I am not sure how to make a query to take a field called word from tblwords and to add up the combined ascii code numbers.

so if the string in field word is:
'My word'
then the field AsciiEncode is populated with 674

i did find this on the ms website but not sure how to amalgamate that process into a query.

SET TEXTSIZE 0;  
SET NOCOUNT ON;  
-- Create the variables for the current character string position   
-- and for the character string.  
DECLARE @position int, @string char(15);  
-- Initialize the variables.  
SET @position = 1;  
SET @string = 'Du monde entier';  
WHILE @position <= DATALENGTH(@string)  
   BEGIN  
   SELECT ASCII(SUBSTRING(@string, @position, 1)),  
      CHAR(ASCII(SUBSTRING(@string, @position, 1)))  
    SET @position = @position + 1  
   END;  
SET NOCOUNT OFF;  
GO  
I am just experimenting with an idea, i may at some stage need to store those codes in a field 77-121-32-119-111-114-100 but i am not sure yet.
