I have the following table: John's daily expenses:
ID Date item cost

1 01/01/2021 milk 2
2 01/01/2021 apple 3
3 01/01/2021 cheese 7

4 05/01/2021 milk 4
5 05/01/2021 bread 2
6 05/01/2021 butter 12

7 08/01/2021 milk 2
8 08/01/2021 apple 5
9 08/01/2021 orange 6

how can I make a query to get the whole cost in each day, and also the sum of the expenses up to each day like the following?
Date dailypaid total

01/01/21 12 12

05/01/2021 18 30

08/01/2021 13 43

thank you

For the first item, study on Aggregate queries. For the second, search this site on Running Sum in Query

copy and paste on SQL View of Query Designer.
replace yourTable with the Name of your table.
then you study.
Code:
SELECT yourTable.Date,
    Sum(yourTable.Cost) AS Total,
    DSum("Cost","yourTable","[Date] <= #" & Format([yourTable].[Date],"m/d/yyyy") & "#") AS RunningTotal
FROM yourTable
GROUP BY yourTable.Date;

very simple and instructive for me as a beginner. :)
Thank you.
How would it be if we have a number as OrderID instead of the date?
I mean the original table is like
Code:
ID      Date          item    cost        OrdeID

1   01/01/2021   milk        2              47
2   01/01/2021   apple      3              47
3   01/01/2021   cheese    7              47
4   05/01/2021    milk       4              51
5   05/01/2021    bread     2              51
6   05/01/2021    butter    12             51
.
.
.

And the resultant query will be
orderID dailypaid    total

  47            12             12

  51            18              30
.
.
.
I mean can we group it by orderid? How will the dsum be?
thank you

add the ID to your DSum()
Code:
SELECT yourTable.Date,
    Sum(yourTable.Cost) AS Total,
    DSum("Cost","yourTable","[Date] <= #" & Format([yourTable].[Date],"m/d/yyyy") & "# And [ID] <= [yourTable].[ID]) AS RunningTotal
FROM yourTable
GROUP BY yourTable.Date;
