Syntax:

RangeSum(first_expr[, Expression])

Return data type: numeric

The arguments of this function may contain inter-record functions which in themselves return a list of values.

ArgumentDescription

ExpressionOptional expressions or fields containing the range of data to be measured.

Limitations:

The RangeSumfunction treats all non-numeric values as 0, unlike the + operator.

Examples and results:

ExamplesResults
RangeSum (1,2,4)

Returns 7

RangeSum (5,'abc')Returns 5
RangeSum (null( ))

Returns 0

Add the example script to your app and run it. Then add, at least, the fields listed in the results column to a sheet in your app to see the result.

RangeTab3:

LOAD recno() as RangeID, Rangesum(Field1,Field2,Field3) as MyRangeSum INLINE [

Field1, Field2, Field3

10,5,6

2,3,7

8,2,8

18,11,9

5,5,9

9,4,2

];
