How to consolidate multiple worksheets to a PivotTable in Excel 2007

I'm trying to consolidate two worksheets to a pivot table, all in the same workbook. I use the pivot table wizard and select consolidate from multiple sources. I enter the active cells from worksheet1 and then worksheet2 and select finish.  The worksheets have some common columns (same name) which I don't want duplicates of in the Pivot.
I'm not able to drag from the field list to the report (col,row,val) like you would for a pivottable based on a single worksheet.  Am I missing a step?  It seems that this should be a standard feature because the wizard supports data from multiple sources.

Sadly, the consolidate version of the pivot table is a lot lot lot less flexible than the single page version, so you're not going to get what you need.
An option is to consolidate the data first through MS Query with a UNION query and use that as a pivot table, but it's a cumbersome solution.
Another option is to first run a macro to consolidate your data before pivoting.

Sorry,
