How to make a condition for making a SUM

P: n/a
Hello

Is there an alternative for the Excel-function "SumIF" in Access?
Why?

I have one table with profits and expenses.
First field, description (text): indication like "Expense" or "Profit"
Second field (numerical): the amount

It's easy to make a total and sub totals in a report. Even the wizard can do this.

Description Amount
Income A 100
Income B 100
Income C 100
Sum(Amount) 300

Expense A 100
Expense B 100
Sum(Amount) 200

Sum(Amount) 500 That's what I get right now.

What I like to compute: Sum(Income) minus Sum(Expense).
So the result should be 300 instead of 500.

How to make the calculation "Income" minus "Expense"?

Thanks !!!
