    Pivot is providing different data than what exists in raw data. Why?

    Someone sent me a question about their pivot table. They pulled in the field "Budget Category" and one of the lines shows CRS. CRS doesn't exist as a budget category. If you double click on the amount, the data shows the Budget Category is Information Services.

    I am completely lost. This is a self contained pivot meaning there isn't a tab of data. I can access that data by doubling clicking on the amounts.

    Any idea?

    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.
