How do I display a pivot table with row headings horizontally across the top ?

Hi Experts,

I am creating a pivot table in which I want to present the row headings as column headings, with the associated data in separate columns like the image I've attached.

However, when I drag the fields into the 'Row Labels' pane of the Pivot Table Field List the data only indents a little, and all in the same column.

I know the fields can be separated out into adjoining columns as I've seen it elsewhere.

Regards
Phil

In the table settings, switch to classic layout and switch off column totals.
Then the fields Region, Country and Company will be displayed in separate columns when inserted as row labels.
No of Employees must be a value, otherwise you don't get the sum.

Remove subtotals from each field = set to none.
Then you have a table that is close to what you want.
See attached file.
