Hi,

it seems I have some problems reading your table. The last column is what you want to achieve?

In your sample data,  I would expect to see the same value for any given combination of Period and Country, if you want to group by these 2 dimensions.

It looks to me that your last column is an average grouped by 3 dimensions (Period, Country and Type or Products).

What is the field / value you want to average? If you could post some lines of raw data, this might help in finding a solution for you.

edit:

If you just want to give it a try:

=avg(total<Period, Country> Value)

Hi swuehl, the last column is the normal average result. So it sum 100%, but i need the result of previous column: Avg (Period/Country) which sum 100% by each Period & Country.

It looks more like a percentage share of products number than an average value to me?

If this is what you want, I think the last column is calculated like

= sum(Products) / sum(total Products) *100

and the second last column like

= sum(Products) / sum(total<Period, Country> Products) * 100

in a table chart with Period, Country and Type as dimensions - wait that won't explain your two feb-11 / Spain / D lines, how do you separate these two lines? There seems to be some dimension missing here.

Thanks swuehl, your solution works fine !!

I'm sorry, the two feb-11 / Spain / D lines was a mistake when typing, one line would be C.
