Use Autofilter With A Pivot Table
April 12, 2021 - by Bill Jelen
Challenge: You’ve created a pivot table to summarize sales by customer. You now want to filter those results to show only the customers with sales between $20,000 and $30,000. The AutoFilter command is grayed out for pivot tables.
Solution: You can fool Excel into turning on the AutoFilter dropdowns by starting your selection one cell to the right of the pivot table headings. In Figure 67, select cell E4. Hold down the Shift key and press the left arrow key four times to select E4:A4.
