Use Multiple Value Fields
as a Column or Row Field
Problem: When I create a table with two or more Values fields, Excel has those fields stretch across the column fields. Is it possible to change to other layouts?
Strategy: Look for a virtual field in the Column Labels drop zone called ∑ Values. This field can be pivoted to another location. It starts out in the column labels:

Figure 774 You can drag Values to the row area.
