Query Expression Question

Query Expression Question

Query Expression Question

In a query I have an expression that calculates a person's age based on today's date and their DOB. Is it possible to create another expression that calculates all these people's ages and gives me an average. Could I do this at the query level or do I have to do it at the report design level? I'm not clear on how do do this at either level.

Thanks for your help.

RE: Query Expression Question

Show your query where you "have an expression that calculates a person's age based on today's date and their DOB" and I am sure somebody will modify it to give you an average age.

Thanks Andy. Here's the expression: Age: (Now()-[DOB])/365.2425

RE: Query Expression Question

Could you show the entire query?
It is easier to add the Average column to your existing statement, if that's the approach you want to take.

Otherwise, something like:
SELECT ..., Now()-[DOB])/365.2425 As Age,
Now()-[DOB])/365.2425) As AvgAge
From ...
GROUP By ...

Where in Group By you mention all fields from your Select statement except AvgAge
