I Need SQL Query Statment For Showing Balance Sheet

I have a MS Access Table AccountsDetail having following fields

AccountNo         AccName          Group        Parent        Type              Debit Amount

1                      Assets              Asset                           General
101                  CurrentAssets    Asset              1           General          
10101              Cash                 Asset           101           Detail                10000
2                     Liabilities           Liability                        General
201                 Payable             Liability            2           General            
20101             Farhan              Liability         201           Detail                -10000

I Need a SQL Query Statment, that could show a Balance sheet where only "General" Type Accounts must appear, carrying the Total Debit amount of thier child accounts which can be Further General or Detail Accounts.
Thanx in Advance.

If the AccountNo is Stored as a text then you can do it with:

Select AccountNo,AccName,Group,Parent,Type,DebitAmount FROM AccountsDetail  WHERE Type = 'General' or Type = 'Detail' Order By AccountNo


This can ONLY BE DONE IF AccountNo is stored as TEXT

Text Sort VS Numeric Sort

AccountNo is stored as text, but actual problem is this that I want to update the Parent "General Type" Account's Debit Amount field with total debit amount of its child accounts and not show detail accounts in Balance Sheet. We can say "General" Type Accounts are actually the controlling accounts.

hi fsaims..

I think u want to show the records of "general" type..and the sum of debit amounts of the child accounts in the same result...

so try this...

select gen.*,(select sum(debitamounts) from accountsdetails where parent = gen.accountno) childsum from accountsdetails gen where gen.type = 'General'

You will get the sum of debits(child accounts) in childsum field...

Let me know if you need more help

select gen.*,(select sum(debitamounts) from accountsdetails where parent = gen.accountno) from accountsdetails gen where gen.type = 'General'

Thanx Kamlesh for replying, here is only one Table named AccountsDetails, and I put some sample records in my actual question. I want to update the debitamount of Accounts having Type"General"  with the sum of debitamount of its Child Accounts. Child Accounts can be another General or can be Detail Type Accounts. Suppose
"Assets" is a General Type Account, its number is "1", It has not parent. "Current Assets" is a General Type Account, its number is 101, its Parent Account is "Assets". "Cash" is a Detail Type Account, its number is 10101, and its parent is "Current Assets". "Bank" is Detail Type Account, its number is 10102, and its parent is "Current Assets". "Cash" Account have debitamount of $1000 and "Bank" Account have debitamount of $2000. Now I want to update "Current Assets" debit amount with sum of "Cash" and "Bank" debitamount, and "Assets" debitamount with "Current Assets" debitamount.
Thanx
