Filter Pivot Table Field By Referencing Another Cell
Sep 26, 2012
I have a worksheet ("VillageReport") that contains several pivot tables. All tables are from the same data source and all pivot tables have "Location" as the first column field. I would like for the tables on this sheet to automatically be filtered when I select a village name from a drop down menu in a cell on this worksheet (C1). So, for example, when I select "Tarzana" in C1, the location field of all pivot tables on this sheet will show only Tarzana (all others are deselected).
a Macro for this? (I have already set up the drop down menu in C1). I have found some examples online but can't seem to adjust the code to fit my workbook. I am not very familiar with VBA.
I have two fields where users enter a security identifier (cell P1) and the declaration date (cell P2) and i'd like to be able to pull all the records from the master table (A1:K10) where the security id matches (column H) and the request date (column C) is <= the declaration date (i've attached a sample file for your reference). I tried using a pivot table but it doesn't let me filter for "less than or equal to" values for the request date.
Is it possible to set up the second level of a report filter based on the value of the first report filter. I have a pivot table that needs two report filters: first is the location and the second is the department. What I want to do is have the user be able to select the location and then only show valid departments for that location. I know that this is possible if I set up a form and have the second field be a query against the first. I can create a calculated field but I cannot put that in the report filter area.
Any way to create a calculated field in an Excel 2010 pivot table that will find all the Transaction Types (Report Filter) with "transportation" in them and make the field Quantity 0 and leave all other quantities the same? I do not want the quantity of transportation added in twice and may not have the flexibility of adding a column to the raw data.
I used the formula below in a calculated field and it does not match the values using the added column to the data file.
I am trying to filter a pivot by one of its pivot field through label filter by referencing a cell with defined name within same workbook. Defined name is updated by selecting a value from list of names. As a result, I would like to have the pivot display results where pivot field contains the selected name.
Sub NameFilter() ' ' NameFilter Macro ' ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Lead Name").PivotFilters.Add _ Type:=xlCaptionContains, Value1:=[Name] End Sub
In building my pivot table my data that I want to show in the column area is showing up as rows stacked on top of each other. In the column section I'm trying to show Total Budgeted Amount next to Total Actual Amount but on the layout it's showing the two stacked on top of each other is there some kind of hidden key that I'm missing?
I am trying to create a macro that will change all pivot fields with a certain name to the value I have the master pivot changed to. For example, I have 5 pivot tables, which each contain the field "Fruit". I want to change the 1st pivot table to "Apples", "Oranges", and "Pears" as active values, and then run the macro, making the other fruit fields also have these values. I can do it for single items, but when I need to do multiple items, I get an error message. I'm not sure how to write in VBA in order to do this.
On my data tab I've got a column for "review date." Some of those cells are blank. When you go to the pivot table, the respective cell for that blank.review date cell displays the date 1/29/14. There is no data in the cell on the data tab, so why would it be displaying 1/29/14? I want it to either say "blank" or just be blank. It does this for every review date cell that is blank.
From what I understand there's no way to do this without using macros. I would perfer not to use macros, but I need my PivotTables to auto-refresh anyways and apparently that will require a macro, so oh well. I'm very new to macro coding so I can't seem to successful apply any of the previous threads about this to my sheet.
I just need my pivot table on sheet "Customer" to filter the customer field based on the value in cell C1. Also I need to make sure the sheet doesn't "freak out" if the value in C1 is either blank, or is a customer value which doesn't exist in the table. Preferably in this scenario it would display nothing on the pivot table, but I don't know if that's possible. I want the sheet/macro to allow an invalid filter value in C1 just so the sheet doesn't lock up until it is corrected.
I also need my workbook to auto-refresh all the pivot tables is that's easy to code in as well.
I manage a team that quote for business. They are targetted on number of quotes per month but then also wins per month, however a win may come a number of months after the original quote was generated.
They work off a spreadsheet where they log:
Quote date (And month) Quote Value ... customer info etc
I started writing my pivot using the Quote month as the main reference point, IE Quote Month in the Row, and then put all the data in the central drop data section... However, there are two immediate problems with this:
They are targetted on quotes generated per month, some business won has come from last year, which they are lifting from the old spreadsheet and puttin in my new one... meaning that quotes they generated in Oct 2012 are now showing up as quotes for October this year.
If the wins span a number of months they are showing in January (if quoted in January) and not in March (when actually won)
Is there a better way of writing my pivot table??? There must be... ideally what I would like is half the table referencing the Quote date and half referencing the order date... but I don't know how to do this? I could probably do this with pages but I would like to show all on one sheet...
1. I am trying to record a macro where I select a Pivot Table. But in the recorded macro "Pivot Table name" is not recorded neither the Pivot Field Property only the Range name is recorded. But on other systems (workstations) these details get recorded. Does this have something to do with excel settings?
2. I uploaded a macro enabled excel file on my company's "sharepoint" the drop down boxes present in the file get populated via a macro in "ThisWorkbook" page but sometimes these drop down boxes don't show any values. What can be the reason for this? Can't share the file because of data security policy of my organization.
why the Group Field option is not available in my Pivot Table. Other Pivot Tables in the same document, using data formatted the same way will let me format the data (the original data is in MM/DD/YY [h]:mm format). I have floored my data so that I can group by hour of the day, but it's not letting me do that.
I have two fields in pivot table, "HATA TOPLAMI" and "SIRA NO". "Hata toplamı" is sum of items, and "Sıra no" is count of items. İ want to divide these two fields and add it to the pivot table, like "HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO". I have tried calculated field function from pivot table. İ wrote "="HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO"". But the summary is false. I want to divide Sum of "Hata toplamı" and count of "Sıra no" but instead it divides with sum of "sıra no". Is there a way to do this?
I have a problem in expanding/collapsing fields in pivot table.
I have source table with GROUP, SUBGROUP, ACCOUNT and AMOUNT. In pivot table I've put GROUP, SUBGROUP and ACCOUNT in Row labels respectivly, and AMOUNT in values. There are same names in SUBGROUP for different names in GROUP. (for example: groups are Production costs and Distribution costs and in each of them there are subgroups Personnel costs and Other costs).
The question is: Is it possible to expand only field Other costs in group Distribution costs while field Other costs in group Production costs stays collapsed?
Ihave a pivot table that takes data from a table, groups the duplicate items and adds their values up - so it shows just one entry for each item. I now want to add a calculated field in there so that I can divide one of the fields into another.
I have attached a simple test file. The data tab has two columns in the pivot range. The third column is _not_ in the pivot range, but is there to show the result I'm trying to get with the pivot.
The idea is to count the number of people whose entry dates are greater than 2/1/2009. My third data column gives a correct result, but a similar formula in the calculated field of the pivot table gives a completely wrong result (a date), where my goal is to generate a zero, a one, or a sum of zeros and ones.
It could be a formatting issue, but that would not explain why all the pivot results have the _same_ wrong answer.
I'm new to PTs and calculated fields, and expect I've made a naive mistake that an expert could easily spot.
I have a pivot table with 2 row filters (dept and name) and then three columns - Year 1, Year 2. I need to add a calculated field inbetween Year 1 and 2 to show the variance in dollars from ( Year1-Year2) as well as an additonal a column that shows the percentage change between the tw o years . I know I can copy this over and add formuals in Excel but I need to retain the features of the pivot tables due to the 2 row filters?
I've created a Pivot Table with 30+ fields. I've recorded the following macro to add the first field. I need modifying the code so that it looks for and adds every field automatically. It'd save a lot of time.
Code: Sub PTAdd() ' ' PTAdd Macro ' ' With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable3").PivotFields("Assigned To") .Orientation = xlRowField .Position = 1 End With End Sub
I have a pivot table Field, with 3 listed items, referencing data from 3 separate worksheets - named 2004, 2005, 2006. ( i renamed them from the original item1, item2 and item3, to 2004, 2005 and 2006. I have now redefined the range in worksheet 2006 by using the Pivot table wizard and going one step back. I have now got 4 listed items in my Field - 2004, 2005, 2006 and item4. I cannot rename item4 to 2006 unless I delete 2006. But do you think it's letting me do that???? So how do I remove unwanted items in a Pivot table field list?
I have a pivot table that picks up the month an invoice was generated. Since I have several invoices for a few months in 2005, I would like to sum all the 2005 invoices into one column. I have the impression that I can insert a field within a Pivot table to sum all the amounts related to 2005.
I know in Pivot tbale we could add calculated field into the data ,but I fail to put the added in the "Page","Row" or the "Column". Eg. in the sheet of data,I have a column " DATE",but no column for year.Is it possible to add year in the "page" without adding anything into the "data" sheet?
