    Calculating “Share Of” Category / Row & Subtotal in Pivot Table in Excel

    I want to have one column in a pivot table that is as a calculated item from the total count to display the share of total in that category. I am able to 'hack' pivot tables in a way that I get a total count for a field (which consists of variable values) and can calculate the share for a category. Custom field: count / (total_count / count). Total_count contains the total count for each category on each row of the input data.

    Now, I am but having issues to calculate the share for a subtotal. As the hack is specifically designed to aid in calculating the share of a category, it breaks for the subtotal.

    Highlighted in red the fields that are incorrect:


    Below is a mock-up concept with correct output:


    But the end result needs to be 'simple', so it can be broken down by each week:


    The difference between 2 weeks can be a simple formula outside the pivot table, or can probably be a calculated item. That is not in focus here.

    Thought starters are welcome! What is the direction for a proper, unhacked Excel method?

    Hello Aldert and Welcome to Excel Forum.
    While I am not sure that I can help with what you are attempting, I can suggest that it will be easier for someone to help if you could upload a desensitized sample of the workbook from which the screen shots are taken.
