Plotting against Date (collating months)

    To track usage of pieces of equipment, I use Excel.
    I have a couple of data columns:

    Date (by Day) - Equipment Name - Hours - $ collected

    I'd like to plot a number of graphs.

    1. $ Collected Vs Date (by day) -> (Done easily)

    2. Bar graph of : Equipment Vs Date (by month) (so if I have 3 pieces of Equipment, I will see a graph of 3 bars in each month.
    3. Total Hours Vs Date (by month)
    4.Total $collected Vs Date (by month) -> Thinking that 1. was easy to do, I changed the X-axis to do months but it didn't give the Total $ collected. Instead it showed the highest charge that month.

    Anyone help?

    Could you provide some sample data in a workbook?
    Makes it far easier to help out that way
