PivotTable reports are flexible tools that give users the ability to mine lots of data by reorienting that data into lists and tables. As a result, users can find the answers they need faster by dragging fields where they want them to be displayed.

To view and interact with PivotTable report views, you must have Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components installed on your computer. If Office 2003 Web Components is not installed on your computer, a red X appears when you try to view a PivotTable report, PivotChart report, or spreadsheet.

To obtain Help with PivotTable reports

  1. In Office Report View, on the Office Web Components toolbar, click Help.

    If the Help button does not appear on the Office Web Components toolbar, contact the IT Administrator and ask for the width of the report view to be increased.
  2. In Microsoft Office 2003 Chart Component Help, browse the table of contents for instructions, or click the Search tab to use full-text search.
