Excel 2007 -Pivottable how to use same field for Report Filter and Row Label

I need to use the same field for a PivotTable Report Filter and Row Label.  In other words I want to be able to select a filter from a list of row values and display the selected values as rows in my Pivottable.  I tried created a calculated field with the value of the field used for the filter, but I get an error message stating that this field can't be used in a pivot area.  The pivot area will not let me put the same field in both the filter and row label areas.   Is there any other way to do this?

Why can't you just filter it in the Row field area?

See attached image - I need to use the description field in row labels in both the report filter and row labels areas.  Because of formatting limitations I have the PivotTable Option "display field captions and drop downs" turned off.  You are correct that it could be filtered at the row level if this option were enabled.

Then I think you might have to duplicate the column in the source data.
