I am looking to run a query on a table which will determine the weighted average of a field. The table is designed as follows:

Name | Amount | Rating


I am trying to calculate Sum((Amount*Rating)/Sum of Amount), but I keep on getting aggregate errors relating to 'Sum of Amount'. Any ideas.

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Hullo. Let me see if I understand this correctly. What you have is, in effect:
Code:
Sum((A*R)/Sum of A)
Right? Here's hoping you have A calculated elsewhere. Try this instead:
Code:
Sum((A*R)/A)
and see if that gets you want you want.
