I have some code that runs and loops through each pivot table to refresh it; however, I remmed out the code so that it only loops once - telling it to refresh the first pivot; the thing I'm confused about is that after the code runs, it appears to have refreshed all my pivots. I think it's also important to note the each pivot table is linked to the same data source. (an external ds)
Maybe when this is the case, refresh will always refresh all?
I have a pivot table which has a report filter. The report filter can have anywhere from 20 to 350 values. The user will be able to select multiple values from the listing to produce the table as needed. I would like to be able to display what values were selected in the report filter so that the user can see this information once the pivot table is rendered. Is there any way to display this information either above below or along side of the table itself?
I am using Excel 2011 for Mac, but I also have access to Excel 2011 for Windows. Either way will work. I have been able to get quite a bit of what works on Windows to work with the Mac.
I'm on Mac using Excel 2011. This means I don't have "slicers", which is all my Googling kept turning up.
I have a pivot table with 4 different value columns, and I want to be able to filter it the same way you would a normal table - i.e. remove everything below a specific number in one column, and filter for only specific strings in another column, etc.
Trying to create a basic pivot table from a CSV file for our users. What I've done in the past is open my CSV and then take the option Insert > Pivot Table to create the pivot table from the open CSV/worksheet. My question here is .... how can I save this .XLS and refresh the CSV data within? Or do I need to use an external data source? I don't want to have to use any drivers. I'd love to be able to just point to a CSV or TXT file on our server and that be that.
For something else I have used Web Query strings to point to .php scripts that send back data in XML format. Is this an option?
Again, the goal is for me to create a pivot table and just have our user's open it up and have current/refreshed data within. We can run jobs overnight or on-demand that update the data source.
Is there is some way to filter based on the value in a specific subcolumn.
Using the example of a list of salespeople and their transactions over the year, who sell multiple products, the PT is Sales Person name for the Row Labels, and Type of Product for the columns. The resulting PT has 3 columns, for each of the products - e.g. table, chair couch, and the Values are the total number of that item sold. Is there any way I can filter, so that I will see only those sales people who have sold 3 tables or more lets say. (Thus enabling me to quickly see what other products those sales people have sold.)
(The actual situation is a lot more data heavy than that - it is actually a list of donations for a non-profit, coming in from hundreds of people, across a dozen different categories; I am trying to analyse the extent to which people who gave for a particular category (Direct Mail solicitation) also gave across other categories.
So far I've manipulated things by inserting a '% of row total' value into the PT and then using countif/sumif functions outside of the PT to figure out how many people donated solely to this category (= 100% of row total), and how many donated to other categories too (= more than 0% of row total, less than 100%), which gives me a decent summary of sole donations to this cause vs other categories too, but doesn't visualise what the actual other categories donated to were. I've also investigated making a PT of the existing PT, but I'm not sure if that's even possible...)
(I'm using Excel 2011 for Mac, but if there's some other version that would make this possible, I may be able to use another computer.)
I wonder if is it possible to get data in the pivot table dynamically?
For example, I do insert data through the userform [ new department] and when I run the report I see the new entered data in the pivot table. will I have this new department title in the list box in the pivot able?
I've referenced a few threads this one in particular [Solved] Pivot Tables : Refresh on protected sheet
I've tried the example given in the link and it still does not work. I want to protect the sheets that contain pivot tables, but still be able to refresh them. When I try I get an error. I've tried this a few ways.
My first attempt was to protect the sheets using allowuserinterfaceonly at a workbook open event. This caused warnings as soon as the workbook was opened. Then I tried Dave's suggestion and I get a runtime error 1004: Cannot edit PivotTable on protected sheet.
I've got a workbook with a several pivot tables. For convenience, I've deleted the pivot table source and left the pivots "self-standing". Problem is now when I try to refresh the workbook, I get a "Reference is not valid" error which prevents the workbook from updating.
I have a workbook containing many pivot tables. When I create a pivot table everything works fine. When I close the workbook, reopen it, and refresh the pivot table, the new data will appear at the bottom of the table instead of being inserted in the proper row in the table. Since the table is no longer in sequential order my VLOOKUP functions don't work properly. What do I need to do to get the already established pivot table to refresh properly?
- a list of data - a pivottable based on these data
When moving this worksheet this worksheet to another workbook, the pivot table can't refresh anymore. This throws an error message "Reference is not valid". To work around this problem I need to adapt the datasource. The same occurs if the list and the pivot table are on separate sheet, with the added strange behaviour that, when data an PT are split, it is not possible to move both sheet together.
This would not be a big issue if my problem had to be solved manually. The real problem is that I need to move the sheets from a C# program.
Is there a way to generically sort all pivot rows of a pivot table alphabetically each time the table is refreshed? I have a pivot table that pulls its data from a dynamic named range on a separate worksheet. As users add data to the range and refresh the pivot table the newly added items appear at the bottom of the table rather than alphabetically. I know how to specifically call out a pivot row and have it sort alphabetically (see code below) but I still want to allow users the flexibility of changing the fields and order of the pivot rows so specifically calling out a pivot row by field name isn’t going to work. I need to somehow add code that says: For each pivot row (1 to n, where n = number of pivot rows) sort each in alphabetical order.
I have the following vlookup formula in my spreadsheet.
IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP($A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!$5:$500,67,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP($A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!$5:$500,67,FALSE))
It works perfectly for my current requirement, but it looks at data in a pivot table which is created from a dataset. If I name the columns in the pivot table so instead of looking at column 67 it looks at a name range will this name range change dynamically when the pivot table is refreshed? If not how can I get it to.
vba in excel 2013 pivot table that updates from an online CRM rows are a to h and it can be any number of rows. What I am trying to do is track progress. In column f values indicate probability for success 10 25 45 90, which can go up or down. The pivot table is refreshed to get the latest values from CRM. the update is handled by a connection to the crm not in the vba.
So far I been researching methods to conditionally format values that went up, down or remained the same since the last refresh with up down and across arrows. I have managed to piece together what I think should work but alas it is not. So I have come to you internet.
My code first clears any formatting and goes down the column avoiding null or empty cells, comparing the values in column f to values in column j. I have 3 conditions greater than, less than or equal to, and would like add an icon for each based on the result of the comparison.
Finally when it finishes the column the code copies the current values in the pivot table column f to column j outside the pivot table which i hope to be able to hide once the cf works. The code is below
Can Pivot Table chart add another data from another sheet? I attached the link for this file (Add data1), it is because the file consists of several sheets and I do not know how to show here.
I would like to add the data from the "Rate" sheet into the Pivot Table chart (Chart.PT). I made an example by using normal way (Chart.Case (9)), the column series in the chart is the one I added from the "Rate" sheet. I wonder if I could do the same in pivot table chart.
I am trying to link data from a pivot table we have in excel to a separate excel sheet.
The pivot table contains an up to date list of our inventory, however, we want to take that data and put it in a cleaner looking excel that we can e-mail to customers and publish on our website. Going individually, through every product takes too much time to have an up to date stock every day. Its even difficult to manage if we want to update just once a week.
When I link the cells of the pivot table to the new excel sheet they are constantly changing values as people are constantly editing the filters of the pivot table to look up various things.
I am using Excel 2011 and we have a link data source to the outside SQL Server.
For the 1st step, I linked to the Database and retrieve the data.
2nd step. Sort the data by using the column "Description" Descending. Add another column to the table and put the 1, 2, 3, etc in that column.
3rd step. I clicked on "Refresh" and the new column values are not consistent. I mean they are moving. So, I added another row in the database to test and it becomes very obvious. It can be clearly seen at the following image. The value of "A" should always be "10", but it has been changed to "1" after the refresh.
how I could retain the position of another column after the data refresh?
I have switched from an ageing Mac Powerbook, Excel 2004 for Mac, and an out-of-date version of Firefox to an IMac with Excel 2011 for Mac and Safari as a browser. The only reason why I mention this is because I don't know if it was easier to do this on an older platform (one of those bizzare situations where going forwards is actually a step backwards).
In short I like doing things with Sports data in Excel. Usually I would hit my favourite website for pulling sports data (which incidentally I don't know if this has changed as I've been too busy to do much of this kind of thing for about 4 months - or if it is just a different format on a newer machine/different browser);
The link should be showing NFL results for this year so far (I like the site as it has a handy amount of other sports etc.).
I would usually then go edit/paste special - unicode text and then hit the paste options, use the text import wizard, go delimited, tabs - and usually everything would come in on a row and then I could do what I need to do with it (e.g. use Excel's text functions to get the data - taking spaces out for example - to where I want it to do other things).
The problem I seem to be having now is that when I do the above - things no longer seem to come in on the same row (which makes life difficult for doing things easily with the data). Once things end up on different rows it becomes a pain to do basic things.
In short is there a way round this (or do I need to find another source for my data with tables laid out in a more friendly way to "borrow" data)?
I'm using Microsoft Excel for Mac 2011. I'm creating a drop down box from List within Data Validation. It's only letting my create a list of 17 names. My longest list is 63 names. What do I need to do to create a list that will support that?
I have several competitors balance sheets (around 15), they all have the same structure, what i will like to do is summarize all this data into a pivot table to have a grand total but also be able to filter the data by single competitor.
I have tried to do multiple consolidation ranges, power pivot, pivot but i was unsuccessful, maybe i arranged the data wrong or im not using the right solution. im using excel 2013
