Sort the Power Pivot measures (and fields) in the PivotTable Fields

When designing your pivot tables based on a Power Pivot model you typically add fields and measures continuously, and in the measure list they will by default list then be sorted by the order you have created them – and that is not always the best.

Luckily you can set sort order for the Pivot table fields – by clicking the tool button just above the fields list

By default is set to “Sort in Data Source Order” – but you can change that to A-Z – and then all measures – and fields in dimensions will be sort alphabetically making it somewhat easier to find.
