Summing Field Contents

I’m just getting back into FileMaker programming with FMA 13 and I’m a bit rusty.


I have the responses to several questions that were asked in a survey.


For simplicity, let’s say the answers to each question were “Yes”, “No” and “Maybe”.


Is there a way to Sum the number of each possible answer to each question across the entire database?


i.e. The answers to Question 1 were: “Yes” = 25, “No” = 50, “Maybe” = 12


I’m racking my brain, but the answer isn’t jumping out at me.


Hope you can help!
