> The GROUP BY clause must explicitly reference any fields that are not already defined as aggregate values. In your case it should be:
GROUP BY account,category, year

> This behavior was changed in VFP 8.0 and was done to move VFP into closer compliance with the ANSI 92 SQL standards, and to remove any possibility of erroneous results. The details are all listed in the help for SET ENGINEBEHAVIOR but they are in the section for "TO 80" though - which is probably why you missed them :)
