## Calculating percentages within same scope

 Author Message michielbijnen Mr or Mrs. 500 Group: General Forum Members Points: 549 Visits: 145 Hi,I have a report with a grouping on the GL-account-category and simply shows the sum(amount) for that category.One of the categories is "Net Sales".What I would like to achieve is the sum(amount) for all other individual categories as a percentage of the sum(amount) of category "Net Sales". The point is that all categories reside in the same grouping (scope).So, as an example, the percentages that I would like to have:Category "Net Sales": 100% (= 100k)Category 2: 60% (asuming that sum(amount) of this category is 60k; divided by 100k = 60%)Category 3: 25% (sum(amount) = 25k; divided by 100k = 25%)Category 4: 5% (sum(amount) = 5k; divided by 100k = 5%)etc. etc.Hopefully someone can help me out.Thanks!
