Q10666 - INFO: GAVGOPV
GAVGOPV returns the average (or the optional print value if the average is outside the optional print limits) of all of the values (values can contain data qualifiers) in the date range specified by the Offset and Grouping for the variable.

SYNTAX:

GAVGOPV(VarNum, GroupOffset/StartDate, Grouping/EndDate, Decimal Places) 

VarNum:  The variable number to get the average for.

GroupOffset/StartDate: Used with the Grouping parameter to set the dates to calculate the stat for.  Sets the number of Groups (set by the Grouping Parameter) to be added to set the dates.  See examples below. If this field is a date string (i.e. "07/16/2004") or refers to a cell with a date in it, it is assumed to be the start date to calculate the stat for.

Grouping/EndDate: Used to set which dates to calculate the stat for.  If the Grouping is a date literal string (i.e. "07/16/2004") or refers to a cell with a date in it, it is assumed to be the end date to calculate the stat for. Common Settings are:

"D" Days
“M” Monthly 
"R" Report Dates 
“Y” Yearly

Decimal Places: Sets the number of decimal places to be displayed. For variables with decimal places set to "Not Fixed" click here for additional formatting options.

NOTES:

In Design, Spread Reports use Locate, Group Summary to place this formula on a report.

EXAMPLES:

GAVGOPV(1,1,"R") returns the average for Variable 1 for the Report date range.  If the average crosses the threshold of the Optional Print Value setup for variable 1, the Optional Print value will be printed in lieu of the average.
