1. See a pivot table like the example here:

http://www.mrexcel.com/tip015.shtml

How would you go about displaying the %'s as a % of the subtotal (see last pivot table).
Eg in West Total it says 79.01%. I want that to read 100% and in the line above appels to be displayed as 64/448 = 14.2% of the West total.

Any help much appreciated!

Regards,

William

3. Hi Mark,

thanks for your response. I can see that the data you display is the answer, but I have no idea how you accomplished the second part of the data table, titled %. Is this a derived field (which formula?) that you drag in the data part of the layout, or is this the Sales field shown as a % (which one?) and dragged to the column part of the layout?

Thanks again,

William

4. Sorry... I moved the 'Region' field button to the COLUMN area, dragged a 2nd copy of the 'Sales' field to the DATA area, double clicked on this 'Sales' field, renamed it to '%', clicked the [ Option>> ] button, and set the "Show data as" selection to "% of column".
