Default Pivot Tables - Variance and Variance %

Hi,

I am having trouble creating a pivot table to show variance between planned
vs actual units.
Currently my data is broken down into the following fields, Team, Type,
Month, Actual Units, Planned Units.

I would like the pivot table to show if the current teams are meeting their
monthly goals by comparing the planned vs actual units and showing the
percentage.

Team (all)
(page)
Month
Jan Feb March . . . . . (column)
Actual 100 110 90
Planned 90 110 100
Variance 10 0 -10
variance % 11% 0% -10%
(row)

Default Pivot Tables - Variance and Variance %

You can create calculated fields:

Select a cell in the pivot table
On the PivotTable toolbar, choose PivotTableFormulasCalculated Field
Type a name for the formula, e.g. Variance
Enter the formula, e.g.: =Actual -Planned
Click Close

Do the same for the Variance % calculated field, using the formula:
=(Actual-Planned)/Planned
