<consolidation> (Consolidation Source)

Represents the description of the PivotCache source using multiple consolidation ranges. This element is used when the source of the PivotTable is a collection of ranges in the workbook. The ranges are specified in the <rangeSets> collection. The logic for how the application consolidates the data in the ranges is application-specific. For example, the application may consolidate data based on its position in the worksheet that the end-user specifies.
