    Well, day two and I have another issue dealing with the same data I have been using in another posting.

    I am working with a Pivot Table trying to sum a range of data by years. The data is entered as mm/yy. When I try to group the data together by year to get a sum for that year, the grouping changes the date, but incorrectly.

    For example:

    00
    01
    02
    99

    These dates change to:

    1900
    1901
    1902
    1999

    I have checked my cell content and the cells are Custom/mmdd.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks again,
    Jason

    You have to change the way two-digit years are interpreted. For Win98 or 2000 go to Control Panel|Regional Settings(Options)|Date and change the upper limit for the century.
