Hi

If I have this table:

NameType
amount
fooRed
2​
barRed
4​
fizBlue
3​
buzBlue
5​
fooOrange
1​
barOrange
3​
fizGreen
5​
buzGreen
3​


I can produce this pivot table

Sum of amountColumn Labels
Row Labels
Blue
Green
Orange
Red
Grand Total
bar
3​
4​
7​
buz
5​
3​
8​
fiz
3​
5​
8​
foo
1​
2​
3​
Grand Total
8​
8​
4​
6​
26​


But what I want to do is produce a pivot table that looks like this:

sum of blue & green​
sum of orange & red​
Total​
bar
0​
7​
7​
buz
8​
0​
8​
fiz
8​
0​
8​
foo
0​
3​
3​
Grand Total
16​
10​
26​

So I need some sort of calculated field that calculates from a single column of the source data

Is this possible??

my actual data set as 392000 rows and 43 columns and I'm using Excel 2013

Hi,

This you can do with a simple grouping. Simply select "Green and Blue" columns, then via the mouse right click use "Group". Then rename this in the pivot. Repeat for the original Orange and Red labels. Finally remove "Type" from the pivot and leave "Type2", which is the grouping you made.
