Using Custom Filter in Excel pivot table

Hello,

I have Excel 2007 and am trying to determine if there is a way to create a custom filter on an Excel pivot table field.  For example, if my pivot table field is "Employee_Tenure", I'd like to be able to say "Between 5 and 10" instead of just manually selecting each value in the list of values for the field?

Not sure if there's a way to do this in Excel 2007, or in future versions?

Thanks!

Hi  Hpuser,

I might have the wrong end of the stick....

In the Pivot Table, click the drop down arrow in the Employee_Tenure field heading.
In the pop-up menu, click Value Filters, then click Between and set your criteria.
