I am looking for a query/view to add to a database to retrieve and combine data from an existing table. Table named "Bin" for the purpose of a crystal report. The table consists of 1000's of items, many duplicates in different bins with a different on hand and burn QTY. The results should not duplicate items, should not list any bin but should add the OnHand and burn QTY of duplicate items as TotalQTY

Item Bin      OnHand      Burn      
abc        1           2                 0      
dgf       2           3                 0      
abc       3           4                 3      
abc       4           8            8      
acdf       5           0                 0      
dgf       6           0                 0      
xyz       7           1               1
                        
                        
                        
Query should combine like items and add their onHand and burn colums to return the below results      
                  
Item         TotalQTY                  
abc            25                  
dgf             3                  
acdf             0
xyz          2
