# Create Own Formula In Pivot Table

Jul 25, 2006

Another question about pivot tables. In Excel it is possible to show different kinds of information in a pivot table like sum, total, min, max, average and so on. I want to create my own formulas in my pivots. Is this possible and if so how?

## Create Formula In Pivot Table

Jul 28, 2006

I have two questions about dealing with formulas in pivot tables and how to make them dynamic. First let me give you some further background.

My database countains the following variables: Country, Company, Period, Product, Category and Sales. Out of this database i created a pivottable which sums the total sales amount for each company in every period. Further selection on country and category is possible in this pivot table. See my attached file!

I want to express the sales of each company as a percentage of the total sales in that period. For example for company A in period 1 their total sales was (929/3172) 29,3% of the total market sales. Which formula do i have to use in my pivot table to express company's market shares?

Further my pivot table can be specified more detailed by country and category. I want to be able to select on country and category in such a way that the company sales are still expressed as a percentage of the market sales. In other words how can i make my pivot table dynamic?

## Excel 2010 :: Create Sheet With Table From Pivot Table?

Apr 26, 2012

Recently, the boss showed me a Pivot table & chart, which consists of a list of about 30 user names in the first column. The row headings were the different items they purchased from a vending machine. & when he clicked on any name in the first column, this created a new sheet, renamed with users name, with a small table of results showing what that person purchased.

Problem is, none of us can figure out how to do this. I have created a new Pivot table & chart exactly like the original, but I cannot get the smaller sheet to generate. (Excel 2010)

## Create Pivot Table In New Tab With New Name

May 1, 2009

1) I want to create a pivot table in a new tab that has both the prefix “ENG” and the date of creation as the new name of the tab every time a new table is required, using the example headers highlighted in the attached file.

2) Then if possible format the table as in the example, i.e. bordered cells for all the data and the dates only aligned to the right. Example in tab “Eng 01 05 09”

No 1 is the most import question I would like help on. Formatting is not crucial. This is only to make the table easier on the “eye of the beholder”, I am writing this spreadsheet for people who have less knowledge than myself and would like to keep it as simple as possible, (run a macro and get the results).

## Create Groups In Pivot Table Using VBA

Jan 26, 2012

I regularly build a pivot table using VBA. I now want to group countries into regions within the pivot table, and I want to automate that using vba.

For simplicity, assume I have the countries Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway and Sweden; and I want to create the Groups BeNeLux and Scandinavia. (In reality, I have 150 countries, one group of 10 countries, 2 countries I want to show individually, and the rest of the world I want to group together)

I know I could select the cells using something like cells(d2:f2).group, but that seems wrong....

I have attached a file showing how far I can get with vba and where i want to get.

I have also tried things like ".DataRange.cells(2).group by:=3" but that never led to anything....

## Create List From Pivot Table

Feb 24, 2010

I'm trying to create what is essentially a report card for our staff. I have all the data in a pivot table and then I am using 'GETPIVOTDATA's in the report template to extract the information, linking the sheets via a cell that contains the staff members name. Easy enough. However for reasons of efficiency and practicality I would like to be able to select the names from a drop down list on the sheet rather than having to type it in manually or maintaining a separate sheet for everyone. The operators will change from month to month and there are approximately 90 staff at any given point in time that will need to be reported on so it really needs to be sourced from the pivot data.

## Recording Macro That Will Create Pivot Table?

## Create Pivot Table In Hidden Sheet

## Create Pivot Table For Each File In Folder?

Apr 5, 2012

I have the following code that will open each file in a folder and run code on it. I'm trying to write code that will create a pivot table on each of the opned files...but cannot get past opening the file...

So I had built the vba code into a specific workbook so I could just drop that workbook into any folder I wanted to run code on files to and depending on the name of the file it would run different type of code. The problem has something to do with using "activesheet" for the pivot table wizard. It just doesn't like it and gives me a application 1004 error.

any way I can modify the activesheet so it will make a pivot of the newly opened file? I think what it is trying to do is make a pivot of the blank workbook that the code resides in

Sub filelooper()
MyDir = ActiveWorkbook.Path ' current path
Dim MyFile As String

## Combine Workbooks And Create Pivot Table

May 4, 2014

I have 16 different workbooks for different regions of my company. Each workbook has one worksheet (sheet named each region name), and all workbooks are formatted same regarding column names. Ultimately, I would like to combine all workbooks into one summary workbook where I can build a pivot table and pull out various data. Do you think this method is the best way to do what I am trying to do? I am very novice when it comes to VBA. I have written the code below, however, it is not working.

Code:
Sub GetSheets()
Path = "C:UsersDanielleDesktopWorksheets"
Filename = Dir(Path & "*.xls")
Do While Filename ""
Workbooks.Open Filename:=Path & Filename, ReadOnly:=True
For Each Sheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Sheet.Copy After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1)
Next Sheet
Workbooks(Filename).Close
Filename = Dir()
Loop
End Sub

## Create Pivot Table Based On Union Query

Jul 2, 2010

I created a union query in Access to join two tables (Projections and Actual Sales). The query produces the results I want. I need to create a pivot table in Excel using the union query as the source. When I pull up the data import function in Excel, the union query does not appear. Do I need to do something else? I have tried to create a select query where I select all from the union query and I can find that fine.

When I use this query to create the pivot table the results end up all zeros when I try to sum the values. It creates some crazy results when I show it as count of also.

I can provide the data in either the Access database or Excel spreadsheet.

## Create A Pivot Table That Displays Data By Month?

Jan 15, 2014

I have written two macros to create a pivot table that displays data by month. I created a column that is a flag that indicates if the if an instance occurred in the last 4 months(later used as a filter). The issue is how to handle defining the last 4 months. If the current date is prior to the 16th, I want to define the last 4 months as not including the current month. If it is after the 15th, I want define the last 4 months as including the current month. Currently I have two different macros and I make the decision on which to run. I would like the macro to handle this for me. Below is the cell formula that I use to set the flag if it is in the first half of the month.

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-3]>EOMONTH(TODAY(),-5)+1,1,0)"

## How To Create Calculated Field Based Off Two Avg Fields In Pivot Table

Feb 12, 2014

I have a Pivot table that pulls the Avg of two fields for two months, see example below.

Avg Gross \$ Avg Net \$
Jan 2014 20 10
Feb 2014 30 20

sample 1.png
See sample attached.

The Avg Gross and Net is shown by going into the values and selecting "Summarized value by -> Average".

On the right side of this Pivot, what I wanted to do is to show a Avg Gross to Net \$ in this pivot. So the formula should take "Avg Gross \$" - "Avg Net \$" = Avg Gross to Net \$.

I am having trouble calculting this new field in the pivot table using a calculated field because the Calculated field pulls the variables from the existing field list and there isn't a field called "Avg Gross/Net"....I need to find a way to calculate the Avg Gross to Net into the Pivot table so I can pull a pivot graph out of it.

## Create Pivot Table That Does Not Skip Through Blank Data Cells?

## Copy Pivot Table Format And Create New Data Source?

Apr 26, 2012

I have created a pivot table in a workbook which relates to data from 2011 - 2012 and this works perfectly. What I now need to do is to copy the pivot table (without the data source) to a new workbook for data which will be collected from 2012 - 2013. Unfortunately when I copy it and try and find the new data source it does not update the filters according to the data in the new workbook.
