Avg Sales Per Week Day using DAX

New Contributor

Hi, all. I have a dimension table that is a standard date dimension table - has all the usual elements (date, day of week, week number, month number, etc).

 

I also have a fact table with sales for each date.

 

I am interested in getting the average sales per day of the week. For example, average sold on Monday. Average sold on Tuesday. Etc.

 

I am using: AVERAGEX(VALUES(dCalendar[Day of Week]),[QTY]) but it's producing numbers that don't square with reality.

 

Any other suggestions?

It's not clear how you'd like to use it. If the model is like

you may add measure

Average Qty:=AVERAGE( Table1[QTY] )

and show it as

@Sergei, Thank you. This is giving me the average of each order on those week days. I am looking for the average of the total quantity for each of those weekdays. That's why I tried AVERAGEX because it would sum the quantity for each weekday first, then run the average for each weekday.

If I understood your logic correctly that could be

Total Qty:=SUM( Table1[QTY] )
Another Average:=AVERAGEX( 'Calendar', Table1[Total Qty] )

Another way is

Distinct Dates:=DISTINCTCOUNT( Table1[Date] )
Same Average:=DIVIDE( [Total Qty], [Distinct Dates], 0 )
