Unable To Drag PivotTable Fields

Aug 27, 2007

The issue is that for every pivot table in any file running on my machine, I am unable to drag the column or row values to change the sort order - I.e. if the row is Jan/Feb/Mar/etc., I can't drag Jan down to the middle or rearrange them - it will sort by ascending or descending value just fine, but simply won't allow me to rearrange - the 4-way arrow doesn't appear where it should when mousing over the fields. I can drag fields on/off and from/to the column/row/data sum areas, but I simply cannot re-arrange the order of the values (and yes, the Autosort checkbox is set to "manual" in field settings.)

Unhide All PivotTable Fields

Jan 11, 2008

In a pivot table the user is able to select multiple entities to hide in the 'Hide Items' field of the PivotTable Fields window. I would like to create a macro (or edit a macro in the VB Editor) that willl reset all 'Hide Items' in the PivotTable Fields window...effectively unselecting any previously hidden entities.

Link PivotTable Page Fields

Nov 20, 2006

I have a workbook with three sheets. The first is a list of employees with their managers. The second is the data about those employees (who they sold product to, and how much, on what date). The third is the PivotTable with the employees' sales. I have the Customer name in the Row field, and the amount in the Data field. I have two page fields - the Manager's name and the Employee's name. The example that I'm using so as not to violate my NDA is a Northwind knockoff. That's why the names probably sound familiar.

What I want to do is have the second pivottable page field (Employee) change, so that when I choose a manager's name, only the employees who report to that manager show up in that page field. I have a named range called "allEmp" (all employees), one called "buchanan" (all the employees who report to Steven Buchanan), one called "fuller" (all the employees who report to Andrew Fuller). (File attached, btw).

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Dim mgrRange As Range
mgrRange = Range("allEmp")
Select Case ActiveCell.Value
Case "Andrew Fuller"
ActiveWorkbook.PivotTable("EmpSales").PivotFields("Employee").CurrentPage = Range("fuller")
Case "Steven Buchanan"
ActiveWorkbook.PivotTable("EmpSales").PivotFields("Employee").CurrentPage = Range("buchanan")
Case "Susan Erickson"................

Group & Hide PivotTable Details Of Certain Fields

Oct 8, 2008

I have a pivot which under a Main product, there are a few sub products. I have act, budget, forecast etc figures but mainly want to only show the Total Act and not the rest, see the highlighted brown columns which I do not want to show in the pivot.

Then I want to group the clients, salesperson together so that the details can be hidden.

This is a small example. I have a large pivot table with lots of teams and salespeople and clients and a few main products with a few sub products within it. Grouping it manually is going to be very difficult and would appreciate if there is some way to automate it either via pivot capability or VBA.

Pivot Tables & Formula: Build A Pivottable And Let Users Move The Fields Around

Apr 28, 2007

I'm trying to do at the moment is build a user interface for some Excel Data. Now, the natural way to do this would be to build a pivottable and let users move the fields around, and this is how the thing has worked in previous iterations of the workbook. It seems now, hoever, that we're trying to cater for users for whom pivot tables are just a little too much and to summaries data based on listboxes etc.

What I'm interested in knowing is whether there are ways of interacting with PivotTables beyond the GETPIVOTDATA function - is there any way, for example, to select different field items to show based upon an input from elsewhere? How does one tell a pivottable what to do from outside the pivottable?

Excel Pie Chart - Unable To Use Sums For Fields / Axis?

Aug 4, 2014

I have a set of data for hours of work. I want to make a simple Pie Chart: % of Hours worked overtime, and % of work not overtime.

The Data Looks something like this:

Name,Normal Hours Worked, Overtime Worked

So I want a pie chart that has 2 wedges.
~25% labeled as overtime worked
~75% labeled as normal hours worked

Whenever I put these values in the pivot table and use SUM, it is trying to sum based on # of hours matching, instead of by the column Name... so it gets divided into a bunch of different pie wedges.

PivotTable Code: The PivotTable Field Name Is Not Valid

Aug 3, 2007

The code I'm using that results in the following error message: "Run-Time Error '1004':

The pivotTable field name is not valid. To create a pivottable report, you must use data that is organized as a list with labeled columns. If you are changing the name of a pivottable field, you must type a new name for the field." Here's the code, I've seperated it into each sub hoping that will make it easier to read:

Option Explicit

Sub main_prog()
Call td_metrics_import
Call pt_td_metrics("Pivot_Page1", "PivotTable1", "PivotTable2")
Call pt_td_metrics("Pivot_Page2", "PivotTable3", "PivotTable4")

Values Appear Twice In PivotTable Row Labels

Jan 31, 2010

I have a PivotTable that is summarizing a data table. In the configuration panel, I've dragged one column ("C92") to the "Row Labels" area. Likewise, I've dragged the same column to the "Values" area, where it defaults to "Count of C93". So far, so good.

I should mention that my values in column C92 are the whole numbers 0-7 and the string "NA". But in the output chart, each of these values is listed twice! And each count of each value is different! I'm attaching a cut-down version of the spreadsheet that shows this behavior.

Automate Autofill For PivotTable

Dec 22, 2009

I have a document that is exported from an SQL database. Once I have the data I need to throw it into a PivotTable to analyze it. However, the export doesn't fill every cell with the information - instead displaying the cell value once until a new value comes up. Therein, there are often a number of blank cells underneath each entry.

I can overcome this by going into the document and autofilling each cell that doesn't have the information in it. However, some of the reports are very large and it is quite time consuming.

What I'm after is for a bit of VBA that will autofill the cells until it hits another new cell value then autofill this down until it hits another new cell value, etc.

I have attached a dummy copy of the report - one sheet, Raw Data, shows the data as it is exported and the other, Autofilled, shows how I would like the data to be displayed after the code is run.

Adding Columns Within A Pivottable

Jun 19, 2007

I have a data worksheet, which contains about 20,000 lines of journal entry info. There is a separate column for debit and credit, not one "amount" column. On another worksheet, I am aggregating the data to review the impact for this series of journal entries over a time period (12 months). Thus, my pivottable contains "Accounts" in the "ROW" and "Period" in the "COLUMN" sections of the PivotTable Layout. The "Debit" and "Credit" fields are then summed in the "DATA" portion of the PivotTable.

My issue revolves around getting the actual impact for each account for each time period. Essentially, I need an extra column inserted between each time period that sums the debits and credits for that period. Do I need a macro for this (not any experience with macros)? My file is way to big to share, so let me know if a pared-down sample would work.

Refresh All PivotTable In Workbook

Jan 10, 2008

I am trying to run a macro inside a Worksheet_Change event.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel. Range)
If Not Application.Intersect(Target, Range("Mon_Data")) Is Nothing Then
If Target.Value > 0 Then
Sub Refresh_PivotTables()
' Refresh_PivotTables Macro
' Macro recorded 10/1/2008 by JackChappers

as you can see, i put the macro within the worksheet_Change event so that, when data is changed on another sheet (target.Value >0), the Macro is run (the macro, by the way, refreshes some Pivot Tables).

The refresh Refresh_PivotTables Macro works on it's own, but when i use it like this, i get the message:

"Compile error:

Ambiguous name detected: Worksheet_Change"

If it makes any difference, i also have another Worksheet_Change event above performing another action. I think that may be the problem, if it is, how do i run them both without the error?

Thus, I ask how to write a wildcard filter that will work in this pivottable.

PivotTable Error: Field Name Is Not Valid.

I successfully created two PivotTables two days ago, but when I added more rows of data to the source worksheet I could not refresh either PivotTable view. So after much frustration, I deleted both worksheets and again tried to create a new PivotTable using the wizard. I keep getting this error, and have no idea what it is telling me so that I can go about fixing it:

"The PivotTable field name is not valid. To create a PivotTable report, you must use data that is organized as a list with labeled columns. If you are changing the name of a PivotTable field, you must type a new name for the field."

Error Extracting Pivottable Data With VBA

Mar 29, 2007

I try to extract datas from a pivottable (so one data source) which could change.

The items of one field are changing (given by the user through Inputbox): "batch"

The items of the second field ("type plate") are at each time visible (the macro make them visible to have the complete information concerning the "batch")

So I want to extract values and labels from one particular pivottable (the one I display), selecting several batches. But the problem is that some of the items have no value, so disapear fron the table) even if they are visible. As I extract the value on each item (see code below) I get an error message saying "runtime error 1004 application-defined" when the macro read "valeur".

Dim pt1 As PivotTable
Dim pf As PivotField
Dim pi As PivotItem
Dim pj As PivotItem
Dim i As Double
Dim valeur As String

I tried to go through this problem using "on error goto solution" but it works only one time, and after same error message

How coud I avoid to calculate "valeur" with the Items (pi) not displayed ?

Sum Total Of Calculated Field In PivotTable

Apr 28, 2008

i have a database of monthly sales of a regional distributor and im using a pivot table to manipulate my data. i want to show only what account makes a positive sales for a specific product and i want to get the total number of accounts who have the positive sales. there are multiple entries in my database, the condition is if an account have positive sales of a specific product regardless on how many times the account bought the result should be 1 (meaning one buying account)

i've tried to use a calculated field in my pivot table, i get the correct result per account but when it comes to grand total its not getting the sum of the total number of accounts. here is the sample of what i need to get..

you can see that there are multiple entries but it shows only 1 per account when it has at least 1 positive sales of a specific product and 0 if it hasn't any sales/negative... and for the total it adds the number of accounts to get the total number of buying accounts..

‘The PivotTable Report Will Not Fit On The Sheet. Do You Want To Show As Much As Poss

Aug 28, 2009

Since I'm making a PivotTable with my macro, when it runs I always get this...

‘The PivotTable report will not fit on the sheet. Do you want to show as much as possible?’

I always choose yes, because in the end the user isn't going to use all of the data, they will be narrowing it down. Anyway, this comes up a few times througout the macro. Is there something I can put in the code that, if pop up box, always choose yes?

Changing Source Data Of An Existing PivotTable

Jun 2, 2008

I'm trying to change the source data of an existing PivotTable so that it is linked to a raw data source in another workbook. The workbook it pulls the data from changes every month so I made this flexible code that is meant to pull the raw data every month:

Sub ImportNewSource()
Dim Filt As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FilePath As Variant
Dim ThisPivot As PivotTable
Dim FileName As String
Dim ShtNum As Integer
Dim LastRow As Long

The PivotTable field name is not valid. To create a PivotTable report, you must use data that is organized as a list with labeled columns. If you are changing the name of a PivotTable field, you must type a new name for the field.

When I do it manually, it works just fine. There aren't any changes to the PivotTable field or anything like that so I'm stumped. I've tested the range that has the source data and its selecting the proper range and when I do it manually it works fine.
