Hello experts,

I have a table to data, basically, I check monthly returns from various departments, and i want to be able to produce a table that will display on a given the month the recertification dates (AA-AD) or if nothing is present remain blank per domain.  I have highlighted in red the heading i want to include.

I thought a pivot table would do this but I cant get it to display dates.
I've attached an example which hopefully explains a little better.

Thank you for your help example10.xlsx

    Change the field settings to Average (or Min or Max) and set the number format to a date format. See attached.
    I have assumed you only have one date per cell in the pivot table.
