I have source data that shows 3 paths (Path 1, 2, 3), yet when it displays percentages, I only want the pivot table to reflect percentages for only Path 1 and 2. I can hide path 3, but the percentages still count the path 3 numbers.
 How can I solve this?  *See attachment

Also how do I eliminate the #DIV/0! error?

Thanks for your tremendous assistance.

Here is how to get rid of the errors.  Two options I see:

Pivot Table Menu: Options>Layout & Format > Format > For Error Values Show "0"
Or go to your calculated field PKG_% and surround the formula with IfError(Calculated Field), "')
0

@tomfarrar It seems the calculated field produces the perfect percentages when it's only 7 rows of data and NOT when it's 52,500 rows of data (as you can see the multitude of 0.00% throughout the attached pivot table). How can the calculated field be tweaked to reflect correct percentages with a larger dataset?
Thank you for your help (we are close).
