We warmly welcome,
Please help in adding to LibreOffice 4.3 or subsequent versions such thing as a calculated field in a PivotTable.
How and to whom would pull such a request, on a forum written something about masters Kohei Yoshida Markus Mohrhard or whether it is the right person?
I am really missing the functionality that exists in Office, basically I have a feeling that this area is a little less developed.
For any information in advance thank you very much.
You should not mark your own bug as new, as it needs further investigate.
Set to UNCONFIRMED.
I see the lack and set importance for this report as enhanbcement and Platform to All.
I am also really missing the functionnality "calculated field" in a pivot table.
I am using Excel a lot at the office, and each time I build a pivot table (on big data files), I add many calculated fields. It is versatile, easy to use and make the pivot table a more powerful calculating tool.
Now, I have to switch to LO and I really appreciate working with Calc except that I can not add any calculated field in the pivot table. I have to add columns outside the pivot table to let perform the calculations that should be done inside it. This way, this specific tool is less powerfull and flexible.
I have searched a lot on forums but did not find any solution.
Is there an extension available to add this functionnality for the pivot tables or would it be possible that someone develops such an extension?
Thanks a lot,
I also would really like this functionality implemented.
Is there a way to vote this up?
The GETPIVOTDATA function does not what I need (or I am unable to use it) and a suggestion at the question list for manipulating the data before the pivot table is made does not work either.
A simple calculated field works, but does not move with an changed of the pivot table.
I have asked the question here:
Still not available in LibreOffice 5.
I would be happy to contribute in anyway on request.
At this point setting up a development environment maybe a step to far, but I am willing to try with the proper help.
Changed title summary and added to "Pivot-Table" meta bug.
So that should be in addition to what currently is offered in the dialog "Data Field" that opens when one double clicks a data field in the layout part of the design window?

Calculated Field Example and Design Suggestion
I have prepared the attached example spreadsheet file to show what a calculated field is.
I also suggested a simple layout of the dialogs.
(In reply to Kevin Suo from comment #8)
Anyone who is interested in this feature please complement the design suggestion.
Hi to all,
I thinks it's necessary the functionality "calculated field" in a pivot table.
How can we do to suggest to do this funcionality to developers?
Other functionality in pivot ( less import) are the different layout of pivot, like you can do in Excel.
I also think that a new functionality to create a "calculated field" in a pivot table will be very useful.
I think it's a great suggestion to developers.
Thanks a lot,
It'll be regretful that one can compute a discrete Fourier transform in the upcoming LO 6.3 (tdf 74664), but not a simple weight of a field in a pivot table (example salesValues/sum of sales Values)
Additionnaly, I do not see this MAJOR missing feature reported in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Feature_Comparison:_LibreOffice_-_Microsoft_Office
P.S. This functionality already exist in Excel 2000
