I am trying to figure out a way of trying to get a summary of 7 tables in order to add certain fields like a check amount, deductions etc.  Can this be possible?  Please let me know.  Thanks!

What do you mean by summary?  Please give slight examples of the data in the 7 tables and what you expect results to be or at least explain further.

A summary meaning I want certain fields to be added mathematically to get a sum of certain fields.  Basically it's a payroll system I am trying to add up the deductions, the the pay codes, taxes, etc.
Below is an example of a record:

Record-Type  Company  Empid   PLevel  Dept  Checkid  Paycode  DedCode  Hours Wage-amt Ded-amt
      1                 2525        1234     2392              12521      205                          8        20              10
       1                2525        1234     2392               12521                   TAX           8                           5

So basically there are 7 tables like this.  I would like to add things like the hours, the wage-amt, the ded-amt, etc.  There are more fields then what I showed but I just wanted to get a general idea.  What I am trying to do is take each paycheck pay period information table and combine them and add them all up to be a quarterly data table.

Does that make sense?
