    Level of Detail Question from a Beginner

    Peter Lakie

      Looking for help from an experienced user:


      I sell parts to customers who have platforms, each platform has a certain number of units and my sales are different for each platform.


      I want to find the average sales for each platform.  In words this would be the total sales divided by the number of units for that platform.


      Every time I try to do this in Tableau I get a much lower result as I am dividing by the number of units for each time the same platform is listed rather than just one value of the units.


      I have made a simple file to illustrate.


      I am sure this is a LoD issue but I have tried INCLUDE / EXCLUDE but still can't get to the right answer


      Any help greatly appreciated!
