I need to create a running total in my access query and from what I've read it says to use the DSUM function but I'm not entirely sure how to set it up. I could use a little help creating the running total. My query is below. The column that I need to create the running total for is the "Grind Hours: ACTHOURS" column. I need it to sum up that column for any dates (WorkWeek) less than the date entered as my criteria date. The "WorkWeeK" column is the actual date field which just shows a normal date when run. The criteria is actually in the qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1GrindHours query and that's why you don't see that criteria in the query syntax below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SELECT qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.WorkWeek, qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.GTHours AS Capacity, qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1GrindHours.ACTHOURS AS [Grind Hours], qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.MonWeek, qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.LastFriday, qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.TotalDays, qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.TotalCapacity, IIf([MonWeek]>Date()-Weekday(Date())+2,[TotalCapacity]-[Grind Hours],[TotalCapacity]-([Grind Hours])) AS HoursAvailable, IIf([MonWeek]>Date()-Weekday(Date())+2,[Grind Hours]/[TotalCapacity],([Grind Hours])/[TotalCapacity]) AS LoadPercent
FROM qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1GrindHours INNER JOIN qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity ON qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1GrindHours.WorkWeek = qryCellLoadDailySummaryVS1Capacity.WorkWeek;
