Excel 2010 :: How To Cascade Slicer Selection To Other Slicers

May 16, 2014

I've inherited a workbook that has about two dozen or so pivots spread over a few worksheets that source data from an analysis services cube.

There are multiple slicers attached to the various pivot tables and charts

Some of the reports (worksheets) have a business rule that certain filters need to be selected in specific combinations for the data that's returned to make sense.

eg the fact table holding the measures has a billmonth and processmonth that's linked to role playing date dimensions. For the report to reconcile the data correctly both the billmonth and processmonth need to be set to the same value. So if I select 2014-03 on the billmonth slicer, I need to set the processmonth slicer to 2014-03 as well. And there's another pivot on the same worksheet that's linked to a different fact table that's at the year grain, and for that bit to make sense it should be set to 2014.

My task is to simplify this by propagating the billmonth value to the processmonth and the billyear, but I haven't played with vba in about 7 or so years, so I'm very out of practise.

How do I use vba to monitor a slicer for changes? and if it does change how to set another slicer to a dynamic .Value? It can be assumed that the value will always exist in the downstream slicers, if it doesn't the user has bigger problems than an excel error.

I've recorded the macro of me selecting the same date on both slicers but it doesn't give me much to go on

ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_DimDateBill.DateHierarchyFinancial1"). _
VisibleSlicerItemsList = Array( _
"[DimDateBill].[DateHierarchyFinancial].[Fin Month].&[201403 FM09]")
ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_DimDateProcess.DateHierarchyFinancial"). _
VisibleSlicerItemsList = Array( _
"[DimDateProcess].[DateHierarchyFinancial].[Fin Month].&[201403 FM09]")

Also it should disallow multiple selects, is there code to monitor that as well?

Excel 2010 :: Using Slicers On Tables?

Loop Within Array - Transfer Selection From One Slicer To Another?

Jan 8, 2014

I need to transfer selection(s) from slicer Country to Country1 (they cannot be connected due to workbook functionality).

User can make a single or a multiple selection in the country slicer.

So basically using CUBERANKEDMEMBER I got the output from slicer Country (in cell A1 for now) and used it as input in VBA for slicer Country1

ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_Country1").VisibleSlicerItemsList = _
Array("[01_Feed].[Dosage].&[" & Range("A1"]")

I have to use VisibleSlicerItemsList as it is an external data source (so cannot use ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches(Slicer Name).SlicerItems(Slicer Valuel).Selected = True/false)

Now, when user chooses 2,3 or more countries, they will be in cells A2, A3, A4... etc.

So, if the user selected 2 countries I would need to run a following code:

ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_Country1").VisibleSlicerItemsList = _
Array("[01_Feed].[Dosage].&[" & Range("A1"]", "[01_Feed].[Dosage].&[" & Range("A2"]")

Now, is there any way to loop this within the array, how many cells it should take?

For i = 1 to ..
code from above
Next i

won't work because then it only takes the last value, so I kind of have to loop it within the array.

Make One Slicer Mirror Filters Of Another Slicer

Mar 28, 2014

I' have two slicers that each control two pivot tables. The slicers both are for the same field ("Department") but I guess the pivot table structure differences don't allow me to simply have one control all four tables.

Since both slicers contain the exact same options from the same field on the same origin table, I would like to problematically ensure that when department "A" is selected on slicer1, it is also selected on slicer2. When departments "A, B, & C" are selected on slicer1, the same are selected on slicer2. When filters are cleared... you get the picture.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Input Box For Range Selection

Sep 6, 2012

Excel 2010. I have a macro, stored in a workbook.

The macro is: collecting data from another opened workbook,processing the data,saving the processed data in yet another workbook.

The workbooks' names it is operating on are hardcoded in the macro. I'm trying to make it more flexible, that is to allow user to specify both source and target workbooks along with the data columns.

The workflow follows:

User opens both source and target workbooks,User opens the workbook with the macro,User runs the macro (with a button for example),Macro prompts the user to select range in the source workbook,Macro "memorizes" the range and the source workbook's name from user's selection,Macro prompts the user to select range in the target workbook,Macro "memorizes" the range and the target workbook's name from user's selection,Macro processes the data.

I found out that this can be achieved with Application.InputBox("Select cell(s)", Type:=8) method. However there are some issues that I was not able to solve playing with the returned value's methods:

The .InputBox defaults to active workbook. I was able to select another opened workbook only with Ctrl+Tab combination, but it will not work with the end users - they are too poor with these tricks. Is there a better, more intuitive way to allow user selecting a workbook?I was not able to get the workbook's name from the .InputBox returned value property. I was trying with .application.caption and .application.activeworkbook.name - none of these worked. They returned name of the workbook with macro, not the one with selected range. How to get the workbook's name from given cells range?

Excel 2010 :: Cell Selection - Set Comma To Appear For All Thousands

Apr 12, 2014

Question 1: how i can automatically add a cell into a formula by just clicking the cell to be added? in other words, say i typed an "=" sign in a cell and want to add a number of cells just by clicking the mouse without having to type the "+" sign after selecting each cell. the formula will just appear as > =A1+B1+C1 by default with each click of the mouse. Is there a default setting that can be set so the plus sign will appear with each click?

Question 2: how can i set a comma to appear for all thousands, (i.e. 1,000) without having to format each cell individually to show commas?? in other words that any spreadsheet i open will always insert comas for numbers larger by a thousand?

Excel 2010 :: Export Selection To MSDOS CSV File With 12 Commas?

Nov 28, 2012

Currently using Excel 2010 and looking for a macro that will export a selection (will be part of a column that I select) and export as an MS-DOS CSV file (no quotes around values, each row on different line) with 12 commas after each value in the selection.

Attached is an example of how I would like the output to appear, with the selected values only have four numbers in them. If possible, I would like a dialog box to appear for saving the file to a directory and name that I chose.

Excel 2010 :: How To Auto Populate Data Based On ComboBox Selection

Jan 27, 2012

I have a question on how I could populate data using a combo box selection in Excel 2010.

For example, I have a table with values in Sheet 1, & below that table there is a combo box whereby another table of values can be populated based on the selection of the combo box.

Maybe to make it clearer...

Table 1
Name | Address | Phone number
Andy | Avenue 2 | 999
John | Road 5 | 998

Combo box (selection of names): John

Data derived from combo box - Table 2
Name | Address | Phone number
John | Road 5 | 998

how I could solve this Also, do let me know if this can be done without the use of VBA.

Excel 2010 :: Selection Change Event On Text Inside Textbox?

Jun 10, 2014

As part of a program I'm writing in VBA (for Excel 2010), I have a textbox in a user form used as an interface to write a formula in cells in Excel.The resulting value of a formula from a cell is loaded up into the textbox. It would be shown in the textbox like "See 1.2 and 1.3" where the formula in the cell is


This is just used as an example but the principle is there. It is worth noting that I’m writing this for very inexperienced Excel users but I need them to be able to edit the string part of the formula without breaking the formula.

However where I’m struggling is to pick up a selection change event inside a text box already selected. I need to be able to check if the textbox.SelStart is within an address value or within the string in the textbox.

The event Enter won’t work if the user is already editing the textbox (i.e. typing stuff) and then clicking or using the keyboard arrow to move the cursor somewhere else inside the textbox. I don’t think the event Change is the solution either as it would mean that the user would have already typed something and as a result the formula may already be broken.

I have had a good look around and I didn’t find an event for a selection change inside a textbox. Does it exists and/or is there a way that would have the same result?

Excel 2010 :: Hide / Show Textboxes And Labels Based On Combobox Selection?

Jul 8, 2014

I have created a UserForm that has a ComboBox and depending on the number selected I want it to show that number of Labels/TextBoxes...

So if I select "0" nothing is shown, if I select "1" one set of Labels/TextBoxes is shown, select "2" and two sets of Labels/TextBoxes are shown... but also if I have selected "2" and then select "1" I want the second set to be hidden again...

Also I know I should have renamed the Label/TexBoxes to make it easer but I was adding things and making it up as I went along...

I'm using Excel 2010 on windows 7.

Sub UnHide_NewRoutings()
If (Engineering.ComboBox2.value) = "0" Then
Engineering.Label4.Visible = False
Engineering.TextBox5.Visible = False
Engineering.Label9.Visible = False
Engineering.TextBox9.Visible = False

How To Cascade Validation Lists

Jul 19, 2014

I will have users filling out cells (e.g. on Input sheet) and want to cascade the drop-down lists based on selections made. The basis for these selections is on the LISTS sheet.

So for Area, if they choose AREA1, then the Main Activity should only have 1,2,3,4,5 as available drop-down options and if they choose 1, then Secondary Task should only have A or B as options in that drop-down and finally Supervisor option should only be XX.

My question is, is there any quick way to create these cascading drop-down lists from the structure I have currently in place on the LISTS sheet. Or am I going to have to rearrange the data on a separate sheet? I will have up to 40 'AREAS' with dependent selections.

Multiple % Discounts Off Base $ Price That Do Not Cascade?

Mar 3, 2014

Cell B23 contains an invoice base price in $'s formatted to 2 x decimal places Cell I4, I5,I6,I7,I8 all contain various percentage discounts formatted to 2 decimal places

I am trying to creat a formula in cell I23 that will subtract the discount of each of "I" range cells - lowest number to highest- in order. But each discount has to be subtracted from original invoice value in cell B23

Cell B23=$1660.00
Cell I4=14.00%
Cell I5= 3.50%
Cell I6= 3.00%
Cell I7=1.50%
Cell I8=2.00%

I have tried using =B23*(1-I4)*(1-I5)*(1-I6)*(1-I7)*(1-I8) But this appears to be a cascading discount By my manual calculations answer should be $1261.60 But above calculation gives me $1289.94

Can't Reconnect Slicers After Changing Data Source

Feb 11, 2014

I have a workbook with some pivot tables connected to a single slicer. My macro needs to disconnect the pivots from the slicer, change the data source, and reconnect the slicer. When my code gets to reconnecting the slicer it bugs out as if the data source is not the same for all the pivot tables (also doesn't let me reconnect manually). But when I look at the source, it is all the same and correct. If I manually set the data source the slicer reconnects just fine. Why is my code causing problems with the slicer?

Here is my code for setting the data source. Pretty sure this is the code that is causing problems for me.

newaddress = "$B:$" & Mid(Cells(1, YTDcolumn).Address(), 2, 2)
.PivotTables("PivotTable1").ChangePivotCache ActiveWorkbook. _
PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:="TOP250Excel!" & newaddress, _

Here is my code for reconnecting the slicer connections.

ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_Top250Excel_cypheren_Query_Name"). _
PivotTables.AddPivotTable (.PivotTables("PivotTable1"))

Change SourceData For All Pivots In Workbook While Disconnect / Connect Slicers?

Jan 28, 2014

I have 6 Slicers in called "Quantrix" The slicers are called REG, DIRECTOR, AREA MANAGER, AOI, DMA, AG and CLOCK. I have 15 pivots (6 in Quantrix tab and 9 in a tab called "Pivots").

I have vba code to update all pivot cache (showing 1 pivot update below) ...

PHP Code: 

    Max = Sheets("eLink_Raw").Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    Sheets("Quantrix").PivotTables("Quantrix 1").ChangePivotCache ActiveWorkbook. _
      PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
      Sheets("eLink_Raw").Range("A1:AW" & Max).CurrentRegion _
      , Version:=xlPivotTableVersion14) 

Here is the code to disconnect SLICER, update source data for ALL pivots then reconnects slicer... This works great but its ONLY 1 SLICER

PHP Code: 

 Dim vPivots As Variant
    Dim i As Long
    Max = Sheets("eLink_Raw").Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    With ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_REG").PivotTables

I then refreshed the pivot table which worked but the slicer still contains information that I input a week ago. I deleted the slicer an cretaed a new one but again, it still contains data from a week ago even thought the pivot doesn't. How to make the slicer refresh to show contains of the pivot?

Select Fields In Slicer With Macro

Apr 10, 2014

I have two slicers, say slicer 'F' that slices on fields 'x', 'y' and 'z' and slicer 'E' that slices on fields 'a', 'b', 'c'.

I select these values by using a very simple macro. For instance to select z in slicer "F", I have the following code:

With ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("F")
.SlicerItems("x").Selected = False
.SlicerItems("y").Selected = False
.SlicerItems("z").Selected = True
End With

However, I want the selected fields to have more flexibility than which is possibly by coding them in VBA. Ideally, I would want to write the selected fields in a cell in Excel (also if there are more of them!), then let the macro retrieve these fields and use them to apply to the slicer. So I write in a cell slice on X and Z, the macro picks this up and performs this operation.

Is this possible?

Sorting Grouped Dates In Slicer?

Jun 12, 2014

In my pivot table I have "Due Date" with is a column label.

I grouped the dates into weeks by using the "days" grouping and using 7 days.

I created a slicer to allow the user to select with week they want, but the slicer is sorted as though it's a text field and not a date field.


6/1/2015 - 6/7/2015
6/13/2016 - 6/19/2016
6/15/2015 - 6/21/2015
6/16/2014 - 6/22/2014

Group Dates In A Pivot Table Slicer

Dec 31, 2013

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.

Slicer Connections Lost When Copying To New Workbook

Jun 12, 2014

The main objective of the code is to create different workbooks that are going to be send to different people(with only their data).

I am using the filter to delete the data that I don't need and then create a new workbook, save it and close it. This has been working fine.

The issue is that I have two slicers in the 'DistMenu' sheet. When I open again the newest workbook, they slicers are disconnected to the pivot tables. This can be fix manually by selecting the slicers --> PivotTables Connections etc

I use the macro recording to get a code and work from there, but is giving me error '1004' "Unable to get the PivotTables property of the Worksheet class".

Slicer Hierarchy Value Sorting - Selected Values Won't Sort To Top

Nov 25, 2013

I have two slicers that are in a hierarchy. These are attached to a Pivot table whose data source is an OLAP cube. Every Partner Parent is part of a Partner Group:

Partner Parents Slicers.png

My problem is that when I click SI Alliance in Partner Group, the Partner Parent slicer does not re-sort in any way. The corresponding selected Partner Parents are scattered throughout the alphabetical list. However, in a different document, I have slicers in a similar situation, except their Pivot table’s data source is a SQL Server database. When I click on a member of the higher up group (Accenture Global Client) the lower level group (Microsoft Account Name) sorts to show only the selected values at the top of the list:

This is with all selected - Accenture Slicers All.png

This is with just one Accenture Global Client selected. Note how the selected Microsoft Account Names have moved to the top of the list - Accenture Slicers Selected.png

How I can configure my Partner Parent/Partner Group slicers to behave like these Accenture/Microsoft slicers? Is there something that I can change in Excel or in the OLAP cube to make this happen? I have already tried right-clicking the slicer and going to Slicer Settings. The settings on the Parent/Partner Group slicers mimic those of the Accenture/Microsoft slicers exactly.

Removing Blanks From Pivot Table Slicer Within Macro

Feb 20, 2014

I created a macro to create the beginning of a pivot table- just the rows and slicers, because when I tried making a longer macro to create the entire pivot table (formatting, etc) I couldn't get the macro to work.

So I do get all the vertical rows I want, and I do get all the slicers I want. But I get blank space. I think this is because the pivot table is created from another tab, and the length of data in that tab will vary from file to file (I'm doing another 30 or so of these, all with varying amounts of data, but the same data categories).

Anyway, I get slicers, but in addition to getting the categories I want, I also get "(blank)" below the names in the slicers. Is there a way to add some code to the macro to remove the blanks so I don't get this field?

I have copied and pasted the macro below, with identifying data changed.

How To Set Selected Slicer Or Filter Items On One Pivot Equal To Another

Sep 26, 2013

I have two pivot tables, both of which source the same sheet of data. Each record in the data has two fields, Region ID of person and Region ID of facility, that reference the same list of Region IDs via vlookup (it's just numbers 1-12). Either one or both can be blank. One pivot outputs counts by person Region ID, and the other, by facility Region ID.

Using a combination of nested IF statements and vlookups, I tried making a third Region ID field that could be used as a slicer to control both tables, but what I end up with is an undercount in one of the tables. The only thing that works so far to output the correct counts is having two separate slicers, the facility Region ID being the slicer for one and the person Region ID being the slicer for the other. If the end user wants to see counts for one Region ID, they have to manually set one slicer equal to the other. But what we want is just for the end user to be able to control both tables just by pushing a single number, Region IDs 1-12.

I can make one of the slicers hidden but then how do I get the hidden slicer to automatically select Region ID values equal to the nonhidden slicer? Alternatively, I could somehow program a combo box or list to control the two different slicers, then the slicers would be hidden and the user would see only the combo box/list. (I guess in either of these alternatives, I could just use a report filter instead of a slicer; either way, I still have to get items in one to automatically select based on the user's selected items in another).

FYI, some of the options I looked up involved PowerPivot, which I do not have access to. VBAs/macros are ok.

Anchoring Pivot Chart And Slicer Without Locking Entire Worksheet?

Jul 19, 2012

I am trying to create a "dashboard" style report using a pivot table and pivot chart with slicers. All of these objects (table, chart and slicers) are in the same worksheet. However, the users of the report (read executive management) are not very Excel savvy and I want to protect the format of the report. So, I want to protect the sheet and only allow access to the Pivot table options. However, in order to make the slicers usable, it appears that I have to allow them to edit objects. This unfortunately means that they can then move those objects (the Slicers and Chart).

I am looking for a way to lock the slicers and pivot chart in position. I have already accounted for column width changes created by modification of the pivot table parameters by selecting the "Don't move or size with cells" option under PivotChart Tools > Size > Format Chart Area > Properties > Object positioning. This is the default/locked-out setting for the slicers.

Copy / Move Slicer Linked Pivot Charts To New Workbook

Mar 15, 2013

I have a Reporting workbook I designed. There is a "Parent" workbook with the following design.

It has 6 Pivot Tables on a Sheet called "Data"

It has 6 Pivot Charts that were created from these tables on a page called "Summary"

These 6 Pivot Charts are all linked through a pair of slicers.

There is a "control" page which has instructions and buttons that trigger "Refresh All" and "Create Child Workbok".

This design is so that someone unfamiliar with excel could conceivably create the final product.

Essentially I have written/put together VBA to Create a new workbook "child" which has should be a funcitoning copy of the "parent".

The problem is the copiedmoved (I have tried both) Pivot Charts no longer update/refresh when the pivot tables change. I have script that reconnects the Pivot Tables to the Slicers. Slicers are fully funcitonal. Links in cells are fully functional.

Some of this code might look familiar.

Recorded macro. The hope is to insert a excel formatted table a set number of times. I have found a loop code that references a Cell A1 and repeats that amount of times. So if A1= 10. There should be 10 tables inserted. However on the second time there is a fault with the table name. I need the name to change each time the loop is run. ie Table1, Table2, Table3 etc up until the loop stops (A1 contents).

I am using excel for windows 2010. The macro that i have so far is below.
