## Average thinking no data is zero

Hello all,

Below is shown a matrix of 5 different matrixes "PLANT FPY" is an average of the first four.

the blanks shown have zero data as no product was ran in the area thus resulting in zero data and the average is taking it as zero.

Is there any way i can have the average not count areas that have no data?

Hi , @afos111

Here are the steps you can refer to :

(1)This is my test data , i put three measures in the visual :

(2)We can create a measure :

``````Measure 5 = var _count =IF( [Measure 2] <> BLANK() ,1 ,0)+IF( [Measure 3] <> BLANK() ,1 ,0)+IF( [Measure 4] <> BLANK() ,1 ,0)
return
DIVIDE( [Measure 2]+[Measure 3]+[Measure 4] , _count)``````

(3)Then we can ignore the BLANK() data to calculate the average of the three measures:
