    Default Pivot Table Calculated Column Not Working

    I have data that lists transactions with the product name, revenue, and cost. I make a pivot table, no problem. I try to add a calculated field to the table: Profit=Revenue-Cost. The answer I get treats the revenues numbers as if they are all 0's. The original data is formatted as numbers. What am I missing? Thank you so much!

    In the first post, show the type of machine (PC / Mac) and the Office version you are working on
    I don't use vba in any form!
