# Enumerable.Sum<TSource> Method (IEnumerable<TSource>, Func<TSource, Nullable<Decimal>>)

.NET Framework (current version)

Note

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Computes the sum of the sequence of nullable Decimal values that are obtained by invoking a transform function on each element of the input sequence.

Namespace:   System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

## Syntax

```public static Nullable<decimal> Sum<TSource>(
this IEnumerable<TSource> source,
Func<TSource, Nullable<decimal>> selector
)
```

#### Parameters

source
Type:

A sequence of values that are used to calculate a sum.

selector
Type: System.Func<TSource, Nullable<Decimal>>

A transform function to apply to each element.

#### Return Value

Type:

The sum of the projected values.

#### Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

## Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source or selector is null.

OverflowException

The sum is larger than MaxValue.

## Remarks

This method returns zero if source contains no elements.

The result does not included values that are null.

You can apply this method to a sequence of arbitrary values if you provide a function, selector, that projects the members of source into a numeric type, specifically Nullable<Decimal> in C# or Nullable(Of Decimal) in Visual Basic.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Sum() clause translates to an invocation of Sum.

## Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use Sum<TSource>(IEnumerable<TSource>, Func<TSource, Double>) to sum the projected values of a sequence.

Note

This code example uses an overload of this overloaded method that is different from the specific overload that this topic describes. To extend the example to this topic, change the body of the selector function.

```class Package
{
public string Company { get; set; }
public double Weight { get; set; }
}

public static void SumEx1()
{
List<Package> packages =
new List<Package>
{ new Package { Company = "Coho Vineyard", Weight = 25.2 },
new Package { Company = "Lucerne Publishing", Weight = 18.7 },
new Package { Company = "Wingtip Toys", Weight = 6.0 },
new Package { Company = "Adventure Works", Weight = 33.8 } };

double totalWeight = packages.Sum(pkg => pkg.Weight);

Console.WriteLine("The total weight of the packages is: {0}", totalWeight);
}

/*
This code produces the following output:

The total weight of the packages is: 83.7
*/

```
