Re: Average shows wrong totals



There may be something wrong with your average measure. You need to post some sample data and your DAX formula to figure out the problem.

Re: Average shows wrong totals

Hello guys,


I have a similar problem with my total column average. I was trying to insert a screenshot from Snipping tool, but it doesn't seem to be working...


I have the following values of Data Type: Decimal Number; Format: Percentage; Default Summarization: Average;


Count    Value   Week

1            43%     10/04/2015

1            43%     11/01/2015

1            43%     11/15/2015

1            43%     11/22/2015

1            43%     12/06/2015

2            40%     12/13/2015


I expect the total average for these weeks (i.e. 2015 Q4) to be 42.14%. However, my Power BI matrix table shows 40%.


How can I fix this? There are no 0 values in the datasource (seemed to be a problem for other people with similar problem). This is also not a result of incomplete data for Q4 because in that case the average shown by Power BI would be 19.62%. Can it be related to the fact that the Week is coming from a separate Date table I created myself rather than from the main datasource? 


Your help and insigts are much appreciated!
