Dates Pivot Table US Format But Source Dates European
Apr 4, 2008
there are a multitude of issues with US date formats when you're not in the US but I've run across one that I can't figure out.
I have a source table that has approx 5000 lines on it, everything looks correct and all the dates are in the correct (Australian) format. However when I use it to make a pivot table, any dates that are before the 12/m/yyyy gets changed to the mmddyyyy format in the pivot table only, all the source dates are still correct.
why is pivot table changing numbers to dates. It was fine all along, numbers retained the fromat of source data and now, all numbers in field columns are turning into dates. is there a setting I can change to prevent excel from reformatting numbers to dates?
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.
I am stuck trying to sort data that looks like the following, into a format that I can use as source data for pivot tables/charts.

I will need to group Data multiple ways. However, I cant work out a good way to sort it. Can I have a suggestion on layout that I will be able to arrange data appropriately.
i have a spreadsheet containing to columns "Date from and "Date to". the sheet is recording the attendance of staff. how can i create a pivot table to display how many days staff attend across months. i cannot us the first date "date from", as this will display all the days attended
I am having issues grouping dates by month in the attached example. The date field is formatted as text. When I attempt to group in the pivot table, I am not given the grouping dialog box. I can't figure out why.
I have a checkbook register set up in Excel, and I really like it. I thought it would be good to set up a pivot table to organize all of the entries into an expense report. I have done this for over a year now, and I love everything about it, but here is the problem:
Now that I am getting so many entries, I thought it would be a good feature to limit the pivot table to a date range. I created 2 entry cells at the top of the pivot table to put a start and end date. I would like the pivot table to compare the entries in the register to the dates, and only include the entries between those dates. How do I do this?
I've got a database view that holds data for over a year, i use a - 2 day rule to show net data, for example todays date is the 31th 5 2007 if i show data up untill today it will be gross data, so i use the -2day rile to show the net data, the way i do this is in a pivot table i hide the last 2 date.
I have a DTS package the refreshed the Pivot table but i'd like also to have a macro or maybe vba script to ide the 2 last days this will have to happen every day so for to day it will hide the 30th and 29 tomorrow it will show the 29th and hide the 30 & 31th. I still need to have the data for the 30th & 31 in the drilldown as some people work with the gross data so i can't just make the change inthe database i wish it was that easy. At the moment i go in to the pivot table and Highligh the last 2 days. i'd like a way of doing this automically.
I am currently working with a pivot table someone else created. The data set has dates only, in the correct format. The slicer has the dates categorized by month and excludes the dates in which there was no data.
Here is my problem: I added a few new months of data. Everything is calculating just fine in the Pivot table. However, my slicer where I should be able to pick the month now has these months listed as all their individual dates. I want to put the December dates under "December" and so on. The data that was present before I loaded anything additional still has this feature.
How do I group these dates, to be able to them as months? By the way, the grouping function is grayed out.
I have a large spreadsheet which lists individual dates over two years and circulation figures next to each date. Sometimes there are two entries for a particular date e.g. 1/10/08 there were 150 readers of magazine A and 200 readers of magazine B. When displaying this on a graph it give a bar for each day, whereas I would like a bar for each week.
Is there a formula to convert the individual dates into weeks and then total the circulation figures for that week?
I have been using Excel to display, sort and present data in a professional way. I have created a pivot table with two columns below. Column C indicates the start date. Column D indicates the completion date. Blank cells show live data. I need to determine the number of days. 1) That have been - completed - a) That were < 2 Days, b) >2 but less than a week, c) > than a week (all). I have used the following formulas. a) countif(D4:D61, "<3"), b) countifs(D4:D61, ">2", D4:D61, "<=8"). Easy for completed data. My problem is, how do I determine the number of days, live data that following the same queries as above. I have figured out I can use countif to count the number of blanks by - countif(D4:D61, "(blank)") but how to put it all together and what formula should I use. I am trying to use countifs or if statements but am totally lost.

I would like to use a pivot table to manipulate my data. However, I need to be able to select data within my data set by a range of dates (usually a week). Is there a way to use a pivot table but reduce the data set by a user enter range of dates?
The date field is the first column in my data sheet.
I have a stripped down data source for debugging purposes. I only have 4 rows of data for test purposes. The dates are formatted as dates.
When I create the pivot table the dates become my column values. When I select the first date in the pivot table the Group By Field menu option is grayed out. I tried setting a tabular format but didn't work.
Unfortunately I receive an error saying it can't group the selection.
I have done "text to columns" and made the cells - (date values) and I have had no luck.
As I am at work I can't use the HTML genie because it won't install but I have uploaded a dummy file to my dropbox which available from here [URL] .......
I pull this data from an Oracle POWER PIVOT and always have trouble grouping the dates when they come from Power Pivot. Currently working as analyst so figuring this out would make life so much easier as I could group by months etc.
I'm trying to make a simple chart, which maps the value of an investment fund over time. I wanted to use the new 'Table' feature within Excel 2010 to format and maintain the formulae within the Table, and the 'Header' for the table contains the date, which is not at regular intervals.
If I opt not to use the Table feature, I can create a line-chart with ease, and Excel recognises that the Dates are indeed dates and plots the graph correctly. The minute I convert over to a Table, the Date headers are no longer recognised as dates, and are instead plotted as if they were text, at regular intervals.
I've tried multiplying the Date Headers by 1 to force them back to true Dates, but this still does not work. I've also changed the setting on the horizontal axis to Date axis rather than automatic, but still no joy.
I have a database of roughly 9000 rows. My first sheet is this data in a raw format (Masterdata!). Each row is a fire-rescue response call and therfore has a time stamp. The raw data uses different formats to provide the time stamp. My second sheet is my filtered data (Filtereddata!). In order to make these time stamps uniform I have a formula that looks at the Masterdata! timestamp column and if it is in a numeric format changes it to a text date and if it is a text date perserves it.
This gives me the "timestamp" which has both the incident start time and the date. I have =left and =right formulas breaking apart the date and the time. Therefore I have two columns on my Filtereddata! for the date of the incident and the time the call came in. What I would like to do is run some pivot tables and group incidents by month. I am unable to group them once I run the pivot table. I get a "Unable to group these items" (or something like this) message. I have assured multiple times that the date column is in DATE format. However, when I change the date to long date or short date I see no changes in the column so I am assuming there is something happening that I'm missing. The formula populating the date column on Filtereddata! is as such:
I have a pivot table with dates along the x-axis. The data is spread out over 5 years and the spacing between sampling events is not even, therefore, the spacing of my x-axis dates is not even. I want the x-axis to look similar to a normal graph where there is equal space between each month, even if I don't have data for each month. I do not want to group the data to accomplish this. If I click the "show items with no data" it only shows one extra day, not all days or even all months. I have excel 2010.
I have a masive table of dates (the date is created via a if formula) what i need is so wheni enter 2 dates in 2 cells the system checks all the dates between the two specified and then returns the contents of them to a small area on the page.

i dont mind using script or anything like that, i dont have much knowlage of it but do have coniderable understanding of other langages and usually figure it out :D
I've a table of historical members status list. with this table, I could track each member status history, since the beginning they become a member.
Here is the short of table
Name Member Status Date
Adel New Member 1-Jan-14
I expect to use Pivot table to show how many people which are still "New Member" and/or "Junior Member" up to now. From the table above, there should be: only one person who still as New Member. because it is only Smith, and only two people with Junior Member. they are Adel and Jhon.
I've search around and found the following useful link, viewing only the last date in a pivot table for each user also A quick way to return the latest date in a subset in Excel

I'm trying to write a macro that will create a pivot table, and am getting an Error code 1004: Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File "Sheetname". My code is below. I've tried to note what each section does, and it all seems to work well except for the Pivot Table creation.
I have a problem where i am just trying to do a simple copy of dates from one spreadsheet to another
18/03/2008 00:00 however when the its copied to the other spreassheet is changes to the US date formate 3/18/2008 0:00 I need to keep the format as date as the date needs to be the current day. How do i get this to remain UK
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?
I was wondering if there is any way possible to link your pivot table filters to filter the data the same way in the table that it comes from? So if i had date as one of my headers and i filtered the date to a specfifc date, is there a way to also filter the date in the data source sheet?
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.
