I have a report that uses the count function.

I would like this to be hidden and then use the average function on it.

How do I do this


??? Help ???

The average of any single value is just the value?  What am I not understanding?

e.g. Avg(Count(*) = Count(*)

There is never time to do it right but there is always time to do it over


eg They are grouped by make of car and number sold by sales men

Make    count     avg

Ford    500        22

Fiat    100        10


Still confused in somewhere U.S.A.

Are you attempting to portray that 500 fords were sold and that, on average, salesmen averaged 22 Fords Each?

Therefore, you have 22.72727 salesmen? (for Fords?)

Whereas you sold 100 Fiats with the average salesman selling 10 of these (but there are only 10 salesmen doing fiats)?

If the above 'interpertation' is correct, how are you 'deriving' the number of salesmen for each group?

There is never time to do it right but there is always time to do it over
