Returns the summation of all the values in expList.


@SUM (expList)
Parameter Description


Comma-delimited list of member specifications, variable names, or numeric expressions, all of which provide numeric values.


In the Sample Basic database:

FIX("Total Expenses")

Since the calculation script fixes on Total Expenses, the value for Total Expenses->West is equal to the sum of the value for East and the values for the states making up the West. For Sales, West and East are simply the sum of the states making up each region (that is, Sales->West is not equal to the sum of East and West). This example produces the following report:

                  Product    Qtr1    Actual
                   Sales    Total Expenses
