    Hello,
    This will probably be a silly question but for some reason I cant figure it out.

    I have 6 records such as following:

    james 16
    james 18
    james 0
    laura 2
    laura 4
    laura 6

    I need a report or a query to show the name only once but second column to be a sum such as:

    james 34
    laura 12

    thank you

    You use the "View Totals" on the Main Menu and then Group By Name and Sum by value.
