Ok, I have an ASP app I'm building. I have a page that returns results from an Access database based on some variables from a form. One of the fields it returns is "hours worked", and I want to add the hours from all the returned records, but I don't know where to start.

For example: Search for records between a certain date range, completed by a certain staff member. It returns 5 records and the hours worked are: 1.5, 2.5, 8.0, 5.0 and 3.5 for each record returned respectively. I'd like to add all of those up to show total hours worked as 20.5 hrs. Thanks for the help.

in You Asp Loop Through them and Add them to sum up

 While not Rs.eof

  TotalHours = Rs("Hours") + TotalHours


Response.write TotalHours

Thanks, that almost worked perfect. I just needed to change it slightly because it wasn't adding the values, it was just placing them next to each other.

I did this:

While not reports.eof

  TotalHours = abs(reports("work")) + abs(TotalHours)
