Pivot Table Calculates the Difference in Grand Total


D

DaveB

I have a pivot table that contains three columns of data: FY 2008, FY 2009
and Grand Total. I would like to display the difference between FY 2008 and
FY 2009 in the Grand Total column rather than the default sum of FY 2008 and
FY 2009. Can someone help? Thanks!

Hi Dave

Drag the field containing the data to the data area a second Time in the
layout section.
Double click the field>show data as>Difference from>Year>FY2008>OK>Finish
Drag the Data button on the PT and drop on Total so you get the values side
by side instead of under each other.
Right click on PT>Table Options>uncheck Grand Total by Row

You will still have a blank column for the FY2008 difference (as there is no
difference).
You can choose to hide this column on the sheet if you wish.
Title your fields to headings that are appropriate.
