Pivot Table Frustration

I am having trouble using the Grouping function in my Pivot Table. I have other Pivot Tables where this works perfectly, but I'm wondering if there is some limitation I'm not aware of.

Specifically, I have dates across the top of my Pivot Table. I'm trying to group them into Months if at all possible. On the left side of the table I have 5 different headings.

Is that causing my problems?

thanks in advance for any help.
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

I am not sure what is causing your problem, but as a work around I suggest you add a column to your data that uses the End of Month formula =EOM(cellref,0). You can then use this column as the header in your pivot table.

Pretty sure you are getting the message 'Cannot group that selection'. This means that you either:-

a) have blanks in your source data field for dates
b) have text values in your source data field for dates

Find / Fix / Forget :)
