Count Unique Values In A Pivot Table

I have a spreadsheet with several records for each person's name.
I want to have pivot tables based on various columns, with the data field being a count of unique occurrences of a person's name.

When I set up a basic Pivot, it counts each occurence of the person's name.

Count Unique Values In Pivot Table
I have a worksheet with a list of employees and the workgroup they belong to, along with other data like manager, start dates, etc. Recently a couple of the workgroups were duplicated (change in managers), so these employees are showing up on two rows even though the workgroup has the same name. The only differences in the two rows are the workgroup effective start and end dates. I need to be able to count, in a pivot table, the number of unique employee/workgroup combinations there are per workgroup. I can add columns to the sheet, but it's a dynamic set of data that will grow each time it's refreshed...

Count Of Unique Values In Pivot Table
I'm trying to create a pivot table that will count how many employees have completed a Learning Plan. This task becomes complex (for me) because each learning plan has multiple Courses, each Course has a status of "Completed" or "Incomplete". A Learning Plan would only be considered "Completed" if all the courses within that Learning Plan were completed. In doing some research, it looks like I'll need to create another column of data, that shows per employee, per Learning Plan, if the entire Learning Plan has been completed, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about this. Please find SampleData attached.

Pivot - Unique Count
I want to have a unique count field in my pivot table. I already read (via forum search) that this can only be achieved by adding an extra column to the database.

The problem is: I have no clue which formula to use for this column. Please have a look at the attached picture. Can someone provide me with a formula for this example?

Count Pivot Fields In Pivot Table
I am trying to find a way to count the total number of pivot fields in a pivot table so I can remove ghost pivot items that are no longer in the pivot table data. My code for this subroutine is as follows;

Sub RemoveGhostPivotItems()
Dim ghost As PivotItem
Dim pt As PivotTable
Set pt = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
pt.ManualUpdate = True
For Count = 1 To 10
On Error Resume Next
For Each ghost In pt.PivotFields(Count).PivotItems
Next ghost
Next Count
pt.ManualUpdate = False
End Sub

My code makes an assumption that I have 10 Pivot Fields or less. It would be nice to actually know the number of Pivot Fields so my "For Count" Loop would be more efficient. In otherwords;..............

Unique Values In Pivot Tables
I have a list of purchase order line items. Each Purchase order could have multiple line items, so the list could have many occurances of the same purchase order number. I have designed a pivot table which summaries line items by ordering area (one of the fields in the list).

This works fine but what I would also like to check is the number of purchase orders by area. How can I acheive this? I would prefer not to use any helper columns but will adapt my application if this is needed.

Pivot Table Grand Total And Sum/count
I started a pivot table for our budget and on the left side I have the account names and about 4 columns of applicable account codes to which I turn on and off when needed. On the right side I have all the budget numbers divided by quarter and halfs. On the right side, I can drop any list of numbers and it does the sum but for some reason, when I drop my 4th quarter numbers, it gives me a count and not sum. How do I change it to sum?

Second problem: I have grand totals number going down the columns meaning I have a sum of all my 1st Quarter numbers but I do not have them going across each line on row. How do I add that?

Third problem: I forgot a list of account codes to be put on the left, how can I add it?

Pivot Table (count As A Single Fail Against The Associate)
I have a source data tab laid out like this:

QC Date.......Policy#......Associate.......Pass/Fail......1stError.....2ndError.....3rdError

QC'ers can enter up to 3 different error types committed on a single failed policy, thus the reason for 3 error fields, even though all 3 fields offer the same value list selections (ie ErrorTypeA, ErrorTypeB, ErrorTypeC......). A policy, whether it has one error or three errors assigned, should only count as a single fail against the associate.

My problem comes into play when attempting to pivot the data. I would ideally like to see the pivot table in this format:

(filter)QC Date

Where the "count" is the total number of occurances of that error type across all three error fields - 1stError, 2ndError, 3rdError.

But since 1st/2nd/3rd error fields are different columns, I am unable to do a single count.

My pivot ends up looking something like this:

Then repeated for the 2ndError and 3rdError fields.

Macro Resetting Pivot Table Field To Count
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

Count/Sum Unique Values Based On Criteria
I'm facing a big problem and I can't found a solution for days.

I'm trying to count/sum unique values in a Range, base on a criteria excluding Blank cells. Basicly I'm using the Formula Below:


Let me Put to you an example for you been able to understand my problem.

Example considering Range "C2:C20" exluding blank cells

(1) - To count unique values

(2) - To count unique values based on criteria in range "B2:B20"

(3) - To sum unique values on "E2:E20" based on same criteria

They all work fine. But I need to insert a merge at Row 10 for
better reading purposes and the (2) and (3) are returning (#DIV/0). The (1) formula still work's.
I just don't know what to do guys ....

Format Cells Based On Values In Pivot Table
I have a pivot table and next to it I added some calculations which are based on data from the table. In my "real" file, the cells next to the PT are formatted with conditional formatting based on other values in the sheet (see attached sample file). What I now need to do is add borders to the cells in columns D:G only if the cells in B5 and downwards are not empty. I have tried doing it with conditional formatting but there are some other rules which contradict this setting.

The idea is to make the cells in columns D:G look like they are a natural extension on the PT. However, the table can grow or shrink (in length) and I want to see borders only around cells that are on the same rows as the data in column B (staring with B5). I think that whatever solution you can provide (if you can...) should be based a workbook_change event, because in my real file, the length of the table is changed whenever I select a different page of the PT.

Copy Pivot Table & Paste As Values & Formats

This is of course dynamic (one month it may contain 10 suppliers + 8 products, other month 15 suppliers + 20 products). On sheet3 is the (static) lay-out of all suppliers and all products. Now, what I want is that all fields <> empty (or zero) from the pivot table are to be copied and placed in sheet3, the 'report' I have to fill in. index and match won't do the job I think.

Pivot Table Labels Based On Comma Delimited Cell Values
"Is there a way to make values in a cell that are comma delimited (ex. cat, dog, fish) became separate labels in a pivot table instead of getting labels like 'cat, dog', 'fish, cat', 'cat, dog, fish' which represents the exact value in the cells.

The only real option I can think of would be to make an extra rows with the same data for each pet type. For example if the pets were 'cat, dog', there would be two almost identical rows except one would have 'cat' and the other 'dog'."

I have made a vba setup which can solve the problem. But it is pretty complicated and unstable. I need a solution which is not vba based. ~Or a least a very simple code!
