Basically you need to know the logic on how to calculate it, whether it's just a simple summation of column's values or some filtering criteria or logic are being involved.

it also depends on what kind of database you are using so that we know what syntax is to be used for the calculation. but as a start, I guess you need to use SUM clause in your SQL statement, like:

select category, sum(yourDepositField) as bal from yourTable where yourAnotherfield = <whatever> group by category
