I don't see how you get itemA numbers but based on what I think you want, something like:  

select item, to_char(date_col,'MM-YYYY'), sum(qty) from table
group by item, to_char(date_col,'MM-YYYY');

Hi

It is not just a sum pr. month - it is a balance.

Example with item A:
The sum/balance for 01-2012 is 3 (5 and -2)
The sum/balance for 02-2012 is 4 (1 for month 02 and 3 for months 01)


The idea is to make a balance over time.
Another example:
I have 5 of X on stock.
In January I sell 2, balance in the end of January is 3 (5-2)
In February I sell 1 and buy 10, balance at the end of February is 12 (5-2-1+10)
In March I sell 5, balance at the end of March i 7 (5-2-1+10-5)
and so on....

X;01-2012;3
X;02-2012;12
X;03-2012;7

I think you can only do that with a subselect:

select distinct tb1.item, 
   to_char(tb1.dat, 'mm-yyyy') per, 
   (select sum(qty) 
    from testtb tb2 
    where tb2.item = tb1.item and 
      to_char(tb2.dat, 'yyyymm') <= to_char(tb1.dat, 'yyyymm')) balance 
from testtb tb1 
group by tb1.item, tb1.dat 
order by tb1.item, per;

See the below, combine a group by with analytical function -
SQL> select *
  2  from tbl1;

ITEM                 DT                 QTY
-------------------- ----------- ----------
A                    12-jan-2012          5
A                    27-jan-2012         -2
A                    04-feb-2012          1
B                    08-nov-2011         -1
B                    08-nov-2011          3
B                    15-nov-2011          7
C                    17-jan-2012         -5
C                    25-feb-2012          3

8 rows selected.

SQL>
SQL> select item, dt month, sum(qty) over( partition by item order by to_date(dt, 'mm-yyyy')) balance
  2  from (
  3  select item, to_char(dt, 'mm-yyyy') dt, sum(qty) qty
  4  from tbl1
  5  group by item, to_char(dt, 'mm-yyyy')
  6  )
  7  order by 1,2;

ITEM                 MONTH      BALANCE
-------------------- ------- ----------
A                    01-2012          3
A                    02-2012          4
B                    11-2011          9
C                    01-2012         -5
C                    02-2012         -2
