As you can see from the attached I have a PivotTable which currently has 4 month columns and I have had to add these individually.

What I want to know is, is there a way to add all months at once, set their formatting once, and have grand totals for each row at the right end of that pivottable because right now that is proving impossible.

I would like to be able to sort and filter by dates (being the months) also and then the table update automatically.

Basically I just dont understand whats going on as I have used dates with PivotTables a million times and never have I had to add the months individually like this and then have no ability to sort, group and filter those dates (ie. sometimes I group into quarters) as well as have no ability to total the values within the date periods.

Please help!
