filter a pivot table that contains these 3 column fields: User 1, User 2, and User 3.
However, when I want to see the results for "John" in all those fields, I need to use one filter at a time. Is there any other way to see all results of the Pivot Table where "John" is a User, no matter if he is the 1, 2 or 3 user?
I have A3 and A4 as report filters in the pivot table. Is there any way can combine A3 and A4 into one cell. The new cell is something like drop-down list contains contents from A3 and A4. When picking up the from this drop-down, the corresponding data list will be shown (like the data in B3 and B4).
I am trying to arrange data (pay by week) for regions and sites within a region. In the first Report filter, I select the site, and the second report filter gives me all of the sites - not just those in that region.... How I can either arrange my data or change my pivot, so only the appropriate sites show under the region?
I have a pair of Pivot Tables with matching Pie Charts that look at Project Costs and Schedules. When I filter one, I'd like the other to filter automatically.
I found these links and used the code that Jerry supplied but I am running into trouble.
pivot table question
Pivot Table- "Master" Report Filter My filters (PivotField names) include Contractor RCEs District Year Month
When I select a contractor from PivotTable1 it does not change PivotTable2.
There is additional code in this workbook that Jerry recently wrote concerning drilldown formatting. It was initially created for a different report but now I use it in many of my other reports. I don't think it's causing the problem, I placed the new code above it (including in the module) and there is a line breaking it up from the new code.
As a side note, I may or may not need to change every filter. In this case I only want to change the contractor, but other times I may want to change other items.
Is there a way to loop through pivot table filters in VBA? In my case, I need to loop through the filter "Month" which contains January - December. For each of the month, I have to select and double click the total cases in each month.
So for every loop, for example,
Pivot 1 January Count
Case 1 2
Case 2 1
I need to open the drill down in B3 (this drill down will be opened in a new sheet, Sheet 1), copy the data and paste it in another sheet named "January Cases". Then the code will delete "Sheet 1" and proceed with the same with February till December. Is it possible to loop through pivot table filters?
PIVOT TABLES -- Old data remains in pivot table filters
One more Pivot Table Question:
I have workbooks i have built and re-use with fresh data after verifying that the previous data has been cleared. Unfortunately there are times in the drop down filter, old data will remain, but is not at all in the data set. How to clear this out? I have ensured that before pasting in new data the old data has been cleared below the headers. I keep my headers so I don't need to re-do the Pivot Tables or adjust the Name / SUM capabilities in the VALUE FIELD SETTINGS.
I have created a pivot table and I'm using report filters for both Client and Asset (obviously there are a lot more data points). When I filter on Client 1 I would expect to only see Port 1 - Port 7 available in the Asset filter however, I see every asset in the data set. I need to pick and choose using the Select Multiple Items check box without having to scroll through every single asset. Is there a way to easily do this?
I had 2 pivot tables running on the same page (sheet 2). They both draw data from the same source (Sheet 1).
The only difference between the two is that pivottable1 has a filter for "home team", and pivottable2 has a filter for "awayteam".
I have managed to link the tables using VB so if i select "Man United" on pivottable1 - as the home team, pivottable2 also selects "Man United".
Now my problem is, that i don;t want to select the teams from the drop down check box list on the actual pivot table. I want to be able to do this by typing into a cell (say Cell A1 on sheet 3 for instance) and this controlling BOTH pivot tables.
I did have some lengthy code which worked for one pivot table, but it did not operate both and it over rode my code i had in place which works for manual filtering.
If I entered values 700UY0S1MGL1 & 700UY0S1MGL2 in cells A1 and A2 of Sheet2 in the same workbook, how can I get this code to read that? If I extend the list to include additional items, how can I get the code to read it?
My next question is, in Excel I could enter a partial search (like 700UY0S1MG) in the filter drop down and I could filter on everything with this string. Using the macro it seems as though the full 12 char string needs to be qualified. How would I write a macro to handle this?
I have 3 pivot tables and with 3 filters each (they are all the same filters). I just want to change 1 of the filters for each of the pivot table (meaning the other 2 stay the same for all of the pivots). Is it possible to have a filter change automatically to match a filter in another pivot?
I'm Using Excel 2007 and would like to have some VBA to work with the following!
I have a simple pivot table (PivotTable1) in Sheet1 with three items in the Report Filter which has been named "ROUTE" I have created a ComboBox in Sheet2 and have added the identical three items in via format control, cell link A1.
I would like to be able to use the combobox in sheet2 to operate the PivotTable Report Filter in Sheet1 as I would like to build a report whereas a user. Can only select the comboBox and does not see the pivotTable
Sounds simple but cannot get this to work no matter what I try.
Is there a way to have separate Report Filters for each column in a pivot table?
I am trying to create a pivot table with 3 columns - 1: account code 2.current year (2011) 3. prior year (2010)
My Row Label is an account code field - each row is a different account code that sums up dollar amounts for the two financial years. The problem is that I need Columns 2 and 3 to have separate Report Filter criteria. So in Column 2 - I need the filter to weed out anything that is not 'Financial Year 2011'. In Column 3, I need the filter to weed out anything that is not 'Financial Year 2010'. Setting up a filter for one screws up the second, and vice versa.
Alternatively, how can I make two side-side-pivot tables that each have their own Report Filters?
I have a question, I have a pivottable with data (only numbers as values). In this pivot there is a report filter which filters current month and last month. Is it possible for the pivot to show the data as a difference between current month and this month and if so where to start with the vba code to let it substract from each other?
I have a pivot table where i would like to filter the values according to top 10, bottom 10 etc. I know that it works with using the filters in the pivot tables (Value Filters - Top 10 ...), but for making it easier and faster to use these filters, I would like to have some preset filter options as buttons or a drop down menu that immediately display them.
So that you don't need to choose the filter values yourself. I need to be able to either filter the e.g. Top2 Business Areas or within one Business Area filter the top 3 Business Groups. I thought about maybe making a drop down menu where you can choose the business areas and then another drop down where you can choose the Filter such as Top10, Bottom 10, Top 3 etc.
To minimize the amount of time I spend building reports each day I consistently reuse existing pivot tables for my daily reporting by deleting the data a pivot table is based on and inserting new data. When I refresh the pivot table the new information is shown.
However, I have noticed that the drop down filters in all my pivot tables are showing selections that existed in previous data but are not in the current set of data.
Is there a way to update the pivot so that the drop down filters only show selections that are pertinent to the current set of data?
- 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'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"
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 a problem with the attached spreadsheet. I have certain letters (A,B,C etc.) that are shipped to various regions. I would like to have a count on top to count the total number of orders, but one that also counts the total number of unique orders. However, this unique count has to be dynamic and must be able to adjust accordingly to the filters (by default, if no other filters are applied, should be 15). For example, if I apply the "Ship To" filter to Canada, the total number should be 19, but the unique count should be 12. If I change the "Ship To" filter to US, the total number should be 9, and the unique count should be 7. I've tried to use the advanced filters but if I apply the unique entries filter, it is only a one time calculation. Also, the advanced filter gets rid of my other filters.
I've got an old Excel sheet with Stephen Bullen's function for returning the active filter criteria (Rob on Programming: Excel: Displaying Autofilter Criteria). My status sheet may be filtered in multiple ways, and when the user is happy with the filter selections, she can create a powerpoint file with a graph and a summary of the filtered table. As we are using Excel 2010, users are very likely to select more than two filters.
Example: Range A1:E100 has the following headers: Field, Installation, Project,Type, Phase.
The controller wants to filter on: Field equals north or south or west Phase equals completed The manager for Field South wants to filter on: Field equals southType equals maintenance or repair or modification Installation begins with Zeus.
As the filters are not shown when I copy the table to powerpoint, I would like to create a summary of the user's active filters that is pasted into a sheet (for subsequent copying to powerpoint). For the users in the example above, that table would look something like this:
Controller: Active filters Field: north, south, west Phase: completed Manager, Field South: Active filters Field: south Type: maintenance, repair, modification Installation: Zeus*
I've looked at various functions intended to take Stephen Bullen's code into Excel 2010's multiple criteria world (e.g. this: User Defined Function to Display AutoFilter Criteria for More Than Two Criteria in Excel 2007 / Excel 2010), but I have not been able to convert it to a functioning macro.
Any code that could be used for this sort of task, or any tips for relevant code?
