# [Mondrian] average percentage values with visual totals/totals

```Maybe you could calculate a 'count' and 'sum' member using VisualTotals, and then divide them.

oops... sent too soon.. sorry.
No..  here we calculate inline as part of the "with" statement. e.g.:

member [Account].[LSYH].[Project %] as '([Account].[LSYH].[Direct result] / [Account].[LSYH].[Revenues])', FORMAT_STRING = "0.0%"

other values in the rows are plain numbers, so their summing into VT is perfectly ok.
Any Ideas?

Is the measure you are talking about an AVG aggregator value? Meaning the percentages are stored as numbers in the fact table and then you create an AVG measure on top of that?
If so VisualTotals() should calculate it fine, in the end its just calling Aggregate() on the children

If not, schema / MDX would help
