I'm trying to copy the value of one column to another, column A has date and time in this format: 6/1/2013 6:35:00 AM and I'm trying to get ONLY the dates to another column so that when I do my pivot, I can sort it out by date. I tried =A1 and I can format the column to how I want it but the value of the cell still remains in date&time. Is there any formula I can use? or should I change anything in my pivot table?
I am stuck trying to sort data that looks like the following, into a format that I can use as source data for pivot tables/charts.

I will need to group Data multiple ways. However, I cant work out a good way to sort it. Can I have a suggestion on layout that I will be able to arrange data appropriately.
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.
I have a table (attached example with only a SMALL part of all data) I would like to transform this into pivottable format without copying and pasting. In row 2, all of the numbers pertain to years. Column B has the number of years in force for each property account (Column A). I
How can you visually format a column with multiple values in a pivot table? Say you have month in the column section, and three values in the value section: budget, actuals, variance; I want to visually seperate each month's set of data.
I have a sheet that comes from a pivot table that I have to format each month. It's a pain I was hoping a macro might be able to do. I was told this is the place to come for this. I have attached the the sheet unformatted and formatted. Note, there are 2 more columns on the finished sheet I add in to show totals. Also note col A has to be re-ordered each time (Safety, Environmental, Security, Vehicles, Operations).
Not sure about the complexity of this. Let me know. And let me know if I need to supply more info.
When you create a pivot table and double-click on the output of the pivot repot you access the detailed info that make up this particular number.
Is it possible to preserve the format of the raw data file that has been used to create the pivot table output?
For instance, the raw data has $. When I create the pivot table I can format the table to reflect the $. However, when I double click on the pivot table number where I have the $ I access the detail info but the format (in this case $) is lost.
I called Microsoft and told me it is a flaw in Excel. But, I'd like to check with you before I give up.
If I can't do that. I have an alternative: double click on all the numbers of the pivot table then format the sheets to include the $ and then create a hyperlink from the pivot table to the detailed report tab.
I am building a tracking process for marketing and relationship management purposes. My company has a database (Advisor's Assistant - which the server is on site) that is for lack of a better term very limited. I have tried to identify if we have the capability to use SQL in excel to pull the information we want but that avenue looks bleak, since my co-worker that is pretty tech-savvy has had very little luck working with the database provider to get to information we want.
Anyway, I have determined that I can get the information I am interested in by way of several reports that the current database will do and printing them to a .pdf file. Then by way of a program called Able to Extracted I can get them into an excel format. The problem I am trying to solve is using excel to pull the information I want out of these twice converted reports into a format that means something in excel.
Only the reports reach excel they have many empty cells and some of the information is offset and does not follow the same pattern as you scroll down through the report. I have attached part of one of the reports. I would like to automate the process of searching the data and creating a new format that I can use a pivot table to create reports off.
I have a pivot table and next to it I added some calculations which are based on data from the table. In my "real" file, the cells next to the PT are formatted with conditional formatting based on other values in the sheet (see attached sample file). What I now need to do is add borders to the cells in columns “D:G” only if the cells in “B5” and downwards are not empty. I have tried doing it with conditional formatting but there are some other rules which contradict this setting.
The idea is to make the cells in columns “D:G” look like they are a natural extension on the PT. However, the table can grow or shrink (in length) and I want to see borders only around cells that are on the same rows as the data in column “B” (staring with B5). I think that whatever solution you can provide (if you can...) should be based a workbook_change event, because in my “real” file, the length of the table is changed whenever I select a different “page” of the PT.
I am using pivot table for my customer aging which a sample is enclose. What I want to do is to Highlight the field " Customer Name " in colour if the the Field " Type of guarantee" is other than 0. Also a message of " Credit limit Exceeded" if the outstanding is more than the Credit limit.
I have created a pivot table in a workbook which relates to data from 2011 - 2012 and this works perfectly. What I now need to do is to copy the pivot table (without the data source) to a new workbook for data which will be collected from 2012 - 2013. Unfortunately when I copy it and try and find the new data source it does not update the filters according to the data in the new workbook.
I have an excel sheet with multiple pivot tables. I would like to customize the output based on a criteria when I double click on these pivot tables. Criteria could be different for each pivot table. Criteria for each pivot is to auto fit the contents, delete certain columns and format the contents.
I have a couple of columns, once edited need to update a table in SQL. This is my code
However it is not taking UK date formats, it is assuming it is an american format, I get conversion of varchar data type to datetime results in an out-of-range value. What should I add to change the format? The format is in UK on the spreadsheet seemingly....
I have a birthday list with name, client, birthday. I want to create a pivot table that groups by month. Report layout is tabular. Then within that month, name, client & birthday (in date order). So my end result would look like;
January Jim Jones Company 1/4 Then rest of January names 1/15
Right now, I can't get the birthday to sort by date within the month.
I am having the hardest time trying to get my pivot table to sort right. I downloaded data over a 7 year period and its sorted by months (January-2005 etc). The issue I am having is excel is putting it into this format
January-2005 January- 2006 ......... February - 2005 February-2005.
I need it to sort chronologically
jan 2005, Feb 2005, March 2005...... Jan 2006, Feb 2006 etc.
What do I have to do to get this fixed. I would rather do not have to do it manually each time I need this type of data.
I am recording events on a day to day basis in excel using the first column as the date, second column as start time, and third column as end time. So an entry might look like 1-Jan _ 13:00 _ 13:40, in the three columns across. There will be multiple entries for each date, but the number of entries for each date will vary. Entries may also overlap in times. For example, the next row may read 1-Jan _ 13:10 _ 13:45. Some times there will be gaps such as a third row readng 1-Jan _ 14:15 _ 15:00. What I would like to do is compute the total elapsed time spent on projects for each day, not counting any overlaps. SO even though the total time spent on those three projects for January 1st is 120 minutes, I would like to know how much time during the day is spent doing work, regardless of how many projects are being done at the same time. So I would like excel to be able to tell me that on January 1st , 90 minutes of the day was spent on work. Hopefully this makes sense. I also need it to distinguish between dates so that it can tell me how much time was spent on January 1st. then January 2nd, 3rd and so on. It would be great if this ould be computed as the data is entered. Maybe It could record it on a new sheet with a column for each date and then it lists the time spent on that day in the row below it.
I am challenged/very frustrated with my pivot table which will not group dates (returns an error message).
In reading other posted questions, I see that my problem is caused by empty date cells. Is there a way around this?
My spreadsheet will be used daily to input Invoice details - part of which is the date of invoice. If I were to select 'refresh data', this would not be pulling through any new data as it wouldn't be in the range. I had made my range A1:K1500 to incorporate future entries, but then I have empty date cells as to date there are only 200 entries.
Not sure if this is possible but I have a sheet of data which is effectively a project plan. It has a list of resources, role and phase etc. I then have lots of rows which are w/c dates and under each "week" I have the amount of hours or days they work. So for each person I can record their hours etc.
I then need a Pivot which basically collates the data and displays each phase's total hours but month. There maybe multiple phases or and each person may appear in each phase
I have inherited a spreadsheet that I need to update soon. It takes data that has a date field and creates a pivot table by month. The person who created it completed it thru February. Now I have added data for March and April, but the pivot tables can not find this new data and I suspect it is because of the date formatting (I have done the Change Data Source under PivotTable Options to include all the new data).
The reason I suspect the date format is that she built a button to run a macro named "dateformat", which is not in the workbook. I have tired to manually format the date using the format painter from the February dates that the pibvot table recognizes, but I still get no results.
I have attache a file to use as a reference, the real file is over 10 000 rows long. What I need is to be able to quickly make a summary of each company within a certain period (let's say monthly) and be able to calculate the sub total of the GST column. Every report that's created than needs to be saved and put into a seperate file e.g 'TFQ Sep 07'. I understand I need to use a Pivot Table but can some one just give me quick example of how I would do this?
- 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.
