    Remove 'Sum of' (XL 2003 SP2)

    I *think* I once found somewhere where you can change the default field names in a pivot table so that fields in the Data area are not always prefixed with "Sum of". However, I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it now. Assuming I wasn't dreaming, does anybody know how to do it?
    I do realise that field names can be changed after the fact - right now I programmatically select all fields in the Data area and replace all occurrences of "Sum of" with "". That leaves the space as a prefix before the field name, thereby making the new field names unique. That works fine, but if the user drags over an additional data field it will appear with a "Sum of" prefix.
    TIA

    As far as I know, you can't change the default behavior.

    Thanks. Sorry about the duplicate posting. I actually didn't receive an e-mail after you responded and I couldn't find my original post so thought I'd messed up.

    Guess I was dreaming about the Sum of prefixes being omitted....
