20.7.8.1 Calculation property
20.7.8.1 Calculation property
This is done by setting the Calculation property for the data field. (The property applies only to
data fields.) The possible values of this property are given by the following enum:
Enum XlPivotFieldCalculation
xlDifferenceFrom = 2
xlPercentOf = 3
xlPercentDifferenceFrom = 4
xlRunningTotal = 5
xlPercentOfRow = 6
xlPercentOfColumn = 7
xlPercentOfTotal = 8
xlIndex = 9
End Enum
As you can see from these constants, the idea is to replace the raw value in the data field by a type
of relative value. (We will see an example in a moment.)
Note that for some values of Calculation, additional information is required. In particular, if
Calculation is equal to xlDifferenceFrom , xlPercentDifferenceFrom , or
xlPercentOf , then we must specify the following two properties:
BaseField property
This property, which applies only to data fields, returns or sets the field upon which the
data field calculation is based.
BaseItem property
This property, which applies only to data fields, returns or sets the item in the base data
field used for the calculation.
20.7.8.2 Calculations not requiring a BaseField/BaseItem
The Calculation values that do not require a BaseField/BaseItem pair are:
xlRunningTotal
Keeps a running total of all values, going down the rows of the table.
xlPercentOfRow
Each cell is replaced by that cell's percentage of the sum of the values in that cell's row
(for the given data field).
xlPercentOfColumn
Each cell is replaced by that cell's percentage of the sum of the values in that cell's
column (for the given data field).
xlPercentOfTotal
