Pivot Table Query: Make A Pivot Table To Summarise The Data
Jan 22, 2007
attached is a spreadsheet 6 people in my area use daily(ive copied and pasted the sheet in question to a new worksheet, as the file was too big). Ive been trying for about 3 days now to make a pivot table to summarise this data.
I have an SQL Server that has a query (a view stored on the server) which takes roughly 10-20 seconds to execute. This execution time is the same in Excel 2007 if I import data to worksheet/pivottable. It is also the same in Excel 2003 while importing data into a worksheet. It returns about 350 rows.
However, if I try to make a pivot table in 2003 based on this query, it is much slower. I can set it up fine, but refreshing this pivot table takes at least 10-20x as long to complete, in the order of 5-20 minutes, to sometimes taking so long that I give up and kill it by hitting escape a bunch.
It's important to note that I am forced to used Microsoft Query to set up a pivot table in Excel 2003. There is no other way, I believe.
While it is running, Excel just sits there saying "Waiting for data to be returned from Microsoft Query".
Here is the weirdest part. Once the refresh starts, Microsoft Query loads in the background, you can see it on the taskbar. I believe that is expected behavior, but if I click on MS Query and view its datatable, I can see all the data is sitting there.
So what is the hold up? MS Query has the data. Excel is waiting for it to be returned. What is going on? And remember from above, if I do a simple import data to worksheet, MS Query is not used and everything is fast.
So my question is does anybody have any tips/advice on this issue? I need a way to not use MS Query for a pivottable's data source or I need a way to make MS Query not freeze up. I don't get why MS Query needs to be involved in the first place since I am not doing any parameters or so forth.
- 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.
I have a very large excel data file, which I want to analyse using pivot tables. The problem is that while most of the columns are headed with the variable name (e.g. country) and have the list of variables displayed under that heading for each observation (e.g. Italy), the years are spread across the columns - i.e. the heading for column X is not "Year", but is 2003, with the next column being 2004, etc.
Is there a quick way I can re-arrange the data so that the layout is consistent and so that I can use it for pivot tables? I have way too many observations to do this by hand.
the attachment is a sample spreadsheet of what i am trying to do. I would like to create a pivot table so that for each site I can list all of the organic suites individually. Then show a count of only 1 for each site, even when there are several counts for each site. And then for this to be related to a cost of each of the suites so that I can get a total cost for each site.
organic suites suite cost o1 x o2 y o3 z Total A etc
I've used this code prior and it worked fine in Excel 2007, now I'm having issues with it. Originally every Pivottable & Query pointed to a different CSV file. Now I have two pivottables built off a Excel worksheet that is built from a Query. This allows me to do some complex lookups that I couldn't do with just the Pivottable and MS Query alone.
Here's the code that's failing out: Any problems with it in Excel 2007?
Private Sub Update_All_Data_Click() Dim pvt As PivotTable Dim ws As Worksheet Dim qt As QueryTable
mytitle = "This will refresh all data for validation, are you sure?" Msg = "The Refresh process takes about 5 minutes, are you sure you want to continue?" Response = MsgBox(Msg, vbExclamation + vbYesNo, mytitle) Select Case Response Case Is = vbYes ' Do Nothing, continue with program Case Is = vbNo Worksheets("instructions").Range("a1").Select End End Select
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets For Each qt In ws.QueryTables qt.BackgroundQuery = True qt.Refresh Next qt Next ws
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets For Each pvt In ws.PivotTables pvt.RefreshTable Next pvt Next ws
mytitle = "Confirmation of data refresh" Msg = "The data has been refreshed" Response = MsgBox(Msg, vbExclamation, mytitle)
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.
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"
I created a union query in Access to join two tables (Projections and Actual Sales). The query produces the results I want. I need to create a pivot table in Excel using the union query as the source. When I pull up the data import function in Excel, the union query does not appear. Do I need to do something else? I have tried to create a select query where I select all from the union query and I can find that fine.
When I use this query to create the pivot table the results end up all zeros when I try to sum the values. It creates some crazy results when I show it as count of also.
I can provide the data in either the Access database or Excel spreadsheet.
I have created a pivot table in Excel 2010 that lists amounts used of particular items each month. Inside the pivot table value field settings i have changed the show values as field so that it displays the difference in usage from this month to last.
However if i now select a top 10 filter it only filters by the total number used as opposed to the difference in usage from one month to the next (which is the values displayed).
Is there a way that i can filter by top 10 by the actual values displayed in the pivot chart and not just the underlying data that creates it?
I have data that develops 3 to 4 pivot table each day. I would like to know if there is a way to change the date on one of the pivot table and have the other pivot tables date change to match with the first pivot table. At this time I am going to all 3 or 4 pivot table to select the correct date. The date is in the page position of the pivot table. I have attached a small sample of the data and the pivot tables.
In the attached file (xlsx) under 'Database' Tab poeple have indicated their preferences (multiple choices) for different food items "specialties". The specialties are grouped under broader buckets called "groups". The specialties are bucketed into groups in a way that people end up more than once in each specialties and groups due to their muliple selections. When we create a pivot by specialties (Pivot Specialties tab), each person appears only once for each specialty...it's great. But, when we create a "group" pivot (each group has multiple specialties), now, people appear more than once for each group. Is there a way, each person can show up only once under each group so the group count does not appear to be misleading?
This is how my pivot table would look like to start. Over time I would refresh and more things will be added. I want to make a Pie chart, and everytime I refresh the Pivot I want the Pie to get updated.
BUT I want to do this on a separate tab. So basically I want to do a Vlookup of sorts. Where all the Fruit items are pulled and automatically updated when I refresh the Pivot. Then I would do the same for Veggies.
Our system can create an SLK file showing customer open orders. It is ALWAYS in the exact same format. I created a macro to open this file, manipulate the data (convert text to numbers, convert text date to actual date, and a few other things) and then make a pivot table.
When I try to run it it gets hung up on the pivot table and the debug highlights the BOLD below:
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...
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 ?
I am tasked with putting together an Excel Spreadsheet to analyze our accounts. There are over 80 items for the accounts - about 20 Income and about 60 expenses. These are for various years - actually the last 5 years - by months.
So, I am trying to figure out how the best setup could be done to make this easier for pivot table analysis.
So I have 12 "rows" for each account item for each year.
Maybe I should wait for comments and/or questions before going further.
Just need to figure out how to set up the workbook/worksheet.
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?
The table has 13 columns and thousands of rows. The first column is the month field (ie, 200904) with all the following fields being procedure fields represented by codes (ie, aaaab, aaaac etc.).
Each row is a patient, the table therefore gives the month a series of procedures were carried out with all the procedures having specific codes.
The procedure fields can be populated in any number of ways and is essentially quite random.
What I want to do is count the number of a specific procedure that occurs in a month in a second table. The second table would have the complete list of procedures down the left with date running across the top. The cross section in this second table would therefore contain the count for that procedure in that given month...
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.
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.
I have a pivot table that I created and now I want to use the same pivot cache to create another pivot table instance on a different worksheet. how can I do that? My first worksheet gets saved as "OO By buyer" and now I want to create a new worksheet and drop the next pivot there.
I'm not grasping the Pivot Table correctly. I've written code to create a sum of values based on a worksheet. Specifically:LocationIDDeptSum of Hours Worked. Location, ID and Dept are rows. This effectively provides the aggregate values that I need based on the row groupings.Here's where this is falling apart. I need to create a new worksheet based on these values. I assumed the three row values - Location, ID and dept - would be in a hierarchy. It's possible they are, I just can't figure out the object model.
When I loop through the PivotItems collection of the PivotFields("Location"), I get what I need. However, I'm unable to determine how to loop through the child values (just for that location). PivotFields("ID") returns all IDs. I can't figure out how to return only the child entries for each pivot item. GetPivotData hasn't been very useful for this. As far as I can tell, GetPivotData, while its return type is listed as Range, throws an error when more than one cell is returned. Worst case, I suppose I can just parse the data in the DataBodyRange of the pivot table - maybe not, I haven't tried that. I'm hoping there's a way to iterate through these collections, but based on what I've seen from Google searches, there may not be. Does my pivot table need to be rearranged? I suppose I could also just dump this data into a data table
My macro is designed to look at a summary source tab and create a new tab for each unique project number. It then creates a pivot table from five different source detail tabs and filters on the project number. If a tab already exists it selects the tab and moves on to the next project number. There are six pivot tables created for every project.
New data is added each month to the source tabs and I have a macro to delete all pivot tables and the macro will recreate the pivot tables when ran again.
Issue: Running out of resources At work I'm limited to the use of Excel 2010 (32bit) so I'm restricted on 2GB of memory. At home I ran the file successfully (64bit) and it was around 3GB of memory.
My macro creates a new pivot cache for every pivot table where as I'm trying to only use 6 pivot caches in my coding. I kill it half way through and it's around 100+ caches causing unnecessary usage of memory.
Fix / Solution:
Correctly code the vba to only create six caches and code the rest the pivot tables to use that cache.The only difference in the Pivot Tables is that itâ€™s sorted on the Project Number.
Dim VBAPPPC As PivotCache Dim VBAAPPC As PivotCache Dim VBAPRPC As PivotCache Dim VBAEXPC As PivotCache Dim VBAMJPC As PivotCache Dim VBAIVPC As PivotCache Dim VBAPT As PivotTable
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.
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
