Dear All ,
I have question and request help ..
I have three columns A ,B and C
A column aggregation is taken as SUM
B column aggregation is taken as Average
C colimn aggregation is taken sa SUM
Now when i choose the option of column sub totals for B column i find the average is being displayed ...
is there any workings where we can get the total of averages for the B column ?
Column sub totals and totals is aggregated based on the statistic used. There isn't a way to override the statistic calculation you desire in the default cross table object.
If Averages are chosen then the sub total/total is an average. It doesn't make sense to see a sub total as the sum of averages when the underlying reported line items are averages.
I don't think this is possible. You cannot set the aggregation type in the data pane for an aggregated measure, so you cannot sum averages.
Remember that VA does not use the contents of the table to determine the totals, it uses the underlying dataset. So where the averages in the table are a [_ByGroup_] average, the total shown under the table is the same aggregation but as a [_ForAll_] average.
