# Excel Pivot Tables - Getting % of Total for filtered output

Posted on 2015-02-10

I have a filtered pivot table and I want to show the % of the output rows compared to the Unfiltered Total for that row.

In other words, if I am filtering on a Y or N field for field = N and I get an out of 10 and there were 90 with a Y I would like the % of  the 10 versus the 100 total.

Can this be done?

Thanks

Hi,

you could add a column to your data with the percentage of each element compared to the total then sum it up and change the format to %
