I'm trying to sort by grand total descending in my pivot table and cannot get it to work.

Column A is a product description
Columns B-L are Months (Periods 1 through 11, populated by a count)
Column M is grand total

Can someone help me?

thanks,

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Dbrasel,
A simple way is to click on a cell in the Grand Total column on the Pivot table, then click the Z-A sort button on the standard toolbar.
