You want to pivot the data in other words...

sum(case when type = 'IN' then Amt else 0 end) as Total_IN,
sum(case when type = 'CM' then Amt else 0 end) as Total_CM,

Is it possible within the WHEN clause of the CASE statement to have
multiple operations?
I have a condition where I need to get both the count and total amount for
selected transaction types into separate variables by transaction type.
I do not want to use a cursor to summarize by type.

Transaction File
Type   2A
Amt   11  2

Type can be 'IN', 'CM,',PA','DM'

I want to get the total transactions and amount by type.
