Hi,

I have a large DB which I am using a PivotTable to get the information into a useable format however for some reason the usual Excel function whereby dates in a DB are grouped into Month and Year is not working and rather it is only grouping by individual days... file is attached and the date field is up the top part of the report filter

Thanks

Been there!  I use the =month function and create a new column that I use to sort by month and same for year.  

Here is a more clever way to do it.
