Hi,

Trying to display a value field using the "difference from" option in value field settings, but would like to use a base item which is not being pulled into the report area in order to avoid unnecessary columns.

For example, I have two iterations of values for the same items and want to display the difference between the two, but using my current approach requires having both values on display, as well as a redundant column where the pivot is showing a variance between the same set of figures (nil).

Is there a better approach to this?

Thanks,
David
