Average Formula

How can I build a DAX formula that will return the average of the highlighted column. I'm trying to do this to get the average by year & quarter:

Re: Average Formula

Can you please try this

 

: AverageX(AllExcept(Table,Year,Quarter),(positivefeedback/Allgroups*100))

 

* In Place of Table keep your table name.

 

Thanks,

Aditya

@adityakommu I've tried doing it this way but for whatever reason it comes out to 100% for every month:

@adityakommu Sure:

And if it makes a difference, I unpivoted my original table to look like this:

So everything in the last 2 columns originally had their own column. I don't know if the unpivot throws this kind of formula off. So positive feedback would be everything that consists of a positive sounding value (strongly agree, agree, happy, very happy).

Re: Average Formula

I think this should work :

 

avg = CALCULATE(AVERAGEx(zero,Zero[Column1]/Zero[Column2]) ,ALLEXCEPT(Zero,Zero[Quarter],Zero[Year]))

 

Note : Zero is table name I have created

Re: Average Formula

That's weird, It is working at my end: Can you please write 2 measure separately 

 

Measure 1 : AVERAGEx(zero,Zero[Column1]/Zero[Column2]) 

Measure 2:= CALCULATE(AVERAGEx(zero,Zero[Column1]/Zero[Column2]) ,ALLEXCEPT(Zero,Zero[Quarter],Zero[Year]))

 

and paste your entire column list here...

Both measures are in the middle. Could this be happening because of the way my table is setup through the unpivot? If AVERAGEX function calculates everything on a row basis, I think that may be why it's returning 100% on each row... But I'm not sure.

Re: Average Formula

I do think Unpivot is causing an issue,I am surprised to what average is not calculating row-wise.

 

IF we fix that everything else will be done
