In this article, we would like to show you how to use SQL SUM() function in Node.js.

Note: at the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

const mysql = require('mysql');

const connection = mysql.createConnection({        // gets connection with database
    host: 'localhost', // '127.0.0.1'
    user: 'root',
    password: 'password',
    database: 'my_database',
});

connection.connect((error) => {
    if (error) throw error;
    const query = 'SELECT SUM(`salary`) FROM `users`';

    connection.query(query, (error, result) => {   // sends queries
        connection.end();                          // closes connection
        if (error) throw error;
        console.log(result);
    });
});
users table
users table

Output: 

[ { 'SUM(`salary`)': 29050 } ]

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE `users` (
	`id` INT(10) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
	`name` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	`surname` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	`department_id` INT(10) UNSIGNED,
    `salary` DECIMAL(15,2) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
);

insert_data.sql file:

INSERT INTO `users`
	( `name`, `surname`, `department_id`, `salary`)
VALUES
	('John', 'Stewart', 1, '3512.00'),
	('Chris', 'Brown', 2, '1344.00'),
	('Kate', 'Lewis', 3, '6574.00'),
	('Ailisa', 'Gomez', NULL, '6500.00'),
	('Gwendolyn', 'James', 2, '4200.00'),
	('Simon', 'Collins', 4, '3320.00'),
	('Taylor', 'Martin', 2, '1500.00'),
	('Andrew', 'Thompson', NULL, '2100.00');
