How is 'Average' usage calculated in a Resource / Cost graphic report? P3 3.0;3.1 The sum of the average usage for 3 different cost accounts does not match the average usage when all 3 cost accounts are included in one report.

 

For example, a resource is associated with three cost accounts. When a resource/cost graphic report is run for each cost account using the 'Average' selection in the Content window, the following results are displayed:

Cost account #1:  22.86
Cost account #2:  28.06
Cost account #3:  10.59

The sum of these averages is 61.51.

When a resource/cost graphic report is run that includes all three cost accounts using the 'Average' selection in the Content window, the result is 72.86.
