PivotTable: calculate % of column total

Hi all,

We’re trying to create a PivotTable where the cells show the numbers in a % of the column total.

Roughly something like this:

Category 1 Category 2 Category 3
2018 75% 50% 5%
2019 20% 30% 15%
2020 5% 20% 80%

However, we’re uncertain how we can calculate a total per category to use for the % calculation.

All ideas or tips are welcome!

Hi joosbuijs,

Thanks for reaching out. I am afraid that this is currently not possible. While


allows to calculate the %age with all cases as denominator, this cannot be limited and applied to specific columns.

If there is anything else we can help you with, please reach out any time.
