    Retrieve original field name

    Hello,

    I am currently working on a bunch of pivot tables where many of the fields have changed names (like Sum of Expenses has become ExpTotal).

    How can I retrieve the original name of the fields, so I can match them/look them up in/to the source data?

    Grtz Bart

    May need more info? But if you 'Refresh All' on the pivot table, all the names will be updated

    Hi queuesef,

    If I "Refresh All" the customized names persist.
    Sorry, can't share the files.

    ThnX queuesef,

    That was a useful suggestion.

    Running the code made it clear to me that it was not a customized field, so I looked a bit deeper and found it as a calculated field.
    Hence I could not find it in the source data.

    So, problem solved, thanks to your help.

    GrtZ, Bart
