Another way of getting totals, whether it be by group or set is to use the CUBE and ROLLUP predicates.


By group (each grouping of FIELD_DESCRIPTION will have a total sum):


SQL
SELECT
	FIELD_DESCRIPTION
	, SUM(FIELD_VALUE)
FROM
	tbl_Data
GROUP BY
	FIELD_DESCRIPTION
WITH CUBE

Or:


By Cube (the final set of FIELD_VALUE will have a total sum):


SQL
SELECT
	FIELD_DESCRIPTION
	, SUM(FIELD_VALUE)
FROM
	tbl_Data
GROUP BY
	FIELD_DESCRIPTION
WITH ROLLUP
