Pivot Table with Average Values and Sum Totals

New Contributor

Hi there, 


I have an issue displaying information in my pivot table where I have parent companies and their subsidiaries. 


The revenue reported is at the Parent Company level so has been entered onto each subsidiary line. I can, therefore, average the values in the Pivot Table but the totals also show as averages. I've attached two screenshots which show an example of the data and the pivot table where the values have been averaged. 


Ideally, I'd like my Pivot Table to show averages in the value cells and sums in the total cells. I've also attached this rough example. 


Any help would be very much appreciated. 


Kind regards,

That is a bad table.


In the attached file the solutions A and B.

Solution A uses a helper column with an amended revenue.

Solution B splits the data in two tables.

Thanks so much. I think I'll go with the first option. 


Very much appreciated!
