Hi Experts,

    I need to group only selection of rows (few rows only, not all rows) in a pivot table in excel 2010  . Please walk me through the steps of how to achieve this ?

Please Note : I don't want grouping of all the rows. I know grouping of all rows is possible.

Thanks,

Srk.

Select the row headers (to select multiple non-contiguous row headers, hold Ctrl down while selecting with the mouse), right-click one of the headers and choose Group.

Voilà

Hi Thomas,

    I understand  abd know how to achieve the grouping.  But  I don't want to group all the rows. My requirement is to group only selection of few rows , not all of them. I am unable to achieve this , the rows which I don't want to group are going in to a default group which I don't want.

Regards,
Srk

If you only group part of the rows, the non-group rows will be created as a single group each. You can then remove the first row field to only show the groups rather than the original values, have you tried that?

Maybe a sample file showing how you see it, and how you'd want to see it would help.
