Hi I'm trying to divide & average out ratingsum / filenamecount.

When I add  
(SELECT COALESCE(ratingsum,1) / COALESCE(filenamecount,1)) as divnumber
I receive an sql server error stating that either columns doesn't exist

SELECT filename, rating,
                          (SELECT     SUM(rating) AS Expr1
                            FROM         mytable AS GV
                            WHERE      GV.filename = a.filename) AS ratingsum,
                          (SELECT     COUNT(*) AS Expr2
                            FROM          mytable AS GV
                            WHERE       GV.filename = a.filename) AS filenamecount,
                   (SELECT COALESCE(ratingsum,1) / COALESCE(filenamecount,1)) as divnumber
FROM         mytable AS a

There is no FROM <tablename> part for that sub-query. So field are not identified
