#### Pivot issue #2

```Greetings everyone,

I am just not able to get the pivot to give me % of column subtotals

When I do it with one variable I get the right numbers like this :

2007	2008	2009
A	John	80%	75%	60%
Pat	20%	25%	40%

Now when I add another variable B I get it as

2007	2008	2009
A	John	20%	20%	15%
Pat	20%	30%	20%
B	Emily	30%	30%	30%
Jane	30%	20%	35%

I would like to have A and B to have their own percentages and not the
percentage of the entire column.  Would really appreciate if any one
could point out where I am missing out or bluntly help me get over
this :)

basically like this

2007	2008	2009
A	John	80%	75%	60%
Pat	20%	25%	40%
B	Emily	45%	60%	25%
Jane	55%	40%	75%

Which shows a percentage of A and B separately.

regards
SD

One possible solution is:

format your pivot table field for numbers as percentage with 0
decimals
show data as normal
format your pivot table field for variables with automatic subtotals

```Hi,

We don't have access to the subtotal calculations in the pivot table, so the
only way to handle this is to use formulas in the spreadsheet.
