    Why my Pivot Table Filter shows individual dates

    Hi Guys,

    I have a pivot table (based on a 50k rows of data), i put one column (date)
    in the Filter section of the pivot, but when i click the filter it shows individual
    dates unlike in regular excel file which groups the date all dates by months,
    year...this is my problem if i select the filter to choose only the dates i want
    to show, i had to individually pick them one by one.

    is there a way to make it look like a regular filter?


    Thanks,

    chico

    Anyone ever find an answer for this? I have been wondering this for years!
    It is so helpful, like in excel, when you can open that drop down box and see a filter for each year, rather than having to click on each one.

    Hi,

    If you right click on any of the dates and then GROUP them, then the dropdown will show those groups. If you haven't grouped the dates it will show them like you show above.
    One test is worth a thousand opinions.

    Thank you so much for the reply.
    I am not looking to group the data in my pivot table, only the drop down menu within the pivot table. I have attached my example. Thank you!

    Are you able to add another column to your Data?
    If so, add a column after Invoice Date, named "Year", and insert "=TEXT(A2,"YYYY)" and copy down (A2 is your date cell?)
    In your pivot table add the "Year" to the Report Filter and use this to show the Year(s) you want to view.
    (If you can attach a copy of your file it would help)
