Even with the same Pivot Table field setup, you can achieve different views in your Pivot Table just by changing the Sum of Values field. Let us explore how to change sum view in label areas that we will get from tweaking the Pivot Table!
STEP 1: Here is our Pivot Table. Drag the Sales field to the Values area.
Notice we have the Sum of Values field added as well into the Columns area. This happens because we have more than one metric in our Values area.
STEP 2: Let us change the second Sum of Sales field into Count. Click on the arrow and select Value Field Settings
STEP 3: Select Count and click OK
STEP 4: Now that we have our count, drag the Sum of Values field to the Rows area and see what happens!
STEP 5: We have a completely different view. Now try moving the Sum of Values field above the SALES REGION field
And there you have the different views just by moving the Sum of Values field!
