Hi, I have a simply count of cases in the values of my PP, and have fiscal year then fiscal quarter in the column label. I would like to add a SINGLE column or measure in the last column that annualizes the final year as I update it each quarter. However, if I create a measure it places a new column after every column I have in the pivot table.

Currently I have to build the entire pivot table with measurements to a achive this, but this requires that I manully update formula all the time. Plus I do not want to have to hide columns as this is a user interactive dashboard.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

You can use a set (Options->Fields, items & sets->Create a set based on columns) to hide the annualized measure in all (pivot) columns beside the last one. This should also work for a user interactive dashboard.

Cubeformulas would be another option if a pivot is not really needed. Using different time periods with Cubeformulas is easier than creating measures for that in a pivot.
