  But then how would I clear the data to reuse the table every week.  I am looking to make this easier than what I am currently using in Excel.  

Any suggestions?
