## QlikView - Average of different columns

I am a complete newbie on QlikView, and have managed to figure out bits and pieces, but this is leaving me stumped.

In Excel I find it easy to calculate the average of 3 different columns, but how to create a graph from these averages in Qlikview is eluding me. I have managed to get the graph to show the overall average of the three columns, but I want it to show these averages by supplier along the x axis. I have tried simply adding 'Supplier' as a dimension, but it then says "No data to show". I've tried browsing previous forum threads, but nothing seems to answer my specific question.

I've attached a screenshot of my dashboard - the bottom left graph is the one I'm trying to create, the top right table shows the data I'm working from.

Any help will be very greatly appreciated!

May be try this:

RangeAvg(Month1Perf, Month2Perf, Month3Perf)

What is the expression you are using?

## Re: QlikView - Average of different columns

In order to get the average of all 3 I'm just using the below, but it's obviously completely wrong. I've been fine with averages in the past, as they've only been for a single column, therefore, avg(column) has always worked fine

avg(Month1Perf)&(Month2Perf)&(Month3Perf)

That works! Thanks I knew it would be something simple I was missing.

Hi

you can find the average by using

(Column(1)+Column(2)+Column(3))/3
