I've referenced a few threads this one in particular [Solved] Pivot Tables : Refresh on protected sheet
I've tried the example given in the link and it still does not work. I want to protect the sheets that contain pivot tables, but still be able to refresh them. When I try I get an error. I've tried this a few ways.
My first attempt was to protect the sheets using allowuserinterfaceonly at a workbook open event. This caused warnings as soon as the workbook was opened. Then I tried Dave's suggestion and I get a runtime error 1004: Cannot edit PivotTable on protected sheet.
I've got a workbook with a several pivot tables. For convenience, I've deleted the pivot table source and left the pivots "self-standing". Problem is now when I try to refresh the workbook, I get a "Reference is not valid" error which prevents the workbook from updating.
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.
I have a workbook containing many pivot tables. When I create a pivot table everything works fine. When I close the workbook, reopen it, and refresh the pivot table, the new data will appear at the bottom of the table instead of being inserted in the proper row in the table. Since the table is no longer in sequential order my VLOOKUP functions don't work properly. What do I need to do to get the already established pivot table to refresh properly?
I have some code that runs and loops through each pivot table to refresh it; however, I remmed out the code so that it only loops once - telling it to refresh the first pivot; the thing I'm confused about is that after the code runs, it appears to have refreshed all my pivots. I think it's also important to note the each pivot table is linked to the same data source. (an external ds)
Maybe when this is the case, refresh will always refresh all?
I have the following code to update a pivot table:
Code: Dim pt As PivotTable Application.EnableCancelKey = xlDisabled For Each pt In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet1").PivotTables pt.ChangePivotCache ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create _ (SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:="source!R4C1:R33443C55" _ , Version:=xlPivotTableVersion10)
the R33443 term is what will be changing, the columns and the starting row should stay the same. is there a way to instead of using R33443, to enable the range to be changed based on a cell value?
I seem to have a small problem with a Pivot Table on a file that we get weekly. I've built a macro to run across the file to format it and refresh. The problem is, sometimes it fails because the Pivot Table is listed as "PivotTable1" and sometimes it comes through as "PivotTable2".
I'd like to amend it so that regardless of it's name, it can be renamed to "MainPivot" or something similar.
I'm creating a pivot table based on a section of data that will continually be of variable size. I'm trying to think of a way to command VBA to create a pivot table without giving an absolute reference to the table's source data. I can automatically select all of the data regardless of size, so I'm trying to see if I can command Excel to create a pivot table based on "Selection" instead of an absolute reference, in much the same way I might use Selection.Name instead of specifically defining a name's parameters. This is the text I currently have in VBA for the pivot table.
I am running into an error when creating a macro to make a pivot table and sum certain columns. I am fairly certain this is due to the name changing to PivotTable2, 3, 4, etc. each time. Is there a way to make the name stagnent so when a table is created in the macro it doesn't error out the formulas? I have an example below.
Using Pivot Table, I added a field to the "Values" field in order to give me a sum of the numbers. The title automatically changes to "Total", I am needing it to show "Total Invoice to OOM Delta". Is there a way to do this? I tried the Active Field option, but that's not working for some reason.
I'm looking for a way to refresh my pivotchart and update my pivot table data every time that a certain macro runs. I could just delete it and make a new one everytime but that runs in to the problem of defining a new sheet every time. Is there a simple way to do this. say I my pivot chart is on "Sheet 7" and it there is only one pivot chart in the workbook and my source sheet is on "Combined Data". and at the moment the data range is "A1:N435" and say next time I run my macro the data range will add 20 rows of data and the next 25.
I often use the same file/pivot table for both month and weekly reporting. In my source data my field headers show 1,2,3,4..etc. This way I can use for month or weekly. But I often change the "Custom" name on the Field Value Settings to something more descriptive like "Jan" or "Week1"
The problem is that each time I update the the "Custom" name the Pivot Table auto refreshes and it takes forever to re-label all the columns.
Is there a way to suppress this refresh when updating the Custom Field Name?
I have a set of four pivot tables on a sheet that I need to programmatically change a Report Filter (Page Field) so I can create sets of reports in an automated fashion. This will be the first step in that process. The change will involve choosing > 1 Role each time the code loops through based on Named Ranges I've defined that are associated with that Role.
My code thus far:
Code: Sub TestCode() Dim pt As PivotTable Dim pf As PivotField Dim pi As PivotItem
emm_dc_gsr is one of many Named Ranges that will contain a variable number of elements. Just using the one right now to see if I can get the code to work, I'll eventually make another Named Range/Array of all them so I can loop through each Report ("ReportPick").
I want the Report Filter to consult that Named Range for its values and apply those values to PivotField "Role" that is used as a Report Filter.
When running this code above, I get a "Role" Field that says "All" but no values (the table is completely blank), with no evidence as to why it'd be blank (all filters in every Report, Column and Row are working normally and are filled in). When I choose a value manually after the code is run, the pivot table values populate. Do I need to somehow index the Named Range in that loop? I'm just confused about this step right here:
For Each pi In pf.PivotItems If pi.Value = RolePick Then pi.Visible = True Else: pi.Value = False
When I've run other versions of the code, I've gotten an array version of it to "work" using LBound and UBound, but it never chooses the right two values even though those are verified as stored in the array via a pass-through. It chooses the first few values in the Report Filter.
Here's the corresponding code for that:
For i = LBound(myArray) To UBound(myArray) pf.PivotItems(i).Name = myArray(i, 1).Value pf.PivotItems(i).Visible = True Next
I do not care if I use an array or a Named Range. I just want something that is simple and works. Passing the values directly from the named range seems easiest to my brain, but I'm open to anything and I'm clearly missing something (probably silly).
I also have no idea why " .AutoSort xlManual, .SourceName, .EnableMultiplePageItems" is necessary though every piece of sample code I've seen seems to have some variation of it.
- 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 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 VBA code, what's the simplest way to verify whether a cell is a member of a pivot table or not? I have a complicated way of doing this by checking if creating a formula in another cell with a reference to the cell in question generates the GETPIVOTDATA function; however, it seems like there should be a much simpler way.
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?
From what I understand there's no way to do this without using macros. I would perfer not to use macros, but I need my PivotTables to auto-refresh anyways and apparently that will require a macro, so oh well. I'm very new to macro coding so I can't seem to successful apply any of the previous threads about this to my sheet.
I just need my pivot table on sheet "Customer" to filter the customer field based on the value in cell C1. Also I need to make sure the sheet doesn't "freak out" if the value in C1 is either blank, or is a customer value which doesn't exist in the table. Preferably in this scenario it would display nothing on the pivot table, but I don't know if that's possible. I want the sheet/macro to allow an invalid filter value in C1 just so the sheet doesn't lock up until it is corrected.
I also need my workbook to auto-refresh all the pivot tables is that's easy to code in as well.
