Dear Experts,

Can you please have a look at the pivot in the attached file, in D5 there is a formula

=GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of Stock";$A$3;"Category";"A")-GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of Standard";$A$3;"Category";"A")

But somehow if I copy this formula down so to follow this logic also in cells D6-D7-D8, it writes everywhere the same value.

Can you please advise how the formula should be to be able to copy down?

thanks,

Hello,

edit the formula in cell D5 to read

=GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of Stock",$A$3,"Category",A5)-GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of Standard",$A$3,"Category","A")

then copy down.

cheers, teylyn
