Calculate input fields ... give total

I have a dynamically generated form that's being called from the database using ASP.  The amount of rows is dependent upon how many entries exist in the database.  In this form people will enter a meter amount and then a total amount (It's a utility database).  What I want to happen is the total amount to be added to a running Total Amount for the page.  I know this has to be a javascript function but I don't know how to go about doing it.  I've included some of the code...

<form action="Enter.asp?Search=1" method="post" name="Step2">
<input type="hidden" value="<%= Property %>" name="Property">
<table width="90%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">
      <tr>
      <td width="35%" valign="top" align="left" class="newstext"><% IF icount = 0 then %><b><%= objRS("Service Address") %></b><br><%= objRS2("Account Number") %><% Else %>&nbsp;<% End IF %></td>
      <td width="15%" align="center" class="normal"><%= objRS2("Meter Number") %></td>
      <td width="10%" align="center" class="normal">Gas</td>
      <td width="20%" align="center" class="normal"><input type="text" class="normal" name="Used<%= var %>" size="4" maxlength="4"></td>
      <td width="20%" align="center" class="normal">$<input type="text" class="normal" name="Total<%= var %>" size="6" maxlength="6"></td>
       </tr>
<%
icount = icount + 1
objRS2.MoveNext
Wend
icount = 0
var = var + 1
%>
</tr>
      <tr>
      <td width="100%" colspan="5" class="normal" align="center"><hr></td>
      </tr>
<%
objRS.MoveNext
Wend
%>

'  Lots more here ... blah blah blah

      <tr>
      <td width="15%" colspan="4" align="center" class="newstext"><b><%= Property %> Grand Total:</b></td>
      <td width="15%" align="center" class="newstext">$<input type="text" name="GrandTotal" class="normaltxt" size="5" maxlength="5" readonly></td>
      </tr>
</table>

How to I get the Grand Total column to add dynamically with each Total entry?

Online example: http://www.arantius.com/ee/Q_21216279.html

For this example, you must apply the ID attribute to all your total fields, from total1, total2, so on, and the ID of grandtotal to where you want the answer to go.  Then assign the onkeyup events to each of the total fields.

<html>
<head>
<script>
function updateTotal() {
      var el=true, total=0;
      for(var i=1; true; i++) {
            el=document.getElementById("total"+i);
            if (!el) break;
            total+=(el.value*1);
      }
      var tot=document.getElementById("grandtotal");
      tot.value=total;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>

<input id="total1" onkeyup="javascript:updateTotal();"><br>
<input id="total2" onkeyup="javascript:updateTotal();"><br>
<input id="total3" onkeyup="javascript:updateTotal();"><br>

<input id="grandtotal" readonly="readonly">

</body>
</html>
