Hello,

I thought there was an easy way to group dates in a pivot table for example by year and then month and even weeks.  In the attached, I do not see how this can be done.   I thought I remembered seeing within the field list, for any date, it would furterh drill down to years, months, weeks even.  I do not see this functionality in the attached.  

How can I Group the attached pivot by year and then month?  I would then want to be able to filter for anyone of those criteria.

thank you for the help.  attached is in 2010.

the problem caused blocking the grouping was the column on the source data that had blank cells and also some cells with text.

I replaced blank and text with 1/1/1930  a dummy date and then refresh the pivot table and then filtered out the dummy date and then grouping worked , please see attachment.


please note that for a pivot to work the grouping of dates,  the source data needs Not to be blank nor any text.
