Hi - hopefully, this is just a simple question, but I can't' find the answer!

I have a pivot table for which the data source is quite large. Is there any way to click on a cell in the pivot table and it take you to the original cell in the data source so that I can edit a mistake that I have noticed. e.g. the same company name has been misspelt, or a town, or anything!

At the moment I am copying from the pivot table and then searching my data source to find the erroneous entry - but wondered if there was a quicker way to edit the original data source and then go back and refresh the pivot table.

Many thanks.

It is not possible in Pivot Table. However you can do so with CTRL+{ on any formulas to get to the source of the same.
