SQL Multiple field record sum.

I am writing a transact SQL query on a table that has multiple fields for employee withholdings(12 fields to be exact) I am looking for a way to aggregate those fields into one SUM on a per record(employee) basis.

Are you trying to sum all 12 fields for each employee?

select PrimaryKey, sum(field1 + field2 + field3 + ...)
from employeetable
group by PrimaryKey

If there's just 1 field that needs to be SUMed, but you need all the fields:

select PrimaryKey, field1, field2, ..., sum(addfield)
from employeetable
group by PrimaryKey, field1, field2, ...
