Group or ungroup data in a PivotTable

Grouping data in a PivotTable can help you show a subset of data to analyze. For example, you may want to group an unwieldy list of dates or times (date and time fields in the PivotTable) into quarters and months, like this image...see the upper link.


Hope I was able to help you with this information.



I know I don't know anything (Socrates)



Please add some more details. In your image it looks like you might have two pivot tables next to each other (puts and calls). Is that the case?


What are you doing exactly when trying to ungroup? 


If you're able to upload and share the file, that will help.




Exactly the point you are putting,  please find attached the sheet, I need the dates in second Pivot (Call) like in first Pivot (Put) but the Ungroup feature is not working, or probably I'm using wrongly.







Thank you so much!!!


But the concern is the ungroup feature is not working or probably I'm using wrongly,  attaching the sheet for your reference.

If in query Call to change Date column data type on datetime it works.



In general, that's best practice to assign data type to each column before returning the query to grid or data model.



Please edit the Call query and change the data type of the Date column to Date/Time:




After you close and load the changes and refresh the pivot table, you will be able to group the date field:
