Sum only positive or negative values on an ACCESS 2003 form

I have a form for which I want three values, the sum of all the claim amounts, then the sum of only the positive amounts and a sum of only the negative amounts.  The sum of all claim amounts is easy, but there does not seem to be a SumIf function where I can tell the text control to only sum positive numbers - is this possible?

You could use DSum.

Negative:

=DSum("[YourField]", "[TableOrQueryName]", "[YourField]<0")

Positive:

=DSum("[YourField]", "[TableOrQueryName]", "[YourField]>0")

Yes, was missing the idea of the less or greater, thank you.
