Average of Time column

I have a few Time columns in MSSQL.

I'm hoping to display these with their AVERAGE in a table.

The actual times on the rows are correctly displayed, but no option to display a final total (AVERAGE).

Is this possible?

Currently I'm using Direct Query, but could easily switch to Import.

I can, if it makes it easier, store the times as seconds (Integer) in MSSQL instead of Time.

Re: Average of Time column

Hi @RGI,

 

It seems that you want to calculate the average of your time, you could have a good reference of this similar thread.

 

If you still need help, please share your data sample and your expected output, so that we can help further investigate on it?

Re: Average of Time column

My solution so far:

 

1) I changed the [Time] column in the database to [Int] (seconds).

2) I implemented a new measure as

 

Average Time to Empty Bin = TIME(INT(AVERAGE(Wave[Average Seconds to Empty Bin])/3600),INT(MOD(AVERAGE(Wave[Average Seconds to Empty Bin]),3600)/60),0)

 

This now shows the correct data in the column and a nice average in the total row.

 

However, as I've posted in this thread my slicers have stopped working.
