I have the following query from a stored procedure, and I want to combing the ShortDescrption value in the counts by the names listed in the where clause so that it counts all Approved as one count for example, instead of several. How do I do that?
select 
(select Count(1) LoanCount from  @SummaryReportBasic), 
ShortDescription ,
LoanAmount = sum(loanamount),
CountofLoan from @SummaryReportBasic
where shortdescription in ('Approved', 'Approved and awaiting Esign and/Or Certification', 'Certified and Ready for Disbursement','Pending','On Hold','Approved but Cancelled', 'Cancelled/Withdrawn', 'Denied')
Group by shortdescription, CountofLoan
Order by shortdescription

Hope this helps:

If I misunderstood your requirement, give the sample result set of the query below and the expected result set to help you better
select 
ShortDescription ,
Count(1) LoanCount, 
LoanAmount = sum(loanamount) 
from @SummaryReportBasic
where shortdescription in ('Approved', 'Approved and awaiting Esign and/Or Certification', 'Certified and Ready for Disbursement','Pending','On Hold','Approved but Cancelled', 'Cancelled/Withdrawn', 'Denied')
Group by shortdescription
Order by shortdescription

That query provides the following dataset, and I need to combing rows were the shortdescription IS the same. Its lists them separately. So all Approved as one row, all Approve and awaiting, etc.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------- --
21          Approved                                                                                             10000       1
21          Approved                                                                                             34081       4
21          Approved                                                                                             356423      23
21          Approved and awaiting                                                                        10001       1
21          Approved and awaiting                                                                        11555       2
21          Approved and awaiting                                                                        247156      25
21          Approved and awaiting                                                                        351008      31
21          Approved but Cancelled                                                                       10000       1
