Hello -

I have a pivot table in EXCEL.  One column contains $ and the next % of those dollars to the total.
i.e.
Header   Amount  % of Total  Need calculation here
Row 1     $500           40%        40%
Row 2     $500           40%        80%
Row 3     $250           20%       100%
Total        $1,250       100%

This data is in a pivot table.  I would like to add a calulation in the pivot that would add each row's % of total (see need calculation here) header.

Any idea???
Thanks

Hi,

See Attached.
In the Pivot Table Value Field Settings, on the Show Values As tab, select % Running Total In.

OK - this seems to work for this data set but when I add additional data (a row 4) it changes the sum of % to a number???
Thanks

Hi,

In the Show Values As tab, have you selected x as the Base Field?
Selecting y gives #N/A.
