To duplicate "Count of FieldA", create a new column that just has a number 1 in it. Summing that column will give you the results you are looking for.

Hi Thomas,

Do you mean create a new column in the raw dataset with a 1 in the column or to create a column in the Pivottable tools, Calculated Fields?  Thanks

Sorry for the confusion. Try this as a calculated field in the PT:

=Count(FieldA) / Sum(FieldB)
