I suggest you use a COMPUTE to calculate your average:

COMPUTE AVG/D12.2=(C3+C4+C5)/3; AS 'Average'

This will compute the average of the three columns mentioned. Make sure you use ON TABLE RECOMPUTE to have the average correctly shown on your summary line(s)

Rama,

You could try something similar to this:

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM SALES
BY COUNTRY
ON TABLE SUBTOTAL AVE. SALES AS 'AVE: '
END

The syntax of using prefix operators in summary lines (SUBTOTAL, RECOMPUTE etc.) is described in the WebFOCUS 5.3 New Features manual
(I have never seen this sytax in the earlier documentation), but it works with some other versions (e.g 5.20).

Hope this helps
Grzegorz
