Hopefully a simple one. All of the below is in InfoAssist 8.1.05.
I have a report that takes a standard numeric field and sets aggregation to AVG. The row elements in the report are correct but the column total is summing the average of all rows and not giving the actual average of the aggregated data.
TABLE FILE xxx/xxxx
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
ON TABLE RECOMPUTE
How do I get the column total to also be the AVG?

Here are a few Focal Point links that will help out with your subtotal of an average. Not InfoAssist related however.
Get the Total of Sub-Total averages
Average In Footer
You can also compute the average and then put this field into a SUB FOOTER then the column invisible.
With not really knowing the data you could try adding into the summary (Compute) window:
MUSCATSCR / CNT.MUSCATSCR
Then add the new field into the Subfoot line. Here is a link with coding for this:
Adding an average line after grand totals

In InfoAssist, Home tab, look for Column Totals on the right of your screen, click the drop down for Column Totals and pick More Options, select Recomputed radio button and then look at the Prefix and change it from Sum to Average.

I believe you will need to explicitly perform the calculation if you want it RECOMPUTEd for the TOTALs line.
TABLE FILE CAR SUM AVE.SALES COMPUTE AVG_SALES/I6 = SALES / CNT.SALES ; BY COUNTRY WHERE SALES NE 0 ; ON TABLE RECOMPUTE END
