Do we have any SQL Coders?

Hoping to get some help on a simple query I need to run. I don't have much experience with code writing; just creating queries in Access in Design View. I need to code this since Access for some stupid reason doesn't have Mode and Median functions built in like Excel and there's far too much data for me to be able to extract all of it and manipulate in a spreadsheet (Excel doesn't support enough rows).

Basically what I have is a table with SKUs, Stores, and Prices. I need to calculate both the Median and the Mode. My quick google search led me to a statement similar to this:

SELECT top 1 Price
FROM Retail_Pricing
ORDER BY count(*) DESC

Clearly, this isn't working correctly. Simply need the output to be SKU # and Mode/Median. I was hoping the above would get me the Mode. Haven't tried Median yet since that's a bit more involved.

Try this:

SELECT top 1 sum(Price)
FROM Retail_Pricing

I don't have any knowledge about it but I think we need to extract data from the tables and SELECT statement is used with the name of that table created in the Database.
