SQL: AVG of an alias

Hi,

We want to compute the average of the djsresult field and save that as a new column.

we're using:

,Case WHEN (txtResultName IS NULL OR txtResultName = 'Average Point Score') THEN intGradeTransposeValue ELSE txtresult END as djsresult

How do I then calculate an Average of the djsresult field and include it in the results table as a column.

You have to wrap it with the AVG function:
AVG(Case WHEN (txtResultName IS NULL OR txtResultName = 'Average Point Score') THEN intGradeTransposeValue ELSE txtresult END as djsresult)

Open in new window

Of course, you'll have to then group all of your other selected fields in a GROUP BY.

You'll need to decide what you want to AVG over/by, and those columns in the PARTITION BY:
...
LEFT JOIN
      (SELECT * from
            (SELECT [TblReportsStoreID]
                  ,[txtSchoolID]
                        --...
                  ,[txtPosition]
                  ,Case WHEN (txtResultName IS NULL OR txtResultName = 'Average Point Score') THEN txtGradingName ELSE txtResultName END as djsresulttype
                  ,Case WHEN (txtResultName IS NULL OR txtResultName = 'Average Point Score') THEN intGradeTransposeValue ELSE txtresult END as djsresult
                 ,AVG(Case WHEN (txtResultName IS NULL OR txtResultName = 'Average Point Score') THEN intGradeTransposeValue ELSE txtresult END)
                            OVER (PARTITION BY <your_column_names_go_here>) AS Avg_djsresult
                  ,DENSE_RANK() OVER (ORDER BY dtReportCyclePrintDate desc, intReportCycleID desc) AS intCycleRank
            FROM [DJS-iSAMS-DJS].[dbo].[VwReportsManagementAcademicReports]
