LINQ Query

Kevin Robinson
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I have the function which uses a 2 LINQ Queries to
1) get all the timesheet entries from a particilur date.
2) count the time for these entries.

Is there a way to make this 1 query?

Public Function GetTIMESHEETsMonday() As Double

        Dim Monday As Date = GetThisMondayDate()

        Dim totalTime = From t In Me.ObjectContext.TIMESHEETs
                            Where t.TaskDate = Monday
                            Select t

        If totalTime.Count <> 0 Then
            Return Aggregate T In totalTime Into Sum(T.TaskTime)
            Return 0
        End If

    End Function
