SSAS 2008 MDX Calculate Average Between Two Measures

Hi,

I need to be able to calculate an Average over two seperate measures within a SSAS 2008 Cube.

In my cube, I have two measures, one called [Measures].[Order Quantity] and the other called [Measures].[Order Quantity Week On Week]. The later is a Calculated Measure.

I need to be able to find the Median Average between the two.

So, if [Measures].[Order Quantity] = 1000 and [Measures].[Order Quantity Week On Week] = 1200, I need the Calculation to return 1100.

Is it possible at all to Calulcate an Average over two measures in MDX ?

Thanks

See   http://www.sqldev.org/sql-server-analysis-services/avg-function-using-calculated-measure-in-ssas-9390.shtml

As explained in the link above, in order for the average to be computed correctly and only include the count of the measure in the average when measure is not null or zero, another field (AdjCount) should be created to impute the correct denominator by placeing the following formula in a field called AdjCount.
        AdjCount = case isnull([Measures].[OrderQuantity], 0) when 0 then 0 else 1 end
then the computation of the Avg would be as follows:
       ( [Measures].[OrderQuantity] + [Measures].[Order Quantity Week On Week]) / AdjCount  
0
