Limitations for Calculated Field formulas in Pivot Tables


B

Brandon_469

Is there a list or even a guideline on what excel formulas are allowed when
creating a Calculated Field in Pivot Tables?

For example, I want to use the TODAY() function in the pivot table, but I
keep receiving errors. Is there a way to use a function that operates like
the TODAY or NOW functions within the Calculated Fields?

Thanks,
Brandon

Volatile functions are not allowed. The power of pivot tables and cubes in
general is that they pre-aggregate the values so that when you request the
data it does not need to perform any mathematical functions. Since volatile
functions are constantly changing they are not allowed.
