    Hi There,
    When trying to build a tabular Pivot table report with multiple dimensions and attributes it becomes necessary to have the field names of the Row Labels, above the columns where the data appears. The reason is that it otherwise becomes impossible to know what data each column represents in the report making the PivotGrid useless for simple tabular reports. You can see below an instance of the issue and the equivalent report using Excel Pivot tables.

    Attached are screenshots from Telerik PivotGrid(no row headers)  and Excel Pivot tables(with row headers).

    Can you help suggest a workaround to add row headers or is it scheduled in future release? Thanks!

    Hi Ke,

    We have included your feature request in our PITS - you can vote for it here. Our idea is to provide an easy way to modify RadPivotGrid without the usage of RadPivotFieldList. This will include the feature you've requested. Currently we do not have exact timeframe when we'll have this feature, but you can vote to raise its priority.

    Hopefully this helps. Feel free to contact us in case you have any problems or concerns.

    Hi,

    Agreed it would be a cool idea to manipulate a PivotGrid without the PivotFieldList, but the problem Ke mentions is more fundamental to the display of any PivotGrid in tabular format. If it is easier to implement just the display of the headers without allowing the user to graphically manipulate them inline, it would be a huge improvement.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hello John,

    I fully understand your concerns, but I want to assure you that the efforts to show headers is almost the same as the effort to have built-in way to control RadPivotGrid without RadPivotFieldList. That's why we've decided to include this feature in our to-do list, as showing the headers is in fact part of it.

    Thank you for sharing your opinion. Feel free to contact us if you have any other suggestions or concerns.

    Hi Telerik,

    Are there any updates or custom source codes to display row header?
