#### How can I Show data as a % of Sub Group in a Pivot Table

```I want to show a column of data (% of City) as a % of a sub group
total.  Here's my example of how the pivot table should look:

State   City       Carrier    Sq Yards    % of City (Sq Yards2)
Alabama
Birmingham
Carrier 1   10          20%
Carrier 2   20          40%
Carrier 3   10          20%
Carrier 4   10          20%
Birmingham Total       50         100%
Mobile
Carrier 1   10          25%
Carrier 2   10          25%
Carrier 3   10          25%
Carrier 4   10          25%
Mobile Total           40         100%

I can't get the last column to calculate.  The last column(Sq Yards2)
is simply a duplicate of Sq Yards, however, it is displayed as a % of
column.  I don't want Column to show, I want a % of City shown.  How
can I do this in a pivot table ??

```You can add columns to your data table, and calculate the total for each
state, and the percent of state total for each row. For example, with
your data in cells A1:D200 --

State    City        Carrier    Sq Yards
Alabama  Birmingham  Carrier 1    10

In cell E1, type:  PctCity
In cell E2, type:  =D2/SUMIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$44,B2,\$D\$2:\$D\$44)

Copy the formulas down to row 200

Change the Pivot table source to include the new column
Refresh the pivot table
Add the PctCity to the Data area
Format the field as Percentage

Note: State total and Grand Total will show an incorrect amount in this
column.

```hey you can do it as part of the pivot table if you wish
by adding the value field to the pivot table again and double clicking
on it, you then have a host of options on how to calculate the data

Make table truncates text concatenated using fnConcatenate
I have a MakeTable query which uses the fnConcatenate( ) function to merge a bunch of information into a single field.

I know I could create the base table and import the data from my query into that table, but I would prefer to make this table on the fly, and then delete it when I am done with it.
