Two queries -

One showing the Top 25 for 2010
Second showing the details for the identified 25

Query 1:
SELECT TOP 25 Count(gstid), Ggradyr, gdegcip
FROM TableName
GROUP BY Ggradyr, gdegcip
HAVING Ggradyr = "2010":

Query 2:
SELECT Query1.gdecip, gdeglvl, count(gstid)
FROM Query1, TableName
GROUP BY Query1.gdecip, gdeglvl
HAVING Query1.Ggradyr = "2010";

if you can write your aggregate query, ignoring the top 25 part of it, you can the make that a sub query and query


e.g.

SELECT TOP 25 * FROM (..your aggregate query in here.including CountOfDegrees..) AS SubQ ORDER BY CountOfDegrees

deighton, I believe you can do it that way, even in Access, if you go to the SQL view of the query.  I didn't even consider that.  Good thought!
