### Excel Facts

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.

If you have the month names as a field choice you can highlight Jan, Feb and March...right click > group and outline

this will consolidate the 3 rows/columns as needed, repeat for other quarters. You can rename the subseqent group right in the cells to Quarter 1 etc.

Then remove the month field and you will see summary by quarters. (or leave it to see the subtotals. Double click themonth field and click "none" for subtotals and you should be fine.

I'm not sure of how to do this. My order dates are listed as 1/1/06, 01/16/06, 1/25/06. I highlighted the items and when i right clicked there was no group ans outline.

You can create a new field in the pivot table as an alternate method, but you may have to open the full menu to see the group and outline option

In the pivot table toolbar there is a drop down menu where you can create calculated field

in the feild you can use this formula (assumes the date field is named "Date", you will have to change it)

=IF(month(date)<4, "QTR1",IF(Month(Date)<7, "QTR2",IF(Month(Date)<11,"QTR3","QTR4")))

And hit okay. A new field will be added to your pivot table showing quarters as per the formula.

See the pivot table help topics, they are quite useful
