I've got a stored procedure which is working well, it's purpose is to check whether or not a user has enabled or disabled certain parts of a dashboard.  The fields are all tinyint using 1/0 and I'd like to be able to add up those fields to give me a total number of active items.  Here's what I've got so far:

SELECT userShowProcess, userShowLEN, userShowContractExp, userShowWO, userShowTSO, userShowOcc, userShowRev, userShowDelinq, userShowExp
FROM tblUsers
WHERE userID = @UserID;

I'd like to get another field at the end (something like profileOptionsCount) that would add up all the fields that are set to "1" like so:
userShowProcess   userShowLEN   userShowWO   userShowTSO   userShowOcc   userShowRev   userShowDelinq   userShowExp   profileOptionsCount
---------------   -----------   ----------   -----------   -----------   -----------   --------------   -----------   -------------------
1		  0		1            1             1             0             0                0	      4

By the way you skipped userShowContractExp, was that intentional, otherwise:

SELECT      userShowProcess,
      userShowLEN,
      userShowContractExp,
      userShowWO,
      userShowTSO,
      userShowOcc,
      userShowRev,
      userShowDelinq,
      userShowExp,
      userShowProcess + userShowLEN + userShowContractExp + userShowWO + userShowTSO +
      userShowOcc + userShowRev + userShowDelinq + userShowExp profileOptionsCount
FROM      tblUsers
WHERE      userID = @UserID;
