## Average by month

Hi, when calculating the monthly sales average, shouldn't it be calculated as total sales amount / number of days? why is powerBI calculating this way? 2 ACCEPTED SOLUTIONS  Responsive Resident

Hello,

By default, it will put the average sales amount of that month, if you want to use the diary monthly average, you will have to create a measure to sum the monthly sales, and then, divide it by the number of days.  Community Support

Hi @Anonymous ,

In addition, if you need to calculate the average by day, you can create measure using codes below .

`Average by day= DIVIDE(SUM([Sale Amount]),CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[Date]), FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table1), YEAR(Table1[Date]) =YEAR(MAX(Table1[Date]))&&MONTH(Table1[Date]) =MONTH(MAX(Table1[Date])))))`
