Excel 2010 Pivot Table Design Question

I am attaching a spreadsheet with three tabs.  The two tabs named "PlanData" and "Prem" are the data tabs.  The tab named "Example" is an example using region "AK" of how I'd like to have the data presented. I need to have the Region name and the Premium information across the top by year.  So year will be the top column heading and then the subsidy for that year will be the second column heading.  Plan information will fall underneath each region/subsidy heading.  Other fields will end up being filters.  I have no idea how best to approach this.  I was thinking pivot tables and/or slicers but I can't seem to set the pivot table up so that the subsidies are coming in as column headers.  Any ideas?

What you are trying to do--i.e., show the value for one source field at a subtotal level, but the value of another source field at the detail level--is not possible in a PivotTable.

dkcoop03,

With respect, sometimes the right answer is "you can't", and when such is the case, it is rather unfair to penalize the Expert with a C grade.  Montgomery Scott couldn't change the laws of physics, and I cannot reprogram Excel :)
