I am trying to get this result from oracle 9i:

Job               Dept10               Dept20          Dept30           Total
ANALYST                                8000                                  6000
CLERK             1300                 1900                 950           4150
MANAGER        2450                 2975                2850          8275
PRESIDENT      5000                                                         5000
 
I saw an example using nested decodes that looked someting like this, but I can't seem to put it together. Thanks in advance for looking.
