Hi @Anjaly

You can change you table like this:

Then create a measure

``Measure = AVERAGE('Table'[Daily Average])``

Thank you for the response. It won't work since 'Daily Average' is a measure.

This is what I got:

Two ways I calculated. still did not correct answer

mgr_days_worked = CALCULATE([days worked1],ALL(Sheet1[unit head]))
mgr_days_worked = CALCULATE([days worked1],ALL(Sheet1[created by]))
I got correct answer for manager total

This is what I got:

mgr_total = CALCULATE([total1],ALL(Sheet1[unit head]))

actual result

Thank you so much for the solution. Total and days worked are measures . I got an error message  like'column table 'total' in query 1 can not be found. Any idea how to resolve it.

i got another error when slightly changed the formula

sum([Total])/sum([Days worked]). The sum function only accepts a column reference as the argumentnumber1

hi @Anjaly

you can plot a table visual with the unit head column and a measure like this:

``````AvgByHead =
DIVIDE(
SUM(TableName[Total]),
SUM(TableName[Days worked])
)``````

verified and it worked like this:
