These are the sample data that I want to group:
Description      Amount
Dues      200
Dues      200
Dues      200
Dues      200
Dues      200
Dues      200
Dues      200
Dues      200
Donation      50
Donation      100
Donation      150
Donation      200
Donation      250
Donation      300
Others      100
Others      100
Others      100
Others      100
Interest      50
Tax      8

I want  to have them summarized as follows:

SUMMARY      
      
      
Dues             1600
Donation      1050
Others              400
Interest              50
Less Tax       -8

Net                  3092


Thanks.

Hi,

Please find the Query for the same
;WITH CTE AS
(
SELECT Description, SUM(CASE WHEN Description = 'Tax' THEN -Amount ELSE Amount END) AMNT
FROM T1 GROUP BY Description
)

SELECT * FROM CTE
UNION ALL
SELECT 'NET', SUM(AMNT) FROM CTE

The following seems to be working for me:

CREATE TABLE MyTable (Description varchar(50), Amount numeric(10,2))
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Dues', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Donation', 50)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Donation', 100)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Donation', 150)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Donation', 200)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Donation', 250)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Donation', 300)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Others', 100)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Others', 100)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Others', 100)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Others', 100)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Interest', 50)
INSERT INTO MyTable (Description, Amount) VALUES ('Tax', 8)

SELECT z.Description, z.Amount
FROM 
    (SELECT 1 AS Ranking, Description, SUM(Amount) AS Amount
    FROM MyTable
    WHERE Description <> 'Tax'
    GROUP BY Description
    UNION
    SELECT 2 AS Ranking, 'Less Tax' AS Description, -SUM(Amount) AS Amount
    FROM MyTable
    WHERE Description = 'Tax'
    UNION
    SELECT 3 AS Ranking, 'Net' AS Description, 
        SUM(CASE Description WHEN 'Tax' THEN -Amount ELSE Amount END) AS Amount
    FROM MyTable) z
ORDER BY z.Ranking, z.Description

DROP TABLE MyTable
