Hello,

I would like to sort my Pivot Table by a value shown as '% of Row Total'. When I try to do this, the table is sorted instead by the actual value (the count). Is there a way to sort by the 'Shown As' value instead of the actual value?

An example of my Pivot Table is below. Here, the Pivot Table is sorted (Row Label > Sort Options/Ascending/% > More Options > Column C), but instead of using the % values in Column C, the table is sorted by the # Values in Column B. (Column B and C both represent the same source data. Column B is a Count while Column C is a '% of Row Total').

ABCDEFGH
NBSBTOTAL #
R. Label#%#%#%
Adam624%1664%312%25
Ben950%950%00%18
Charlie950%950%00%18
Doug1056%844%00%18
Evan1158%632%211%19
Frank1267%633%00%18
George1250%1042%28%24
Harold1376%424%00%17
Isaiah1376%424%00%17
Jeff1365%735%00%20
