I am test driving Mathematica and I am stuck on trying to figure how to plot a histogram where the data is grouped by weekly or monthly dates.

Using:
ClosedPos1 = {#[[1, 1]], #[[2]]} & /@ SQLExecute[conn, "
   SELECT pDate, NumClosePos FROM stats__s1_c_long_tft3
   WHERE NumClosePos > 1
   "]

I have extraced from MySQL Database a list of dates, and a value. The list spans 2+ years and consist of daily dates.

I want to plot a histogram showing me the total  number of values which exist for each month. I then want to plot the same but using the total count for each week.

Here is a sample of the data:

{{{2009, 8, 19}, 2}, {{2009, 8, 20}, 4}, {{2009, 8, 21},
  4}, {{2009, 8, 24}, 3}, {{2009, 9, 3}, 4}, {{2009, 9, 8},
  2}, {{2009, 9, 9}, 5}, {{2009, 9, 10}, 5}, {{2009, 9, 17},
  2}, {{2009, 9, 18}, 2}, {{2009, 9, 21}, 2}, {{2009, 9, 28},
  5}, {{2009, 10, 2}, 2}, {{2009, 10, 12}, 5}, {{2009, 10, 21},
  2}, {{2009, 10, 23}, 3}, {{2009, 10, 28}, 4}, {{2009, 10, 30},
  5}, {{2009, 11, 2}, 5}, {{2009, 11, 5}, 4}, {{2009, 11, 9},
  3}, {{2009, 11, 16}, 6}, {{2009, 11, 18}, 4}, {{2009, 11, 30},
  2}, {{2009, 12, 1}, 13}, {{2009, 12, 2}, 3}, {{2009, 12, 3},
  2}, {{2009, 12, 10}, 3}, {{2009, 12, 14}, 6}, {{2009, 12, 16},
  4}, {{2009, 12, 17}, 2}, {{2009, 12, 18}, 7},
.......,

So, if I was summing weekly data the first plot would span
{2009, 8, 19}, 2}, {{2009, 8, 20}, 4}, {{2009, 8, 21}, 4},
which would be 2+4+4 = 10, and so on

If I was plotting monthly the each bar in the histogram would be the sum of the values for that month.

I would like to use FrameLabel to name the axis.

I have just spent 2 hours googling for some sample code but no luck.

Any help is appreciated!

you want to get any code i.e. sql query so that it will give you values for weekwise/yearwise counts or
code for creating histogram in excel spread sheet.

What you want is matters here. Could you brief here what really you are looking for
