Hi, first post :)

I have an interesting project. I have a basic form passing answers
into mysql. I have a db with multiple tables, each table contains
several fields, but I am only concerned with 16 of these fields
which contain the answers "A" "B" "C" "D" etc., not all fields 
contain the same number of answers (ie; some answers have A-G, 
some only have A-D to choose from). My problem is extracting the 
number of people that chose "A" for answer1, "B" for answer1, etc.

Here is the layout:

acct2301 (table)
answer1-answer16 are my fields

username        answer1 answer2 answer3 answer4 answer16
joeblow A         F         A           E         C
someguy A         E         B         B   C
joeuser B         A         E         A   D
someone D         C         D         A   A

I have everything completed as far as getting the answers into the 
tables,I just can't figure out the best way to extract the answers 
and determine how many chose a given answer for each question.

I have seen some examples using count(*), and (sum) I am thinking 
I need to first determine how many A's, B's etc. then perform a 
count on the result of that, but that is as far as I have been able
to get.

Ideally a percentage function would be nice (20% chose A for Answer1, 

Thanks for any help, I sure need it!
