Pivot table calculation and sort
I am attaching a data base ( COLUMN A1 - M507
) and the related pivot table ( on the same worksheet (O1 - AB28)and in the last two columns I wrote 2 formulas. column y "% of Total" and column z "RANKING".
Question 1 - could I make these calculations within the Pivot table Itself or can I only make this out side of the pivot table? If so How is this accomplished?
Question 2 - Could I sort the pivot table by the RANKING in a descending order? If so How is this accomplished?

Question 1: You can add the field again and choose to display it as a % of column total, but it will repeat for all columns. If you have Power Pivot you can create a measure for this and for the rank calculation.
Question 2: No you can't sort by that ranking because it would involve splitting up the parent fields and a pivot table doesn't do that.Regards,
