Automatically Change The Field Setting Of Count To Sum In Pivot Table
Feb 13, 2014
I have a vast amount of data entries in a pivot table (over 100). I want to create a pivot table but when I click on it it says 'count' and not 'sum'. It will take me a long time to change them all, how do I do it quickly? And possibly, without the 'sum of ....' in the label of it?
In building my pivot table my data that I want to show in the column area is showing up as rows stacked on top of each other. In the column section I'm trying to show Total Budgeted Amount next to Total Actual Amount but on the layout it's showing the two stacked on top of each other is there some kind of hidden key that I'm missing?
I am trying to calculate a ratio for Hours per Ticket by month. I have a pivot table that COUNTS tickets and SUMS hours per month. I was hoping to create a calculated field to the jist of COUNT(Tickets) / SUM(Hours), but this does not work because calculated fields aggregate data.... I was hoping to keep it all in a pivot table so that I can still use slicers.
Right, I have tried everything I can do (which is not so much) to achieve the following. Can someone please help?
I have a worksheet with about 300 rows of data. The columns are headed Name | Division | Department and then 8 different scores and a total score). I have created 7 different worksheets with pivot tables on them to display each division.
Now, here is what I would like to do. Each Pivot table should show the Name and 1! of the scores next to it. That is simple enough and works. But how do I create a macro that allows me to change which score to display based on the content of cell A1. I.e. If I write Effort in A1 I want the pivot table to show Name | Effort score. If I write Complexity I want the pivot table to change to Name | Complexity score.
I've recorded a macro that clears a worksheet, fetches data from an Access Table and then creates a new pivot table. The Pivot Table Fields are summarized by "sum" and this worked the first few cycles for the macro. Now it is returning the Pivot Table Fields summarized by "count". Can an option be inserted into the existing code to specify "sum"? Here is the
1. I am trying to record a macro where I select a Pivot Table. But in the recorded macro "Pivot Table name" is not recorded neither the Pivot Field Property only the Range name is recorded. But on other systems (workstations) these details get recorded. Does this have something to do with excel settings?
2. I uploaded a macro enabled excel file on my company's "sharepoint" the drop down boxes present in the file get populated via a macro in "ThisWorkbook" page but sometimes these drop down boxes don't show any values. What can be the reason for this? Can't share the file because of data security policy of my organization.
why the Group Field option is not available in my Pivot Table. Other Pivot Tables in the same document, using data formatted the same way will let me format the data (the original data is in MM/DD/YY [h]:mm format). I have floored my data so that I can group by hour of the day, but it's not letting me do that.
I have two fields in pivot table, "HATA TOPLAMI" and "SIRA NO". "Hata toplamı" is sum of items, and "Sıra no" is count of items. İ want to divide these two fields and add it to the pivot table, like "HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO". I have tried calculated field function from pivot table. İ wrote "="HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO"". But the summary is false. I want to divide Sum of "Hata toplamı" and count of "Sıra no" but instead it divides with sum of "sıra no". Is there a way to do this?
I have a problem in expanding/collapsing fields in pivot table.
I have source table with GROUP, SUBGROUP, ACCOUNT and AMOUNT. In pivot table I've put GROUP, SUBGROUP and ACCOUNT in Row labels respectivly, and AMOUNT in values. There are same names in SUBGROUP for different names in GROUP. (for example: groups are Production costs and Distribution costs and in each of them there are subgroups Personnel costs and Other costs).
The question is: Is it possible to expand only field Other costs in group Distribution costs while field Other costs in group Production costs stays collapsed?
Ihave a pivot table that takes data from a table, groups the duplicate items and adds their values up - so it shows just one entry for each item. I now want to add a calculated field in there so that I can divide one of the fields into another.
I have attached a simple test file. The data tab has two columns in the pivot range. The third column is _not_ in the pivot range, but is there to show the result I'm trying to get with the pivot.
The idea is to count the number of people whose entry dates are greater than 2/1/2009. My third data column gives a correct result, but a similar formula in the calculated field of the pivot table gives a completely wrong result (a date), where my goal is to generate a zero, a one, or a sum of zeros and ones.
It could be a formatting issue, but that would not explain why all the pivot results have the _same_ wrong answer.
I'm new to PTs and calculated fields, and expect I've made a naive mistake that an expert could easily spot.
I have a pivot table with 2 row filters (dept and name) and then three columns - Year 1, Year 2. I need to add a calculated field inbetween Year 1 and 2 to show the variance in dollars from ( Year1-Year2) as well as an additonal a column that shows the percentage change between the tw o years . I know I can copy this over and add formuals in Excel but I need to retain the features of the pivot tables due to the 2 row filters?
I've created a Pivot Table with 30+ fields. I've recorded the following macro to add the first field. I need modifying the code so that it looks for and adds every field automatically. It'd save a lot of time.
Code: Sub PTAdd() ' ' PTAdd Macro ' ' With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable3").PivotFields("Assigned To") .Orientation = xlRowField .Position = 1 End With End Sub
I have a pivot table Field, with 3 listed items, referencing data from 3 separate worksheets - named 2004, 2005, 2006. ( i renamed them from the original item1, item2 and item3, to 2004, 2005 and 2006. I have now redefined the range in worksheet 2006 by using the Pivot table wizard and going one step back. I have now got 4 listed items in my Field - 2004, 2005, 2006 and item4. I cannot rename item4 to 2006 unless I delete 2006. But do you think it's letting me do that???? So how do I remove unwanted items in a Pivot table field list?
I have a pivot table that picks up the month an invoice was generated. Since I have several invoices for a few months in 2005, I would like to sum all the 2005 invoices into one column. I have the impression that I can insert a field within a Pivot table to sum all the amounts related to 2005.
I know in Pivot tbale we could add calculated field into the data ,but I fail to put the added in the "Page","Row" or the "Column". Eg. in the sheet of data,I have a column " DATE",but no column for year.Is it possible to add year in the "page" without adding anything into the "data" sheet?
I have data that develops 3 to 4 pivot table each day. I would like to know if there is a way to change the date on one of the pivot table and have the other pivot tables date change to match with the first pivot table. At this time I am going to all 3 or 4 pivot table to select the correct date. The date is in the page position of the pivot table. I have attached a small sample of the data and the pivot tables.
I have two fields where users enter a security identifier (cell P1) and the declaration date (cell P2) and i'd like to be able to pull all the records from the master table (A1:K10) where the security id matches (column H) and the request date (column C) is <= the declaration date (i've attached a sample file for your reference). I tried using a pivot table but it doesn't let me filter for "less than or equal to" values for the request date.
I am trying to display text in the value field within a pivot table. I do not want a count or any number to display. What I am basically trying to create is a weekly schedule for nurses, with the dates on the top and times along the side, with "call type" and client as the text data to display with the value field.
I have attached an excel file with all the data on Sheet 1 and my attempt at a pivot table on Sheet 2. Perhaps there is some way to write a macro to display the data in a similar fashion, without using a pivot table?
