I have a table that looks something like
PersonMonthTargetActualVariance %
AJan1075150028%
BJan4109495017%
AFeb1084400073%
BFeb1000225056%

The pivot table has a slicer that filters by person which works great when only looking at one at a time. The issue I am having is that if I unfilter and select all on the slicer, I want target and actual to sum everything, but keep variance calculated by target and actual. So in the above example for January, I'm getting a variance of 28% + 17% = 45% rather than the 20% I want it to show. The variance % field is a calculated column in power pivot.

Is there any way for me to have the calculated field calculate on what is shown in the other columns rather than sum everything?

Percentages in Pivot Tables... Usually the order of operations gets fouled up which requires either a helper column in your original source, or the use of DAX/Power Pivot.
