1. Assign a custom name to the grand total name ('Total Result' by default).
2. Save the file as xls.
3. Open it in Excel.
4. Refresh the pivot table.
5. The custom grand total name gets reset to Excel's default name 'Grand

OTOH, custom field name and field members names survive the refresh.  It's only
the grand total name that doesn't.  I haven't tested the subtotal names yet.

To reproduce this more easily, open the attached ods document and save it as Excel 97/XP/2003.  Open that saved file in Excel and refresh the pivot table.  The custom grand total name disappears and gets reset to 'Grand Total' (Excel's default).
