Access Report issue

I am creating a report that I want running sums in. The problem is that the field I am summing has 3 different entries that I need to sum. I have tried doing the IIF statement, but it doesn't seem to work.

Pertinent information:

Access 2003
Report pulls data from 1 query
data pulled is location, employee, several workstation related fields and an ITEMID field which has the data I need to sum

right now it will group on Location > Employee.
It lists all workstation details related to the Employee.
ItemID holds "type" of workstation (Laptop, desktop,terminal services client...)
I want to have my report display the sums of each of these types based on employee.
I have a display that shows the sum of each type of workstation. It adds each one up together (I have 3 desktops, 1 laptop & 2 TS clients - it displays each sum as being 6 total)

What I have found out:

the running sum will not work because it grabs an increment for each time ANY data in the ITEMID field is displayed.

How can I increment each type of workstation seperately so that it will show 1 desktop, 3 laptops and 2 TS clients?

Excuse me if I psted in the wrong place, but I felt that VB would be the way to handle this.

Thanks in advance

Your question is little complex and noone answered it because they might not be getting what you are actually looking for. I think it will be easy to understand your problem if you present your tables with sample entries and your desired output with sample results. I read your post about three times and I am still unsure I get your right or not.
Kind Regards
