Experts,

I have created a Union query and I need to sum the amounts where the tblDraws_Details1.ID = tblRepayments.DrawIDrpmt
I know that I need to group based on the ID and how to do this in SQL is escaping me.  

I am greatful for you help.  
Please see attached union query and I think you can see what I am trying to do.  You can see it is sorted on ID and I need to Group those IDs and the sum will return.

here is the sql as I have it:
SELECT tblDraws_Details1.ID, Sum(tblDraws_Details1.Amount) AS SumOfAmount,  "" as PaymentMadeDummy
FROM tblDraws_Details1
GROUP BY tblDraws_Details1.ID

UNION ALL SELECT tblRepayment.DrawIDrpmt, Sum(tblRepayment.Amount) AS SumOfAmount, tblRepayment.PaymentMadeYN
FROM tblRepayment
GROUP BY tblRepayment.DrawIDrpmt, tblRepayment.PaymentMadeYN
HAVING (((tblRepayment.PaymentMadeYN)="Yes"));

I think what you need is an additional query to sum the union output:
SELECT 
    UNION.ID, 
    Sum(UNION.SumOfAmount) AS SumAmounts, 
    UNION.PaymentMadeDummy
FROM 
    [UNION]
GROUP BY 
    UNION.ID, 
    UNION.PaymentMadeDummy;

Hi Gustav, thanks for the response.  I followed the suggestion as above however the amounts do not appear to be summed for where tblDraws_Details1.ID = tblRepayments.DrawIDrpmt

Do you happen to see what the issue might be?

I think you need the same as in your other question: a query that use the above query as source, then group by ID and sum SumAmounts.

If reusing your UNION query (you should name it differently) it's only this:
SELECT 
    [UNION].ID, 
    Sum([UNION].SumOfAmount) AS SumAmounts
FROM 
    [UNION]
GROUP BY 
    [UNION].ID;
