if you make the open account column a templated column, you can create your own footer template with a label in it, then on the gridview_bound event, do something like

Sub myGridViewDataBound(...) Handles myGridView.DataBound
   Dim Total as Single = 0    
   For each row as GridViewRow in myGridView.Rows
         Total += row.Cells(the integer of Open Account cell).Text
   Next
   CType(myGridView.FindControl("myTotalLabel"), Label).Text = Total
End Sub

If you declare Total in the rowdatabound, it will reset to zero every time a row binds...also, if you don't specify the rowtype, it will error on the header/footer rows.
Below uses Northwind and gets the numbers 2 different ways and displays them 2 different ways.

    Private TotalQuantity As Integer
    Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs)
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            'Use dataitem to get data
            TotalUnitPrice += CType(e.Row.DataItem("UnitPrice"), Decimal)
            'use control to get data
            Dim lb As Label
            lb = CType(e.Row.Cells(3).FindControl("lbQuantity"), Label)
            TotalQuantity += CType(lb.Text, Integer)
        ElseIf e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.Footer Then
            'write total to the cell
            e.Row.Cells(2).Text = TotalUnitPrice.ToString
            'write total to the label
