Description Markus Elfring 2019-06-11 20:33:41 UTC
The information “The pivot table must be based on an external source data that contains data hierarchies.” was published for the dialogue “Data field options”.
https://help.libreoffice.org/6.2/en-US/text/scalc/01/12090106.html

How do you think about to add a link for a helpful description in a corresponding document?

Should any more helpful information be read at this place than the deletion of a quotation character?

How would a link look like for the suggested improved functionality description according to the pivot table data source extension?
