Default adding values from drop down menus

 have an html form with 14 drop down menus. Each with two answers of values of 0 and one value of 1.

0equals an incorrect answer. 1 equals a correct answer.

Therefore if the user answers all questions correctly and I add all the values together they get:

11111111111111

I can then work out the percentage of correct answers very easily.

Working out the % if a user gets 6 or 7 right is harder because there are literally hundreds of combinations of 1 and 0's.

Question is how do I work out how many correct answers the user has got as I cant add together variables.

Many Thanks

David

if that is indeed your output then:

dim values
values = 11111111111111
response.write len(cstr(trim(values)))

should do it.
