# 2.3 Relocating and Removing Subtotals Position in a Compact and Outline View; Practice Exercise 8 & 9 – Intro to Excel 2016 Pivot Tables

Practice Exercise 8: Relocating and Removing Subtotals Position in a Compact View
Still use data file: RANGE TO TABLE TO PIVOT TABLE2.
NOTE: If you are using the tabular View, you cannot relocate subtotals from the bottom to the top of a section. Only the compact and outline views will allow subtotals at the top of a section. Since only the Compact and Outline format views show subtotaling at the top by default, we will focus on those 2 views.
 STEP 1:Select any cell on the pivot table. Select the PivotTable Tools Design tab on the Ribbon (FIGURE 1). FIGURE 1
 STEP 2: From the Report Layout icon in the toolbar Layout group, select “Show in Compact Form” (FIGURE 2). FIGURE 2
 STEP 3: In the Ribbon Layout section, select the Subtotals icon on the left end of the Ribbon.  On the drop-down menu, select the choice, “ Show all Subtotals at Bottom of Group” (FIGURE 3). You have other choices with disposition of the Subtotals as shown on the graphic to the right. Other choices include: Do Not Show Subtotals ​Show all Subtotals at Top of Group (default for Compact & Outline Views) ​ FIGURE 3
Pivot table below in FIGURE 4 shows data in Compact View with Subtotals at Bottom.
FIGURE 4
Note: We will not show how to select Subtotaling at the top since that is the default when you select the Compact view.

Practice Exercise 9: Relocating and Removing Subtotals Position in an Outline View
NOTE: If you are using the tabular View, you cannot relocate subtotals from the bottom to the top of a section. Only the compact and outline views will allow subtotals at the top of a section. Since only the Compact and Outline format views show subtotaling at the top by default, we will focus on those 2 views.
Still use the file, RANGE TO TABLE TO PIVOT TABLE2.
STEP 1: Select any cell on the pivot table. Select the PivotTable Tools Design tab on the Ribbon (FIGURE 5).
