Group Access data by month

I need to pull a query that returns information about quotes issued on a system by month. Specifically I need to see how many quotes, per month a particular rep has issued. I don't want to see a list of all the quoted dates, rather a list of all the months of the year with a number, or a zero, next to each month showing how many quotes have been issued.

Any suggestions welcomed.

The query provided by Rey will do the trick, however, if you really want to see the months with zero orders you will need to use this query:
select Format(dateSerial(ym.y, ym.m, 1), "yyyy-mm") as yyyymm, Format(dateSerial(ym.y, ym.m, 1), "yyyy-mmm") as yyyymmm, count(t.yy) as cnt
FROM
(SELECT DISTINCT Year([dateField]) as y, months.m 
FROM yourtable, 
(Select top 1 1 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 2 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 3 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 4 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 5 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 6 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 7 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 8 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 9 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 10 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 11 as m from yourtable UNION 
Select top 1 12 as m from yourtable) as months) as ym
LEFT JOIN (SELECT year([dateField]) as yy, month([dateField]) as mm FROM yourtable) as t
ON t.yy = ym.y AND t.mm = ym.m
group by  Format(dateSerial(ym.y, ym.m, 1), "yyyy-mm"), Format(dateSerial(ym.y, ym.m, 1), "yyyy-mmm")
ORDER BY 1

Open in new window

Will return something similar to this: query result

In report design:

Add Group On Expression: Year(theDate)
Add Group On Expression: Month(theDate)

In Month group header:
add a field: =Year(theDate) & " - " & Month(theDate)
add a field: =Count(theDate)
