How to Group Dates Together in a Pivot Table
In Excel, you can use Pivot Tables to group together your tables of data by the categories you choose. This can help you to find meaningful information and spot the trends used when making decisions.
One of the ways that you can group your Excel data is by month if you have a Date field. By clicking inside your Pivot Table and going to the Analyse tab then clicking on Group Selection, you can choose how to group and view your data. But don't forget — when grouping by Month, data from every year will be grouped together, so if you want to see your data grouped by month and year, you must select both options.
