    Calculated Fields in a Pivot Table when 'Fields' appear over Muliple Lines

    I have a Pivot Table where the 'Fields' appear over multiple lines, e.g. M1 Estimated Spend 000s appears as

    M1
    Estimated
    Spend
    000s

    I want to add some 'calculated fields' to give me specific totals and every thing I've tried to date just gives be an unhelpful message telling me there is an error in the formula. Basically if I wanted to say total the first three months estimated spend (see sample attached), I'd assumed this would work, but it doesn't

    Note: There is a space both before M1, M2, M3 etc., and at the end of each line before the CHAR(10) line return apart from the last line where there is no space after 000s.

    Is it me doing something wrong or is it simply not possible to achieve this when using line breaks in the field names?

    I think the filename for your attachment may be too long. When I try to download it Windows tells me it can't find the file.

    If you attach a sample of your workbook it will be easier to find a solution. Remember to remove/replace sensitive data before uploading the file. Look here if you need help with attachments:

    Hi HangMan,

    As I've understood , you want to create sum of 3 following mounts (as stated in your formula M1, M2, M3), and to get the data from the pivot table.
    To recreate the text "M1 Estimated Spend 000s", use the below formula.

    = "M1" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s"
    Before CHAR(10) you have empty space.
    Also, the text you need to have it in quotation marks.


    To get value from pivot table, you need to use the "GETPIVOTDATA" function.


    If you want to extract the total sum for the 3 month, use below formula:
    =GETPIVOTDATA("M1" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s",$B$3) + GETPIVOTDATA("M2" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s",$B$3) + GETPIVOTDATA("M3" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s",$B$3)

    If you want to get the sum for particular area (e.g.: East), use the below formula:
    =GETPIVOTDATA("M1" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s",Pivot!$B$3,"Area","East") + GETPIVOTDATA("M2" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s",Pivot!$B$3,"Area","East") + GETPIVOTDATA("M3" & " " & CHAR(10) & "Estimated" & " "& CHAR(10) & "Spend"& " " & CHAR(10) & "000s",Pivot!$B$3,"Area","East")
