## bar chart with averages per day of week

Hi, I am trying to build a bar chart with average sales per day of the week for the chosen period, but my formula returns Sales (not Average sales). What is wrong? Thank you!

avg(

aggr( Sum(Sales), [DayOfWeek_Field] )

)

May be like this

Avg(Aggr(Sum(Sales), DayField))

## Re: bar chart with averages per day of week

maybe, as dimension, put DayOfWeek_Field and as a measure:Avg(Sales)?

Are you doing this in a text box object or a table?

Average sales by day of week:

If i choose March, it should return Sum(<Monday> Sales)/count(<Monday> DaysOfWeek) and put it in the first Bar.

BTW, this works form me - I just wanted to apply a nicer solution.

Solved.

I think I got the logic.

I tried to split by DayOfWeek in the formula but as long as it is already done by setting a Dimension, the [Date] field in the formula will suffice.

Thank you!
