Pivot Table help

I have a column with a yes or no value. Is there way to have a pivot table display the count on yes and the count on no? Seems simple enough but I'm having trouble figuring out how. When I do one it shows the no value and tells me there is 1103 on the count but that's not true. There are 1103 total of the no and yes responses.

You need to put the column in the row field and in the data field.

In the row and the value? If so I do. I'm attaching a couple of screen shots.

On the row field is it possible you have deselected 'Yes', because what you've done looks ok to me?

Post a workbook?

StephenJR's solution should work.

I don't think "Yes" was deselected, otherwise it would show a filter icon in the drop arrow button next to "Row Labels".

Try doing a PivotTable refresh and see if that works.

It was the refresh! That's how I had it from the beginning but yes never showed up until I said refresh all under my pivot table options. Thank you!
