# Calculating Percent Change in a Pivot Table

Options

My goal is to have the variance shown as a percent change from Last Year's Revenue in the pivot table. Is there a way to do this?

What does your beastmode look like?

to calculate this you can do one of the following.

((sum(rev this year) / sum(rev last year)) * 100)-100

or

((sum(rev this year) - sum(rev last year)) / sum(rev last year) and then format your column as a %

or

((sum(rev this year) - sum(rev last year)) / sum(rev last year) *100

Can you expand on this a bit more? It seems you already have variance as a % in your pivot table?

This is the percentage of the total variance for the column. I am looking for the percentage change between This year and last year's revenue totals. For this example, it should be -15%, not 1.7%. The variance column that is displayed is only a placeholder.
