Hi @Bettyna 


just copy the Pivot table and paste it as values in an empty area:








Hi Martin,
thank you very much for your intention to help.

I have already done just that, unfortunately it didn't work. the formatting stayed the same and you can't delete lines, columns or make changes.

Best regards,



Try pasting into a range that overlaps neither with the rows nor with the columns of the pivot table, or paste into a different sheet.

Don't forget to paste as Values or as Values and Number Formatting.

Thanks a lot Hans, unfortunately, despite having followed the instructions, the data in the date column is still in the same wrong format. Thanks anyway for your support! and nothing happens when trying to change the format of this column:
