Simplest way I think would be to Sum the field in the table and then create another table alongside using GETPIVOTDATA formulas. See attached.

Thanks, that's headed the right direction.  But I'd like to be able to drag multiple Row Lables into the Pivot Table, but when I do the formulas (understandably) break...  I suppose I could write a macro to rebuild the formulas...

I don't think there is a good solution without code.

I think you're right.  Might be why I've always steered away from PTs!  Thanks for your input!
