     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).

1) Pivot functions, calculated pivot fields and pivot charts are not implemented as they used to be implemented in Excel 8 (1997).
2) You can not edit the pivot labels.
3) All pivot cell formats are bound to auto-generated cell styles except for the number formats which are taken from the source data.

You've got to use MS Excel or find your own work-arounds. For calculated fields I use to use pivots from databases or database queries instead of pivots.
