Hide/Show Pivot Table Fields
Im using the following VBA code, but the on error resume does nothing, excel throws out the error 1004 "Unable to get the pivotfields property of the pivottable class" (i know why the error is caused and how to fix it but my error trapping wont work). Is there some option which i have turned off which prevents me from trapping errors?

Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Excel.Sheets("Sheet1")
On Error Goto err:
If ws. Range("IV1").Value = "dog" Then
ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Price Euros").Orientation = xlHidden
ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Price Dollars").Orientation = xlHidden
End If

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;..............

Pivot Table - Hiding Fields
I have a question regarding pivot tables. how do I hide a field but still maintain that filter? I have a field in the Column Fields titled "International". Right now I've filtered out only the YES entries, but I don't want to see a "YES" column beside each. When I try to hide the column the filter is reset and all entries, international or not, are seen. Can I hide the column but maintain its filter?

Using References In Pivot Table Calculated Fields Formula
Worksheet A contains two columns, that maps individual operations to their unitary cost:
COLUMN 1 = a list of operations
COLUMN 2 = the cost associated with each operation.

I can do a vlookup on this worksheet to retrieve the cost of each individual operation.

On another worksheet, I have a pivot table with a field that produces the sum of operations performed by type of operation, eg.

operation 1 was performed 5 times
operation 2 was performed 7 times
operation 3 was performed 4 times

I want to add a calculated field in the pivottable, that would output the total cost per operation. The formula for the calculated field in thepivot table would be
= operation * vlookup("name of operation","range for lookup table",2,0)

... unfortunately, "references, names and arrays are not supported in pivottable formulas".

Test/Compare Pivot Table Fields Macro Code
I wrote a macro for a pivot table.

ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
"Export!R1C1:R3000C53").CreatePivotTable TableDestination:="", TableName:= _
"PivotTable4", DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion10
ActiveSheet.PivotTableWizard TableDestination:=ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1)
ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1).Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").AddDataField ActiveSheet.PivotTables( _
"PivotTable4").PivotFields("Reference"), "Count of Reference", xlCount
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("ACN received date")
.Orientation = xlRowField
.Position = 1
End With

What i want to know is if there is a code line to test if "Non Processed" value exists in column "Status" and then hide the value.

Now, if the macro does not find one value just gives me error.

Pivot Table Show All
I am trying to form a macro in VBA that will basically uncheck the "Show All" function of the Pivot Table filter user interface, and then select only the one PivotItem that I want. In context, I have about 50+ different project numbers, each with a different worksheet and its corresponding pivot table. Here is what I have so far:

Dim pvtitem
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Project #")
For Each pvtitem In .PivotItems
pvtitem.Visible = False
End With
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Project #")
.PivotItems("525064").Visible = True
End With

When I try to run it, it gives me the error: "Unable to set the Visible property of the PivotItem class". It looks like the error occurs in the loop part of the macro.

First post so please excuse me if this has been covered before but I am trying to get the results of a dropdown menu in one worksheet to become the criteria for a filter in another worksheet (both in teh same workbook).

I thought I could just add a reference to the dropdown cell into the autofilter (in VBA editor) but it doe't seem to be that simple.

Using Two Or More Drop Downs With VLOOKUP
I have an analytics sheet where I have a client name chosen from a drop down via validation. The problem I am running into is that while I want information from a data table to populate a cell based on the selection from the validation, I also want the cell to populate based on a second drop down box (basically selecting a time frame). Take the example data table below:

Client Jan 2009 Jan 2009 Target etc etc
Client A 1111 1290
Client B 900 750

I would like the user to be able to select Client B and then, from a separate drop down, also choose, say, Jan 2009 Target and then another cell would populate with, in this case, 750.

Drop Downs And Adding
trying to shred the last bits of fat for the summer and thought I'd try a Keto diet, this depends heavily on not eating very many carbs, as well as keeping your total Kcal intake below maintenance.

This makes for a fairly tricky diet, as most things you generally eat contains alot of carbs, so I thought I'd make planning my meals easy, by creating an excel sheet, with drop down menues for different foods/drinks as well as their nutritional content.

I want to run a macro on the detail data but can't see a way to do it automatically, have tried, BeforeDoubleClick, PivotTableUpdate, NewSheet events but all have there draw backs if you are doing something other than showing the detail for the pivot table. Of course I can just run the macro after the sheet is made but it would be nice to do it on its own.

Make Multiple Name Show Up Only Once In Pivot Table?
In the attached file (xlsx) under 'Database' Tab poeple have indicated their preferences (multiple choices) for different food items "specialties". The specialties are grouped under broader buckets called "groups". The specialties are bucketed into groups in a way that people end up more than once in each specialties and groups due to their muliple selections. When we create a pivot by specialties (Pivot Specialties tab), each person appears only once for each's great. But, when we create a "group" pivot (each group has multiple specialties), now, people appear more than once for each group. Is there a way, each person can show up only once under each group so the group count does not appear to be misleading?

Pivot Table, Show Empty Rows
In my Pivot table I have 3 fields in the "header - section" of each row
There is also the possibilty in the Page section to choose between subjects (eg physics, chemistry, biology etc) When all rows are displayed there are 68 in total

When I choose Physics there are about 30 customers that have a value in 1 of the rows. Excel shows 30 rows, but I would like all 68 row to be shown, because these are the values that are important to me. I have tried a lot of settings in the pivot table but can't find the correct 1.

What happens a lot is the the rows are "multiplied", meaning that the 1st row header has every combination of the 2nd and 3rd and so one. Which setting is needed to get what I want?

Show Budget VS Actual In Pivot Table
I have weekly budget report (for the entire year) that I put in a Pivot Table with approx 20 different row labels. The actual revenue numbers come only once a month (several different reports make up the actual revenue numbers). I need to put the actual numbers on the same row as the budget numbers and I can't figure it out.

For example, for the first three months of the year, I have the pivot table showing everything perfectly. In February, I get January's actual revenue numbers that now "replace" the budget numbers for January. If this was a regular table, I could easily overwrite these numbers, but with the pivot table, I can't get these two fields to line up. For now, I have the Actual Revenue numbers on the Rows above the Budget numbers for their respective months/quarters.

Pivot Table: Muscle Memory With The Drop Down Choice Boxes
I am somewhat of a novice with Pivot Tables. One problem I am having that no one seems able to help me out with is that when I update and refresh my pivot table, it seems like it has a muscle memory with the drop down choice boxes.

For example:
Lets say I have three customers that I have labeled 01 Target, 02 Walmart and 03 Bed Bath and Beyond. If I want to change 01 Target to 02 Target and 02 Walmart to 01 Walmart, it works in the pivot table and shows the proper data but if I try to choose the customer from a drop down box, it remembers the customers as labeled as they were before I made the changes AND the current look.

I will see: 01 Target, 02 Target, 01 Walmart and 02 Walmart in the drop down box but the data will only show up in the pivot table associated with the proper customers as they are labeled in the data source.

Easily Hide/Show Pivot Table Items
I work at a trading firm and use pivot tables to report on the success of traders on a daily basis. I add daily trading data to a raw data table that powers a set of reports. In one report I want to view MTD stats for a filtered group of 10 traders. The issue is that if I add a set of daily data that includes a new trader name, it will automatically be pre-checked and added to this report (and this happens daily). The only solution I came up with is to add another column in the raw data table that would allow me to group these traders and then use a page filter to include only them. This will work but I'd rather avoid adding columns to an already unruly data table (and would like flexibility to periodically define and track an arbitrary set of traders).

I'm just stuck on a final thing......I would like the pivot table to collapse based on the outcome of a formula.

If let's say A is a 100% complete I would like to automatically collapse A, so it will just show the summary for A. Obviously this can be done by hand, but since there is quite a lot of data I would like to automate the proces.

Pivot Table Should Have No Blank Cells
How do I make sure that my pivot table has no blank cells?

For instance if I have a store with more then 1 barcode of sales against it it will give me the store once at the top left cell of the first column and then the list of barcodes in the column next to it.

I want the store name to appear next to each barcode. Pivot tables make vlookups a pain in the arse to do and I'm sick of having to get around that by copying the pivot table into a blank sheet as values then using the autofilter to filter the blanks and use an ='theabovecell' formula to fill the blanks for all of the columns one by one.

Dependent/Linked Drop Downs In Cells
Now he has another task that I am not having any success with. He has asked if we can make an Excel spreadsheet that allows us to access a list of customer units from a drop down menu which is in another workbook, and once you choose that particular unit, another drop down menu will allow only those customers who are assigned to that unit to be selected from that sub-menu. I hope that makes sense.

Say customer A1 (we will call him Delta Co, 2-1 Aviation) is selected from this first drop down menu (which I haven't figured out how to make yet either). Then this selection would access another worksheet in that other workbook with a new drop down menu with only the four customers in that unit. As an example we will use the names SSG Wilson, SGT Jackson, SFC Jones, and SGT Phillips.

So when the Supply Tech here opens the spreadsheet, the first drop down menu, he will select Delta Co, 2-1 Aviation. Then the next menu will only show four names, and he will select SFC Jones.

Once we get this going, I may be able to figure out the other things the commander wants, if not I will be back.

Preventing The Same Choice Being Made In Two Drop-downs
I am building a template in Excel and I want an error message (or any message) to appear to the user if they select from a static drop-down the same option in column I as in column J (i.e. they have to pick something different in each case).

Issue is I can't exclude any options from the second validation because, essentially, it's the same list. So if, on one row, a person picks "Bill" in column I, they can't pick "Bill" in column J. However, if they have picked "James" in column I, they can pick "Bill" in column J.

Don't know if this is well explained enough but would appreciate any tips on this - I've tried messing about with validation, conditional formatting, putting an IF statement in the next column and so forth but I haven't found a method that isn't convaluted and easy for the user of the template...
