Dax Measure to get the average of a column at total level

Hi everybody, Im trying to do a dax measure that has to calculate the total average of the values of the column cells, this measure has to work with any attributes and/or level in the pivot table (excel). The thing is I have correct values only at store level, but no for the other attributes in my model.

To better describe my problem, I attached a sample power BI file.

thanks a lot for your help!

@ctrip77 , hello


try this measure:

average Sales_per_store_v1 = 
        [Total Sales],


Is it of any help?

Thans for your reply @Sergiy !

Your metric works perfect, but only when in the table you put the Machine_Name attribute.

If I change Machine_name to Cat_1 then my average is wrong again.

That's just the problem that I can not solve!, I just want a metric that works for any attribute in the model, it should always show the average of the values displayed in the column (in the grand total row)

have any workaround for this?
