## Average between columns

Hello all

I need a help that maybe is simple but I have already watched several videos and forus and it does not work for me. I need to create a column that calculates the average of the 5 colunmas (Y1, Y2; Y3; Y4 and Y5) but only if they are non-zero.

How do I do that? or is it better to create measures than to create columns? The data comes as shown in the example and this new data I have I will use quite even then create new measures.

hello

``````calculation column =

var _Y1 = if([Y1]=0,blank(),[Y1])

var _Y2 = if([Y2]=0,blank(),[Y2])
var _Y3 = if([Y3]=0,blank(),[Y3])
var _Y4 = if([Y4]=0,blank(),[Y4])

var _Y5 = if([Y5]=0,blank(),[Y5])

var _result = (_Y1+_Y2+_Y3+_Y4+_Y5)/(_Y1/_Y1+_Y2/_Y2+_Y3/_Y3+_Y4/_Y4+_Y5/_Y5)
return _result``````

Thank you very much for your help and I am glad that we can find the solutions by these means 🙂 ... then I also found a very similar one that worked:

Average =
where _Numerador = [Y1] + [Y2] + [Y3] + [Y4] + [Y5]
WHERE _1 = if (ISBLANK([Y1])||[Y1]=0, 0, 1)
WHERE _2 = if (ISBLANK([Y2])||[Y2]=0, 0, 1)
WHERE _3 = if (ISBLANK([Y3])||[Y3]=0, 0, 1)
where _4 = If (ISBLANK([Y4])||[Y4]=0, 0, 1)
where _5 = IF (ISBLANK([Y5])||[Y5]=0, 0, 1)
return
_1+_2+_3+_4+_5
return
