I am trying to reproduce spreadsheets created at work in Excel 2002 in Libreoffice 3.6 under Linux and can't do it because pivottables and charts are not functionally compatible. When I create the pivottable and drag the fields to the layout I have the following issues: At field add time I cannot rename the field nor can I specify the format of the field if I want a different format to the source (Excel allows both at drag time). I am not allowed to rename at any time the fields in the page section of the layout (Excel allows this at drag time). There is no pivottable toolbar, hence there is no way to add calculated fields to the pivottable (Excel provides this functionality along with additional functionality available from the toolbar). I cannot click on a column in the data portion of the pivottable and drag the column to a new location in the data portion (Excel allows this, and I have a spreadsheet where this functionality is mandatory for the data to be displayed from month to month as a new months worth of data is automatically added to the table). When I create a chart and define 2 data series to be plotted, Calc appears to not allow me to display each series as a different chart type (Excel allows this by plotting both series using the same chart type, then by clicking on the series excel allows it to be changed from say a bar chart to a line chart, and allows this to be done for any subsequently added series).

What is the possibility of getting this functionality in calc so that it can be used as a functional replacement for older versions of excel.
