Hi,

I want to create a column wherein I would like to get the variance between 2 years.
Current data:
            2001     2002   2003
Amount1       10        5     15
Amount2       5         2     10       
Amount3       5         3     5


This is what I want
              2001  Var(02vs01)   2002  Var03vs02)    2003
Amount1        10     -50%          5       200%      15
Amount2        5      -60%          2       400%      10       
Amount3        5      -40%          3       67%        5

thank you in advance for your help.

Select Pivot table view. Click on Year column in Pivot table view and select "Add New Item". Then, enter the formula: ('2002' - '2001') * 100 and put as Heading 'Var(02vs01)'.
