    Hi Airedale360,

    The problem appears to be the way your data is structured!

    The Processor column needs a Helper Column - the Total column is really irrelevant for the Pivot Table.

    Assuming column A is empty, use this formula: =IF(B2="",A1,B2) and copy down (assuming you start with row 2). This will ensure that you do
    not have blanks for Sally, Jane Joe and Tony. Name this column whatever you like, but use THIS column in your Pivot Table instead of the Processor column.

    This should solve your problem.

    I hope this helps, please let me know!
