Pivot (Data Items "Count" vs "Sum")


K

Ken

Excel2003 ... Pivot Chart Data Items appears to default to "Count" ... I wish
this to be "Sum" ... Is there a way to do this before dragging Items from the
Pivot Table Field List to the "Drop Data Items Here" Section ... or ... must
I do this 1x1 after moving to "Drop Data Items Here" Section.

Also ... if there is another option ... I will certainly entertain it ... :)

Thanks ... Kha

Ken, you can't change the default settings for the data fields. If a
field contains blank cells, or cells with text, it will default to
COUNT. Otherwise, it will SUM.

There's a feature that changes all the data fields to SUM, or any other
summary function, in my pivot table add-in, that you can download here:
