Something like this?

Dim inv As String * 8
Dim ddate As String * 9
Dim amt As String * 7
Dim amt5 As String * 7
Dim deal As String * 15
Dim paid As String * 3

Dim a as integer
dim B as integer

Open "C:\invoice\dollar.dat" For Input As #1
a = 0
B = 0

Do Until EOF(1)
Input #1, inv, ddate, amt, amt5, deal, paid

Printer.Print "***********"
Printer.Print "Inv: "; trim(inv)
Printer.Print "Ddate: "; trim(ddate)
Printer.Print "Amt5: "; trim(amt5)
Printer.Print "Deal: "; trim(deal)
Printer.Print "paid: "; trim(paid)
Printer.Print

a = a + val(amt)
B = B + val(amt5)
Loop

Close #1

Printer.Print
Printer.Print "**** Totals ****"
Printer.Print "Amt: "; str(a)
Printer.Print "Amt5: "; str (B)
