% of subtotal in pivot Table

We have several complex pivot tables and are trying to get a % of the
subtotal instead of the total.  We have infomation by state (the subtotal)
and want to know the % of dollars by state not the % of each bucket of total
of all the data.  If this possible.  We have tried calculated fields and
nothing seems to work.  Thanks for any ideas.

There's no option to calculate the percent of a subtotal in a pivot
table. You could do the calculation outside of the PivotTable.

Or, create a second pivot table, based on the first one, and use the %
Of Column calculation to show the state percentages. There's an example
here:

Thanks Debra.  I will try the second pivot table option.  I do wish they
could throw this in the next time they are updating, we would get a lot of
use out of it in my office.

lookup tables
ok, i have a value, 15.086, which i want to look up in a table of values which are all integers, shown below. 10 12 18 22 33 Mathematically, the closest value is 18. However, when i use VLOOKUP it tells me that 12 is the closest, because it searches down the list, and not up. Is there a way of searching up the list, or both up and down, in order to find the true closest value?

Pivot Charts
I have created Pie charts from the pivot tables in Excel and have selected my own colours on the pie charts. However, when I select Refresh Data from the pivot table menu, I loose all my formatting.

Subtotals in Pivot Tables
I've got a spreadsheet with a number of columns and I could do with putting a subtotal into a column in the middle of the data. Currently the columns are: Charged - Location - Size - Item Every line in my source data has a value in the Size column which is the same for each Location so that if I delete a line I don't end up without a Size for a Location.... but I want to be able to total the Size for each Charged and currently all I can do is get it to count every Size for every Item which gives me the wrong answer. So for instance if I've got data of: Charged - Customer A ...

New Tables & Queries Force me to Save As
