New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
Hi, I need to calculate & display a Average field column next to the Count of the Dep column in the code given below.So when I just run this code,I will get 5 columns(say M,N,O,P,Q) printed across ABC field.My average calculation is based on these 5 columns : Avg=((M*5)+(N*4)+(O*3)+(P*2)+(Q*1))/Sum(Q:M) Does anyone knows how to do this.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.
Below is my code : TABLE FILE HOLDDP SUM CNT.DEP BY ID BY NAME BY REG BY SUBR BY RMD_YR BY RMD_DT BY SLS BY SLD_Q ACROSS ABC ACROSS XYZ ON TABLE SET ASNAMES ON ON TABLE HOLD AS HOLD1 END -RUNThis message has been edited. Last edited by: <Kathryn Henning>,
What about something like this, though I don't see how that computation is an average:
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE AVG/D10 = ( (WEIGHT*5) +(LENGTH*4) + (HEIGHT*3) +(WHEELBASE*2) + (FUEL_CAP*1) ) / WEIGHT + LENGTH + HEIGHT + WHEELBASE + FUEL_CAP;

Hi Susannah, I tried using your method but unfortunately it always throws the below error message in this line of the code : numerator/D20=ABC * factor;. (FOC281)Alpha arguments in place where numeric are called for
I tried changing the format to A4 and even to I4 but of no use.[Just as an fyi...The format if the across field ABC is A4 in my code] Any help on how to get this resolved is greatly appreciated.This is really urgent to me. Thanks a lot in advance!
I think what Frank was trying to say is, that it should be obvious that you cannot do a mathmatical calculation on an Aplha field (A4). That is what the error message is telling you. Both fields need to be numeric. ACROSS is a bit trickier than BY, so there are already a lot of postings about it in this forum. If you can't find the answer already posted, we need to see all of your code (defines and everything) or an equivalent example written using the CAR data that comes with the WebFocus product.
