How do I sum two columns? I have a column named TOTALHOURSWORKED and a column named TOTALHOURSWORKEDOT. I tried to sum them like:
select sum(totalhoursworked, totalhoursworkedot) as GrandTotal

But that that didn't work because SUM only likes one argument.

Any suggestions?

select sum(totalhoursworked + totalhoursworkedot) as GrandTotal
