I've never done anything quite like this and I'm having a major mental block, so any help appreciated. I have a table with a bunch of columns. Each column either has a 1 for a yes, 2 for a no, or 3 for NA. I need to count all the ones in the row where iAsmtID=xx and I need to count all the twos where iAsmtID=xx. Then I'll have to divide these later but for now I just need to be able to find out how many of each there are in a certain row. Thanks.

Well  you could either "longhand" the formula, or  you might consider using the UNPIVOT clause to normalize you data, and then use something like SUM(case answer when 1 then 1 else 0 end)
In other words  use UNPIVOT to turn your one row, many repeating columns into many shorter rows with no repeating columns.
Without some specific as to your table structure  I can't give you any specifics, but Books Online has some decent examples.
 Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part...unless you're my manager...or a director and above...or a really loudspoken enduser..All right  what was my emergency again?

Sorry for the long code but its shorter than me trying to describe it. I am getting an error saying incorrect syntax near ",". The only comma in the string is highlighted below. What am I doing wrong?

Here's an UNPIVT example:
select iasmtID, sum(case when answer=1 then 1 else 0 end) as countOfOnes, sum(case when answer=2 then 1 else 0 end) as countOfTwos from ( select iasmtid,question,answer from (select iasmtID,q1,q2,q3,q4,q5, q6,q7,q8,q9,q10,q11,q12, q13,q14,q15,q16,q17,q18,q19,q20 from itcc_test) t UNPIVOT (ANSWER for Question in ([q1],[q2],[q3],[q4],[q5], [q6],[q7],[q8],[q9],[q10], [q11],[q12],[q13],[q14],[q15], [q16],[q17],[q18],[q19],[q20]) ) unpvt ) as renormalizedTable WHERE iasmtID=3 group by iasmtID
