Getting a yearly average from a measure

I have a ratio measure, and would like to take the yearly average of that measure.

Here is a screenshot of what I would like to achieve for the new average measure, Measure 2:

mathiasljy_0-1596598911449.png

Measure 1 is calculated from 2 columns in my dataset, using DAX: Measure 1 = DIVIDE(Table1[Column1],Table1[Column2],0)
I have tried using this formula for Measure 2: 

Measure 2 = AVERAGEX(SUMMARIZE(Table1,Calendar[Year],"Average",[Measure1]),[Measure1])
But the result i get is exactly the same as Measure 1. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, am quite new to this. 

Thank you for the help!

@Anonymous ,

 

Measure 2 = calculate(AvergaeX(Table[Measure1]), filter(allselected(Table),Table[Year]=max(Table[Year])))

or
Measure 2 = calculate(AvergaeX(Table[Measure1]), filter(all(Table),Table[Year]=max(Table[Year])))

Hi @Anonymous ,
According to my understanding ,you want to calculate average based on measure and different year,right?
I did it in two ways.
 

1.Use Average

Divide column =
DIVIDE ( 'average table'[column1], 'average table'[Column2], 0 )
average measure =
CALCULATE (
    AVERAGE ( 'average table'[Divide column] ),
    ALLEXCEPT ( 'average table', 'average table'[Year] )
)

2.Use Averagex

 

Measure 7 =
SUM ( 'average table'[Divide column] )
use avaragex =
AVERAGEX ( ALLEXCEPT ( 'average table', 'average table'[Year] ), [Measure 7] )

 


My visualization looks like this:

Could my methods help you solve the problem? Hope to give me a reply,thanks.

@amitchandak , I used your formula and changed the averagex part to this:

AVERAGEX(SUMMARIZE('Calendar','Calendar'[Date],"Avg",[Measure1]),[Avg])
and then it worked, thanks!

Hi @amitchandak ,

I cant seem to use that formula. After AverageX, Table[Measure1] does not seem to be an option for the first arguement, only Table is available in the drop down list.
