sql calculate averages

I need to calculate averages miles driven for the car on the day of the week and the overall average. The result need to be displayed on one line. I am using PIVOT table but seems no able to get it to work

			SELECT [Monday],[Tuesday],[Wednesday],[Thursday],[Friday],[Saturday],[Sunday]
				FROM (	
					select CD.carkey,CD.startmileage,CD.endmileage,(CD.endmileage - CD.startmileage) milesDriven,DATENAME(WEEKDAY,SU.sessionStart) _WEEKDAY
					from car_details CD
					inner join Car C on C.carKey = CD.carKey
					inner join Users U on U.userKey = CD.updateuser
					inner join SessionUnit SU on SU.sessionKey = CD.sessionKey
					WHERE CD.carKey = 129 
					and SU.sessionStart BETWEEN '11/1/2016' AND '12/1/2016'
				)AS T
			PIVOT (
				avg(T.milesDriven) FOR _weekDay IN ([Monday],[Tuesday],[Wednesday],[Thursday],[Friday],[Saturday],[Sunday])
			) as piv

Are you getting any error or the calculation is coming incorrect ?

NerdsOfTechTechnology ScientistCommented:
In your SELECT clause you need a non-pivot field to hold your row of aggregate results;
try:

SELECT AvgMilesDriven, [Monday],[Tuesday],[Wednesday],[Thursday],[Friday],[Saturday],[Sunday]
	FROM (	
		select CD.carkey,CD.startmileage,CD.endmileage,(CD.endmileage - CD.startmileage) milesDriven,DATENAME(WEEKDAY,SU.sessionStart) _WEEKDAY
				from car_details CD
				inner join Car C on C.carKey = CD.carKey
				inner join Users U on U.userKey = CD.updateuser
				inner join SessionUnit SU on SU.sessionKey = CD.sessionKey
				WHERE CD.carKey = 129 
				and SU.sessionStart BETWEEN '11/1/2016' AND '12/1/2016'
			)AS T
		PIVOT (
			avg(T.milesDriven) FOR _weekDay IN ([Monday],[Tuesday],[Wednesday],[Thursday],[Friday],[Saturday],[Sunday])
		) as piv

Try..

Can you provide us some data to try ?

Can you give us output of below-
SELECT DISTINCT carkey, SUM(milesDriven) OVER() TotalMilesDriven, SUM(milesDriven) OVER (PARTITION BY _WEEKDAY) MilesPerCarWeekDay

With this

SELECT DISTINCT carkey, _WEEKDAY , SUM(milesDriven) OVER() TotalMilesDriven, SUM(milesDriven) OVER (PARTITION BY _WEEKDAY) MilesPerCarWeekDay

I've avoided using a day name in favor of a numeric method that works under any/all language and date settings.  Since day 0 in SQL Server, 1900-01-01, was a Monday, a simple displacement calc off that date will give the current day of week of any date without resorting to using character strings, which are slower to process in any event.


SELECT
    SUM(CASE WHEN DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, SU.sessionStart) % 7 = 0 THEN CD.endmileage - CD.startmileage ELSE 0 END) /
        SUM(CASE WHEN DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, SU.sessionStart) % 7 = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Monday_Avg_MilesDriven,
    SUM(CASE WHEN DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, SU.sessionStart) % 7 = 1 THEN CD.endmileage - CD.startmileage ELSE 0 END) /
        SUM(CASE WHEN DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, SU.sessionStart) % 7 = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Tuesday_Avg_MilesDriven,
    --...<repeat the pattern for Wednesday thru Saturday>...
    SUM(CASE WHEN DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, SU.sessionStart) % 7 = 6 THEN CD.endmileage - CD.startmileage ELSE 0 END) /
        SUM(CASE WHEN DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, SU.sessionStart) % 7 = 6 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS Sunday_Avg_MilesDriven
FROM car_details CD
INNER JOIN SessionUnit SU on SU.sessionKey = CD.sessionKey
WHERE CD.carKey = 129
