## % of Total Calculation

Hi all,

I am still relatively new to QV so bear with me! Set up a pivot tables based mostly on Product and month. Product is the row and month total sales is each column (has to be set up this way - for now).

Line 1:

PRODUCT     JAN     FEB     MAR...     YTD

Product A     \$10     \$20     \$17 etc through December and YTD

After the YTD column there should be a % of Total column. I would like this to do Product A / Total Revenue on Line 1 (Product A), Product B / Total Revenue on Line 2, etc.

Shouldn't be so hard to figure out, I wouldn't think! My challenge here is telling the expresion that Line 1 should only be Product A / Total, while Line 2 should be Product B / Total. A very basic excel template is shown to protect product names.

Hope that makes sense. Thank you very much!

If you add an expression in the pivot table with month pivoted to columns then it will be shown as a column for every value of month. It is possible to add a calculated dimension: num(aggr(sum(Revenue),Product)/sum(total Revenue),'##.# %') to show directly after the product column.

Thanks for the tip! I used =sum(Revenue)/sum (total Revenue). Your answer worked as well.
