Click one of the buttons in the pivot table and hold the mouse button down. A special symbol will appear next to the mouse pointer.

By dragging the button to a different position in the same row you can alter the order of the columns. If you drag a button to the left edge of the table into the row headings area, you can change a column into a row.

In the Pivot Table dialog, you can drag a button to the Page Fields area to create a button and a listbox on top of the pivot table. The listbox can be used to filter the pivot table by the contents of the selected item. You can use drag-and-drop within the pivot table to use another page field as a filter.

To remove a button from the table, just drag it out of the pivot table. Release the mouse button when the mouse pointer positioned within the sheet has become a 'not allowed' icon. The button is deleted.

To edit the pivot table, click a cell inside the pivot table and open the context menu. In the context menu you find the command Edit Layout, which displays the Pivot Table dialog for the current pivot table.

In the pivot table, you can use drag-and-drop or cut/paste commands to rearrange the order of data fields.

You can assign custom display names to fields, field members, subtotals (with some restrictions), and grand totals inside pivot tables. A custom display name is assigned to an item by overwriting the original name with another name.
