I am interested to know if someone could help me figure out this problem for a class project.

I have done some analysis:


I would like to insert a new row that has the sum of each attribute field. I have tried using summary statistics tool but only get an error in the statistics field(s) parameter. I would also need to automate this process because in some cases there are 50 parks in the layer. 


                    Park 1_ sales     Park 1 _prob     Park 2_sales     Park 2_ prob     (made up numbers to show layout)

                         3                                   .2                    6                    .9

                         5                                   .6                    9                    .6

New row: Sum=  8                                   .8                    15                   1.5



    Then,  I have the park layer. I would like to create two new fields and populated them with the summary row information


               sales     prob

Park 1          8          .8

Park 2        15          1.5


Please let me know if you have any advice or if I need to be clearer.
