If I have this data in a list how do I calculate the average daily sales using weekly totals. The pivot table would give a result of 5.35 for January but I reckon it should be 4.42. Furthermore if the sales data were not weekly but irregular how would I then calculate the average daily sales?

Any help with this would be most appreciated.

I should add that I am trying to show the data by grouping monthly in a pivot table to show daily sales per month
