2007 Excel Pivot Table Average Dollars per Manager
Posted on 2014-08-21
I have a pivot table where it shows the Regional Manager, the Area Manager, the Direct Manager and then each associate for each Direct Manager. Let's say that each associate incurred costs at X dollars. The sum of X dollars for each associate is totaled for their respective Direct Manager, each Direct Manager's totals are summed for the Area Manager, and each Area Manager's totals are summed for each Regional Manager.
My question is this, is it possible to create a function or calculated field to determine the average cost per associate.
Example: Regional Mgr Area Mgr Direct Mgr Grand Total $ per Associate
Associate A $1 $1
Associate B $2 $2
Associate C $5 $5
Associate D $0 $0
Direct Mgr Grand Total $7 $1.75
For a large pivot table, calculating this field at line level is tedious, and I didn't know if there was a way to create this function within the pivot table. Or, is there another option I haven't thought about?
Once I am able to understand how to show the total cost per associate per Direct Manager, I can then apply that logic for each Area Manager's Direct Manager's "$ per Associate" amounts.
