Pivot table in Excel 2000 and the enable drill down feature

Posted by Nona Sloven on August 02, 2001 6:41 AM


I made a Pivot Table in Excel' 97 which I opened and then saved it in Excel 2000. Now my pivot table doesn't show me detail when I double clic a total as it did when it was in Excel' 97 although I have the "Enable drilldown" option in the Pivot Table options marked active (enabled). What's going on with this? I am doing anything wrong or Excel 2000 does not support the drill down feature for a table made in Excel' 97? Your help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Well, let's see either Microsoft has reduced the
functionality of PivotTables when it released
Excel 2000 or you're doing something wrong. I
think I'd put my money on "you're doing something
wrong". Unfortunately, you haven't given me a
clue as to what that "something" is>
