Pivot Table Help - One Column as a % of Another

So, this is ridiculous but I can't figure out how to do it. I have a data set that set up like this:

I have the count of the "Won" column and I have the sum of the "Won" column in my pivot table, which effectively is showing me the total deals and the # of won deals. I need to add Sum/Count as a % to finish this out AND I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT AND GOOGLE IS NOT HELPFUL IN THE SLIGHTEST.

PLEASE

Edit: Here's a picture of my current pivot table

    If you go to Value Field Settings on a " Sum of Won " Column and change the tab to " Show Values As". there should be an option for " % Of " that will give you a " Base Field " and a " Base Item " to work with.

    Thanks for responding! That's one of the first things I tried. It doesn't push out %'s that are meaningful when I do it. I'll try to put up a sample data set for people to try and see if they can get something that makes more sense.

    I think you just want "Average of" won, if they're actually just binary. Then if you don't like decimal representation you can change the number format to Percentage in the "Show Values As" tab (but leave it as no calculation). Unless I am misunderstanding your request.

    I tried it out with with some mock data and MrTLicious is correct! If you add a 3rd column to the pivot table for " Won " and have it " Value Field Settings " as " Average " and then change the " Number Format " to " Percentage " you will get your result.
