#### Pivot table calculated field using MAX of another field

```How do I get a calculated field to calculate using the MAX of another field?

Say I have the following:

SIZE     COLOR     Max of Qty    Sum of Cost     Sum of QtyXCost
large      blue            8                    5                      40
green          2                    4                      8
red             10                  6                      60
large Total               10                 15                     300*
medium green           4                 11                      44
red              5                   8                      40
medium Total           5                  19                     171*

I want the calculated field QtyXCost to calculate using the MAX of Qty.

*At the total lines, I want 300 to be 150, 171 should be 95.

This is a simple example. In reality, I have more row fields and therefore
many more nested levels of grouped totals.

```The subtotals and total for a calculated field will always be a sum.
Perhaps you could calculate the QtyXCost outside of the pivot table.

```Using your sample pivot table, if the 8 is in cell C5, and 5 is in cell
D5, then in cell F5, enter the formula:  =C5*D5

Copy down to the end of the pivot table, and it would multiply each
MaxUnits by SumQty.

Macro for Sharepoint List and another Table?? Same # records?
