Excel 2007 pivot with custom calculation column apply to each row, how can I drag the cells?

I have this pivot table, very simple, column 1 and column 2 each hold a count of something.  I need to add a column so that I can calculate column1/column2.  That's it.  I can do that each row at a time, but I cannot do that with the "drag".  I have hundreds out rows to do, is there a way I can do it quicker?  
Thanks

You need to create a calculated field - e.g., AvgCol1Col2 = Column 1 / Column 2

See attached example.

Thanks dlmille.  But Column 1 and Column 2 are Pivot sums already, how do I calculate on these calculated columns?

maybe there are some missing details... Column 1 and Column 2 are Counts of the original field.

The actual sheet has columns:
Table Name, Approved.

The pivot table has:
Count of Table Name, Count of Approved

The column I want to add is:
Approved Percentage,  wihch should have a formular (count of approved / count of table name).  

I can't seem to get it working... please help.

You need to add helper columns to your source data having the counts of approved, and one for the counts in the dataset, then follow the approach I suggested.

If you have problems upload a sample of what you're working and I can adapt with this approach.

Cheers,

Dave
