Hi,

In creating a Pivot Table in Excel 2007 - I have a field that is numbered MC 1 -  MC15. However, when displayed in the pivot table, the ordering is 1, 10, 15, 2, 3.

Please advise.

Thank you.

Try to format the source field as number instead of text to see if it helps.

If its a text field then number is 01 instead of 1.

if the data is MC1, MC2, MC3.... to MC10 etc, then you need to change the source data to:

MC01, MC02, etc..

If you don't want to do that, create another field in your DATA, make it numeric and tied to the MC data field, and then sort the MC data by that numeric data field.

Or just drag and drop the items into the order you want manually.
