Hi,

As far as I know you can not eliminate the details and see only the total in a Pivot table.
One possibility is to hide the columns.
Or you can build another pivot table next to the original using only the Sum of Test only in values, without adding DateOfWork into column headers. Then leave out the Sum of Test from the original pivot. This way you see the details in the original pivot and the totals in the new one.
Hope it helps. Maybe would be good to see an example file.

Cheers,
Kris
