Dax measure for Grand total

JustNewbie_0-1688459311703.png

Hi, I have 2 connected tables, how do I use Dax measures to perform the calculations. I intend to calculate the avg days of each activities and total up  & give me final numbers. The DAX need to calculate average of each activities and finally total up all activities. I need to measure 4 activities took up how many days to complete.

Hi,

 

You will need to use AVERAGEX to get the average of each column across their respective tables and then sum up each result.
It would look something like this:


Sum Avg Activities =
VAR Avg_Days_To_assigne = AVERAGEX('Table 1',SUM('Tabl 1'[Days to assigne])
VAR Avg_Days_to_pack = AVERAGEX('Table 1',SUM('Tabl 1'[Days to pack])
VAR Avg_Days_To_ship = AVERAGEX('Table 2',SUM('Tabl 2'[Days to ship])
VAR Avg_Days_To_receive = AVERAGEX('Table 2',SUM('Tabl 2'[Days to receive])
RETURN
Avg_Days_To_assigne + Avg_Days_to_pack + Avg_Days_To_ship + Avg_Days_To_receive

Hi,

 

I would need some more information to know exactly what issue you are facing. Example data would be prefered.

Note that the AVERAGEX formula I provided will run through each row in the table if your Item column is a subset of these (a categoria) displayed just in a Matrix or Table then you need to change the formula like shown bellow:
VAR Avg_Days_To_assigne = AVERAGEX(VALUES('Table X'[Item Column]),CALCULATE(SUM('Tabl 1'[Days to assigned]))

Thanks, i got your idea. I have solved the issue.

Thanks for your reply.... I tried to applied your solution to my real dataset. But i realised it gives me wrong results.. Not sure what went wrong? For example, If I total up all the average activities, it should give me 18 days.
