Advanced Sql query

Greetings,
I have a table like such:

Year       Type    
1990        A
1990        A
1990        B
1991        A
1991        B
1992        A
1992        A
1992       B

What I would like to do is write a query that will give me the additive cumulative values per year.  So the output might look like this:

Year         ACount        BCount
1990           2                      1
1991           3                      2
1992           5                      3


I hope this is clear enough:)  Thanks in advance!

, sum(case when Type = 'A' then 1 else 0 end) Acount
, sum(case when Type = 'B' then 1 else 0 end) Bcount
from yourtable
 group by year

Thanks for the quick reply.  The query you provided only gives the cumulative amount for each year.  I would like a 'rolling' cumulative amount per year, retreiving TypeA and TypeB as an additive function.

Thanks in advance.

you can try this.
select [YEAR]
, sum(case when [Type] = 'A' then 1 else 0 end) Acount
, sum(case when [Type] = 'B' then 1 else 0 end) Bcount,
(select COUNT(*) from your_table t2 where [Type] = 'A' and t2.[Year]<= t1.[Year]) CumACount,
(select COUNT(*) from your_table t2 where [Type] = 'B' and t2.[Year]<= t1.[Year]) CumBCount
from your_table t1
 group by [YEAR]
