Select the field in the pivot table, right click, and use the remove option.

Or select the pivot table.
Go to formulas on the pivot settings tab.
Select the field in the name box at the top.
Then edit the formula, or use the delete button.

How do I remove it (customized formula) from the PivotTable Fields?
Ejgil HedegaardCommented:
Not sure I understand what the problem is.

Above description explains how to delete or modify the formula field.

If you just don't want to see it in the pivot table, remove it like any other field in the pivot table.
In the field set up box, select it, hold down the left mouse button, drag it outside the box and drop it.
Or remove the mark in the field selection box at the top of the field set up box.
If you don't see the field selection, use the Fieldlist button on the ribbon.

thanks for hanging in here with me. in the image below what I am trying to do is remove from the Pivot Table Field the calculated field labeled Average Sales that I created. I've tried everything you suggested but I can't seem to get this removed from my PivotTable Field list.
average sales

That is the field list where you can deselect it to be shown in the pivot table.

To delete the field.
Select a cell in the column "Average sales" In the pivot table on the sheet.
It does not matter if it is the header, values or the grand total.
Right click, and on the menu that comes up, use the delete (or remove) option.

The other method is to use the same as where the pivot formulas are created, and delete the formula field there.

In case it is not a formula field, but a remain from a previous pivot set up, and the field is no longer in the data.
Right click any cell in the pivot table on the sheet.
Select Settings, and then select the Data tab.
In the selection box at the bottom for posts to keep, change to None.
Then refresh the pivot table if it does not automatically do it.
