Experts,

In SAS I am able to use a Proc Summary and it gives me exactly what I want.  Is there  a way in Access to get the same results.

My SAS statement looks like this.

Proc Summary Data=CLAIMS_TOT;
  Var BILLED ADJUD CLAIM_CT;
  BY MAINT FFSORCAPIND LICENSE PROV_NAME;
  Output Out=Total_APR_2013 Sum=;
Run;

It gives me totals for Billed ADJUD and CLAIM_CT by prov_name within license within ffsocapind within Maint(DATE)

In Access, that would be accomplished with a SQL Statement either by:

1. Writing a SQL statement directly.
2. Using a querydef (which is a saved SQL Statement along with some properties to control processing).
3. Using a Domain Funtion, such as DSUM()  (you typically use this in places where SQL is not allowed, but an expression is - all the Domain Functions represent simple SQL Statements).
4. You write a custom VBA function to return the data you want and there are numerous ways that you might write that to actually grab the data..

So the SQL query might look like:

SELECT Maint, FFSORDAPIND, LICENSE, Prov_Name, Sum(Billed) as SumOfBilled,
    SUM(AJDUD) as SumOfAdjud, SUM(CLAIM_CT) as SumOfClaimCt
FROM YourTableName
GROUP BY MAINT, FFSORCAPIND, LICENSE, PROV_NAME;
