Excel Pivot Table Columns

The way pivot tables work now is when you add a Row Label it becomes the first column, then you add another field in becomes the second column as a subset of the 1st and so on
So for example

A  |  AB  |  ABC  |  ABCD

Is it possible to only have it relate to the first column

A  |  AB  |  AC  |  AD

Sorry, I know that isnt very clear hoping you understand what I mean.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're just referring to the way the fields are laid out, that can be changed by manipulating the layout.  Try the Tabular Form - you can find it on the Design tab, under Report Layout.

Otherwise, if you are looking for more than just formatting/layout help, you'll have to be more specific.  Think about what you want your table to show.  Perhaps your additional columns need to be added to the value field area rather than the row label area.

Provide more info and I can hopefully help!

Do you want subsequent Row fields to be in separate columns?

Right click on the Pivot Table and choose Pivot Table Options. On the Display Tab select the Classic View item.

Unfortunately, deselecting afterwards doesn't put the items back in one column.

Thanks
