this will calculate the geometric mean in sql server 2000
declare @scores table (score int)
insert into @scores values (5);  
insert into @scores values (7);  
insert into @scores values (55);  
insert into @scores values (6);  
insert into @scores values (3);  

declare @total	float;
declare @val	float;
declare @cnt	int;
declare @res	float;
set @total = 0.0;

declare cscores cursor for
select score from @scores

open cscores
fetch next from cscores into @val;
while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
begin
	select @total = @total + LOG(@val);
	fetch next from cscores into @val;
end

select @cnt = COUNT(*) from @scores;
select @res = @total / (@cnt *1.0)
select @cnt, @res, @total


select EXP(@res)

Sorry, Im so new to this... .So would I create a function?  using LOSD field below, how could I Calculate Means?

This is the Length of Stay in Days, that I need to calculate Mean?
LOSD
16
21
3
8
783
1
4
4
3
13
=avg(Fields!LOSD.Value) gives me 85.60, but I need Mean?

The output will be in SSRS

A function like this should help you
create function dbo.fnGetMedian ()
returns float
as 
begin
	declare @total	float;
	declare @val	float;
	declare @cnt	int;
	declare @res	float;
	set @total = 0.0;

	declare cscores cursor for
	select losd from yourTable

	open cscores
	fetch next from cscores into @val;
	while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
	begin
		select @total = @total + LOG(@val);
		fetch next from cscores into @val;
	end

	select @cnt = COUNT(*) from @scores;
	select @res = @total / (@cnt *1.0)

	select @val = EXP(@res);
	
	return @val;
end

so modify the function as follows and use it like this

select AVG(losd) as avarage,  dbo.fnGetMedian() as geomean
from [INTENSIVE CARE UNIT]
create function dbo.fnGetMedian ()
returns float
as 
begin
	declare @total	float;
	declare @val	float;
	declare @cnt	int;
	declare @res	float;
	set @total = 0.0;

	declare cscores cursor for
	select losd from [INTENSIVE CARE UNIT];

	open cscores
	fetch next from cscores into @val;
	while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
	begin
		select @total = @total + LOG(@val);
		fetch next from cscores into @val;
	end

	select @cnt = COUNT(*) from [INTENSIVE CARE UNIT];
	select @res = @total / (@cnt *1.0)

	select @val = EXP(@res);
	
	return @val;
end

is there a way to create a more universal function?   without having to , but more universal so when I get the mean it would be something like:   dbo.fnGetMedian(LOSD)     just a thought.

sure you can make the funtion to be more general by providing table name and column name as input and using dynamic sql sytax or you can change funtion to an sp for using dynamic sql.

I give you the points for trying.

My solution:
SELECT Exp(Sum(Log(sample))/Count(*)) AS GM
FROM sample_table;
