    Unhappy Calculating percentage in Pivot Table

    Hi,
    I have a problem with my pivot table. I need a new column next to 2018 column that calculates the percentage growth of 2018 over 2017.
    I'm new to the pivot tables please help me with this as it's driving me crazy.

    I have attached the excel sheet.

    Update : I have asked the same question on mrexcel forum with the same subject and I've alerted them.

    Hello,
    There are many ways. I showed you one using auxiliary columns. This trend is a computational field in the pivot table (2018 / 2017-1).

    Rule 08: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question. If you have fewer than 10 posts here, you will not be able to post a link, but you must still tell us where else you have asked the question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    No further help to be offered, please, until the OP has complied with this request.

    I'm Sorry, I didn't know about that. Will be careful next time.
    I've asked the same question on mrExcel.
    I can't post the link because I'm below 10 posts. But I've alerted the other forum.
    Thank you.

    The source data table was altered in a way that sales of 2018 and 2017 were separated in 2 columns rather than having them in one. That way they appeared in the pivot table and could get the percentage by entering the formula as =SalesQty2018/SalesQty2017-1 in the "fileds,items and sets" under the Analyze tab under the pivot table options.
