I am creating a new BI Publisher data model to analyze some expense report data. I need to divide a sum of values by a count(distinct) however, the result returned is showin as a tenth of the correct


Report to analyze average time taken to approve expense claims

Values are:

total no. of reports = count(distinct expense_report_num) = 1978

total time to approve = sum(expense_submit_date - expense_final_approval_date) = 23348

Need to divide total time to approve by total no. of reports. So I am using the following calculation:

(SUM(eer.final_approval_date - eer.report_submit_date)) / COUNT(DISTINCT 

Howdy, Stranger!
