[CLOSED] Unable to find the Average of a Field(By field)

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
-RUN

What about something like this, though I don't see how that computation is an average:

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
CNT.LENGTH
COMPUTE AVG/D10 = ( (WEIGHT*5) +(LENGTH*4) + (HEIGHT*3) +(WHEELBASE*2) + (FUEL_CAP*1) ) / WEIGHT + LENGTH + HEIGHT + WHEELBASE + FUEL_CAP;

BY COUNTRY
ACROSS SEATS
ACROSS BODYTYPE
END

You post this two times.
Maybe remove the second one to avoid mistakes

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.
