 [CLOSED] Not able to o the average calculation given the average calculation

Hi,

I have a table file and I need to do an average on the across field XYZ as shown in the code below.

TABLE FILE HOLDDP
SUM
CNT.DP
BY ID
BY NAME NOPRINT
BY REG NOPRINT
BY SUBR NOPRINT
BY RMD_YR NOPRINT
BY RMD_DT NOPRINT
BY SLS NOPRINT
BY SLD_Q NOPRINT
ACROSS XYZ
ACROSS ABC
ON TABLE SET ASNAMES ON
END
-RUN

When i run the code,I will get the report as shown below :
ID XYZ AVG
_____________________
AAAA 12 05 06
BBBB 05 20 15
CCCC 15 13 09

My average Calculation is something like this :
Average = ((12*5)+(05*4)+(06*3))/(12+5+6)[For the 1st row].
Average= ((05*5)+(20*4)+(15*3))/(5+20+15) {For the 2nd row]. and so on
Finally I need to display the average value in the average column beside the XYZ field.

Could anyone tell me how to do this.This is really really urgent.Please help.

Maybe you could start with telling why you do all the no prints and what all the fields mean.
You obvious do a average calculation on and with some fields you do not print
Maybe when you start with printing all the fields it might become clear where the error is.
Nowhere in your script you seem to use the formula average.
In your calculation you use 2 fields, the number of occurrences I guess is the cnt.dp, but what is the field you want to calculate?

And you have two times an across, in the output I see only one.

Btw....did you get some training? Do you have the manuals ?
Dd you do a search before posting your question ?

Can you show this using the CAR file?
Have you considered the use of the AVG prefix operator (which computes the average value of the field)?
