## Keep row values as sum, but change total as average in matrix

As the title implies, is it possible to change the total of a matrix into average without changing the row values (sum)? I have seen solutions where it involves modifying the column and just creating measures for column values, but the column headers should be dynamic as they are date columns and they will add on the longer the time goes. Kindly see sample data below. I know there is a way to have Monthly row totals be made into measures and show that into the table instead, but that is not really dynamic. Can anyone please help?

Thank you.

Hi, @noobpowerbiuser ;

You could create a measure

``````Measure =
IF (
ISINSCOPE ( 'Table'[Date].[Year] ),
SUM ( 'Table'[values] ),
AVERAGEX (
SUMMARIZE (
'Table',
[Catetory],
[Date].[Year],
[Date].[Month],
"1", SUM ( 'Table'[values] )
),
[1]
)
)
``````

you can use HASONEVALUE to check if you are on a Resource Type row like this.

``````Amount Measure =
IF (
HASONEVALUE ( 'Table'[Resource Type] ),
SUM ( 'Table'[Amount] ),
AVERAGEX ( VALUES ( 'Table'[Resource Type] ), CALCULATE ( SUM ('Table'[Amount] ) ) )
)``````

Sorry, this makes the column totals as average, but I want the row totals in average. Basically just switched around

@noobpowerbiuser , Assume you are using a measure M1 in the matrix

AverageX(Summarize(Fact, Date[FY Year], Date[Qtr], Fact[Resource Group]), [M1])
