Sorry in advance if I'm not asking this correctly or being vague.  I have this query:
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) AS Expr1, datOrigSaleDate, folioRecId,
                      fgn_countyRecId, txtCertNum, txtParcelId, txtAcctNum, txtBuyerName, txtBuyerNum, decRate, decFace, decCertBalDue, monthDiff, totalInt, currentInt,
                      bitHomestead, txtStatus, datDateCreated
FROM         dbo.tbl_Folio
WHERE     (0 = 0)
GROUP BY DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)), datOrigSaleDate, folioRecId, fgn_countyRecId, txtCertNum,
                      txtParcelId, txtAcctNum, txtBuyerName, txtBuyerNum, decRate, decFace, decCertBalDue, monthDiff, totalInt, currentInt, txtStatus, datDateCreated,
                      bitHomestead
HAVING      (DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) > 16) AND (txtBuyerName IN (N'Venus 1 LLC', N'Mars 1 LLC',
                      N'Miller Max Or Miller Gary', N'Brown William S', N'Equifunding Inc'))
ORDER BY txtCertNum

Now I want to create another column for output in this query called "Additionals" that would run this query for each row:
SELECT     SUM(decFace) AS totAdds
                  FROM         dbo.tbl_Folio
                  GROUP BY txtParcelId
                  HAVING      (txtParcelId LIKE '@txtParcelId')            

Is this possible?

K figured out my own question.  The answer is:

SELECT     DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) AS Expr1, datOrigSaleDate, folioRecId, fgn_countyRecId,
                      txtCertNum, txtParcelId, txtAcctNum, txtBuyerName, txtBuyerNum, decRate, decFace, decCertBalDue, monthDiff, totalInt, currentInt, bitHomestead,
                      txtStatus, datDateCreated,
                          (SELECT     SUM(decFace) AS Expr1
                            FROM          dbo.tbl_Folio AS f2
                            WHERE      (txtParcelId = f.txtParcelId)) AS additionals
FROM         dbo.tbl_Folio AS f

Thanks Angel.  I didn't see your solution until after I added mine and it will work too.  I'll give you the points.  Can you help me further with what my end goal is?

I now need to add another column that basically will do these calculations but since it isn't a query I'm not sure how to do it.

                  curInt.numMonths = (dateDiff("m", dateFormat(arguments.saleDate, "mm/1/yyyy"), Now()));
                  curInt.totInt = ((arguments.interestRate / 12)  * curInt.numMonths);
                  curInt.curInterest = (curInt.totInt * arguments.certFaceValue);

I need to my column have the value of curInt.curInterest.  Any suggestions?

               curInt.numMonths = dateDiff(month, dateadd( day, 1- datepart(day, arguments.saleDate), arguments.saleDate, getdate()));
               curInt.totInt = ((arguments.interestRate / 12)  * (dateDiff(month, dateadd( day, 1- datepart(day, arguments.saleDate), arguments.saleDate, getdate()))) );
               curInt.curInterest = (((arguments.interestRate / 12)  * (dateDiff(month, dateadd( day, 1- datepart(day, arguments.saleDate), arguments.saleDate, getdate()))) ) * arguments.certFaceValue);

I've created a scalar function:

CREATE FUNCTION currentInterest
( @numMonths int, @intRate decimal(18,2), @faceVal decimal(18,2) )
RETURNS decimal(18,2)
AS
BEGIN
  RETURN (((@intRate/12)*@numMonths)*@faceVal)
END

which works.

NOW...  how do I implement it in my SQL statement?: The line in question is surrounded by asteriks.  
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT
      DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) AS monthDiff,
      DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, (SELECT dbo.FirstMonthDay(GetDate()))) AS monthInt,
      *****SELECT      dbo.currentInterest(f.monthDiff, f.decRate, f.decFace) AS curInt*****
      datOrigSaleDate,
      folioRecId,
      fgn_countyRecId,
      txtCertNum,
      txtParcelId,
    txtAcctNum,
      txtBuyerName,
      txtBuyerNum,
      decRate,
      decFace,
      bitHomestead,
      txtStatus,
      datDateCreated,
    (SELECT     SUM(decFace) AS Expr1
       FROM          dbo.tbl_Folio AS f2
     WHERE      (txtParcelId = f.txtParcelId)) AS additionals
FROM         dbo.tbl_Folio AS f
WHERE     (0 = 0)
AND (DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) > 16)
AND txtBuyerName IN ('Venus 1 LLC', 'Mars 1 LLC', 'Miller Max Or Miller Gary', 'Brown William S', 'Equifunding Inc')
ORDER BY datOrigSaleDate DESC


When I run it I get these errors:
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'SELECT'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 5
Incorrect syntax near 'datOrigSaleDate'.
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 20
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'AS'.

Hey Angel,

Once I have this:
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT
     DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) AS monthDiff,
     DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, (SELECT dbo.FirstMonthDay(GetDate()))) AS monthInt,
     dbo.currentInterest(f.monthDiff, f.decRate, f.decFace) AS curInt,
     datOrigSaleDate,
     folioRecId,
     fgn_countyRecId,
     txtCertNum,
     txtParcelId,
    txtAcctNum,
     txtBuyerName,
     txtBuyerNum,
     decRate,
     decFace,
     bitHomestead,
     txtStatus,
     datDateCreated,
    *****(SELECT     SUM(decFace) AS Expr1
      FROM          dbo.tbl_Folio AS f2
     WHERE      (txtParcelId = f.txtParcelId)) AS additionals*****
FROM         dbo.tbl_Folio AS f
WHERE     (0 = 0)
AND (DATEDIFF(mm, datOrigSaleDate, CONVERT(DATETIME, '2006-04-01 00:00:00', 102)) > 16)
AND txtBuyerName IN ('Venus 1 LLC', 'Mars 1 LLC', 'Miller Max Or Miller Gary', 'Brown William S', 'Equifunding Inc')
ORDER BY datOrigSaleDate DESC

Can I run another SUM of the line I have in asteriks in the same query?  If so what's the syntax?

Sytactically it's sound but it's not returning the expected result.  For each row I calculate additionals which is working fine.  I now need to calculate all the additionals for a grand sum.
