Building Reports


I'm new to reports.  I have a task database that has many entries by many of the same people.  For example,

John jones with enter many tasks in a month, all being the same except for date and time.

Bill Adams will do the same

Jenny Jones will do the same


At the end of the month, I have to build a report showing each name and their total of tasks entered.  My problem is that because each person has many entries, I don't seem to be able to come up with a list like this:


John Jones          312

Bill Adams             15

Jenny Jones        125


I don't seem to be able to make the summary part show what I need.  How can I make this happen?


DB layout

First_name, Last_Name, Emp_id, Task, Task_date, Task_type (this type is the same type between all persons,i.e. 12)


Thanks  for any help you can offer.
