    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.
