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 have a big list of names of people that have completed a bunch of training they have completed. I want to be able to run a pivot table/chart and only count a user once vice each time they have completed a training. So in otherwords I want to get a count of how many people are on the list vice how many certifications they have.
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 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 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.
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?
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.
It's a given that formatting doesn't alter underlying values in all areas of Excel, merely changing the way cells look. But in the attached I show two pivot tables using exactly the same data with the sole exception that the first one has the date numbers formatted as numbers whereas the 2nd PT has the date numbers formatted as dates.
With the 2nd PT it will accept the Group by month functionality whereas the 1st PT won't.
On the face of it PTs seem to take more notice of the way a number is formatted when it comes to grouping rather than treating the number as a date which it can group.
How to filter the pivot table in the attachment by the Posted date. I only want to look at the data for dates within 30 days of today, and can't figure out how to do that manually, much less programatically. The attachement is a small sample of a huge report I receive; all I get is the pivot, which contains tons of information. I filter it down by my various criteria, but that's still hundreds of thousands of lines. Limiting to the last 30 days can make a huge difference, but I can't find the trick to it.
I have a pivot table where I would like to add a column for the date next to each item listed in the pivot table. When I do this the pivot table sums the date, which is an incorrect number because it is adding a date to other dates. If I move the data to the row option it moves it under each item and the formatting is off. Is there a way to add the date in as a column without it sub totaling? I need the other columns to keep their totals.
I also was having issue creating a calculated field - below the total to show cost per item and then the profit. Is this possible.
I created a screen shot example to show what it is doing. (1st picture)
I have a table with business data such as units sold, revenue etc. entered by date (1/1/14, 1/2/14...) for 4 different business units. I have this data summarized in a pivot table. The pivot table is set up with the date filter as a row label. I would like to have a consolidated report on another worksheet with a drop down menu being used to control the date filter on my pivot table.
The following items would be on the drop down:
Yesterday, Month to Date, Quarter 1, Quarter 2, Quarter 3, Quarter 4 and Year to Date.
I have a master list that is updated in real time by linked worksheets from several people. While my actual report covers 7 managers and 7 different products (“contract types” in this example), I have summarized and simplified the input in the attached file. There are three pertinent dates – the date assigned to the manager (col A), the date completed by the manager (col F), and the date approved by the executive (Col G).
These dates will span month ends and I need to be able to provide monthly reports that provide details on the number of contracts and the dollar value all contracts assigned and completed by the manager during the month (say, February) as well as any contracts assigned in any month which remain uncompleted at the current month-end (e.g. the $7,500 Smith contract assigned on Feb 21st that remains uncompleted and the Feb 26th $200 Jones contract which was uncompleted at Feb 28th, but completed in early March, in this example). Can this be done directly in a Pivot table from the full master list, or will I need to have separate sheets in my workbook where I extract the pertinent records for that month?
I have to generate a report using a pivot table, that tells me what work was done on time and what was late. Entering a formula outside the pivot table sees the scheduled start date drop downs as "blank" and says they are late when they are not. I cannot seem to use the value fields when I try to create a calculation field within the table. I use 2010 at work, 2007 at home.
then the pivot table of data shows Dept, Sum of Hours, Sum of Total ($), Sum of Days
When you click on the drop down to adjust the filter for the Date it gives you the whole list of dates, day by day as it is in the source data.
Is there a way to make it in the filter by month and year, the way it would in an ordinary filter. So if I wanted to have the pivot table show only the values with an October date I can, rather than having to deselect all and then individually check the boxes for the 1st through to the 31st of October.?
When using a Pivot Table I regularly filter on known data specific to me i.e. WBS codes.
Column ‘A’ contains the WBS Codes which can be as many a 1000, however, I only need to filter out the 10 or so I require, and currently I uncheck all the records and manually scroll through the list to check the ones I require.
In order to speed things up I recorded a macro which works fine, however, If I need to check any new codes I would have to record the macro again, as I tried to edit the Macro and all it does is to un check all the other codes I don't need.
Is it possible to create a Macro that picks up a range of data that is then used to filter on. (i.e. only the records I require)
In my workbook I have about 20 sheets (less in the attached sample), and on most sheets I’d like to query data for each day and find an average value based on the time and then copy that result into another sheet. I’m not sure if I’ll need 2 macro’s for this or if one can be used.
Here’s a quick description:
Assuming that I am currently in the sheet I want to run the macro, then I will either input “1:45” or “0:45” into a popup box, or I could always simply input the 1:45 or 0:45 in the code itself. I’m flexible
If I input 1:45, then I’d like the macro to find the first 1:45 in Column B and the value in the same row in Column F will be used in the calculation. Once 1:45 is located, then the macro moves up to find 22:45 in Column B and the value in the same row in Column F will be used in the calculation.....
I have a report I am attempting to populate with data from a pivot table in another worksheet. Column A holds all the reference numbers (primary key), column B contains various start dates, and I want column C to contain all the payments made since the start date for each reference number.
The source data is a pivot table with Row = Reference number, column = transaction date, values = transaction amounts. This is an extremely large table, as I'm processing data from almost 1,200 cases, which each have around 20 payments spread over the last year, on completely random days. What I would like to do is build a formula in my report which looks up the records for the reference number from column A, and then adds up all the payments which have been made after the date in column B (and ignore any payments in the table which are before that date).
And to make things more complicated:
if an error is generated, it needs to return as 0, not #N/AThe report has the dates in UK format dd/mm/yyyy, but the pivot table has the dates in SQL format: yyyy-mm-ddThe pivot table is connected to a SQL database via ODBC and has to refresh every time it is opened.
On a sheet called, "Details", I have a pivot table that has three fields in the column area, Calendar type, Description, and Dates. I want to filter the pivot table based on a label filter in the Dates column. The filter should be between two dates (in D4 and D5) that are entered on another sheet and passed to the Details sheet through formulas in cells D4 and D5.
I have attached the following code to a button on a different sheet.
The code successfully filters for the employee name (which is a report filter in the pivot table) which is in a named cell.
I am having trouble with passing the start and end dates to my pivot table filter. I do not get any errors, the filter is simply blank.
Private Sub CommandButton3_Click() Sheets("Details").Select Dim pt As PivotTable Dim Employee As String Dim SDate As String Dim EDate As String
I am working on a pivot table just like the one on the picture here [URL] .......
Ideally I wanted the sums by date to be displayed horizontally and not vertically as shown in the picture, but was unable to do so. Anyways, I want to be able to filter those dates, so I can display data just from an specific date, and then change this date whenever I want and the new data will show up.
I tried doing by the checkbox that appears under the "data" dropdown on top of the column; However, when I uncheck a specific date, it dissapears and I have to add it again if I want to see it. Is there a way to keep the values on the dropdown even after I uncheck them? Or even another way to filter the information? Below is the pic of the dropdown I get when trying to sort the data, But as I said If I uncheck one of the values, it dissapears from the list.
