How to create a Calculated Field

    I have the following fields in table A:
     GL_ID|GL_Name_VC|    Amount     |Period_TI|Year_SI
      1000|liability |  -10,000.00   |  08     |  2005
      1001|  asset   |   20,000.00   |  08     |  2005
      1000|liability |   -9,000.00   |  09     |  2005
    the fields above have the following datatype:
     Fields        | Datatype                 
     GL_ID         | Integer            
     GL_Name_VC    | Variable Character
     Amount        | Integer
     Period_TI     | TinyInteger
     Year_SI       | SmallInteger
    The above database is running on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and i would like to query for a report that looks something as below:
    Description   Amount
    asset         20,000.00
    liability    (10,000.00)
    Net Asset     10,000.00
    The above report would list 2 columns as Description & Amount, next it would sort the Description
    column by GL_ID, next by Year 2005 & lastly by Period 08, with a net figure of asset minus liability.

    Guys, hope someone out there can help me with the sql command for the above report?

    Isnt the liability 19,000 instead of 10,000

    Here is the query
    Select GL_Name_VC as description, SUM(Amount) from <TableName> Group By GL_Name_VC

    The liability that are extracted should be from Period 08 in Year 2005,
    can we query with date criteria?

    Here is the query.
    SELECT GL_Name_VC AS description, SUM(Amount) 
    FROM <TableName> 
    WHERE Period_TI = 08
