Hello

Having trouble with a pivot table drawing from 805,800 lines of data, it handles 5 fields options but has a slight melt down when I request 6.

Trying to understand what the limitations are please e.g. is it the volume/value of data in the initial 5 fields or something else

Laptop specs: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-2520m CPU @2.50Ghz, file is on the company network drive.

Appreciate any guidance.

Thanks Liz
