Two identical columns in pivot with different data

Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have on my issue here:


I have column ("times,") formatted as time (XX:XX:XX AM/PM) that has times in it. I have a second column ("times round,") that is referring to the first one and is ROUNDING (down) those times to 30 minutes (and formatted the same). I have a third column ("times pivot,") that is simply referencing the second, ("times round,") and is also formatted the same.

I am using the entire table that these three columns sit in with a pivot table, and am using the ("times pivot,") column in the pivot's column list. This gives me a list of all times, in 30 min increments, as column headers across the page.

There was one column labelled 1/1/00 that appeared at the end of the pivot headers (right before Grand Total), that showed data in that column - I realized that the format was wrong and once changed to time format, that column appeared as 12:00:00 AM.

Fine.

However, now I have TWO columns both listed as 12:00:00 AM. One in the far left position of the columns (where I would think a 24H progression starting with 12:00:00 AM would start), and the other 12:00:00 AM column is on the far right, right before grand total - Identical header times, but with different data showing in each.

I looked to filter the original table's column ("times pivot,") to see if the problem was there, but see nothing different to filter by, so it (must?) be happening in the pivot?

Any thoughts on what's happening so greatly appreciated, thanks!
