I have a column that sums the "rev" field.  The heading reads "Sum of rev".  For consistency with existing reports, I would like that to read "Total Revenue", but I can't find the property or event where I can change it.

Hello Joseph,

Thank you for writing.

If you want to change the text of the column's header, you can do that by setting the column's
HeaderText property. You can refer the online documentation regarding this.

I hope this helps.

All the best,

Let me follow up on this case. In the previous post, by mistake you was provided with information how to set the header text in RadGridView not in RadPivotGrid. 

To do that in RadPivotGrid you have to use the CustomName property of the PropertyAggregateDescriptor:
this.radPivotGrid1.AggregateDescriptions.Add(new PropertyAggregateDescription() { PropertyName = "Freight", AggregateFunction = AggregateFunctions.Sum, CustomName = "this is the custom header text" });

I hope this helps.
 
Kind regards,

If you want to do it on the fly based on the data then you need to use the 

GroupElementFormatting 

event.....

However, there seem to be no way to find out what group the e.GroupElement belongs to.....

stefan, any ideas here?

Hello Steven,

As you were informed in the other thread you asked this question in, you can access the group in the GroupElementFormatting event handler with the following line of code:
IGroup group = e.GroupElement.Data.Group;
