Hi @Anonymous ,

I agree with vapid128 's reply. I think your average is calcualted based on years and sales measure. I think sales measure should be created by SUM() function.

My Sample:

Measure:

``Sales_ = SUM('Table'[Sales])``
``````Avg Sales =
CALCULATE(AVERAGEX(VALUES('Calendar'[Fiscal Year]),[Sales_]))``````

Result:

You see when I select 2022, I could only get average the same as the total in 2022. If you sum to calculate the sales, Power BI will take the same year as a whole.

What kind of result do you want? If you want to get 100 as average in 2022, please do not use sales measure.

Try this code.

``````Avg Sales =
AVERAGEX('Table','Table'[Sales])``````

Result is as below.

I am a little bit missunderstand,

your [sales] should be a sum of somthing

Let's say 2021 sales = 200, 2020 sales =100

If you select 2021 2020, [sales] = 300, [avg sales] = 150

if you select 2021, [sales] = 200,  [avg sales] =200

everytime when you select one year, it is the sales value.
