I have several pivot tables running of a load of data. When I add data they all work fine until I add the 59th record and when I do this the pivot tables say that:

"excel cannpot make the changes because there are too many rows or column items. Drag at least one out of the pivot table.... goes on."

I try dragging coloumns out of some of my tables but this does not seem to work either - what is happeneinh, any ideas??

Following ths error message none of the pivots will refresh until I delete the 59th line!!! HElp

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

The Excel Help topic for "Microsoft Excel specifications" lists the limit for PivotTable items at 8,000. If you'll consult the Excel Help topic for "Elements of a PivotTable report" PivotTable items are highlighted -- you have too many of them.
