Description jmadero 2011-01-25 21:00:06 UTC
This is a feature request to add the ability to include the same column multiple
times in the "Data Fields" section of the Data Pilot. As of now this is not
allowed and you are forced to choose one method of displaying the data in the
data pilot. Here is a scenario where this would be very helpful:

You have a spreadsheet for expenditures, one column is "category" the other is
"amount". Now you want a data pilot that will 

a. show the total expenditures in each category
b. Show the percent of total which each category represents

Currently this is not possible in data pilot, you'd have to either make two data
pilots or make two columns with identical information and then use one for the
sum, the other for the percent. 

Thank you

maybe i misunderstood, but multiple selections can 
be done with (strg) + mouse click, here sum, min and average
are calculated

Sometimes....I apologize for wasting your time and thanks for that. Not enough
people use data pilot even though it's so functional so it's hard to get the
information out there -- excellent. Thanks for the hard work

I actually was mistaken. This is not what I'm looking for. What I'm looking for
is the following:

Be able to use a single Function but under "Type" use several different types.
I've included a screenshot to show what I'm talking about. In data pilot if you
click on the "more" button, you'll see Displayed Values, so you can choose
multiple functions but not multiple types within a single function (such as
count or sum)
