How sum values in query designer using certain criteria

I'm trying to sum values in query designer using certain criteria.  Here is what I have so far but isn't working:

Account: [Balance] where [Type]="Football Account"


I have several other fields to capture in the query which is why I need to do it this way.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

are all fields using same criteria where [Type]="Football Account"?
if yes, then just have select sum(balance) from...group by...
if not, then you must use a iif() function, like iif([Type]="Football Account,[Balance),0), then do a sum of that calculated field.

It would be more helpful if you would post the entire SQL string.  Switch to SQL view and copy the string.
