    OK, I know I can start this with Alt D P and create using multiple ranges or sheets, and one page field create for each range.
    Each range has the same columnar data.

    Only problem is the new pivot table adds the total sales, and I'd like to display sales separately.
    example

    Customer Jan Sales 2012 Jan Sales 2013 2013 Sales YTD

    OK, I renamed the headings differently in each range, I changed Jan in both to Jan 13 and Jan 12 in the other, so the colums show up separately in pivot table

    But now I've noticed the new pivot has only a few fields,
    Row, Column, Value, Page 1

    Any ideas, anyone? I am stumped.

    My web search has revealed the only real way to do this is when the fields are identical for both data worksheets.

    If you have a sample with dummy data, why not attach it? You might get more perople to understand it.
    I think you answered your own question but who knows somebody may have another idea.
    Also create a sheet with what and how you want it to show up, helps paint the picture.
