Abstract: Given a field $ {\mathbf{F}}$ of subsets of a set $ U$ and a real-valued function $ T$ defined on a set $ S$ of functions from $ {\mathbf{F}}$ into $ \exp ({\mathbf{R}})$ with bounded range unions, a necessary and sufficient condition is given in order that there be a bounded finitely additive function $ \theta $ from $ {\mathbf{F}}$ into $ {\mathbf{R}}$ such that if $ \alpha $ is in $ S$, then the integral $ \int_U {\alpha (I)\theta (I)} $, as a variational integral, i.e., a refinement-wise limit of appropriate sums over (finite) subdivisions, exists and is $ T(\alpha )$.
