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 don't know how I done it. But I have managed to totally goober up my pivot table settings at a global level.
Start with a data worksheet and do Data | PivotTable and Pivot Chart Report... and just click the Finish button and you get a skeleton with the grey "Drop Column Fields Here", "Drop Data Items Here", "...Row...", "...Page..." and blue highlights around each. I don't know when -- but it must be recently, perhaps even this morning... I did something that turned off this behavior. Now I don't see the grey messages. Now I don't see the blue outline. Normally, if that were the case, one simple clicks on the Show Field List buttons and voilá. But neither on existing pivots in workbooks that have always been well-behaved and new pivots too, I cannot get the Show Field List buttons to work! Neither the default feller on the PT toolbar, nor the same button on the popup menu that you get when right-click the PT. Even more amusing? The button(s) are not disabled. If I click somewhere off the PT, then yes, the buttons disable.
Click back on the PT and the button on the PT toolbar "enables". They just don't do anything.
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?
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 toplamÄ±" is sum of items, and "SÄ±ra no" is count of items. Ä° 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. Ä° wrote "="HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO"". But the summary is false. I want to divide Sum of "Hata toplamÄ±" and count of "SÄ±ra no" but instead it divides with sum of "sÄ±ra 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 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?
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.
I am trying to display text in the value field within a pivot table. I do not want a count or any number to display. What I am basically trying to create is a weekly schedule for nurses, with the dates on the top and times along the side, with "call type" and client as the text data to display with the value field.
I have attached an excel file with all the data on Sheet 1 and my attempt at a pivot table on Sheet 2. Perhaps there is some way to write a macro to display the data in a similar fashion, without using a pivot table?
VBA code to remove "sum of" from a pivot table. It works on a regular pivot table. However, when applying this code to a pivot table created utilizing PowerPivot, the code does not work. Here is the code:
Sub ChangePTName() Dim pt As PivotTable, pf As PivotField, ws As Worksheet, i As Long Application.ScreenUpdating = False Set ws = ActiveSheet For i = 1 To ws.PivotTables.Count Set pt = ws.PivotTables(i) pt.ManualUpdate = True For Each pf In pt.DataFields
I have and excel sheet that pulls data from an external source (ServiceNow) via MS Query.
From the exported data, I have the following:
Date opened (MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM) Date closed (MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM) calendar_stc (this exports in seconds, such as 136) (this equals date closed minus date opened for each record) assignment group
From this export, I'm trying to make a pivot table to show the average calendar_stc per assignment group, per month, per year; but in hours, not seconds.
I thought this was an easy process, create pivot to group row data by years then by months. Then add in assignment group to to the Rows as well. From there, I added to the values section of the pivot the calendar_stc. The default, of course, is to sum each row. But I need the average so I switched it to average. Now it is showing the correct average calendar_stc in seconds per group. To make it hours, I figured I could add in a calculated field. To do that I added the formula of =calendar_stc/60/60 for the calculated field. When I hit okay, it's giving me the SUM in hours for each row. Modifying the field settings to average does not change the numbers. So I went back into the formula and modified =average(calendar_stc/60/60). And that is not working either.
Here is an example to show the math with my formula.
I have a macro to create a report and it selects to place in the pivot table. The problem is that sometimes in my basic data for creating the pivot table, not all the same fields are there. Here is what it looks like for this section now.
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Category Id") .PivotItems("ARMS/AMMO/EXPLOSIVES").Visible = False .PivotItems("COMPUTER").Visible = False .PivotItems("COUNTERFEIT GOODS").Visible = False .PivotItems("DRUGS").Visible = False .PivotItems("GENERAL MDS/OTHER").Visible = False .PivotItems("PROHIBITED ITEMS").Visible = False End With
In the instance for today, the field "Drugs" is not in my main data. So I get an error box and it stops because the category is not there. How can I get this to continue if one of the fields is not found?
I've got a macro that adds new data to a sheet and updates an existing pivot table.
It's been working fine but ever since I've had to have two items in a field hidden it won't show any new data in the pivot table.
For example, the field firm name has two items hidden after the update any new firm names that weren't in the report before won't show up in the pivot table. The pivot table recognizes that it's part of the full data set but the checkboxes are all unchecked for the new firm names.
this is the code i"m using to update the pivot table:
I am trying to create a dynamic pivote table that can be update using a value in a cell. I can get everything updating and working correctly except I am unable to remove the one calculated feild from my pivot table. I am able to remove all other fields without problem. Code below: (lines 13 and 14 is the code that i cant get to work)
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim dt As String Dim dt2 As String On Error Resume Next dt = Sheets("Executive Summery").Range("M1") dt2 = dt & "2"
