Pivot grand total % calculation


Board Regular
Jan 7, 2015
I am working on a pivot table to look at data of previous quarter and current quarter. I got a grand total in the bottom for each value. However, when I am putting a formula for % change from previous quarter to current quarter, in the grand total, the % change is not based on total and it is incorrect.

Is there a way for me to fix a formula for % change on grand total?

It looks you're on the right track. I don't use the additional calculation methods enough so the "Show Value as...Percent of... " Parent? Previous? still has me doing a little trial & verification.
If all else fails you can always add a calculated field or a calculated field directly to your source table.
