Supposing you have created a pivot table as below screenshot shown. And I will take the pivot table as example to calculate the weighted average price of each fruit in the pivot table.

1. First of all, add a helper column of Amount in the source data.
Insert a blank column in the source data, type Amount as column name, next type =D2*E2 in the first cell of this helper column, and finally drag the AutoFill Handle to fill the whole column. See screenshot:

2. Select any cell in the pivot table to activate the PivotTable Tools, and then click Analyze (or Options) > Refresh. See screenshot:

3. Go ahead to click Analyze > Fields, Items, & Sets > Calculated Field. See screenshot:

      Hi Meeeee,
      What kinds of conditions will you add? In most cases, you can update your source table, refresh the PivotTable, and then add calculated fields.
