    I have the following fields in table A:

    Code:
     GL_ID|GL_Name_VC|    Amount     |Period_TI|Year_SI|
    ===================================================
      1000|  Sales_HW|  -20,000.00   |  01     |  2005
    ===================================================
      1000|  Sales_SW|  -10,000.00   |  01     |  2005
    ===================================================
      1001|  Cost_HW |    5,000.00   |  01     |  2005
    ===================================================
      1001|  Cost_SW |    5,000.00   |  01     |  2005
    the fields above have the following datatype:

    Code:
     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:

    Code:
    Sales Category  |   Sales   |  Cost  |  Profit 
    =================================================
         HW         |-20,000.00 |5,000.00| -15,000.00
         SW         |-10,000.00 |5,000.00|  -5,000.00
    =================================================
        Total       |-30,000.00 |10,000.00|-20,000.00 
    The above report have 4 columns, with last column being a calculated field (Sales-Cost)

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