Ch 16 Creating a Harvester Calculated Field

I have followed all of the steps to create the Harvester for % increase but my Total Margin with Selected Increase always calculates a 15% increase--so it is not "harvesting" the selected value. Any ideas?

[Selected Value]=MAX (Increase[Value])

[Total Margin with Selected Increase]=[Total Margin $] * (100 + [Selected Value])/100

Hi Kelly, sorry I missed your post Last week. Everything I can see looks correct. Is the slicer connected to the pivot table? My guess is that it is not.

Matt,
I had the same problem and your solution is correct - the pivot table was not connected. Why does this need to be done manually ?

If you first select a pivot table, then add a slicer (right click on the column in the field list and select "add as slicer") it will automatically be connected. If you have not selected the pivot table and you "insert slicer" from them menu, it will not be connected and you will have to connect it manually. It makes sense actually. If here are 5 pivots in a page and you add a slicer, which ones should be attached? It depends of course and his way you have control.

Hello, I have exactly the same problem shared by Kelly,
The slicers are ok, formulas as well, but the Total Margin with selected Increase is not getting updated although I change the Selected Value.
Is there any solution for this issue found?
Do appreciate the help.
