@AVGRANGE

Returns the average value of the specified member (mbrName) across the specified range (XrangeList).

Syntax

@AVGRANGE ( SKIPNONE | SKIPMISSING | SKIPZERO | SKIPBOTH, mbrName [, XrangeList])
Parameter Description

SKIPNONE

Includes all cells specified in the average operation regardless of their content.

SKIPMISSING

Excludes all values that are #MISSING in the average operation.

SKIPZERO

Excludes values of zero from the average calculation.

SKIPBOTH

Excludes all values of zero or #MISSING from the average calculation.

mbrName

Any valid single member or member combination.

XrangeList

Optional. A valid member name, a comma-delimited list of member names, cross dimension members, or a member set function or range function (including @XRANGE) that returns a list of members from the same dimension. If XrangeList is not specified, Essbase uses the level 0 members from the dimension tagged as Time.

Notes

The @AVGRANGE function accepts the @ATTRIBUTE member set function as a member range.

Example

The following example is based on the Sample Basic database. The calculation script determines the average sales of Colas in the West.

FIX(Sales)
West=@AVGRANGE(SKIPNONE,Sales,@CHILDREN(West));
ENDFIX

This example produces the following report:
