How do you pivot data where you do not need to sum data

In the attached spreadsheet I have data that I need to pivot by store number, but I do not need to sum values.  My initial thought was to group the data, but that wont work since I need to see the store results horizontally.  

Any thoughts

You mean "Sum of"?  You can just change that to a space followed by column header or use a period before the field name.  Pivots sum, average, count, and do other functions.  When you consolidate the pivot (say move Stores to the report filter, then it would SUM those).  In this instance, its only summing one row, so SUM is the value you're seeing - a sum of one element.

Data is just a descriptor of where the data resides in the pivot table.  You can click on the word Data and put a space there, to not show it.

This is just the way Pivot Tables work, but you can hide this - see attached:

Does that help?

here's a couple blogs on Pivot Tables:

just google "Pivot Table tutorial" to learn more about this very useful tool.

Again, there's no real SUM going on when all the combinations are laid out and unique in a Pivot table - its summing a single value.

Hope that helps!
