Average of measures (maybe complex)

Hello,

Please help if all possible.
I want to get the average of 6 different measures. If one of the 6 measure is blank, then it should divide by 5. If 2 of 6 measures is blank, then it should divide by 4, etc. I only want the average of the measures that is nonblank. 

 

In the snippet below: i need it to take the average of 4 since 2 are blank.

Put the measures into a list and use AVERAGEX.

AVERAGEX ( { [ADF], [CR], [London], [Manual], [Pcard], [SNOW] }, [Value] )

Note: Technically, using { ... } creates a single-column table with the default column name "Value".

Thank you for your response @AlexisOlson . Your measure did not seem to work but i figured it out below measure. thanks again.

Average_Productivity =
VAR MeasureList = {
    [TOTAL_ADF_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_CR_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_Manual_Entries_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_SNOW_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_LondonTax_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_Pcards_PRODUCTIVITY]
}
VAR NonBlankValues =
    SUMX (
        MeasureList,
        IF (
            NOT ( ISBLANK ( [Value] ) ),
            [Value],
            BLANK ()
        )
    )
VAR NonBlankCount =
    COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( MeasureList, NOT ( ISBLANK ( [Value] ) ) ) )
RETURN
    IF (
        NonBlankCount > 0,
        DIVIDE ( NonBlankValues, NonBlankCount ),
        BLANK ()
    )

Hmm. I wonder why it's not working for you. Does this version work?

Average_Productivity =
VAR MeasureList = {
    [TOTAL_ADF_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_CR_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_Manual_Entries_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_SNOW_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_LondonTax_PRODUCTIVITY],
    [TOTAL_Pcards_PRODUCTIVITY]
}
VAR NonBlankValues =
    FILTER ( MeasureList, NOT ( ISBLANK ( [Value] ) ) )
RETURN
    AVERAGEX ( NonBlankValues, [Value] )
