    How do I add a sum of numbers from several fields in access 2003 to place
    into a table and then take the average of those numbers as a percentage into
    the same table

    Normally would would not do that.

    First you normally would not store the result of a calculation in
    Access. Generally you would just recompute it as needed. This prevents
    the kind of errors that happen when one of the numbers gets changed.

    You can use a query to compute the total of several fields of the same
    record, but even that brings up a question. It is likely (but not always)
    an indication of a bad table design. It might be far better if those field
    were in another related table.

    Maybe if you give us some more information we can make some additional
    suggestions.

    Now once you have that total you can continue your calculation of an
    average, but do please provide us with some more detail.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
