Maximum Value In A Column In A Pivot Table

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).

Return Column Number Of Maximum Value From A Table
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.

More Than One Column In Pivot Table
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.

Pivot Table Column Alignment
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.

Description Column In Pivot Table
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.

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.

Pivot Table Exceeds Row/Column Limit
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.

Months To Be Sorted In Ascending Order In Pivot Table, Want To Use Multiple Colors In Pivot Charts
My input data for Pivot table has a column named "Month". The month values are like April 07, April 08, Nov07 in random order for period between Jan 07 to Aug 08.

When I create a pivot Table, this column is sorted alphabetically (April 07 is followed by April 08) but I need it to be sorted in the ascending order with respect to month (April 07 is followed by May 07).

I further use this data to plot a Pivot Chart. There is another issue here. I want to use separate colors for each series. I do not know how to achieve above 2 things.

Refresh Pivot Tables Linked To Pivot Table
I currently have several pivot table that's linked to a single pivot table(let's call it X) in the same workbook. I'm doing this to limit the file size because the data in X comes from a text file that has millions of lines. However, it's such a pain every time I need to update the tables because simply clicking "refresh" does not update those tables that are linked to X with new data. I would have to instruct the wizard in every linked table to point to X every time. I'm trying to write a small program to re-point to X for each of those other pivot tables whenever i refresh data. However, after trying to record the steps to do this I'm still unable to run these

How To Mimic A Pivot Table Without A Pivot Table
I have a list of items and their associated quantities, many items appearing multiple times. I need a concise list that summarizes each item and sums all of its quantities.

Import Data From Access Table To Pivot Table - Enable Auto Refresh
I have enable Refresh on Open for my excel pivot table, but user need to click "Enable Automatic Refresh" , only solution i came across is to change the registry setting. Which i dont have access to edit registry(admin disable the access).

Alternate solution i try to use Access macro to automate the process and use Outputto save it as a excel file A. Then use excel file B to update pivot table from excel file A.(as excel A data is always latest)
The problem is i will get "....A file name already exist...do you want to overwrite.." prompt.
Which defeat the automate process.

Any other solution to enable the automatic refresh on open the excel workbook?

Or Access can overwrite the exist file or save it as another file name with timestamp ?

Pivot Table: Table That Shows As A Header The URL
I want for my set of data. The attached .xls is pretty straight forward: the first column is a list of people (identified by their customer number) and the second column is the URL they visited.

Since many people went to multiple pages, there are dupes between the two columns, but all of the rows are unique. What i am looking for is a table that shows as a header the URL (just one) and then the list of people that went to that URL under the header. So it's really just one column of information. It seems like a perfect task for a pivot table.

I need a formula for Excel

I want column J2 to L2 to display the highest amount on colum M2 and add 2 to it.

Pivot Table With Dynamic, Updatable Chart, But Not A Pivot Chart!
My boss wants me to design a dynamic, updatable chart in Excel 2003. I initially made a Pivot Chart based on a Pivot Table which worked perfectly, but it doesn't look professional enough when printed (or viewed) and she wants me to approach it a different way.

So, I created a graph based on the data in a Pivot Table, and used dynamic ranges as the source for the graph series so that the chart updates when the criteria fields are changed for the Pivot Table. I then added two combo boxes (ie data validation lists) to the Chart sheet, and wrote VBA code so that whenever the combo box values are changed, the Criteria fields for the Pivot Table on the 2nd sheet are updated accordingly, and this in turn causes the graph to be updated as well.

This solution also worked perfectly, but now I've been told to create the graph without macros.

Does anyone have any suggestions? The requirements/details are as follows:

1. The Pivot Table is on sheet "PIVOT", and the graph is on sheet "GRAPH"
2. The Pivot Table has two criteria - School Name and Year Level
3. On sheet "GRAPH" there are two data-validated fields, School and Year, which only allow the selection of valid Schools and Year Levels

Is there any way to make the Pivot Table update when values are changed in the fields on the CHART sheet so that the chart also updates, but without using code nor a Pivot Chart?

Give Maximum Value Of A Column
I would like to write a formula to have a result in a cell that gives me the maximum value of a column, but smaller than another cell.

For example:
C1 = Maximum value in column A1:A20, but smaller than B1.

Take Value To Left Of Maximum Value In A Column
Trying to grab the value to the left of the max value in a range of cells. Wasn't sure if I needed to use the offset function, I tried the vlookup function but the value i'm searching for is in the 2nd column, not the first. I can't download files at work, so if you could examine the example spreadsheet i uploaded, and then type the formula I should use in the post.

Cell Of Maximum Value In Another Column
I have a problem looking up the cell at which a maximum value in a curve is located. I have attached a workbook with an example of my problem (this is scaled down to limit the size of the attachment – my usual string of data is 5000 rows long). Column A is the time and all subsequent columns will contain force values (as shown in columns A and B) which create a similar sharp curve.

Ideally I need to be able to lookup the time point (column A) at which the maximum force value occurs for each curve or if this is not possible the row number in which the maximum force value occurs. I would like to be able to do this using a formula rather than a macro if that is possible?

I have tried using a number of excels lookup functions and read through the examples on the site but have had no success.

Finding The Minimum Value In A Column That Comes After The Maximum Value
Say I have 2 columns that in basic form look like this:

Column A Column B
Jan 1
Feb 0
Mar 7
Apr 4
May 15
Jun 2
Jul 5
Aug 4

First I want to look up the max value in this column. This is easy =max(b1:b8)
Then I want to know the minimum value that occurs after the maximum value. Thus the answer would be 2.

Return Heading Of Column With Maximum Value
In attached example, I have 3 columns of fractions with a final row of sumtotals (taken from elsewhere). I test to see which column has the maximum value in each row and allocate the result with the column's heading. Sometimes, two or more columns have the same max value. In this scenario, I wish to select the column heading that has the largest sumtotal.

Find The Maximum Value In One Column And Retreive The Name Of Cell In Corresponding Row
I spent couple of hours trying to figure this out, but without success. Please check the attached example. I need a formula that will find the max value (number of views in English anguage) in the column "I" and display the corresponding "Headline" value in the column "B". In the example it is "Headline 5".

I can not change position of the columns, i.e. "B" must remain "B" and "I" must remain "I".
I experimented with Index and vlookup but to no success. I have outlook 2003.

SUM MAXIMUM Or Index/Max: Count Number Based On The Maximum Time??

Pivot Table Pop Ups
I have some code that creates a pivot table the only problem is that two small windows keep poping up on the screen, I thought I could use the Application.DisplayAlerts = False at the begining of the script to disable those windows?

% In A Pivot Table
I am trying to add a column to a pivot table that shows the percentage of another column.

I have Sales and Returns listed for my company's products in the pivot table columns.

Lets say the numbers are: Sales are 10 and returns are 4. I show both columns and want to add a 3rd column that shows 40% (4/10).

Does anyone know how to do this in the pivot table? There are plenty of percentage options, but none to do this simple one.

The macro does the following:

- Sort products on Partno.
- Per partno, export the file to a new file with an auto name.

I now tried to add a function so in a new workbook it would create
a pivot table. which is easyer for our customers. But the debugger keeps
hammering on the line just beneath the line: With New WB

Sub SplitToNewWorkbooks_CD()
Sheets("file").Select
Dim NewWB As Workbook
Dim UR As Range, UniqueList As Range, f As Range
Dim myPath As String, Partno As String
sDate = Replace(FormatDateTime(Now(), vbShortDate), "/", ".")
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
myPath = ThisWorkbook.Path & ""
With Sheets("file")
Set UR = .UsedRange.................

Value 0 In A Pivot Table
This dataset I have has empty cells, but there is a formula in these cells.

When I make a PT from that dataset, the cells which are empty in the dataset do show up in the PT, as zero's.

Say in the first column of the table are employees, in the second column is a number that is of interest. I want the employees with a number of interest that has value of zero not to show up.

Is there a way to leave those rows out of the table?

Pivot Table Max Value
I have a number of values for a particular places,
-say, 'A' has 5 values named 1 2 3 4 5 each with a value and 'B' has 3 values names 6 7 8 each with a value and so on.............

-If I use a pivot table to give me the max valuesit will for return the largest value for A, B and so on.

However I also want to know for A, which one is the largest 1 2 3 4 or 5? and for B, 6 7 or 8? and so on.

Basically, is it possible for pivot table return the location of the Max value as well as the max value?

Conditional Maximum (find The Maximum 'value' For Each Individual 'type')
I have two columns of data. The first column is the 'type' and the second column is the 'value'. I need to find the maximum 'value' for each individual 'type'

The 'types' are not necessarily next to each other and the data cannot be sorted to do so.

Example:
type value
A 15
B 6
A 21
C 7
B 13

I need to be able to say the MAX for 'A' is 21, the MAX for 'B' is 13 and the MAX for 'C' is 7.

Find MAXIMUM, Show Date When MAXIMUM Occurred
Look in Column E and find the MAX value. Once you find the MAX value, (let's say E27) display the date that's in C27. I bet this is really easy but I've been screwing around with it for over a half hour and can't get the correct result.

Pivot Table - Subtotals
I have a seemingly very simple question but even though I've worked a lot with pivots I can't find the answer.

clientcode Amount countries
a1 1.000,00 kenia
a2 2.000,00 kenia
b3 1.000,00 kenia
b4 3.000,00 kenia

Lets say I have a list like this and I want to count the number of clients (3) or countries(2).

I can only get the total of rows per client but not the subtotal 3 for the number of clients.
a - 2
b 3
c - 4

Pivot Table - Percentages
I am trying despeartely to finish this out. Here is the deal. I created a pivot table (see attached). The issue is that I need the numbers in the red boxes to be a percentage of the total number below - so the 2 should be a percentage of the 9 (22%) and the 3 should be 100% and the 7 should be 78%. I cannot seem to get this to work. Also, there are multiple rescue groups that need this and each needs to be the % of its own total number of animals.

Pivot Table :: How To Get The % Data Above A Particular Value
I have a excel sheet with following 4 columns

Division Name:

Transformer capacity:

Transformer earth resistance:

Now how can I get answer of following queries in Pivot table. (Excel 2007)

1. % of a particular capacity of transformers in a division say % of 400 capacity transformers in all divisions.

2. % number of transformers having Transformer earth resistance value above a particular value in all divisions. Say % of Transformers having Transformer earth resistance above 2.6 in each division.

Pivot Table Uses Raw Data
I'm using Excel for bookkeeping and balancing a budget. I've created one sheet for all my raw data and the other is to summarize the data using a pivot table. On the raw data sheet I have labeled my columns for the pivot table. I was hoping that in the pivot table I can select a year and have all the months for that year and data of that year be available, but not other years. I was also trying to have only the month selected of a year selected and that data be available. I also wanted to show an accounting of money spent by item.

Instead, I have a pivot table that is confusing and very unattractive. The example of this will show my limited knowledge in pivot tables. I'm hoping some of you more affluent "guru" members may be able to help me get something usable and presentable.

I tried creating a dynamic named range for the pivot table "BookKeeping" and a dynamic named range for the money out and money in "Accounting", but I'm not sure if I did that right. I did this because more columns will be added over time. This is the reason I'm asking the above two paragraphs.

Should I be using filters some how?

The Summary Sheet also has the balance of available funds that I'm somehow looking to include in this pivot table. Can the pivot table keep a running balance?

Sorting In Pivot Table
I have created a pivot table that contains the following data:

Country Name
Date as in 5/1/08, 6/1/08, etc
With counts in the cells

I can sort on Country name and get an alphabethical list by country name showing teh numbers for each date

However I want to sort by the largest to smallest number that shows in the date column 01/01/08

Is there a way to sort on that colum-while moveing all the numbers in the other date columns along with it?
