Pivot Table Field Not In Data Source

Apr 24, 2006

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)

Pivot Table Retains Old Source Data In Addition To New Source Data

Sep 7, 2006

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.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Jon

Pivot Table Data Source

Apr 10, 2013

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?

Pivot Table - Dynamic Source Data

Sep 26, 2011

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?

Maintain Source Data Formatting In Pivot Table?

Nov 20, 2010

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.

Update The Pivot Table Data Source From Cell?

Aug 8, 2013

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?

Can't Refresh Pivot Table When Using External Data Source

Apr 30, 2014

I am using an Excel file (Raw.xlsx) to store my raw data, and take another Excel file (Pivot.xlsx) to make PivotTable from Raw.xlsx

When generating the PivotTable, every works fine. When click [Refresh] in the Raw.xlsx, whatever changes been made in the Raw.xlsx can "sync" to the Pivot.xlsx

However, once I save and reopen the Pivot.xlsx, I can't refresh the PivotTable anymore. I've tried changing Data Source, but it doesn't work.

Refreshing Actual Data Source Of Pivot Table

Dec 31, 2013

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.

Update The Source Data For The Pivot Table In Database

Jan 7, 2009

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:

Hidden Columns In Pivot Table Source Data

Jul 17, 2009

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.

Pivot Table - Edit What Parts Of Data Source Appear?

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?

Extracting Source Data From A 'text-only' Pivot Table

Nov 29, 2007

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.

Refine Pivot Table Source Data On Drill Down

Oct 26, 2007

Attached is a file which shows the problem. I bascially have two headings. The first heading contains the letter "b" 9 times but only has values against two "b"s. When this is entered in a pivot table and the value is drilled down (in this case 3, highlighted in yellow), I only want the numbers attached to the two "b"s to be shown rather than all the 9 b's (thereby omitted all the zeros).

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:

Use VBA To Change Pivot Table Data Field

Feb 13, 2008

Right, I have tried everything I can do (which is not so much) to achieve the following. Can someone please help?

I have a worksheet with about 300 rows of data. The columns are headed Name | Division | Department and then 8 different scores and a total score). I have created 7 different worksheets with pivot tables on them to display each division.

Now, here is what I would like to do. Each Pivot table should show the Name and 1! of the scores next to it. That is simple enough and works. But how do I create a macro that allows me to change which score to display based on the content of cell A1. I.e. If I write Effort in A1 I want the pivot table to show Name | Effort score. If I write Complexity I want the pivot table to change to Name | Complexity score.

Is There A Way To Add Text To The Data Field In A Pivot Table?

Nov 20, 2008

So i have a raw data dump that I need to put in a spacific reporting fashion. Excel pivot tables seems to almost do the trick. The problem is the information that I need to drop in the "data" field is text (peoples usernames) and when I drop it in I get numbers instead of names, and when I drill down on the number then I get the exact format I need but only for that line... Any ideas? I am using Excel 2000

If pivot tables will not work does anybody know of another was to get raw data in a mapping type of spreadsheet?

Data Field Of Pivot Table To Go Across Columns

Oct 17, 2007

When i tried to drop another field into data field, by default, the new data field will appear below the field which was already in there. However, i would like the new field showing in an new column - horizontally - rather than showing in a new row.

For example:
Rather than the Pivot table appear like this:

Q108A 72
____B84
____C68
____D5
Q109A 64
____ B 73
____C58
____D 5

I would like the privot table present like the following format:

____ A_ B_ C_ D_
Q108 72 84 68 5
Q109 64 73 58 5

Is there setting I can change, so that the new field is added to a new column.

Macro To Add Data Field To Pivot Table

Jun 27, 2008

I've got a bunch of pivot tables with nothing in their data fields and I want to add two things to the data fields of each, but I keep getting this error as soon as I start my loop:

Run-time error 1004: Unable to get the PivotFields property of the PivotTable class

Here's the code that is highlighted when the error comes up:

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Master_" & Count).AddDataField _
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Master_" & Count).PivotFields( Sheets("raw data"). Cells(1 + Count, 2)), _
("Sum of " & Sheets("raw data").Cells(1 + Count, 2)), xlSum

I recorded doing the first one by hand and it looks like this:

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Master_1").AddDataField ActiveSheet.PivotTables( _
"Master_1").PivotFields("10/2 Spread"), "Sum of 10/2 Spread", xlSum

I don't understand why I'm getting the error because I added watches and my variables are all saying what I want them to say (Master_1, 10/2 Spread)...

Automatic Refresh Of Pivot Table On Changes In External Data Source?

Dec 4, 2013

I have a pivot table report connected to an external data source (OLAP cube).I want to automatically refresh the pivot table report everytime the OLAP cube data changes.

I know we can use Automatic refresh on open of workbook or time intervals after which to refresh .But i want the auto refresh to work even if the workbook is already open and there is no definite time interval after which the cube is likely to change.SO,by defining intervals for auto refresh i do not intend to waste time refreshing even if there is no change.

There are multiple pivot table reports and pivot charts connected to the same OLAP cube.
