I have a requirement for getting the earliest time a user has entered the office on a per day basis. Is there a pivot that can do the same. Attached is the sample excel sheet.

Please help.

@Rgonzo - not quite Snap!! Near enough for military work though!!

@GulfIT - both solutiuons have added a column to the data to separate the date from the "date & time" value. We have then formatted the resulting pivot differently.

Use MIN instead of Count in Pivot

Here's how:

1. On Column F use the formula: =TEXT(A2,"mmm-dd")
2. label this column as MonthDay
3. On Pivot Table settings, drop the User and MonthDay to Row Labels box
4. Then Drop the Date into the Values box, setting it from Count to Min
5. On the Pivot display, set the cell format of Date (Min of Date) to Time format.

Hope this helps
