How to read tabular data?

Hello,


I have a log file which contains data in tabular format(3 columns(total, posted, rejected) and 2 rows(close, total)) as below.

Code:
 
          TOTAL   POSTED  REJECTED
 CLOSE       3         3         0
 TOTAL       3         3         0

I have to search for all Total column/Total row values (e.g. 3 here) in the file and sum all these values.

Can anyone please help me on this?


Thanks ,
Akash

Code:
awk ' /^TOTAL/ {rowtotal= $1 + $2 + $3}
        { coltotal+=$1}
       END {printf "column total=", coltotal," row total=", rwototal }'  inputfile > outputfile
