Its not entirely clear what you mean but assuming by 'field' you mean 'cell' click on the cell in the data and press f2 and you change the b to c by modifying the formula then refresh the pivot table

if you mean change which column is counted in the results of the pivot table then add column c to the 'values' section of the table and remove the column b count, or leave it there to count both

if you post an example and explain more clearly what you need then we may be able to help
