If you have a formula for "total committed", based on any of the
fields in the pivot cache, you can insert a calculated field.
Otherwise, it's best to add this total to the source data, if
possible. If you're using an external data source, you may be able to
use a formula in your SQL to generate the additional column. If the
data is pulling into a worksheet in the same workbook, I'd insert the
calculated column there.
