Extracting And Comparing Information From Pivot Table?
Jan 14, 2014
I have some data that I have created a report from. However it doesn't show a "true" picture for the stat we want. I have a pivot table set up with data showing the hours worked for an individual. What I am wanting to do would be to cross reference the data but not sure how to compare data. I have provided some make shift data to see if it is even feasible. The end goal is to get a true picture of P.P.H The data we are able to get is in a horrible format. I would eventually like to automate this in VBA but will work on the later. I thought about doing a vlookup but the is no real matching data for all employees. Some of the names are wrong in one system and there is no matching emp ID.
1. Below I have a sheet stock, which show the maximum qty stock should be by code and size
*ABC1CodeSizeQty Max Should Be 21250011273125003113412500499512500580612500614471250073308756049997560913210826021491182603180128 26041761382601143014978026220159780273701697802838017978029310189780302901997803117020756081992175601250
2. Here is a Sheet sold Article
Sheet Sold Article: *ABC1CodeSizeQty Sold2125001123125003841250062257560436756092378260278826011999780261610978028271197803013129780312913756014
3. Here is pivot table from sheet sold article, which show the qty sold by code and size
PT-Qty Sold: 1 *ABC1 2 3Sum Of Qty 4Code
4. But I want to get additional information in column F form sheet stock that we always keep max stock of each sold article as shown below.
PT-Qty Sold: 2 *ABCEF1 Qty Max Should Be2 3Sum Of Qty 4Code Size Total
Is it possible to get information above in column F by using Formula VLOOKUP in column F or any other formula, without modifying any data layout?
I work in my Client's office and assist in settling construction disputes. Part of this work is to browse/search their server for documents that may assist in strengthening their case.
During this review I have found an excel document which is a text-only version of a pivot table, ie someone has done a copy, paste special, values into this sheet. I need to extract the original source data from this table back into the list format, as the original source of the data cannot be located
The row titles on the left are activity descriptions, the column headers are dates and the data in the body of the table is hours. As an idea of size the data is spread over 213 columns and 45 rows. Their are more blank cells in the table than entries.
What I would like to do is create the data in it's original form ie
Column A; Date Column B; Activity Description Column C; Hours
and have a separate row for each instance of an entry of hours from the pivot table.
I have a master list that is updated in real time by linked worksheets from several people. While my actual report covers 7 managers and 7 different products (“contract types” in this example), I have summarized and simplified the input in the attached file. There are three pertinent dates – the date assigned to the manager (col A), the date completed by the manager (col F), and the date approved by the executive (Col G).
These dates will span month ends and I need to be able to provide monthly reports that provide details on the number of contracts and the dollar value all contracts assigned and completed by the manager during the month (say, February) as well as any contracts assigned in any month which remain uncompleted at the current month-end (e.g. the $7,500 Smith contract assigned on Feb 21st that remains uncompleted and the Feb 26th $200 Jones contract which was uncompleted at Feb 28th, but completed in early March, in this example). Can this be done directly in a Pivot table from the full master list, or will I need to have separate sheets in my workbook where I extract the pertinent records for that month?
I am looking for a way to extract all of the unique items in a Pivot Table. For example, I have a Pivot Table that has category A items and category B items. There may be several B items to one A. For example:
A0 B1 B2 B3A1 B3 B4 B5
Now, what I need is a list that looks like this:
A0 - B1 A0 - B2 A0 - B3 A1 - B3 A1 - B4 A1 - B5
Formatted so that those are two columns. However, in Excel 2007, I cannot set the option to have it repeat the A series items in the Pivot table. Is there some easier way to do this?
I'm using a code to search some information in a pivot table and copy the value in the cells with offset(0,1) and is very very slow, I tryed another method with the using of Find but isn't working: error message: missing object in the with cycle.
Here is the working code:
Dim DataFine, DataInizio, UltimaRiga, Gg As Date Dim NomeMacchina, Plant As String Dim Cl As Object Dim Pr As String Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Here is the code who doesn't work
For i = 6 To 500 Giorno = Sheets("OEE03").Cells(i, 2) With Sheets("01") Pr = Range("A5:A500").Find(Giorno).Offset(0, 1).Value Sheets("OEE03").Cells(i, 9).Value = Pr End With Next
if I use this code on a normal sheet it works but when I try to use it on a Pivot table fields give me always the error message.
I have two spreadsheets. Spreadsheet A has a column of numbers representing employee IDs (thousands of them). But I need to also have the First and Last Name for these employees to cross-reference. Spreadsheet B has the employee ID, Last Name, First Name. Spreadsheet A is large and grouped in a way that I cannot just sort by the employee ID to match up with Spreadsheet B. So basically what I am trying to do:
Look in Spreadsheet B for the employee ID found in Spreadsheet A. If found insert the information in the Last Name and First Name cell for that row copied into Spreadsheet A
Example:Spreadsheet A Employee ID 123456 412378 <blank cell> 512345 685217 654553
Spreadsheet B 123456 Alberts Rick 654553 Johnson Mark 412378 Smith John
So I want for Spreadsheet A to compare with Spreadsheet B. If 123456 is found in Spreadsheet B, then put Alberts and Rick in the corresponding cells next to 123456 in Spreadsheet A.
I receive a workbook on a monthly basis and it arrives in csv format. I need to format it and split it into several pages prior to sending to managers. I'm comfortable with the vba for formatting and splitting it into several pages but I have a problem with some cells that always have data in them in the same (incorrect) fashion.
how to go about fixing these cells and then I can get on with writing that into the macro.
Currently looks like:
A || B || C No requested || No Supplied || Percentage 4 || 4100% 12 || 875% 6 || 350%
Should look like:
A || B || C No requested || No Supplied || Percentage 4 || 4 || 100% 12 || 8 || 75% 6 || 3 || 50%
I was thinking of some kind of Left() formula to extract the leftmost character and place it into it's new cell BUT realise that sometimes I might need to extract 2 (or perhaps even more) characters.
I'm trying to extract information from one specific cell, and place it into another. This other thread kind of does what I'm looking for. I wish to extract from the following; "20/04/2009 5:42:51 AM". Placing the date in one cell, and the time in another. All spacing within the quotation marks is respective of the cell. Obviously dates and times would vary.
I am trying to extract only partial information from a cell that contains mutliple entries without seperator. Ie I want to get 3rd reference from cell containing abcde(I want to extract onto another sheet the "c" and only the "c")
I'm looking to find a way to extract an email address an a reference number from an email receipt that i have extracted to excel. The problem is when I paste the information its pastes onto multiple rows and not a single row.
I'm using this formula to extract the email address and can do something else to get the ref number out however the results are on multiple lines which is not good to me.
I have attached a document to show you how the data extractS on (EXAMPLE TAB) The information I want to extract is the stuff in Red. I then want the results to look like the Results Tab in the example.
- 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.
I am doing an export of info from one system and running an excel spreadsheet to manipulate the data. The problem is..That the exported data sometimes will export info into combined cells. Look at attachment
This is what I need...
I need the ability to search all the info on the POC tab and pull it into the info tab, by searching on a system and returning the POC info..
I have tried the vslookup formula and it will return the first row not the second row which is where the info is that I need (shown Highlighted) =VLOOKUP(A4,POC!A2:b50,2,FALSE)
I am trying to write a formula which will extract information from a given set of cells. The information format is
What I need to do is pull out the information which precedes the second. so in the above the answer would be XXXX-YYYY. I was thinking of using a mid or left, right formula till I discovered that the # of characters for X, Y and Z can be any length ie they could be
X-YYYY-ZZZZ XXXX-Y- XX-YYYY-ZZZZZ
So the formula needs to find the second dash (-) and extract information prior to it.
I use a spreadsheet (FY-2012) to track approx 700 work requests. I enter the work request number (name of the spreadsheet) in column A, which is hyperlinked to the actual work request spreadsheet. I would like to automatically fill in this cell with the information entered in cell J42 of the work request entered in column A. Cell A5 of the tracker "FY-2012" indicates Work Request "BB-12003". Cell D5 of the tracker "FY-2012" indicates the completion date. I would like to extract the completion date entered in cell "J42" of Work Request "BB-12003" and have it automatically fill in Cell D5 of the tracker "FY-2012".
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 worksheet with two pivot tables, one of which is visible to the user. Ideally, the user should be able to change the "Row Label" field settings of the visible pivot table and then press an "update button" that then adds the same field to the second pivot table.
Ideally, the ordering of the fields should also be made similar between the two tables, though this is of less priority.
I imagine it would be something in the style of:
"If number of Pivot1 active row label fields = X then Pivot 2.AddRowLabelField = Pivot1.RowLabelField(X) end if"
attached is a spreadsheet 6 people in my area use daily(ive copied and pasted the sheet in question to a new worksheet, as the file was too big). Ive been trying for about 3 days now to make a pivot table to summarise this data.
I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:
Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully
But, I need it to be:
1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter
Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.
My problem is I cannot copy from a Form Control drop down box, and I need to do this for ~10 drop down boxes in about 200 xls files. The files follow a template so the drop down button Inputs are uniform. Here is some more detail:
Iâ€™m building an Access Database so that our data (currently in many, many Excel Spreadsheets) can be efficiently queried. The old system was that when asset data was collected, the data would be entered into an Excel spreadsheet, using a Template. So for example:
Name Main Street Pipe High Street Pipe
Ref No. 12345 12346
Installation date 22/08/13 19/07/12
X Coordinate 55667 99212
Y Coordinate 77889 12364
We have hundreds of these files, but I managed to get all the files in one folder and Paste and Transpose the data from the relevant Cell Ranges in each file (using a VB sub) into ONE summary sheet. Success; or so I thought.
Unfortunately for one generation of the template (people changed them slightly every year), the template had people enter information into Drop Down Menus. Not a problem when theyâ€™re associated with a cell, but these were free floating Form Controls.. so you canâ€™t actually click and copy from them, or call them in VB as you would a specific cell.. afaik.
So my issue is how can I extract the data from those Form Buttons? Iâ€™ll try and provide as much info as I can:
Firstly I tried to find some sort of identifier for each Form Button. The dropdowns are called Combo Boxes, (Developer tab > Insert > Combo Box (Form Control) ), and when you select them (by right clicking) and hit the View Code button in Developer Tab > Controls the following shows up in VB.
Iâ€™m guessing that the number is related to the button so thatâ€™s one useful thing, an identifier of sorts. Thereâ€™s no actual code there though really from what I can see.. My problem is I have no idea how to extract from DropDown44!
The range of values in the drop down comes from a separate sheet where thereâ€™s just a list of the values. There arenâ€™t any cells linked to the drop downs though. If I enter a cell in (Right Click) Format Control > Cell link: then it prints the number (e.g. 4) of the value in the range. So if the drop down options are â€śMondayâ€ť, â€śTuesdayâ€ť, â€śWednesdayâ€ť, â€śThursdayâ€ť and â€śThursdayâ€ť is selected, the linked cell says: â€ś4â€ť.
They didnâ€™t link a cell, then I could call that cell in a VB sub and the job would be done. Unfortunately they didnâ€™t, so I tried Recording a Macro and selecting the drop down form control.. That didnâ€™t really work, except if I right clicked it, I got some more info from the macro VB:
ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Drop Down 19")).Select
So is my drop down an Array? My understanding of an Array is that itâ€™s a list of arguments.. all I get there is the name of the button. I am not experienced in VB so this is as far as Iâ€™ve got. Perhaps I can get a sub to select the button using the above line, but I need the info from it, i.e. which value is currently selected in the Drop Down.
(Using Excel 2010 but the .xls files are from ~2005)
I have data that develops 3 to 4 pivot table each day. I would like to know if there is a way to change the date on one of the pivot table and have the other pivot tables date change to match with the first pivot table. At this time I am going to all 3 or 4 pivot table to select the correct date. The date is in the page position of the pivot table. I have attached a small sample of the data and the pivot tables.
i have a workbook blank template for my colleagues to fill in, they fill in this blank template and save it under the serial number of the item they are creating. However a lot of errors exist when they input the serial number inside the workbook where the serial number is a duplicate of a former serial number.
Anyhow i was wondering is there any way when they input the serial number into the worksheet that i could get it to save in a separate workbook and then have conditional formatting to check those serial numbers in the workbook to see if they match?
To minimize the amount of time I spend building reports each day I consistently reuse existing pivot tables for my daily reporting by deleting the data a pivot table is based on and inserting new data. When I refresh the pivot table the new information is shown.
However, I have noticed that the drop down filters in all my pivot tables are showing selections that existed in previous data but are not in the current set of data.
Is there a way to update the pivot so that the drop down filters only show selections that are pertinent to the current set of data?
