Excel - pivot table - filter on the Filter field

Please offer if there is a way to set a filter with a formula for the Filter value in a pivot table rather than manually having to check on each value.

Thank you.

exp vg,

You can't set it up with formula though..However if you are interested you can set it up with a macro and by change of any values..let me know if you are interested...Please provide your sample file..I can help you to create a macro for you which does what you are looking for..

This seems like a lot of work - I was hoping there was an easier way. At this point, I am limiting my work to basic functions in Excel.

exp vg,

I understand your limitations but unfortunately you can't limit the pivot filter to a formula..You need to play arround with it manually or by macros..

Again it's not a lot of work..Here is a link for you to look at which does what you are looking for programmatically..
