PivotTable with Show Report Filter Pages option


I’m trying to create pivottable with ‘show report filter pages’ option using aspose cells for .net. I have no problems with creating pivottable or adding report filters but I can’t find any reference how to enable ‘show report filter pages’ option on created pivottable. Is it possible?
I’m attaching screen of location where I can find this option in Excel.

Thanks in advice.


Thanks for your query.

Please send us two sample files with and without “Show Report Filter Pages” which are created using Excel for our reference. We will analyze these files and provide our feedback to create similar files using Aspose.Cells.

Sure thing.
The examples I’m providing may not have much sense because I’ve filled them with mock data but certainly they are showing what functionality I’m intrested in.

I have analyzed both the files but am afraid to share that I could not mark difference between the two files. When I open both the files in Excel and follow the steps mentioned in the image, I get same report filter page. Please explain in detail what is the difference between the two files and what is your expected behavior of the file which you want to create using Aspose.Cells.


Provided workbooks should differ in a number of worksheets.
What this options do is split every possible value of report filter to be in separate worksheet.
So for example if I had filter on ‘Position’ and in my data I would have three distinct positions (A,B,C) then as a result I would get 3 addinational worksheets (named A,B,C) which are the same pivot table but with preselected (A, B or C respectively).
