Average in stacked bar chart

Hi

 

I have a clustered column chart which shows a quantity of different items in the stack against a month where the month is filtered with a slicer. I have added an average line on the 'add further analyses panel'. This gives the correct answer of 20. However I would prefer it to be a stacked column chart with an average line. If I do that and add a constant line set to "sumamarization" equal to "average" the quantity is gives the incorrect number of 3.8. 

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Matthew

Hi, @mlm198 

@amitchandak , thanks for your concern about this case. I tried to create a sample data as follows:

I created a line and stacked column chart visual as shown in the following image:

vjianpengmsft_1-1711674556624.png

I used the following DAX to find the average of Qty:

CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( tblQty[Qty] ), ALL ( 'tblQty' ) )

 The results are shown in the image below:

I've provided the PBIX file used this time below.

@mlm198 , Use a measure in constant line

 

Averagex(Values(Table[X Axis Column]), [measure])

 

or

 

Averagex(Summarize(Table, Table[X Axis Column], Table[Legend COlumn], "_1", [measure]), [_1])

Thanks for your help.

Sorry I need further help - very much new to Power BI.

So I have entered the following:

ave = averagex(VALUES(tblQtyDate[Date].[Month],tblQty[Qty]))

So the X-axis is tblQtyDate[Date].[Month]

Y axis is tblQtyShipped[Qty Shipped]

What am I doing wrong?

Best Wishes
