In this paper we consider an LL integral transformation G of the form F(x)=0G(x,y)f(y)dy, where G(x,y) is defined on D={(x,y):x0,y0} and f(y) is defined on [0,). The following results are proved: For an LL integral transformation G to be norm-preserving, 0|G*(x,t)|dx=1 for almost all t0 is only a necessary condition, where G*(x,t)=limh0inf1htt+hG(x,y)dy for each x0. For certain G's. 0|G*(x,t)|dx=1 for almost all t0 is a necessary and sufficient condition for preserving the norm of certain f ϵ L. In this paper the analogous result for sum-preserving LL integral transformation G is proved.
