Use the Add method to add a calculated item to a PivotTable field. A calculated item uses a formula to calculate its value based on values of other items in the same field where the calculated item resides.

The following code demonstrates how to create two calculated items to calculate total sales for each region.

Dim worksheet As Worksheet = workbook.Worksheets("Report10")
workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = worksheet

' Access the pivot table by its name in the collection.
Dim pivotTable As PivotTable = worksheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1")

' Access the pivot field by its name in the collection.
Dim field As PivotField = pivotTable.Fields("State")

' Add calculated items to the "State" field.
field.CalculatedItems.Add("=Arizona+California+Colorado", "West Total")
field.CalculatedItems.Add("=Illinois+Kansas+Wisconsin", "Midwest Total")
