# Subtract Negative Numbers Within Pivot Table Data Field

Jul 6, 2009

Ive attached a spreadsheet showing what im trying to achieve. basically i have a scheduling objective, in which only a few slots (AA, BB, CC) are available. so the starting availability is fixed. for this example assume the starting values are 6,7, and 8 respectively. as 'bookings' are entered, im using the value of -1 against A, B, or C respectively, to indicate that AA, BB, or CC should be decreased by 1 unit of availability.

im trying to incorporate the subtraction within a pivot table. as you can see i am way off. the hypothetical formula logic that im trying to implement within the PivotTable would look something like this:

for A,B or C, sum all (-1) values for each instance of Date and Stage... this will give total bookings

add this total value to the starting values of AA, BB, CC respectively to get the new availability

## Pivot Table Calculated Field To Subtract Sales Between Two Periods (not Grand Total)

'Pivot Table Calculated Fields" - Below is my pivot table.

I need the pivot table to subtract 'February' sales figures from 'January' sales figures to get the difference (variance).

I know the following steps:

1) Click on the Pivot Table

2) Choose "Formulas"

3) Choose "Calculated Field"

4) In the "Name" field - type in the name that I want "Two Month Variance" (for example)

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set ws = ActiveSheet
For i = 1 To ws.PivotTables.Count
Set pt = ws.PivotTables(i)
pt.ManualUpdate = True
For Each pf In pt.DataFields

## 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?

## 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)

## 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.

## Text In Data Field Of Pivot Table

Feb 15, 2008

I am struggling with data field in pivot table. Is it not possible to use strings in data field?

Here is a problem :-

Col1-----------Col2-----------Col3
----------------------------------
A 11/1/2007 Y
A 11/2/2007 Y
B 11/1/2007 Y
B 11/2/2007 N
C 11/1/2007 N
C 11/2/2007 Y
D 11/1/2007 N
D 11/2/2007 N

Required op :-

11/1/2007 11/2/2007
A Y Y
B Y N
C N Y
D N N

I used pivot table to generate this output but in a data field I don't get strings; instead it shows 1 in place of Y/N.

## 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:

"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)...

## Pivot Table :: Data Field Names And Growth %

Jun 1, 2009

I have excel 2007. My data sheet has columns for the sales for May 2009 and the sales for May 2008. Next to it is a column for the % growth between the 2 periods. When I put all this info into a pivot table and add the formula as below to the pivot table it shows the correct values for all the individual customers but not for the Grand Total line. Here it just shows a zero.

Can you also help so that the names on the data side of the Pivot table is the same as on your original sheet where it is reading the info from, and doesn't say "Sum of May 2009, but only says "May 2009".

Please show how you would work out the % Growth between the two different columns, as I tried it, and on the individual cell the data is correct but on the grand total line it shows it as zero and does not apply the formula.

I used the formula

=SUM('MAY 2009 H&B'/'MAY 2008 H&B'*100-100)

=sum(33,296,271 / 46,852,649 *100-100)

Result should be -29, but it shows zero

## Copy Pivot Table Data To Worksheet & Name Them As Per Their Field Name

Oct 23, 2007

I've tried my best to describe my dilema. I import data in an SQL query from a mainframe. This data shows a job number, site address, job number and a length. Multiple lengths on the same site appear as separate entries. I use a pivot table to calculate a total length and also formulas to determine whether a site is in an East or West area. I then need to then be able to copy the 'East' jobs to an 'East' worksheet and the 'West' jobs to the 'West' worksheet. But, I only want a site to appear once with the total length.

## Pivot Table Is Displaying 1/29/14 For Every Cell In Particular Data Field That Is Blank

Jan 23, 2014

On my data tab I've got a column for "review date." Some of those cells are blank. When you go to the pivot table, the respective cell for that blank.review date cell displays the date 1/29/14. There is no data in the cell on the data tab, so why would it be displaying 1/29/14? I want it to either say "blank" or just be blank. It does this for every review date cell that is blank.

## Change/Move Pivot Table Row Field To Column Field

## Pivot Table Name And Pivot Field Properties Not Getting Recorded?

Apr 20, 2014

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.

## Group Field Not Available In Pivot Table?

May 7, 2014

why the Group Field option is not available in my Pivot Table. Other Pivot Tables in the same document, using data formatted the same way will let me format the data (the original data is in MM/DD/YY [h]:mm format).

## Adding New Field To Pivot Table

Jul 5, 2014

I have two fields in pivot table, "HATA TOPLAMI" and "SIRA NO". "Hata toplamı" is sum of items, and "Sıra no" is count of items. İ want to divide these two fields and add it to the pivot table, like "HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO". I have tried calculated field function from pivot table. İ wrote "="HATA TOPLAMI" / "SIRA NO"".

## Expanding Only One Field In Pivot Table?

Jan 9, 2014

I have a problem in expanding/collapsing fields in pivot table.

I have source table with GROUP, SUBGROUP, ACCOUNT and AMOUNT. In pivot table I've put GROUP, SUBGROUP and ACCOUNT in Row labels respectivly, and AMOUNT in values.

The question is: Is it possible to expand only field Other costs in group Distribution costs while field Other costs in group Production costs stays collapsed?

## Pivot Table/Calculate The Field

Feb 23, 2009

I have attached a simple test file. The data tab has two columns in the pivot range. The third column is _not_ in the pivot range, but is there to show the result I'm trying to get with the pivot.

The idea is to count the number of people whose entry dates are greater than 2/1/2009. My third data column gives a correct result, but a similar formula in the calculated field of the pivot table gives a completely wrong result (a date), where my goal is to generate a zero, a one, or a sum of zeros and ones.

It could be a formatting issue, but that would not explain why all the pivot results have the _same_ wrong answer.

I'm new to PTs and calculated fields, and expect I've made a naive mistake that an expert could easily spot.

I have a pivot table Field, with 3 listed items, referencing data from 3 separate worksheets - named 2004, 2005, 2006.
