## set average of group as a variable

groupvalue
A14
A23
A53
B4
B63
B13
B7

When loading the data, I want to set variables of each group(A and B)

SET vAverageA = (average value of group A)//(14+23+53)/3

SET vAverageB = (average value of group B)//(4+63+13+7)/4

Does anybody know how to do this?

## Re: set average of group as a variable

May be this:

Table:

LOAD * Inline [

group, value

A, 14

A, 23

A, 53

B, 4

B, 63

B, 13

B, 7

];

AggrTable:

LOAD Avg(value) as Avg,

group

Resident Table

Group By group

Order By group;

For i = 1 to FieldValueCount('group')

vField = FieldValue('group', \$(i));

TempTable:

NoConcatenate

LOAD Avg

Resident AggrTable

Where group = '\$(vField)';

LET vAverage\$(vField) = Peek('Avg');

DROP Table TempTable;

NEXT i

Drop Table AggrTable;
