Awk array proble!!!Please help

I need help with a problem that I have not been able to figure out.
I have a file that is about 650K lines. Records are seperated by
blank lines, fields seperated by new lines. I was trying to make
a report that would add up 2 fields and associate them with a CP.

example output would be something like this:

CP31
----
TCS 10 54087
TCS 342 35173

TOTAL 59260


CP33
----
TCS 8 48790
TCS 286 33614

TOTAL 82404

In a nutshell I have to sum up the first 2 fields of EDM blocks and WRC
blocks and then associate them with what TCS & CP they belong to. I would like
to use AWK, and was trying to use arrays, but with no luck. Maybe multi-
dimensional, have not had any experiance with these. Any help would be very
much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I attached a txt doc of partial file. I hope this makes sense.

NAME
igawk - gawk with include files SYNOPSIS
igawk [ all gawk options ] -f program-file [ -- ] file ... igawk [ all gawk options ] [ -- ] program-text file ... DESCRIPTION
Igawk is a simple shell script that adds the ability to have ``include files'' to gawk(1). AWK programs for igawk are the same as for gawk, except that, in addition, you may have lines like @include getopt.awk in your program to include the file getopt.awk from either the current directory or one of the other directories in the search path. OPTIONS
See gawk(1) for a full description of the AWK language and the options that gawk supports. EXAMPLES
cat << EOF > test.awk @include getopt.awk BEGIN { while (getopt(ARGC, ARGV, "am:q") != -1) ... } EOF igawk -f test.awk SEE ALSO
