Calculating Averages for multiple columns, with multiple Recordsets

12 New Member
I have a table with over 12,000 entries. I have created a form (with the help of this forum) that will return the search results based upon the stop and stop time selected. See post http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread757933.html for additional context.

Now, I want to take this a step further by querying this table by clicking a new command button on the form which will open up a new query displaying the average number for six of these columns for each distinct stop. So, if stop "abcd" has 6 records returned from the search, when I click the new command button, I want to then calculate the averages for the specified columns: ON, OFF, LOAD, LOAD_FACTOR, SCHED_DEV, SCHED_RUNTIME, ACTUAL_RUNTIME) and display a new table showing the average of the sum of the values for each individual column, so at the end, I will have 1 record, displaying the six columns with the average (oh, and rounded to two decimal places), along with the other columns.

I know somewhere out there has done something similar...thank s in advance!

If you're wanting to do an average of a particular column of data, then all you have to do is simply add the AVG() function to that particular data item in the query.

If you're wanting to take multiple columns of data and due an average, then you would need to add all of them up in a single column and then apply the AVG() function to it.

If you need more detail, then I would need to see what you have setup so far, the example that you've given in the previous post didn't have what information you have on the form very clearly.

Kind of hard for me to give a more detail answer with out a better understanding of your database structure.

Firstly, sorry for the long post, but I've included a fair bit of sample data. Im doing a comparision of 10yr Bond prices and CPI adjustments, with an 18 week moving average of the CPI. I'm using a nested sub-query to calculate the moving average, but I'm having difficulty selecting exactly 18 data points (ie When I include the 'HAVING COUNT(C1.Closes) = 18' line, I get no results). Can anyone help?

I posted this in the MS Access group, but no luck. ------------------------------------------ I've got another stored procedure in the same app that returns multiple recordsets and the code works. But now I've written another SP and the code traps out with the 3251 message. The SP is writing two recordsets. When I run the SP in Query Analyzer, both recordsets appear.

Front-end Access 2000 I have a stored procedure that has 2 parameters BusinessUnitID and Year. It returns multiple record sets (5 to be exact).

I was inspired by the recent discussion of returning multiple recordsets to ADO from a stored procedure. (Amazed is probably more accurate). I asked about how to accomplish same with Oracle and got a nudge in the right direction from Mr. Kreft. I promised to provide details once working, so here it is. The code is shown below. My next step is to build this technique into my application. I'm hoping for substantial performance gain. ...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
