I have a pivot table with a ****load of fields. It would help if I could insert calculation fields within the pivot itself rather than doing it externally.

With the data below I'd like to create a field which shows the Profit per Order and the Shipping Cost per Order.

I went to the Analyze tab, Fields Items and Sets, Calculated Field, so I think I got that part handled. But evidently something didn't work there. When I tried to find the Shipment Cost / Order, the numbers should be $31K divided by 400 orders, but for some reason the result I got was 5. Not sure what I did wrong.

Is there a way to see what's being calculated?

PQ20$300$10

Is that table how your data is set out? It should be just as you said Shipping Cost/Number of orders. Make sure all your numbers are indeed numbers and not text.
