Pivot Table Running Sum %

Charlie Bamford

I can calculate a Running Sum in Pivot Tables. I can also insert a column
showing what percentage of the column total each line represents. However, I
can't work out how to show the running total %. My data is sorted so that
the largest value is at the top of the table. This represents 20% of the
total for that category i.e. the subtotal. The next row accounts for 14% of
the total. So, what I'd like to see is a column showing a cumulative %
against this second row of 34%. As we move down the table the percntage will
move towards 100%. After the subtotal the running % total will start again
from zero.

Add helper column to source data:
Thanks for this. I got this far myself but what I'd like to see is the cumulative percentage i.e. values 51.4%, 70.5%, 82.1% going down the % column. This will enable me to quickly see that the top 20 products account for 80% of the sales.

I can't seem to duplicate this on a different spreadsheet T_T
The formula seems to be designed to look at a specific range of cells?
I get an error message when I copy and paste the formula to another

Can someone please explain why this is so?

Thanks,
