## How do I add average, min and max columns to matrix?

I am trying to add average, min and max column to a matrix. I am a new Power BI user but I am an advanced user in Excel. I was able to accomplish what I need in Excel but I am struggling to firgure it out in Power BI

Here is what it looks like in Excel:

The data also needs to auto update as per what is displayed in the matrix. What I mean by this is that if you only select two days worth of tests it should show the average for just those two days. If you show all of the days for the tests it needs to show the average for all days.

Here is what I have so far in Power BI:

Hi, @cmckinney

There is no direct way to achieve it. As a workaround, you may try the following steps. I created data to reproduce your scenario. The pbix file is attached in the end.

Table:

You may go to 'Query Editor', make 'Name' column selected, click 'Transform'=>'Unpivot Columns'=>'Unpivot Other Columns', 'Close and Apply'.

Then you need to create measures as below.

``````Max =
IF(
NOT(ISINSCOPE('Table'[Date])),
CALCULATE(
MAX('Table'[Value]),
ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Name])
)
)

Min =
IF(
NOT(ISINSCOPE('Table'[Date])),
CALCULATE(
MIN('Table'[Value]),
ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Name])
)
)

Avg =
IF(
NOT(ISINSCOPE('Table'[Date])),
CALCULATE(
AVERAGE('Table'[Value]),
ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[Name])
)
)``````

Result:

Awesome! Thank you so much, this is a great solution. Is there anyway to remove the min, max, and average columns under each date and just have them as a total column at the end?

Hi, @cmckinney

Unfortunately, it is unavailable to remove  the min, max, and average columns under each date. The workaround is an alternative to achieve your requirement.

Thank you for the feedback. That should work.

I am working on implimenting that right now but I am running into some issues. Do you know what I might be doing wrong?

Hi @cmckinney ,

this cannot currently be shown in a matrix.

Another column area would be required.

I have also figure out how to pivot the table in the Power Query Editor view. Is there any way to add the min, max and average rows in this way?
