what I need is curmonth1 + curmonth2 + curmonth3 + curmonth4  + curmonth5 + curwages all put in the field curwages.   expamle   1 + 1+ 1 + 1+1+ 1 = 6 in the filed curwages.

update yourtable
   set curwages = curwages + curmonth1 + curmonth2 + curmonth3 + curmonth4 + curmonth5

if at least 1 of the values could be null, but a COALESCE(curmonthN , 0) instead of simply curmonthN
