    I have created some very basic pivot tables in Excel 2011, when I share these files with Windows user either as xlsx or xls files they can open them and see the table but they can not adjust any of the drop downs.

    Is this a known problem, or is there something that I need to do differently.

    Thank you for any suggestions

    Have you tried going the other direction? Creating the tables in Excel 2003 and using them in 201x?

    yes - that seems to work no problem.

    Since I only have a mac and it appears that I can't share pivots that would greatly limit the usability of the pivots.
