# PowerPivot in Excel 2013 - Combine vertical total with horizontal average

Hello Experts,

I have a PowerPivot Table in Excel 2013 for reporting TV audience data.

I’m kind of stuck on one report that shows the viewership levels by Channel by hour by Day of Week.

The problem is that I want to show the total of viewership of all hours (Vertical Total) per day, and then have an average of viewership across days.

Please refer to the attached Excel sheet for an exact explanation of what I’m trying to do.

Unfortunately I only have 2010 here so I can't manipulate your model but as I said earlier you want a measure that is simply:
=SUM([TRPs])

then the data field you add to the pivot would be a new measure using:

=AVERAGEX(VALUES(dCalendar[day_name_short]),[sum measure name])

Unfortunately, you are trying to combine two things in one PowerPivot Table:

1. You are adding (SUM) together all of the viewers per hour into a heading in the rows.
2. You are then wanting to AVERAGE all the daily figures into a total going across.

I don't think you can do both in the same table. You should do the SUM in the table, and then have a separate column and AVERAGE them in a separate column.

I will give it a try later tonight and get back to you with my comments.

Could you post a sample of your actual data - I suspect it is entirely possible with Power Pivot. You need a measure that sums your values (called say HourSum), then you need another measure that uses a formula like:
=AVERAGEX(Values([dayfield]),HourSum)
