Multiple Pivot Tables - Single Table Of Source Data
Mar 9, 2014
I am trying to generate several pivot tables from one data source table. I have successfully created my first pivot table (A date field, and a water storage facility level reading) and subsequently a graph from this. I have worked out that I need to group my dates as I am supplied a daily reading, but only need monthly average. All worked great.
Now i need to create more pivot tables and graphs. The next one I want is to create one grouped by years. But when I create this new pivot table and change the grouping of the date field to yearly, it also changes the grouping on my first pivot table, which is undoing my work.How to tell excel that these pivots are independent, and I don't want them changing in unison? See screen grab of my source data and where I am up to...

I have a single workbook with multiple worksheets. Each worksheet has a different pivot table displaying a different view of the data. Each pivot table uses the same source data at worksheet1.
Each week i add new data to the end of the source data, which means that I need change the source data reference separately in each pivot table to update each pivot table view to include the new data. This is laborious as there are quite a few pivot tables.
Was wondering if there is some way of changing the pivot table source data reference on all pivot tables at the same time.
I have multiple pivot tables with different data source. I wish to have one slicer which control all the pivot tables. I would have one common colum for all the pivot tables which is the one i wish to control for instance the person in charge. Note that all my pivot tables are from different data source. how to do it?
The spreadsheet is comprised of 4 sales data sheets, one for each store. Each of these sales data sheets runs several pivot tables (One for dept sales, one for waste, one for sales on Selected UPCs etc) and I used to have 1 copy of each pivot table for each store (ie 24 pivot tables). Now I have found a way to have only 1 copy of each PivotTable which changes based on which store is selected using the following code:
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.
I have a report that was created for 2005 that contains two worksheets: a "source data" worksheet and a " pivot table" worksheet. I cleared out the 2005 data in the "source data" worksheet and replaced it with 2006 data...after this I refreshed the Pivot Table and everything seemed fine. When looking at the file size I noticed that it was almost twice its original size....upon further investigation I found that the Pivot Table was internally holding onto the old source data (the "Show" functionality of the rows/columns in the table lists the 2005 row/column headers as well as the 2006 headers....even though no data from 2005 is shown in the Pivot Table).
Does anyone know how to purge the old data from the internal Pivot Table memory?
I hope this is enough information....let me know if you need more.
why is pivot table changing numbers to dates. It was fine all along, numbers retained the fromat of source data and now, all numbers in field columns are turning into dates. is there a setting I can change to prevent excel from reformatting numbers to dates?
I have a huge data set with survey data (sample attached: sample.xlsx). Column headings: survey questions Row headings: respondent identifiers (names) Row data: answers to questions (numeric values, only five answer options 1,2,3,4 or 5, no blanks)
I need to build that kind of pivot table:
Rows - list of particular questions (i.e. questions no. 3, 7 and 12) Columns - list of all diffrent answer entries (eventually, it will be 1,2,3,4 and 5) - it could also be questions in columns and answers in row (no difference) Values - count answer entries (i.e. how many answers "5" are on quesiton 3)
------ UPDATE: explanation added.
The reason I need pivot tables: i'll have to cross analyze multiple sets of questions. I'll have to do such cross-analysis 100+ times, so, writing a formula for each time does not quite work...
I was wondering if there is any way possible to link your pivot table filters to filter the data the same way in the table that it comes from? So if i had date as one of my headers and i filtered the date to a specfifc date, is there a way to also filter the date in the data source sheet?
I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the souce data for a Pivot Table? Eg if I have the Pivot table looking at Columns A & B lines 1 - 20 and I want the Pivot to also include Column C and lines 21 - 50, how would I do this? for a chart I can just right click and select the "Source Data" option but it seems that this is not available for Pivot Tables.
A co-worker of mine set up a pivot table using data saved on an external data source on a shared drive. I would like to create a similar pivot table myself, linked to his pivot table so when he gets updated data, my pivot table also will update accordingly. My question has to do with the pivot table data source. How do I copy the connection?
I have a pivot table created. How do I determine which sheet it is pulling the data from, hence the source of the pivot table? Also, if can you go into source and modify data points, then in pivot table, will the results would be automatically modified with updated data points?
I've got a bit of a problem revealing pivot table source data, so just wondering if anyone know how to reveal it? My colleague sent me the spreadsheet, I can see the pivot table, but I can't find the source data that the pivot table links to.
I am using pivot tables/charts for drilldown reporting. After running a complex macro to consolidate multiple reports into one range, I need to generate pivot tables and charts.
These reports will change month to month in the number of entries they have (template will be identical), and therefore my data source range for the pivot table is bound to change. Therefore my question is, how to develop a macro that will dynamically change the source data range to the amount of rows?
why the data reference for a pivot table is changing after I email the workbook to a client. The source data and the pivot tables are all part of the same workbook and I can't understand why its saying can't find source data. Excel 2007 is being used on both computers.
I am using pivot tables which were created by another (no longer contactable) and have found two fields in the field list which are not part of the source data i.e. neither are column headings but are used in the pivot table.
My questions are:
1. How are these field created?
2. How can I examine these fields for formulae (as I have found one of them returns an incorrect value)?
Field1 return a numerical value which is the difference between two columns Field2 shows this as a % (but incorrectly)
My fixed asset software will not allow me to show multiple individual months of acquisitions. I can export each month. This will create a separate spreadsheet for each month, but the problem is that each spreadsheet may contain the same asset, but additions to that asset.
I have some source data which is used to generate a pivot table. The data is conditionally formatted to color certain cells based on some other values. Once the data is transferred to the pivot table this formatting (as well as the number formatting) is lost.
I have found some code to fix the number formatting issue but can't seem to locate something similar to set the interior color of the cells in the pivot table to match that of the original source data.
I have a pivot table whose data source is located on a shared network drive. Each day a new data source is uploaded and the only thing that changes is the date in the filename (ie. DataSource080813.xlsx). I am trying to find a way to set the data source to update with todays date automatically each day so that when you open the workbook it is always current days data. I have a cell (B2) with a formula in it that gives me the file location of todays file (ie. X:TeamFolderFile1DataSource080813.xlsx, where the date is derived using the TODAY() function. Is there a way to set the pivot table data source to cell B2 and have it use the text from B2 as the file location?
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.
I would like not to have to update the source data for the pivot table in my database. I've read that you can solve this by using a Dynamic Named Range and using that as the source for the pivot table. That way the pivot table will expand as new data is added to the database. The formula I used to create the DNR is:
I wish to hide some columns that contain data used to update a pivot table in another worksheet. What I want to know is though, will this affect the pivot table? I think that graphs in excel will normally ignore data in hidden cells, so I was wondering if it was the same with pivot tables.
if it's possible to break the connection between a pivot table and the data source whilst still maintaining the data in the table? I could try copy/paste special/paste values but thought there migth be a 'proper' way to preserve the data.
I noticed that when I click on a cell in my Pivot Table a new worksheet pops up with the requested information (essentially a filtered version of my data source depending on what cell I clicked) is there a way for that information to appear on the same worksheet as my Pivot Table? And if so can I also edit what parts of the data source appear?
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.
