Simple SQL (why does it take me 2 queries when 1 should suffice?)

See attached.

I want a query on the SalesInvoices table with the following characteristics;

1. Only include data from 2012
2. Use "group by" to produce the following format;

Joe     425
Tom   406


This should be fairly easy.  However, can it be done in a SINGLE query.  I find I need 2 queries.

if you want only two columns in a single query, use this query


Select A.Salesman,A.SumOfInvoiceValue
From
(
SELECT SalesInvoices.Salesman, SalesInvoices.Year, Sum(SalesInvoices.InvoiceValue) AS SumOfInvoiceValue
FROM SalesInvoices
GROUP BY SalesInvoices.Salesman, SalesInvoices.Year
HAVING (((SalesInvoices.Year)="2012"))
) As A
