I created a pivot table of stream flow values from 1994-2002. I want to find the median value for each monthly day, ie. for Jan 01, Jan 02, etc. but pivot tables don't appear to have that formula function. Can I somehow add median as a formula to a pivot table. If not what is the best way to find the median value for each calendar of a data set comprised of nine years?

I included a portion of my table. Right now it is displaying the average of each date for all nine years of data.

Thanks for any help.
