I want to select a field in a table within ArcGIS Pro and get a quick look at the summation of all the values for all the selected records for that field.  For example, I have a field called "acres".  I want to select various features in the map, open the attribute table, show only the selected records, go to the "acres" field and see a summed up value for the acreage for those selected records.

Thanks for any help.

In Arcmap, you could right click the field header, go to "statistics" and see the "sum".  That functionality seems to be absent from Pro, but I'm hoping not.

I've been able to use the "summarize" gp tool but that creates a table every time I want to do this, which gets very cumbersome after a while.

Hello Royce,

Have you figured how to sum a field in pro?  I need to know because I can't stand creating unnecessary tables to do simple sums.

It's crazy this functionality doesn't exist yet. I hope they add it soon.

And if you have multiple fields to do...
