# Maximum Value In A Column In A Pivot Table

Jan 22, 2010

I am new to working with Pivot tables, and am working on a data set of survey results. We'd like to build a heat chart into the pivot tables for each column of data. To do this, I need to determine what the maximum and minimum values in each column are, and base the cell coloring on the difference between min and max values by quartile. Ideally, this would be able to update when the column headers change (from a list of departments, to countries for instance).

## Take Top 5 Maximum From Pivot Table To Make Chart?

Aug 14, 2014

Or at least with a formula?

This is the chart formula for the report:

=SERIE(Report!\$B\$10;Report!\$A\$11:\$A\$30;Report!\$B\$11:\$B\$30;1)

## Return Column Number Of Maximum Value From A Table

Jan 2, 2010

I have a got a table ( 10x30) with random numerical values.

How can I return a column number with maximum value?

Values will be changed periodically so the maximum number could be in different column each time

Example:
A-B-C-D-E-F-G
1-2-3-4-5-6-7
2-6-8-18-1-1-8
2-5-6-9-12-1-7

The results will be 4.

## Adjust Column Label Selection Multiple Pivot Tables Based On One Pivot Table

Aug 16, 2013

I have a pivot table in the first sheet which includes the field "Date" as a column label.

In the remaining sheets, except for one, there are pivot tables based on the same underlying dataset which also include the field "Date" as a column label.

I would like to adjust the selection (i.e., exclude some dates) from the column label in the first sheet and see if it is possible to make the same adjustments automatically to the pivot tables in the remaining sheets as well.

note that the field "Date" is used as a Column label, i.e., it is not a Report filter.

## Column Shows In Pivot Table But Doesn't In Source Table?

Oct 5, 2011

There is pivot table for some reason the last column (YEAccts), which sums all the other columns values is exluding the 1st column for some reason. This "YEAccts" shows up fine in the pivot table "field list". And I followed the source for this and it's a table in a different tab that pulls data from an access query connection.

The name of the column that is summing up the rest of the columns is "YEAccts", but for the life of me I can't seem to find where this column is in the source table tab or even in the access query where the data is being pulled from.

How to find this "YEAccts" column? Also, why would it exclude not summing up the data in the first column?

## How To Show In One Pivot Table A Current Column And A Proposed Column

Jun 20, 2014

I am trying to figure how to show in one pivot table a current column and a proposed column. I have 15k rows of data. My data columns are employee, month, task, hours, proposed month. I can get a table that has months as columns and tasks as rows with sum of hours. What I would like to do is incorporate the proposed month, so that it shows hours in the months by current and proposed. That way my result would be January current, January proposed columns etc. I can change the propsed months by formulae so I want to play with the proposed task month the refresh the pivot table to see the results.

## Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table Reference Is Not Valid When Moving Data And Pivot Table Together?

Mar 19, 2013

On a worksheet, I created:

- 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.

## More Than One Column In Pivot Table

May 10, 2007

my table has the following fields: Zone (north, East, west, south), depots in each zone (D101, D102 in North and D201, D202 in South),product code (S101, S102...S100) then sales data for three stores 1, 2, 3.

My original table has the depot code, zone it belongs to and sales of each of the product made to each of the store per depot.

In the Pivot table, I shall need to show Branch and the Product codes on the row-side, and require store codes 1,2,3 to appear on the columns. The data area thus needs to be a summation of D101, D102 for North (for each of the product-codes) and D201, D202 for the South region.

MY PROBLEM:

I am unable to display 1,2,3 as separate columns.

## Add Free Column To A Pivot Table

Aug 8, 2012

I have a pivot table with slicers to easily filter the data. I need to add a column with editable, free text that is filtered along when using the slicers.

If I try adding a column in my data source of the pivot and I change one value in the pivot then all rows that have this value change along.

## Count Zero In Pivot Table Column

Apr 18, 2014

How can I use a macro to count the number of 0 values in a particular column (one of the Values columns) of a pivot table?

I'd like to use the .PivotTables(1) if possible (rather than referring to the whole sheet range column).

## Pivot Table Second Row (column Headings)?

## Description Column In Pivot Table

Aug 10, 2009

I often use pivot tables to summarize accounting data. I wish to summarize the data by account number, but also wish to display the account description next to each account number. Both the account number and account description are separate columns in my original table of data.

I've always managed to do this by the use of lookup formulas after the formation of the pivot table in a column outside the pivot table, but it would be preferable to have those descriptions as part of the table.

If I designate both the account number and account description as row labels, they land on two different lines.

## Pivot Table Column Alignment

Apr 14, 2009

I feel stupid asking this, but for some reason I am having trouble keeping alignment of columns in a Pivot Table....

I have a Column of text in a pivot table and I am just trying to center the darn thing... but no matter what I have tried, when I refresh the table it goes back to left-aligned....

I have Preserve Formatting set on... in the Table Options.

## Pivot Table And Column Headers

May 21, 2006

I want to include columns in my Pivot Table where there is no data for that column. For example, I want to show 12 columns, one for each month, but my data only has 9 months of values.

## Create Pivot Table: Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File

Jan 4, 2010

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.

## VBA - Adjust Pivot Table Included Fields To Match Another Pivot Table

Mar 14, 2013

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"

## Pivot Table Query: Make A Pivot Table To Summarise The Data

## Pivot Table - Data To Be Concatenated On Next Column

Apr 29, 2009

I have some data a pivot table I would like them to be concatenated on next column. The X signifies the Blank cell on the pivot table. Now I can concatenate (in 1 cell) using VBA but I don't know how loop thru the Blank cells. I have about 1000 rows of data. I would like Data like this:

Investment Price Source
009451AP0 FTID FTID 009451AP0 Total x
967673Z RWP RWP 967673Z Total x
AA.CDS23 MarkIt Markit AA.CDS23 Total x
AACE.BD10BA FTID FTID, RWP RWP
AACE.BD10BA Total x

## Update Column Characteristics In Pivot Table

May 22, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that has a top row of weeks ranging from 1/1/2012 to 1/1/2015

I am making a pivot table to show a sum of each column by user (in column A of the source). My problem is this, I need to show the dates and there related values in the top row of the pivot table, and the users as the rows. My problem is two fold - how to display dates across the top row of the pivot (only when a value exists) and then how to make sure the value is a sum rather than a count.

## Pivot Table Not Showing New Data In Column

Sep 6, 2012

I have added some new data into an exisitng column

IT is just not showing in distributed between the new names in that field

## Loop Through Data In Second Column Of Pivot Table

Sep 27, 2012

I have a pivot table with two columns: Code and Quantity. I want to loop through the Quantity column and hide all values = 0. I can do this easily by incorporating this into my code:

Code:
Type:=xlValueDoesNotEqual, DataField:=pt.PivotFields("Sum of Quantity"), Value1:=0

However, I have a "(blank)" code in all pivot tables. I do this because occasionally there is no data to organize in a pivot table. Having a "(blank)" option will allow my code to work even when there's no data. Therefore, I want to keep blank visible at all times. The above code hides "(blank)", however.

The below code is what I've tried with no success.

Code:
Set pf = pt.PivotFields("code")
For Each pi In pf.PivotItems
If pi.PivotFields("Sum of Quantity").Value = 0 Then

## Concatenate Column Names From Pivot Table

Apr 11, 2013

Pivot Table. I have a large data set and have used a pivot table to summarise the COUNT of each row (Objects) for each Column Name (that is, I did what Pivot Tables do).

What I'd like to do in a new column is show a string of all the column names per row name.

I have a data set that looks like this:

Sheet3

A
B
C

1
Object
Description
Class

[Code]...

So I can pivot table to work with other analysis, but what I'd really like to get is a list of unique "Objects" (easy) with all the related "Class"es listed in column (or straight to concatenated). I can concatenate using Chip Pearson's StringConcat.

Here is an example:

Sheet3

F
G
H
I
J
K

1
Object
Countif

[Code]..

You can see Chip's Function in col K. What I'd like to happen is in Cols H to J be automatically populated. (For this example, I have typed in what I'd like the result to look like)

I considered using Vlookups (with helper column for 2nd & successive instances), INDEX/MATCH with SMALL to get 2nd+ instances and even lengthy IF statements. The main problem with IF is that in the real data set, I can have over 30 Classes.

I looked at Pivot table to see what I could do but haven't much experience in manipulating past regular feature.

I also took a cut&paste of the pivot table (as shown in part below) to see what I could do.

Here is a clip straight from the Pivot Table:

Pivot

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
H
I
J

[Code]..

And one from the cut&paste of the pivot table, which also shows the desired outcome in the right hand column:

Sheet2

A
B
C
D
E
F
G

[Code]...

I would also be fine using VBA, but its been a while since I did any basic coding so I wouldn't really stand a chance of starting from scratch.

## Search Value In Column However To Refresh Pivot Table

Dec 1, 2008

Basically my search value is in B4 however to refresh pivot table
this is fine when I enter plain text within B4

I have trouble with an vba code using pivot tables

## Pivot Table Exceeds Row/Column Limit

Sep 11, 2006

Apart from the obvious restriction imposed by the virtual size of a spreadsheet,are there any other factors that would induce a problem with size. I have a set of data with 3000 rows and 15 columns. I would like to organise this using 5 of the data columns as rows in the pivot, 1 as column and 1 as data.

I have a number of sets of data which work perfectly, but one set, the largest, fails when I attempt to add the data field.

## Hide Grand Total For Just One Column In Pivot Table

May 19, 2013

I have a pivot table the has a listing of potential customers and I have included meeting dates in this table. The problem that I have is that the Grand total adds up all the dates and I have a total that doesn't make sense.

I want to hide the total for the 'Date Meeting Setup' column and keep it for the others. Can this be done??

## Pivot Table - How To Use Same Data For Filter And Column Header

May 13, 2014

I have a list of S/N with Pass/Fail result next to it. A specific S/N can appear several times in the list:

SN...Result
-------------
111...FAIL
111...FAIL
111...FAIL
111...PASS
222...PASS
333...FAIL
333...FAIL

When creating a pivot table of SN vs. Result (count) I get:

****|FAIL...PASS
-------------------
111..|...3.....1
222..|..........1
333..|...2

I want to get the FAIL count of SN in which PASS > 0 (First two rows)

BUT I can not figure out how I can filter based on the values of the pivot table itself (rather than the values of the original list). When I try to use 'Result' field as report filter, I can not get it as a Column label (and vice-versa). In this case I get:

I get:
****|PASS
------------
111 | ...1
222 | ...1

Desired:

.......|..FAIL..PASS
-------------------
111 |...3...1
222 |........1

Desired (alternative):

......|..FAIL
-------------
111 |...3
222 |...0
