Experts,

I have an issue trying to get a Beginning Balance.
Beginning Balance = tblFacility.Commitments.FacilityAmount - Q_Disbursement.SumOfAmount
but for the first record the balance must be just the tblFacility.Commitments.FacilityAmount
I cant seem to get the balance correct.  

You can see my Q_Available in the attached.   I am way off and dont understand why.
Grateful for some help.

Without some example output it is quite difficult to figure out what you are after, but take a look at the attached demo where you perhaps can get some ideas.

Hello there Gustav,

Glad to see your response.  I was actually looking at another question you had answered for me awhile ago and was similar.   I cant quite follow the queries and apply it to a different situation.   here is the question:  https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28584650/Fee-calculation-DAY-COUNT.html

anyways, back to some sample data.  I should have included some...sorry.   Please see attached and screen print of the attachment.  I hope my data is clear as to what I need.  Let me know if you need some more details.  I think my approach now is just to have a balance.  Thank you for your patience.

Look at sample. There is one possible problem: I've used ID as an order field instead of ValueDate, because you have more then one record some days. If ValueDate could be changed in existing records, calculations will be in wrong order. Main idea is the same as was in Gustav's sample
