The word their is a little confusing. Does it mean that we have to compare individual salespersons or total sales?

English is a funny language. Different people interpret it differently. It would be nice if we have the required output as an image. It would help us to get the logic.

Considering the word their in legal language, I would mean Sales of Individual Salesperson w.r.t. their Sales in all years.

Thank you for your message.

I hope and believe that the task - " * Determine the percentage of sales made by each Manufacturer in each year, relative to their overall sales." is very straightforward.

With their is meant “Manfucaturers”

Is my workings correct then? Or should I change my method to match what others have done.

Here is my file.

Here is my solution. Although Conditional formatting was not asked, I found it necessary to easily read the data and provide insight, a little effort goes a long way. I also highlighted the most recent year and formatted based on 80/20 rule.

Presenting the required Pivot with the share of the Manufacturer’s sales over time.

I have cloned Pivot and created a Line Chart along with a Slicer to view the trend graphically.
