Hi All,

i am not sure how to describe my problem so bare with me please.
i have worksheet that is used to provide data in a Pivot.
i the data is a column overdue which tell if a training has to be taken. however this training may be added multiple times to a user and therefor can be overdue multiple times. in the pivot is counted as multiple overdues.
i would like to make a report form the pivot table based on unique overdues.

I only see that they are not all unique when i open a detailed overview of overdues in pivottable

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

posted here is part of the data sheet. as you can see there are 3 courses that are all over due. in the pivot it would show all 3 but in fact it is only 1 course 3 times
