I am having some difficulties with my end result when I create a calculated item in a pivot table and cannot figure out how to resolve it.

In my pivot table I have a column for each month of the year and a column for Grand Total which sums the values from each month of the year. I want to include in my pivot table a column for each Quarter of the year by creating a calculated item. When I do this, however, the pivot table adds this value to the Grand Total amount. Is there a way to change this so that the Grand Total does not include the values for each quarter?

I can send examples to support my question.

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

I have thought about that, but what I'm actually trying to do is have the Grand Total just calculate the values of the months.

Turn off the Grand Totals and create a Calculated Item for it as well as those for the Quarters.
