The op:sum function differs from the op:add function in that it operates on operates on a group of rows, rather than multiple column values in a row.

$outCol The name to be used for the aggregated column.
$inCol The column with the values to add.
$options The options can take a values key with a distinct value to average the distinct values of the column.
