Hello Experts!

    Quick question.  Is it possible to pivot off a worksheet that has a blank column within the data that's being pivoted?  For example here is the format of my worksheet below:

Column C contains a calendar pop-up macro that allows you to select the appropriate date, it then populates that date in column B.   When I try and pivot the those columns I can't because of column C.   Take column C out of the equation and I have no problem pivoting the data.  Is there a way to pivot the columns yet exclude column C?

                       A              B                            C                                  D

3                  Task       Date                       Blank Column            Time      <<< Header Row>>>
4              Lockouts   6/24/2013       <date macro button>    3:10:32    <h.mm.ss>
5              Testing    6/24/2013       <date macro button>      1:23:04     <h.mm.ss>
6
7
8
9
etc.
etc.
                                                                 
Thanks for your help!

Why not just put a header in that column... the header will go into your Field list, but you don't have to actually put it in the Pivot table.
