The Collection Editor dialog displays pivot grid areas, fields and groups in a hierarchical view and allows you to add, remove and reorder fields and groups.
The Collection Editor allows you to move pivot grid fileds/groups between areas using drag and drop. The green arrow () indicates a group/area where the dragged item will be placed. The blue up arrow () indicates a position where the dragged item will be placed. The blue down arrow () indicates an item after which the dragged item will be placed.
