Allowing User To Pick CSV File To Source Pivot Table

Feb 21, 2012

I am sourcing data for my pivot table from an csv file. The ultimate task I am trying to accomplish is to allow the user upon hitting a button to select the file that would feed the pivot table. The code below is what I got by linking the initial source file to the pivot table. As I can see the source file named "4 Port.csv" is listed in the SQL-like statement. How do I go about allowing the user to pick the file from the "open file" dialog?

Code:
With ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlExternal)
.Connection = Array(Array( _
"ODBC;DefaultDir=C:Documents and Settings2301Desktop;Driver={Microsoft Text Driver (*.txt; *.csv)};DriverId=27;FIL=text;MaxBufferS" _

[Code].....

Change Pivot Table Source File

Jun 12, 2007

I have a workbook with a number of pivot tables as well as the source data for each pivot table. Some of the source data sheets needed to be deleted so now if I try to refresh the corresponding pivot table I get "Connot open pivot table source file '[Std Mthly Rpt.xls]Report_2'". I recreated the source file again and would like to know if I can link the pivot table to this new source file or do I need to create a new pivot table??

Runtime Error 1004 - Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File

Nov 14, 2012

I am trying to adapt a macro to run on data that is consistently in the same format but the data does change, the macro needs to run over and over on new excel workbooks, dynamic range ? instead of a set source ?

Sheets.Add
ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
"weekly71012!R1C1:R9379C30", Version:=xlPivotTableVersion14). _
CreatePivotTable TableDestination:="Sheet1!R3C1", TableName:="PivotTable1" _
, DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion14

I am sure this is the problem as i initially created the macro using weekly71012 excel file however i just want it to run on every file i pull it off?

Macro To Pick Up A Range Of Date To Filter On In A Pivot Table

Jun 25, 2008

When using a Pivot Table I regularly filter on known data specific to me i.e. WBS codes.

Column A contains the WBS Codes which can be as many a 1000, however, I only need to filter out the 10 or so I require, and currently I uncheck all the records and manually scroll through the list to check the ones I require.

In order to speed things up I recorded a macro which works fine, however, If I need to check any new codes I would have to record the macro again, as I tried to edit the Macro and all it does is to un check all the other codes I don't need.

Is it possible to create a Macro that picks up a range of data that is then used to filter on. (i.e. only the records I require)

Column Shows In Pivot Table But Doesn't In Source Table?

Oct 5, 2011

There is pivot table for some reason the last column (YEAccts), which sums all the other columns values is exluding the 1st column for some reason. This "YEAccts" shows up fine in the pivot table "field list". And I followed the source for this and it's a table in a different tab that pulls data from an access query connection.

The name of the column that is summing up the rest of the columns is "YEAccts", but for the life of me I can't seem to find where this column is in the source table tab or even in the access query where the data is being pulled from.

How to find this "YEAccts" column? Also, why would it exclude not summing up the data in the first column?

Pivot Table Retains Old Source Data In Addition To New Source Data

Sep 7, 2006

I have a report that was created for 2005 that contains two worksheets: a "source data" worksheet and a " pivot table" worksheet. I cleared out the 2005 data in the "source data" worksheet and replaced it with 2006 data...after this I refreshed the Pivot Table and everything seemed fine. When looking at the file size I noticed that it was almost twice its original size....upon further investigation I found that the Pivot Table was internally holding onto the old source data (the "Show" functionality of the rows/columns in the table lists the 2005 row/column headers as well as the 2006 headers....even though no data from 2005 is shown in the Pivot Table).

Does anyone know how to purge the old data from the internal Pivot Table memory?

I hope this is enough information....let me know if you need more.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Jon

Pivot Table Source List

Jun 19, 2008

I'm trying to create a Pivot table with various columns comparing information of executives from various Private Equity Firms. Some of the additional columns are Industry Specialty, Harvard Grad Year, My companies contact, etc . . .

The goal is to allow me to then query this information so if I wanted to see all Bain Capital employees who graduated with an MBA in 1990 and their specialty.

My question comes in trying to set up my source list for the data under Industry Specialty and my companies Contact. Is there a way I can set a value for these cells and mark them as an "AND" in the source if there are multiple contacts or industries that one of the Private equity executives is linked too, that would then allow them to be displayed as so when I create the pivot table?

Attached is .zip for further clarification.

Pivot Table Data Source

A co-worker of mine set up a pivot table using data saved on an external data source on a shared drive. I would like to create a similar pivot table myself, linked to his pivot table so when he gets updated data, my pivot table also will update accordingly. My question has to do with the pivot table data source. How do I copy the connection?

Pivot Table - Dynamic Source Data

Sep 26, 2011

I am using pivot tables/charts for drilldown reporting. After running a complex macro to consolidate multiple reports into one range, I need to generate pivot tables and charts.

These reports will change month to month in the number of entries they have (template will be identical), and therefore my data source range for the pivot table is bound to change. Therefore my question is, how to develop a macro that will dynamically change the source data range to the amount of rows?

Pivot Table Field Not In Data Source

Apr 24, 2006

I am using pivot tables which were created by another (no longer contactable) and have found two fields in the field list which are not part of the source data i.e. neither are column headings but are used in the pivot table.

My questions are:

1. How are these field created?

2. How can I examine these fields for formulae (as I have found one of them returns an incorrect value)?

Field1 return a numerical value which is the difference between two columns
Field2 shows this as a % (but incorrectly)

Define Pivot Table Source As Variable

Dec 28, 2007

I am producing graphs that compare last years figures (static) with this years figures ( Dynamic) and this years figures come from a Pivot table and Worksheet that has been imported. The value returned in each cell for the graph's dataset is derived from a specific Pivot table row and the column name (month) that matches the column of the data set - so far so good. The formula currently looks like this.

=IF(ISNUMBER(GETPIVOTDATA("Duration of Spell",'Count PS'!$A$3,"Admission Hospital","Hillside","Discharge Date Month Name",Q3)),(GETPIVOTDATA("Duration of Spell",'Count PS'!$A$3,"Admission Hospital","Hillside","Discharge Date Month Name",Q3)),0)

where 'Count PS' is the name of the worksheet and Q3 is the reference cell that holds the Month Name. The problem is that I will not always be creating the report and other users may use a different name for the imported worksheet. I want to be able to set the name of the worksheet to be referenced in a supporting worksheet so that the user could simply amend the cell value to be the name of the source worksheet, but I can't work out the syntax

Maintain Source Data Formatting In Pivot Table?

Nov 20, 2010

I have some source data which is used to generate a pivot table. The data is conditionally formatted to color certain cells based on some other values. Once the data is transferred to the pivot table this formatting (as well as the number formatting) is lost.

I have found some code to fix the number formatting issue but can't seem to locate something similar to set the interior color of the cells in the pivot table to match that of the original source data.

Update The Pivot Table Data Source From Cell?

Aug 8, 2013

I have a pivot table whose data source is located on a shared network drive. Each day a new data source is uploaded and the only thing that changes is the date in the filename (ie. DataSource080813.xlsx). I am trying to find a way to set the data source to update with todays date automatically each day so that when you open the workbook it is always current days data. I have a cell (B2) with a formula in it that gives me the file location of todays file (ie. X:TeamFolderFile1DataSource080813.xlsx, where the date is derived using the TODAY() function. Is there a way to set the pivot table data source to cell B2 and have it use the text from B2 as the file location?

Can't Refresh Pivot Table When Using External Data Source

Refreshing Actual Data Source Of Pivot Table

Dec 31, 2013

Trying to create a basic pivot table from a CSV file for our users. What I've done in the past is open my CSV and then take the option Insert > Pivot Table to create the pivot table from the open CSV/worksheet. My question here is .... how can I save this .XLS and refresh the CSV data within? Or do I need to use an external data source? I don't want to have to use any drivers. I'd love to be able to just point to a CSV or TXT file on our server and that be that.

For something else I have used Web Query strings to point to .php scripts that send back data in XML format. Is this an option?

Again, the goal is for me to create a pivot table and just have our user's open it up and have current/refreshed data within. We can run jobs overnight or on-demand that update the data source.

I would like not to have to update the source data for the pivot table in my database. I've read that you can solve this by using a Dynamic Named Range and using that as the source for the pivot table. That way the pivot table will expand as new data is added to the database.

Hidden Columns In Pivot Table Source Data

Excel 2010 :: Change Pivot Table Source With VBA?

Nov 25, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and have a workbook with two sheets - "Risks & Issues" which contains the source data and "Risks - Summary" which contains a Pivot Table called "Dashboard"

I would like to create a command button called 'Refresh Data' which will be on the "Risks - Summary" sheet. When I add a new line to the "Risks & Issues" sheet, I would click the button in "Risks - Summary" and it will update the Pivot Table range.

So far I've tried using some examples found on this site, although with no experience in VBA macros, I'm not really sure what they do; all I know is that they cause an error.

Code:

Sub Refresh_Click()
Sheets("Risks - Summary").PivotTables("Dashboard").SourceData = Sheets("Risks & Issues").Range("A2").CurrentRegion.Address(True, True, xlR1C1, True)
End Sub

[Code].....
