## Divide Row Value with a measure

Hi everyone,

I have a survey which can be completed by several people from the same company. I want the average score per category and this is done by taking the value in the score column and dividing it by the number of people who filled out the survey from the company.

However, the company participant count is a measure which has been calculated using the following:

COUNTROWS(FILTER('Survey Responses','Survey Responses'[Company Name] IN VALUES('Section_Summary'[Company Name])))

as number of people from a particular company is located in a different table.

I have the following table,

 Company Score Category Company Participant Count ABC 129 Cat1 3 ABC 103 Cat2 3 XYZ 36 Cat1 1 XYZ 26 Cat2 1

Ideally I want to add another column (measure or calculated column otherwise) that takes the value in the score column and divides it by the value calculated using the company participant count measure?

Thank you in advance!

Here is a measure expression you can try

Avg for Company and Category =
CALCULATE (
AVERAGE ( Table[Score] ),
ALLEXCEPT (
Table,
Table[Company],
Table[Category]
)
)

Hey, so I used the measure you gave to recreate my static score column as a measure which I then divided by the measure for my participant count column and this has worked! I hope this was the intended use - Thank You!

If its not too much bother can you explain why the measure you provided calculates a row wise average for the score across company and category? I struggle a lot with PBI contexts at the minute 😕

Sure.  The ALLEXCEPT function removes all the filters from the columns of the specified table except the the ones you list.  The table visual provides filters on Category and Company because you added those columns to the visual, and the measure removes filters from any other columns you've included (e.g., Score, if not aggregated).
