Syntax
SUM(some-list)
Arguments
- some-list (list of any numeric type)
AppSheet must be given enough context to determine what type of values some-list contains, that its contents are or will be numeric. To that end, some-list must be one of the following: a column value of type List that contains numeric values; a column list (e.g., Products[Price]) for a column of a numeric type; or a constructed list (e.g., with LIST()) of a numeric type. See Examples below.
Return Value
The computed sum of the values in some-list.
Examples
SUM(Classes[Seat Count])
: The sum of all values in the Seat Count column of the Classes table. Equivalent to SUM(SELECT(Classes[Seat Count], TRUE))
. See also SELECT().
SUM([Discounts])
: The sum of the items in the Discounts column value, where Discounts is of type List.
SUM(LIST(1, 2, 3))
returns Number: 6
Potential Problems
SUM(1, 2, 3)
: the arguments are not in list form. To fix, wrap them in LIST() to construct a list: SUM(LIST(1, 2, 3))
.
SUM(LIST())
: the constructed list has no items from which to determine type.
