I have a choice column with choices as numbers in a list. I want to sum all the values in the column and display it, Is there any easy way of doing it?

  • Can you elaborate your question, please? Where would you want to store the sum of the values? One option in doing it is iterating the choice list and calculating the sum using CSOM and javascript. Commented Jul 6, 2015 at 6:48

As we don't get the sum option in the total section of modify list,we can do it by

  • Adding a number column and filling it using workflow with choice's number
  • Then for this number column we will be getting the sum option in the total section of modify list.

And it's done..
