    hi,
    the following:

    SELECT newQuery.tempMonth, Sum(newQuery.forecast)
    FROM newQuery
    GROUP BY newQuery.tempMonth;

    Becomes…

    SELECT newQuery.tempMonth, Sum(newQuery.forecast) AS Expr1
    FROM newQuery
    GROUP BY newQuery.tempMonth;

    In access97, why?
    thanks!

    that's why:

    SELECT newQuery.tempMonth, Sum(newQuery.ActivationForecast) AS SumOfActivationForecast
    FROM newQuery
    GROUP BY newQuery.tempMonth;
    thanks!

    Yes, access doesn't know what Sum(newQuery.forecast) should be named, so it assigns a column name to it.
