Half a month of data from Pivot Table

I have a Pivot Table that summarizes data by Month and Year.
I would like to see a "snap shot" of the data at "mid month".
Currently I compare the actual data to the projected data on a monthly basis with the "GetPivotData" function. Is there a way so I can compare the data for half of the month?
I want to get the data from the 1st to the 15th, and the 15th to the end of the month, be that either the 30th or the 31st (or even the 28th or 29th) depending upon the month.
Is there an easy way to modify the Pivot Table or the "GetPivotData" function to see the half month totals?

I have tried to "group" the date data by "days", but that doesn't get me what I want for the "half month"...

Thanks.

Not that I know of within the pivot chart functionallity itself.

What I would do with this situation is to set up a helper cell in your pivot range somewhere with the following formula:

=IF(DAY(A2)<=15,"First Half","Second Half")

And then after you group your days into months, put this below it in the rows section of your pivot.

Hope that helps.
