I am trying to group a series of individual dates in a pivot table to arrange a month-centric view of data. I read the lesson in the book on grouping by date( Lesson 5-18), but when I highlight a date and righ-click to group it, I get a box on the screen that indicates that the data I selected can't be grouped. Why can't it be grouped, and more importantly, how can I make it so that I can group it? Thanks.
