## Introduction

This article describes how to go from a table with column spans...

...to a table that includes an **Average** column per span:

## Method

1. Select your table.

2. In the toolbar go to **Automate > Browse Online Library > Table Computations > ****Add Average Columns to Tables Containing Spans**.

3. Set the **Position** to place the new row to the left or right of each span.

4. OPTIONAL: Tick **Include span label in new column labels** to, for example, in the first span, change **Average** to **Average of Coca-Cola**.

5. Press **OK**.

This rule adds an **Average** column to beneath every span which is computed as the average of the statistics of the other columns within that span. No significance tests are conducted on these averages.

Note, if you select **Switch rows and columns **on your table, the rule will no longer work due to the table dimensions changing. In this case, you will have to apply the **Add Average Rows to Tables Containing Spans **rule instead.
