How can you get a correct Average of a Percentage in a Pivot Table?

Example:
22,287 388 17.0%
43 8 18.6%
19 5 26.3%
Total:
2,349 401 20.6% 17.1%

The pivot will give 20.6% as the average of the 3 lines above. When the actual correct average is to sum the 3 Lines in the 2 columns and take an average of that total. Thus 17.1% is the accurate Average of the 3 lines.
 

Excel Facts

Select all contiguous cells
Pressing Ctrl+* (asterisk) will select the "current region" - all contiguous cells in all directions.

Hi
You will have to add a 'calculated item/field' in order to get the right values.
Happy to help out if you don't know how!
Best regards
