This operation can only be performed on fields that are actually on the PivotTable. So either a hierarchy containing the requested PivotField has to be in rows or columns of the PivotTable, or the attribute/relational field has to be in rows or columns of the PivotTable placed next to at least one other attribute/relational field. Also, the field being drilled to has to be in the same hierarchy or attribute chain. If these conditions are not met, a run-time error occurs.
