    The figures under GRAND TOTAL for both columns and rows is the AVERAGE, not a SUM.

    Re: Getting correct grand totals when using calculated field in pivot table

    In your pivot Table, under Values, you have "Sum of Field1"
    This should be "Sum of Volume"
    Field1 is your calculated field with Volume/Contracts, but Contracts has not been included in the Pivot Table.

    Grand Total calculation is correct but is perhaps not what you wish:
    Total volume = 73
    Total contracts = 700
    73 / 700 = 0.104285714285714 as pivot table shows.
