# How To Create Calculated Field Based Off Two Avg Fields In Pivot Table

Feb 12, 2014
I have a Pivot table that pulls the Avg of two fields for two months, see example below.

Avg Gross $ Avg Net $

Jan 2014 20 10

Feb 2014 30 20

sample 1.png

See sample attached.

The Avg Gross and Net is shown by going into the values and selecting "Summarized value by -> Average".

On the right side of this Pivot, what I wanted to do is to show a Avg Gross to Net $ in this pivot. So the formula should take "Avg Gross $" - "Avg Net $" = Avg Gross to Net $.

I am having trouble calculting this new field in the pivot table using a calculated field because the Calculated field pulls the variables from the existing field list and there isn't a field called "Avg Gross/Net"....I need to find a way to calculate the Avg Gross to Net into the Pivot table so I can pull a pivot graph out of it.

I am trying to use a summary field in the pivot table in a new calculated filed, but am unable to do so. Let me first describe the context so its easier to understand:

I have a collection of customer purchase records, which look like the following:

Customer Name, Customer ID, Purchase Amount, Activation Date

-------------------------------------------------------------

John , 100 , $150 , 2011-04-01 17:07:50.0

John , 100 , $250 , 2011-04-01 17:07:50.0

Paul , 101 , $125 , 2011-08-20 11:10:27.0

I have several 1000 records like the above and I need to create a summary report which looks like:

Customer Name, Total purchased, Activation date, Avg monthly purchase

-----------------------------------------------------------

John , $350 , 2011-04-01 , $175

The average monthly purhcase needs to be calculated based on the date of report generation. So in the case above, the average is calculated as of 2011-06-01.

In order to generate the report above, I created a pivot table with "Customer Name" in the "row labels" section and "Pruchase amount" and "Activation date" in the "values" section of the pivot table. When I try to calculate the "Avg Monthly Purchase", I'm running into the following problems:

1. The activation date is not being displayed as a date, but instead shows 0, when I set the value field settings to "Min"

2. I tried to create the "Avg Monthly Purchase" as a Calculated Field and then use the "Sum of Purchase Amount" field that the pivot table calculates. However, I'm unable to reference the "Sum of Purchase Amount" field in the calculated field.

I have a Table with 2 columns "Due Date" and "Completed Date". The pivot table from the table gives the count of each column. I want to have a calculated column giving the % complete, ie. "Count of Completed"/"Completed Date"*100. When I attempt to create this formula (using Pivot Table Options > Fields Items and Sets > Calculated field), I get a DivZero error, even though both columns are not zero. How do I create such a calculated column?

Any way to create a calculated field in an Excel 2010 pivot table that will find all the Transaction Types (Report Filter) with "transportation" in them and make the field Quantity 0 and leave all other quantities the same? I do not want the quantity of transportation added in twice and may not have the flexibility of adding a column to the raw data.

I used the formula below in a calculated field and it does not match the values using the added column to the data file.

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("*transportation*",'Transaction Type')),Quantity, 0)

I am trying to get the sum of Quantity field to equal the AdjQuantity field using a calculated Pivot field and not add a new column to the data.

I have fields "Day", "Posts", "Impressions" in a pivot table and I need to create a new metric for the average Impressions per Post. Ideally, this new metric should function just like the other fields in the pivot table, and not just static, because I'd like to break it out not just by Day, but also Time, etc.

Day

Count of Posts

Sum of Impressions

Impressions Per Post

Monday

I have a pivot table listing different company names in the first column under 'row labels' and there are calculated fields, a count and an average in columns B and C respectively. Is it possible to insert another field in column D that calculates the difference between values in column B and C (even though they are calculated fields themselves)?

Worksheet A contains two columns, that maps individual operations to their unitary cost:

COLUMN 1 = a list of operations

COLUMN 2 = the cost associated with each operation.

I can do a vlookup on this worksheet to retrieve the cost of each individual operation.

On another worksheet, I have a pivot table with a field that produces the sum of operations performed by type of operation, eg.

operation 1 was performed 5 times

operation 2 was performed 7 times

operation 3 was performed 4 times

I want to add a calculated field in the pivottable, that would output the total cost per operation. The formula for the calculated field in thepivot table would be

= operation * vlookup("name of operation","range for lookup table",2,0)

... unfortunately, "references, names and arrays are not supported in pivottable formulas".

Ihave a pivot table that takes data from a table, groups the duplicate items and adds their values up - so it shows just one entry for each item. I now want to add a calculated field in there so that I can divide one of the fields into another.

I have a pivot table with 2 row filters (dept and name) and then three columns - Year 1, Year 2. I need to add a calculated field inbetween Year 1 and 2 to show the variance in dollars from ( Year1-Year2) as well as an additonal a column that shows the percentage change between the tw o years . I know I can copy this over and add formuals in Excel but I need to retain the features of the pivot tables due to the 2 row filters?

I have a data that consists of months, forecast and actual.

I've created a pivot table where; months is on the row, forecast and actual is on the values

I wanted to know the percentages between forecast and actual (forecast / actual) to see how it perform each month.

How do I go about inserting a pre-defined named called "percentages" on pivot table with calculated field or calculated item on pivot table itself?

I have and excel sheet that pulls data from an external source (ServiceNow) via MS Query.

From the exported data, I have the following:

Date opened (MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM)

Date closed (MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM)

calendar_stc (this exports in seconds, such as 136) (this equals date closed minus date opened for each record)

assignment group

From this export, I'm trying to make a pivot table to show the average calendar_stc per assignment group, per month, per year; but in hours, not seconds.

I thought this was an easy process, create pivot to group row data by years then by months. Then add in assignment group to to the Rows as well. From there, I added to the values section of the pivot the calendar_stc. The default, of course, is to sum each row. But I need the average so I switched it to average. Now it is showing the correct average calendar_stc in seconds per group. To make it hours, I figured I could add in a calculated field. To do that I added the formula of =calendar_stc/60/60 for the calculated field. When I hit okay, it's giving me the SUM in hours for each row. Modifying the field settings to average does not change the numbers. So I went back into the formula and modified =average(calendar_stc/60/60). And that is not working either.

Here is an example to show the math with my formula.

I am trying to create a dynamic pivote table that can be update using a value in a cell. I can get everything updating and working correctly except I am unable to remove the one calculated feild from my pivot table. I am able to remove all other fields without problem. Code below: (lines 13 and 14 is the code that i cant get to work)

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim dt As String

Dim dt2 As String

On Error Resume Next

dt = Sheets("Executive Summery").Range("M1")

I am trying to calculate a ratio for Hours per Ticket by month. I have a pivot table that COUNTS tickets and SUMS hours per month. I was hoping to create a calculated field to the jist of COUNT(Tickets) / SUM(Hours), but this does not work because calculated fields aggregate data.... I was hoping to keep it all in a pivot table so that I can still use slicers.

Pivot Table:

Rows: Years, Months

Values: Tickets (Count), Hours (Sum)

Month

Tickets (count)

Hours(sum)

Throughput (Calculated)

I believe that I am finally getting the hang of pivot tables and VBA ... pretty nice. Now for my latest frustration - calculated fields.

I have a pivot table created which compares two years of data. The problem seems to be that this data is from the same data field (PINSAL) even though it shows in two columns (year 2007 and year 2008).

1 - I need to subtract the 2007 figure (column C) from the 2008 figure (column D) in a calculated field called DollarVariance

2 - I need to divide DollarVariance into the 2007 figure to create a calculated field called PercentVariance

This seems easy to do if I had two different variables used to create the 2007 and the 2008 data but it is the same datafield. Can I use column letter? Can I use the column name assigned by the pivot routine (12 - 2007 and 12 - 2008)?

How to incorporate a calculated field for a sub group.

Here's what the data in the table looks like.

Competitive

Managed

ID

A

B

C

A

B

C

[Code] .....

I am looking to get 3 calculated fields onto the Right hand side that would essentially be the following Formula

=IF(L4"",IFERROR(D4/H4,"n/a"),"")

Thus,

1st Column

=IF(Competitive(A)"",IFERROR(Competitive(A)/Managed(A),"n/a"),"")

2nd Column

=IF(Competitive(B)"",IFERROR(Competitive(B)/Managed(B),"n/a"),"")

3rd Column

=IF(Competitive(C)"",IFERROR(Competitive(C)/Managed(C),"n/a"),"")

The other option would be how to set up conditional formatting to always take on the appearance of Column K of the pivot table. Thus, this calculated section would always appear as though a part of the pivot table and would adjust based on any pivot table items being expanded and collapsed.

I have a set of sales data and need to create a run rate which is simply = Total Sales/Selling Day

Selling day changes most days.

I put the calculation into my pivot data but it's summing up, (instead on 12 I get 720) so I changed this to Average so I get the right figure in the Pivot but when I then use this field, it doesn't use the Average amount, it uses the summed figure.

So what I need is Total Sales/X

X = Cell Reference

I'm having an issue getting the correct results from a calculated field in a pivot table in Excel 2007.

In column A I have "Business Name", in B I have a sum of the amount of lines a customer has, and C is a MAX of the number of employees the customer has at their location.

In one example I have a business with sum 50 lines and max 30 employees but when I try to make the calculated field 50/30 (should equal 166%) i get 9.2% instead.

The reason appears to be because there are 18 types of lines the customer has and 18 x max 30 = 540 and 50/540 is 9.2%. In the attached example it's all the same business location so the total number of employees (30) is the same for each row and each row in the raw data is a set of lines with similar features.

I attached an example. CalcFieldProblem.xlsx

Can I create a calculated field based upon the count of data items in fields as opposed to sums. My data is confidential so here is a dummy example:

Can I take the count of Cars per individual salesmen and divide by the total count of vehicles? Ultimately, I will need to code this into VBA once I know if it can be done.

Vehicles l salesman

car1 Bob

car2 Kelly

car3 Bob

car4 Bob

car5 Tim

car6 Tim

car7 John

With this result:

Salseman l Percentage of Vehicles

Bob 43%

John 14%

Kelly 14%

Tim 29%

In the "Pivot Table Field List" I have the option to "Choose fields to add to report". I have a large number of fields that I want to choose and "Add to Values" - so it is tedious to select each item individually.My question: Is there any possible way select multiple fields at the same time? e.g.

a "select all" option, orhighlighting a range of the available fields (either by dragging or holding the shift key)I've looked / tried above with no luck.

Any Excel Add-Ins out there that might address this? I'm fearing not since my searches have come up empty.

I have two or more fields of data, where parts of them are auto populated based on inputs from elsewhere. That part i have working fine, however the problem arises in taking that information and displaying it as a Bill of Materials list on another tab in my excel file. I want to take the information, and only display it in the BOM tab if that piece of information is being used (ie item count field not being 0). I know how to do that part in a rather simple format, however i'd prefer to make it so that when i have the list, and a certain item isn't used then its not included in the BOM, and an empty space is not left behind. I would prefer this to be all be done automatically by a formula if possible instead of just having to resort to sorting the table every time the tool is being used.

Is this even possible in excel, A quick example doc is attached, shows 2 example fields. i'd like to take the information from those 2 fields. and somehow create a single list, with a single heading along the top, with all row containing a 0 "Unit Count" to be omitted entirely from the list, and not have a blank space where the item should be. Keep in mind these fields may be greater than 2, and may not be position one after the other in a strait down line.

My Pivot Table data section contains calculated fields and normal fields...both have sub and grand totals. The calculated items are correct but. the calculated field totals are incorrect. The normal field totals are correct. The calculated field totals are ... the True total multiplied by the number of items!

I created a nice excel file with some cohort analysis regarding the number of months customers of different cohorts stay with a company. Basically I do a little manipulation on the raw sign-up data sheet and then run a pivot on it.

I want to see the cohorts in two ways:

1. number of customers.

2. $ from customers.

I have the first 1 and I want to get the second one without going through the same procedure again (i.e. manipulating the raw data). In order to get the $ terms, all I need is to multiply a $ column in each row in the columns that indicate the number of months that passed since a customer joined (see the attached example file please). When I try to do it with calculated fields in the pivot table, Excel multiplies the total number of customers with total $ from them all put together, which is of course wrong.

Any way to achieve what I want without having to created another data sheet just for $ terms?

I believe the attached excel file: dummy_for_cohort.xlsx

I'm getting an error message in when I attempt to create a pivot table calculated field formula using the SUMIF function. My questions are (A) Can SUMIF be used in a pivot table calculated field and (B) If Yes, then why am I getting an error message? To expand more on my second question(B). My scenerio is as follows.

I need to compute the Total Inventory Value (Quantity X Cost) of all our inventory that is aged over 60 days. I have a "Total Value" field that gives me the inventory value at a sku level. also have a "Days Since Last Receipt" (DSLR) field that gives the Days since the Inventory was last Received at a sku level. For Example:

SKU A --Total Value=$100 -- DSLR=50

SKU B --Total Value=$75 -- DSLR =70

SKU C --Total Value=$40 -- DSLR =80

Using the above scenerio and example I tried to execute this calculated field formula: =SUMIF(DSLR,">60",Total Value). However I get an formula error message.

I have my raw data in one Worksheet and have made multiple pivot tables based off this data. Since I needed to have the same calculated fields in all these Pivot Tables, I used to simply duplicate the pivot table sheet and edit the pivots to create a new table.

Now, I'm trying to create a new pivot table from scratch, by selecting the base data table and going to "Insert Pivot Table". However I see the same Calculated Fields and upon removing, the field is removed from all other Pivot Tables.
