SUM is the most used aggregate function, you can also use AVG,MAX,MIN,COUNT.[^]

Thank a bunch for that, but why to use an aggregate function there? why not just a column name ? as it makes no difference using an aggregate function?

Please help.

Thank you

You have to specify what you want done on the data sum,count etc. so you have to write "sum" on the column name.
