Average Volume Question/s

While I'm able to see the average volume on my charts, it somehow seems to not be available on the Scan tab, in two respects. One can scan based upon multiple criteria, including volume, but not the average volume? Seems odd to me. And in the scan results, there are tons of data that can selected to be included, but no average volume. Am I missing something? As a reference point, the average volume is significant, I feel.

When I asked about a year ago, I was provided this ThinkScript:


This yielded some goofy results, in some cases in what appeared to be scientific notation. Support then modified it to this:

VolumeAvg(50).VolAvg / 1000

It still looks strange as I get a decimal in odd places, often with several digits after the decimal...

If you have average volume on your TOS scans or Watchlists, please share how you accomplished this. Thank you.
