Excel Macro and Pivot Table, Part II

My boss asked the following for a macro that creates a pivot table in Excel.  "Is it possible to get 1st login and last log out of each day on the line to the right of totals for each day?"  What adds complexity is that there might not be the same # of rows each time for the pivot table, depending on how many employees actually worked that day.  See attachments:  one is the pivot table and one has the macro within it.  Thanks.

P.S. - And why is the first file so big?  Is it the Pivot table?

Is this what you had in mind:
Sub BuildPivot()
   Dim pc As PivotCache
   Dim PT As PivotTable
   Set pc = ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
            "'" & ActiveSheet.Name & "'!" & Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1))
   Set PT = pc.CreatePivotTable(TableDestination:=ActiveSheet.Range("K3"), TableName:="PivotTable1", _
                                DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion10)
   With PT
      With .PivotFields("Userid")
         .Orientation = xlRowField
         .Position = 1
      End With
      With .PivotFields("Day")
         .Orientation = xlRowField
         .Position = 2
      End With
      .AddDataField .PivotFields("Hours"), "Total Hours", xlSum
      .AddDataField .PivotFields("Time"), "Earliest Time", xlMin
      With .DataPivotField
         .Orientation = xlColumnField
         .Position = 1
      End With
      .AddDataField .PivotFields("Time"), "Latest Time", xlMax
      .PivotFields("Total Hours").NumberFormat = "hh:mm"
      .PivotFields("Earliest Time").NumberFormat = "hh:mm"
      .PivotFields("Latest Time").NumberFormat = "hh:mm"
   End With
End Sub
