Summarizing data

I have several line files for different size water lines. How can I calculate the total
distance of each water line and the total of all of them?

Mapping Center Answer:

The Summary Statistics tool where:

1. Your data’s length field with the SUM_FIELD statistics type.
2. The option Case field should be set to the field that identifies the size of the water line.

Will give you exactly what you’re asking for.
