I need to find the total (RTotal) of a specific value (Reimbursement) in a table. Everything works except that without line 7 i get the full total of all the values. With line 7 I get a return of $0. There are two defined values in that field. This is a ColdFusion app connecting to an Informix database.

1. <cfquery name="qShowReimbTotal" datasource="expenses">
2. SELECT SUM(root.daily_exp.amount) + SUM(root.daily_exp.mileagetotal) AS RTotal
3. FROM root.daily_exp
4. WHERE ((root.daily_exp.SelectDate BETWEEN #CreateODBCDate(form.StartDate)# AND  #CreateODBCDate(form.EndDate)#)) AND
5. root.daily_exp.id = <cfqueryparam value="#Session.first#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_var"> AND
6. root.daily_exp.submitdate IS NULL AND
7. root.daily_exp.exptype = <cfqueryparam value="Reimbursement">
8. </cfquery>

Thanks for any help.
