## Set analysis expression to calculate the average

Hello,

I was wondering if I could get some help please.

I am attempting to use an expression to calculate the average total sales for the month in qlikview to put in my summary table.

The raw data displays multiple sales for each day. So I would need to first sum the sales for each business day and then calculate the average for total sales for each day of that month. I have attached an example of the raw data and the desired result which can be achieved in excel. I would like to identify a simple expression to perform this calculation so that I can add it to my pivot summary table in qlikview.

Thanks,

Esther

May be this

Avg(Aggr(Sum(Deposits), Month, Date))

## Re: Set analysis expression to calculate the average

 I am attempting to use an expression to calculate the average total sales for the month in qlikview to put in my summary table.

Avg({<Month = {\$(=Max(Month))}>} TOTAL [Sum of Deposits])

OR

Avg(TOTAL [Sum of Deposits])

Do you have a month field in your dashboard? May be it is called Month or MONTH?

The result in bold is the average total for the deposits.

## Re: Set analysis expression to calculate the average

Hello,

The formula works but I am unable to use it in my pivot summary table. Do you know why this could be?

The expression that i am using is this if(Plan='Average',Avg(Aggr(Sum(Deposits), Month, Date)))

Thanks
