## Calculate Average Order frequency

Hi All,

I have dataset like below, I want to show =Average order frequency.

Like, we are reciving the order for every X minutes.

I have tried different calculation as suggested by in the forum. But, couldn't get the expected result.

Here I suggest you to try this code to create a calculated column.

``````Diff column =
VAR _LASTORDER =
CALCULATE ( MIN ( 'Table'[order id] ), ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[date] ) )
VAR _DIFF =
[Datetime]
- MAXX (
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[order id] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[order id] ) - 1 ),
[Datetime]
)
RETURN
IF ( 'Table'[order id] = _LASTORDER, BLANK (), _DIFF )``````

Result is as below.

it is a best practice to avoid using EARLIER to make the code easier to author and maintain, using variable (VAR), like in this example:

Diff column =
VAR FirstOrder_of_the_Day =
CALCULATE (
MIN ( 'Table'[Order ID] ),
ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[Date] )
)

VAR Order_ID = 'Table'[Order ID]

VAR Diff =
[DateTime]
- MAXX (
FILTER ('Table',
'Table'[Order ID] = Order_ID - 1
),
[DateTime]
)
RETURN
IF (
'Table'[Order ID] = FirstOrder_of_the_Day,
BLANK(),
Diff
)

@Adhavan , In case Order ID are incremental only

a new column

Datetime= [Date]+ [Time]

Diff column =

[Datetime] - maxx(filter(Table, [Order_id] = earlier([Order_id]) -1) ,[Datetime] )

a Measure

Average(Table[Diff column])

Its provided the result at each column. But, it calculate wrong average value due to following reason, which I couldn't elimate nor find the solution.

1. It calculates 18 hours for Jan' 1st alone.

2. It showing 12+ hours for every first order of the day (calculating from previous day)

I have attached the reference image. Could you help me to rid out of that.
