How can I merge successive row values (sum of the values) of the column Y according to a condition in column X?

Hope everyone is doing well!
My issue is: I have a two data columns (X and Y) and datime column (10 min interval). I want to merge the successive row values (sum) of column Y if the corresponding values of column X are 0. Otherwise, if one of the X row equals to 1, then no merge.
Knowing that X contains only 0 and 1 values.
Thank you for your collaboration.

You want to do grouped sums, where the groups are defined by consecutive zeros in X. Once you have the groups defined as a new variable in (what should be) a timetable, it's a simple matter of calling groupsummary. Usually defining groups like that involves tricks with cumsum and diff. But without a clear example of what you have and what you want, I won't hazard a guess.
