Actually it can be done in a Pivot Table alone - without the help of an Input Box (which I used in the previous suggestion above)....

Thanks!    Will this work for a Pivot table.  I should have been more specific.   Would I uncheck the Partial Sum box?

Sort of - just combine two Sheet Objects:  One Pivot Table and one Input Box so it could look like this:

0. In your data table you have to create an additional Grand Total row so you have a place holder

to calculate the Grand Total and get it to show in the Pivot Table.

It can be done like this in the load script:

CONCATENATE LOAD 'Grand Total' AS D1, '' AS D2, '' AS D2, '' AS D3, '' AS N AUTOGENERATE 1;

Place it after your main table so it will force concatenate an extra row to the main table.

1. Create A Pivot Table with the three dimensions D1, D2, D3

2. A single expression:

If(Dimensionality()=0,'',

If( D1 = 'Grand Total',

If( Dimensionality() > 1 , Null() , Sum(TOTAL N) )

, Sum(N)

)

)

3. Presentation tab select Subtotals: Subtotals on Top

4. Style tab: check the check-box Indent Mode and Use Only First Dimension Label

5. Layout tab: Border Width 0 pt

6. Caption remove check on Show Caption

7. For all dimensions check-mark on Supress When Value Is Null

8. On Expression tab - expand the expression on the left and then click Background Color

9. Fill in the Definition (expression): If( D1='Grand Total', RGB(210,210,255))

10. Click on the Text Format and press Edit button

11. Fill in the Definition (expression): If( D1='Grand Total', '<B>')

10. On Dimensions tab: expand the D1 dimension - click on Background Color and then press Edit button and press OK

11. Fill in the same definition as in step 9: If( D1='Grand Total', RGB(210,210,255))

12. click on Text Format and then press Edit button

13. Fill in the same expression as in step 11: If( D1='Grand Total', '<B>') and press OK

That is basically it ... although there are some additional cosmetic steps ... I leave it to you to figure out ...

Peter, I just got a chance to look at this - this is my second app that im doing.    I have multiple (10ish )amount columns that I need  a grand total on.    Im  not sure how I would change the above code for that.  Any suggestions.
