However, as I mentioned earlier, if you want to calculate summary data, you will find that the Simple Query Wizard is the best way to go--at least until you learn about grouping in Design view. After you create a query in the Design view, you will view it in the query datasheet.

  1. Add the tables you need to the query.
  2. Put the fields you want to see in the design grid.

This Simulation takes you through the creation of a simple query:
