To answer your question - no you cannot have more than one label filter or more than one value filter on a single pivot.
Raystafarian did not understand you question..
- yes - clicking the "allow multiple filters" check-box will allow ONE label and ONE value filter BUT not two of the same type of filter.
- yes - of course you can go ahead and select "multiple items" but that is not the label or value filtering you are looking for
Filter on the table for the first label filter, then copy and paste the filtered table into a new table and then pivot on the new data set(table).. not a best option but will certainly get the job done
IF you can work through an if or statement this will work great for your purpose and you can have as many label filters as your heart desires.
Basically you would create an additional column on your data set that will return whether or not the label contains the value/string you are looking for, then you can pivot using the new column.
First the basic formula with one criteria:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Apple",A1)),"Contains","Does not Contain")
SEARCH() function searches a cell for the "apple" text and returns the character number where that text begins within the cell
ISNUMBER() function will return a true or false value if the search is successful
eg1. if the search function is not successful an error will return(not a number) so the
ISNUMBER() function will be false.
eg2. if search function is successful a number will be returned, so the
ISNUMBER() function will be true
IF() statement will return the personalized message "Contains" if true and "Does not Contain" if false
Now the formula with multiple criteria
=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Apple",A2)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("banana",A2))),"Contains","Does not Contain")
just throw an or statement before your first logic, which is
ISNUMBER(SEARCH()) and so on for as many more criteria as you want
