Average a column by another column

I am looking to create a column that calculates the average number of shipments per load. What DAX logic can i use to create this column? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

HI @czjames,

So you mean to aggregate a column based on another column category? If that is the case, you can take a look at the following formula if it meets your requirement.

New Column =
CALCULATE (
    AVERAGE ( Table[Column1] ),
    FILTER ( Table, [Column2] = EARLIER ( Table[Column2] ) )
)

Hey @czjames ,

 

that should be possible with DAX.

Do you need it as a calculated column or as a measure?

 

If you provide some sample tables or a Power BI file I can try to solve that. The solution depends a lot on the relationships and your data.

 

If you need any help please let me know.
If I answered your question I would be happy if you could mark my post as a solution ✔️ and give it a thumbs up 👍
 
Best regards
Denis
