I would like to take an integer field and compare the values (record by record) to see if the SUM OF THE INTEGER FIELDS are the same and make sure the integers in the field match. Here is an example


Same digits and if u add the digits up they all equal 7.
What is the best way to achieve this analysis

Those aren't integers, they're strings. This will work for strings of length 3, you'll have to adapt it if you have string of length > 3
DECLARE @Table Table (Col1 Char(3))
VALUES ('520'),('502'),('205'),('052')

select col1,CONVERT(int,Col1)/100 + CONVERT(int,Col1)/10 % 10 + CONVERT(int,Col1) % 10
from @table

Everyday I learn something that somebody else already knew
