I have following columns in excel.

column A                 Column B        Column C              ColumnD
Type                          Number          Dscription             Author
enhancement           12345                test1                     xyz
enhancement           67891                test2                    Abc
Maintenance            14785                 test3                    DDX
project                     54896                 test4                    UYT
project                     25879                 test5                    MNU

Now in the pivot table, I have type and description to be in row labels. and I need 2 additional columns to just show Number and Author column in pivot as well without any operations. If I put number and author in the row labels they all get merged in one column (column A in the pivot table) which is not good and I do not want the report filter either.

so basically what we need is to have type and desctiption in column A in the pivot (row labels) and in column B in pivot table Number and Column C in pivot Author ( I do not need any specific operation like count or sum) I just want the data to show as it is.

How can this be done?

Thanks much,

Hi,
Do you use Excel 2007? I think you need the classic pivot table layout. Right click on the pivot, choose Pivot Table Options / Display / Classic Pivot Table Layout.
If you put all the fields you mentioned to row header, and eliminate the subtotals (right click on the field header, and check out the subtutal), you will have what you need.
Cheers,
Kris
