# average volume of the last 5 days in Scan with smaller time Frame

Hello everyone, I want to calculate the average volume of the last 5 days in the following code.

Code:
``````def day1 = volume(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[1];
def day2 = volume(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[2];
def day3 = volume(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[3];
def day4 = volume(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[4];
def day5 = volume(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[5];

def Avg = Round((day1 + day2 + day3 + day4 + day5) / 5, 0); # tried to implement as a fold function but couldn't get it to work
AddLabel(yes, "Avg: " + Avg, Color.WHITE);``````

However, in the chart, it does not differentiate when I choose a timeframe smaller than 1 Day. I can choose a 15 or 30-minute frame and it still gives accurate results. But in the scan, when choosing a timeframe smaller than 1 Day, it says "Secondary period not allowed: Day.". Does anyone know how to get the average volume value of the last 5 days when using the scan? Sincerely thank you.

Solution
No.
Unfortunately, multiple timeframes are not supported in the scan hacker.
No, there is no workaround.

It can be done only If the the scan logic calculations are not using mixed values across timeframes.
in this case just remove the aggregation. and scan on daily.( add a new scan condition per timeframe)
scan for higher volume
def avgvol = average(volume,5)[1];
plot lower = volume > avgvol;
