Average aggregates discard 0 values

Hi, 

I´m having issue with the aggregated value of average.

the average value is calculated with all the underlying rows taken into account. I want it to discard 0 values.

 

underlying table:

source table

 

my matrix:

I want this to show (2+6+5,5)/3 = 4,5   not 4,2 as this is currently calculating (0+3+4+6+8)/5 = 4,2

 

I want also this to discard the 0 value when I filter these valuse and display total average of 3:

 

any clever DAX suggestions? 🙂

 

Note: I´m not using any measures in this example and I select this option to aggregate:

Try creating the below measure: 

 

Average = AVERAGEX(FILTER(Table1,Table1[Value] <>0),Table1[Value])

Re: Average aggregates discard 0 values

Hi @solvisig

How about adding a slicer on Value to eliminate the zeros?

That does not work for my scenario as I might have another value in the table that does not have 0 and I want to display.

@solvisig

Then create a measure. Something simple like:

CALCULATE(AVERAGE(Table[Value]), Table[Value] <>0)

Re: Average aggregates discard 0 values

@Omega, Thanks, This is exactly what I was looking for 🙂

 

I already created this DAX... but I had a feeling that there was some function for this:

MyAvg = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Value])/COUNTROWS(Table1);FILTER(Table1;Table1[Value] <> 0))
