## Average of a count entries without group by

Hello. I have a some columns in my file that correspond to customer's orders: order date, payment date, Number of order, product typology, etc. The behavior of the file is: when some customer order more than 1 item, it creates two lines for the same order, for example:

 Num order Orderdate Sku article typology Count of Num articles Mono or multi orders 123456 10/12/2019 65433 532 2 Multi 123456 10/12/2019 65990 597 2 Multi 23456 10/12/2019 65990 597 1 Mono

The 2 last columns were calculations done by me: if a order number appears more than 1 time, it is an order that have more than 1 article.

Now I want to know the average of article's per multi orders but I don't want to do a group by (by Number of order) to perform this. The way I know is to perform a query that groups by Num of order (all lines of the same order are consolidated in only one) and then do the average.

How to do?

I tried "average_num_articles:=CALCULATE(AVERAGE(Table[Count of Num articles]);FILTER(Table;VALUES(Table[NumOrder])))" without success.

Thank you.

@Anonymous  Let me know if I wasn't able to understand your request:

``````Average of Articles =
VAR CurrentOrder = jmsm[Num order]
VAR MultiOrders =
FILTER (
jmsm,
jmsm[Mono or Multi Orders] = "Multi"
&& jmsm[Num order] = CurrentOrder
)
VAR Result =
AVERAGEX ( MultiOrders, jmsm[article typology] )
RETURN
Result
``````

@AntrikshSharma The average is on "count of num of articles", not articles typology.

It didn't work when I tried in a cell (dax formula): The OrderNum cannot be determinated. "This happens when a measure formula refers to a columns that contains many values ..."

I think is related to the first VAR (currentorder). When I tried to write Table[NumOrder] it didn't recognize it (only columns with calculations).

@Anonymous Is this what you want?

Yes, but in a measure not in a column because the average is by OrderNumber and not by each line of each order number.

@Anonymous Most of the code is same for Measure:

``````Measure =
VAR CurrentOrder = SELECTEDVALUE ( jmsm[Num order] )
VAR MultiOrders =
FILTER (
ALL ( jmsm ),
jmsm[Mono or Multi Orders] = "Multi"
&& jmsm[Num order] = CurrentOrder
)
VAR Result =
AVERAGEX ( MultiOrders, jmsm[Count of num of articles] )
RETURN
Result``````
