Here's my sql statement so far

SELECT DISTINCT email, fromemail, viewnum from TABLE

I want an SQL statement that will add the numbers in the field viewnum.

Here's a sample output

email                     fromemail                 viewnum
john@here.com    bob@there.com      34
this@that.com       that@this.com        4

so basically i want the statement to give me 38.

Thanks, hope this was clear.

SELECT SUM(viewnum) from your table,,,

but this will give u an outpot only for the sum...so if u want to display sum in front of all the columns then this wont work...
so u will have to write 2 different queries and then combine the results
