    I think this question should likely be in the " Database Development Section". As far as your question is concerned, i recommend you to go through " Normalization". ( If you are trying to develop a database )

    Or else you need to do the analysis manually for the given set of data.

    Here is an article from the Database Development FAQ which, explains what database normalization is.

    Re: Grading Scores

    Thread moved to 'Database Development' forum (the 'VB6' forum is only meant for questions which don't fit in more specific forums) (thanks for reporting it to us Nightwalker83 )

    Normalization would be a good idea, but I don't think it is actually necessary to get what you want.

    It would also be a good idea to rename your fields to remove spaces, as they cause various problems, and those problems cannot always be solved in a reasonable way.

    To get summary data use a Group By, which in this case would be something like:
    Code:
    SELECT [Student Name], Subject, Term, Sum(Score)
    FROM TableName
    GROUP BY [Student Name], Subject, Term

    I would add Sch Year to the select list and Group by list that SI showed you also.

    I worried about whether you are using a programming language(like vb6) or directly trying to manipulate the database or you just need an idea for "how to analyse student marks to generate grades".
