Subtotals of percentage column in Pivot table is not giving right results

Hi all, I have a pivot table where i do a count and decreasing count ( value and Percentage). When i do a subtotal, it just sums the value and not doing a percentage calculation. I also explored other options for total calculation such as sum, average, min and max but not a %calculation. Please let me know if there is a way to display % in subtotals.
Screenshot: In this case, i want to calculate % in subtotal whereas pivot table just sums up (3.00 + 1.57 = 4.57%)
Actual required value : ( 165/6954 = 2.49%)

Hello @Karthikeyan1, welcome to the QuickSight community!

How are you creating the percent value in your pivot table? If you build it in a calculated field, you may be able to get the expected value within your total. Since the pivot table is partitioned by date and category, you should be able to use a function that looks something like this:
Dec rate % = {Dec Count}/{total count}

And if that doesn’t look quite right, you could try adding in the sum aggregations as well to see if that helps:
Dec rate % = sum({Dec Count})/sum({total count})

In some scenarios adding or removing the aggregations for the fields can be beneficial. Let me know if that helps!
