Reading Date as in the data sheet for Pivot Table
Hi

I have a Table as follows

==============================================
17-05-2019 Friday 7072.00 9605.00 565.00 11287.00
18-05-2019 Saturday 7213.00 9879.00 523.00 13233.00
19-05-2019 Sunday 12587.00 17009.00 1962.00 15220.00
20-05-2019 Monday 23811.00 7019.00 358.00 4622.00
21-05-2019 Tuesday 28595.00 11132.00 486.00 3151.00
22-05-2019 Wednesday 4503.00 7858.00 470.00 6494.00
23-05-2019 Thursday 8995.00 9936.00 491.00 5837.00
24-05-2019 Friday 16742.00 11241.00 1415.00 5290.00
25-05-2019 Saturday 9268.00 9128.00 552.00 8568.00
26-05-2019 Sunday 11971.00 15342.00 627.00 15390.00
27-05-2019 Monday 6532.00 8524.00 1182.00 7718.00
28-05-2019 Tuesday 10389.00 9153.00 605.00 4952.00
29-05-2019 Wednesday 2756.00 11361.00 565.00 7760.00
30-05-2019 Thursday 11397.00 11334.00 773.00 6202.00
31-05-2019 Friday 8976.00 10054.00 480.00 5947.00
01-06-2019 Saturday 14241.00 13978.00 418.00 12184.00

Day is a formal to bring the date field with the date format "dddd". Therefore displayed as the day

I would like to create a pivot table with the Day wise summary where the total of Amounts need to be displayed as a summary for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and so on.

Expecting a Pivot as below

DAY SUM OF AMOUNT1
=====================
Sunday Sum of Amount1
Monday Sum of Amount1
Tuesday Sum of Amount1
Wednesday Sum of Amount1

The issue I am facing is with the Day field. System is reading the same as "dd/mm/yyyy" and not as "dddd" for the data does not sorted/summarised by day.

Welcome to the forum! :)

Will you please attach a sample Excel workbook? We are not able to work with or manipulate a picture of one and nobody wants to have to recreate your data from scratch.

1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

2. Make sure that your desired results are also shown (mock up the results manually).

3. Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first (e.g. names, addresses, E-mails, etc.).

4. Try to avoid using merged cells as they cause lots of problems.

Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment, so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

Please pay particular attention to point 2 (above): without an idea of your intended outcomes, it is often very difficult to offer appropriate advice. :)

Adding an attachment with sample data.
One sheet with DATA and another sheet with the Pivot result that I am getting and the expected results.
Hope this bring clarity for my requirement.

Sorry about the multiple post... This is my first post in this forum .....

Have updated the file with more comments in the sheet "PIVOT" to bring clarity on my requirement.

Hope this helps. Please ignore the previous attachment.

Thanks

Try modifying cell D4 on the DATA sheet to read: =TEXT(C4,"dddd")
Drag the fill handle down to cell D36
Select a cell in the pivot table (columns B:F on the PIVOT sheet) and select refresh.
Let us know if you have any questions.
