SQL Statement in Enterprise Manager

Last Modified: 2010-08-05
I am creating a view in Enterprise Manager.  I have Hours, OurRate and Revenue.  I am trying to calculate (Revenue - (Hours * OutRate) but keep getting a Negatinve (Hours * OutRate).  It is seeing the Revenue as Zero.  Here is my statement:

SELECT     dbo.Profit.Project_ID, SUM(dbo.Profit.Revenue) AS Billed, SUM(dbo.Profit.[Hour] * dbo.Profit.outRate) AS HoursCost,
                      SUM(dbo.Profit.Revenue - dbo.Profit.[Hour] * dbo.Profit.outRate) AS Profit_Loss
FROM         dbo.Company INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Profit ON dbo.Company.Company_ID = dbo.Profit.Company_ID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Project ON dbo.Profit.Project_ID = dbo.Project.Project_ID LEFT OUTER JOIN
                      dbo.Employee ON dbo.Company.Company_Account_Executive = dbo.Employee.Employee_ID
GROUP BY dbo.Profit.Project_ID
