Unnecessary Blank Rows In Excel 2003 Pivot Table
I have a pivot table based on a large dataset within Excel itself. The dataset looks as follows:

Make A Pivot Table In 2003 Based On This Query
I have an SQL Server that has a query (a view stored on the server) which takes roughly 10-20 seconds to execute. This execution time is the same in Excel 2007 if I import data to worksheet/pivottable. It is also the same in Excel 2003 while importing data into a worksheet. It returns about 350 rows.
However, if I try to make a pivot table in 2003 based on this query, it is much slower. I can set it up fine, but refreshing this pivot table takes at least 10-20x as long to complete, in the order of 5-20 minutes, to sometimes taking so long that I give up and kill it by hitting escape a bunch.
It's important to note that I am forced to used Microsoft Query to set up a pivot table in Excel 2003. There is no other way, I believe.
While it is running, Excel just sits there saying "Waiting for data to be returned from Microsoft Query".
Here is the weirdest part. Once the refresh starts, Microsoft Query loads in the background, you can see it on the taskbar. I believe that is expected behavior, but if I click on MS Query and view its datatable, I can see all the data is sitting there.
So what is the hold up? MS Query has the data. Excel is waiting for it to be returned. What is going on? And remember from above, if I do a simple import data to worksheet, MS Query is not used and everything is fast.
So my question is does anybody have any tips/advice on this issue? I need a way to not use MS Query for a pivottable's data source or I need a way to make MS Query not freeze up. I don't get why MS Query needs to be involved in the first place since I am not doing any parameters or so forth.
2003 Pivot Table: Show The Content Of The Cell (non Calculation)
i have a database of the kind:
Model Version Color Store
1 a zz HH
2 b xx QQ
3 c yy OO
4 d ww PP
I need to obtain in the y axis the model, and in the x axis the store.
The data per each model and store should be: the version and color.
I'm using Pivot table to do that, but i'm only able to obtain the "count" (or sum or other formula) but I'm not able to obtain the content of the cell.
Store HH PP
1 Version a d
Color zz ww
2 Version b c
Color xx yy
How To Delete Unnecessary Rows?
I want to delete unnecessary rows in a 332324 row s/s containing 30000+ ranges of data of differing sizes.
The minimum necessary requirement for each range is 4 rows. There should also be one blank row between each range.
Does anyone know code which will carry out such an instruction please?
Pivot Table Should Have No Blank Cells
How do I make sure that my pivot table has no blank cells?
For instance if I have a store with more then 1 barcode of sales against it it will give me the store once at the top left cell of the first column and then the list of barcodes in the column next to it.
I want the store name to appear next to each barcode. Pivot tables make vlookups a pain in the arse to do and I'm sick of having to get around that by copying the pivot table into a blank sheet as values then using the autofilter to filter the blanks and use an ='theabovecell' formula to fill the blanks for all of the columns one by one.
Hide Blank Cell Pivot Table
I'm using pivot table and i want to erase the blank cell that come out with pivot table and replace it with number 0 or -, how can i do that ? i've be try to do this by go to the table option and in the empty cells check list i've put 0 or - but the pivot table still come out "blank".
Pivot Table Blank Cells (eliminate #DIV/0)
I have a pivot table that compares year-on-year sales data for accounts. If an account didn't have sales for the earlier year, the custom calculation errors #DIV/0! which I can show as at the account level. Problem is at the subtotal levels, I also get the error when I should be getting a value for the group. The error for the one account is affecting my subtotal.
Is there a way I can Show Empty Cells as a VALUE instead of TEXT of say... 0.001 so I can eliminate the error messages?
Pivot Table Can't Handle 64,000 Rows
I have 63,893 rows and 3 columns (Parents, Component and Qty) in a table. This would be typical for a Bill of Materials showing the Qty of Components in a Parent. A lot of Components are common to a mumber of Parents.
In total I have 4,259 Parents and 10,904 Components making up this 63,893 rows in my table.
The problem is that neither the Pivot function in Excel nor Access will handle it, least not the way I'm doing it - the bog standard way ! I just get the "Excel cannot complet this task with available resourses......" message.
Anyone any ideas how to get a Pivot or something resembling one so that I end up with the Components as the Row Header and the Parents as Column Headers.
I know I could go in and manipulate the data but I want to be able to create this Pivot like report every month or so without having to reinvent the wheel each time.
Sorting Rows In Pivot Table
I have a pivot table and i am trying to display the rows in order of relevance. I have a bit of code that will sort the rows into the order I want them which I have included. My problem is that sometimes I will have rows that will not be there, If position 3 doesn't exist I would expect it to display 1,2,4,5 but instead I get an error message.
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable11").PivotFields("Baan Order").PivotItems("Nomination") _
.Position = 1
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable11").PivotFields("Baan Order").PivotItems("Full") _
.Position = 2
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable11").PivotFields("Baan Order").PivotItems("Equal") _
.Position = 3
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable11").PivotFields("Baan Order").PivotItems("Target") _
.Position = 4
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable11").PivotFields("Baan Order").PivotItems("None") _
.Position = 5
Dynamic Rows For Pivot Table
I wish to create a Pivot Table. It is based on source data with fixed columns (A to W) and dynamic rows. The following is my
Dim WS As Worksheet
Dim DataRange As Range
Set WS = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet1")
DataRange = Range("A1:W1", Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
ThisWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:=WS.Range(DataRange)).CreatePivotTable _
tabledestination:=Sheets("sheet2").Range("A1"), tablename:="PivotTable1", defaultversion:=xlPivotTableVersion10
Dim PT As PivotTable
Set PT = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").PivotTables("PivotTable1")
PT.PivotFields("Type of Work").Orientation = xlPageField
PT.PivotFields("Profit Center").Orientation = xlRowField
PT.PivotFields("B/(W) CTD Net Rev").Orientation = xlDataField
Because I'm going to use it in my work, it must be reusable. And every time I use it, the numbers of row are different. Therefore, I made the source data into a dynamic range. The range changes when rows change. However, problem always appears in the following line:....................
Pivot Table, Show Empty Rows
In my Pivot table I have 3 fields in the "header - section" of each row
There is also the possibilty in the Page section to choose between subjects (eg physics, chemistry, biology etc) When all rows are displayed there are 68 in total
When I choose Physics there are about 30 customers that have a value in 1 of the rows. Excel shows 30 rows, but I would like all 68 row to be shown, because these are the values that are important to me. I have tried a lot of settings in the pivot table but can't find the correct 1.
What happens a lot is the the rows are "multiplied", meaning that the 1st row header has every combination of the 2nd and 3rd and so one. Which setting is needed to get what I want?
Pivot Table Columns/rows And Subtotals
attached Pivot Table. There is a section, which I've marked, that shows how I want my Pivot Table report to look. I've had Excel 2007 kick me out a number of times when I've tried to filter and shift rows and columns to accomplish this and areas are frequently grayed out. Can someone please assist?
I'm attaching a file rather than going into a lot of detail here because I think a visual is easier here. The raw data, my attempt at the Pivot Table and my desired outcome all show on the same tab.
Select Data Rows For Pivot Table Code
I have worksheet with data . Everytime number of rows with some data in it changes . Like sometime there are 100 rows with data or other tome it may be 57 only. I want to write VB code to select only those rows which have data. Thereafter I will use Pivot Table code to get required information. I know VB code to generate Pivot Code. But what happens is that if any blank row gets selected in data range for Pivot Tables, thereafter grouping by "Month" is not done.
go through attached file? In Module 1 ( which contains macro ) instead of R1C1:R8C4 , I want range with data only.
Pivot Table Total Rows Don't Match Data
I have run a pivot table state, city, address, floor and all the maths works out fine.. but the name in the 'total' rows, does not match the name in the data rows.. e.g. texas, dallas, 57 oilrig street has total rows saying CA toal,Newark total, 560 mission street total (obviously split across the appropriate rows for each total) but in each case, all those square feet, or dollars add up perfectly, for the data rows above them. double clicking the totals shows no sign of the rogue location... but these same entries are in EVERY set of totals in the pivot table!
POSSIBLE clue.. I generated the pivot at home, on Office 2003, and am now viewing it at work in 2002 version. (buit this could have nothing to do with it at all. Am I missing something obvious, or do i have good reason to pull my hair outr in frustration (first time this has happenned in a year of doing these reports daily)
Delete Rows Meeting Condition For Pivot Table Source
My worksheet has a report name in cell A1, a brand name in B2, price name in C2, and color in D2. Row 3 has a table header in cell range A3:E3 followed by rows of table contents at the end of which is a row of empty cells. This sequence repeats itself for a new product: a row with the report name in column A, followed by a row with a new brand name, price and color in the same columns as before followed by the same table header and table contents. The number of products (with the previously mentioned details and table) vary so I would like to write a macro that is not dependent on a set number of products. Each table varies in the number of rows but never contains empty cells and always ends with a row of empty cells. I want to delete all rows with the report name and have all products in one table with the brand, price and color added to the table header and contents.
Delete Blank Rows Above Data Table
The below code deletes blank columns in two work books. Now I would like to add to this code by performing an additional action on the worksheets. Below is the code that I have so far:

Dim MFBooks(2) As Workbook
Dim lngIndex As Long
Set MFBooks(1) = Workbooks("MF BANK EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls")
Set MFBooks(2) = Workbooks("MF CP EXPOSURE SUMMARY.xls")
For lngIndex = 1 To 2
For Each Item In MFBooks(lngIndex).Worksheets .....................
Suppress Zeros In A Pivot Table (search Out Any Zeros And Replace With A Blank Cell)
with the data in the attached sheet, I create several different pivot tables that need show the count of the information in the columns M:DU. My issue is that the data is sent to me from a third party and the columns contain zeros that cause the counts to inflate.
What I would like to be able to do is run a macro that will search out any zeros in M:DU and replace them with a blank cell.
Unfortunately the number of rows increases with every monthly reporting cycle so the macro would need to be able to accommodate for that.
Change The Date On One Of The Pivot Table And Pivot Table Match
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.
Getting A "blank Field" In My Pivot Table
I'm using for my pivot table so I always end up getting a "blank Field" in my pivot table.
So when the above offset function is applied, it picks up the above 4 fields PLUS it adds a blank row to the bottom so it is actually picking up 5 fields.
Pivot Table Chaos: Blank Cells Return 0, Empty Cells Return Nothing
Hi, I desperately need help with a pivot-table and can't find anyone else who's ever had this problem...I have a very large healthcare data table which for simplicity I will describe as follows. In essence the first two columns respectively are (A) location and (B) month. Let's say the third column (C) is the number of cases of the disease kidpox treated in each health centre during that month. The fourth column (D) is the total number of cases of everything treated during that month in each clinic. The fifth column (E) is the proportion of cases of this disease over all consultations for each health centre and month, and the formula in E2 is .....
Months To Be Sorted In Ascending Order In Pivot Table, Want To Use Multiple Colors In Pivot Charts
My input data for Pivot table has a column named "Month". The month values are like April 07, April 08, Nov07 in random order for period between Jan 07 to Aug 08.
When I create a pivot Table, this column is sorted alphabetically (April 07 is followed by April 08) but I need it to be sorted in the ascending order with respect to month (April 07 is followed by May 07).
I further use this data to plot a Pivot Chart. There is another issue here. I want to use separate colors for each series. I do not know how to achieve above 2 things.
Refresh Pivot Tables Linked To Pivot Table
I currently have several pivot table that's linked to a single pivot table(let's call it X) in the same workbook. I'm doing this to limit the file size because the data in X comes from a text file that has millions of lines. However, it's such a pain every time I need to update the tables because simply clicking "refresh" does not update those tables that are linked to X with new data. I would have to instruct the wizard in every linked table to point to X every time. I'm trying to write a small program to re-point to X for each of those other pivot tables whenever i refresh data. However, after trying to record the steps to do this I'm still unable to run these

Autoupdate Table - 2003
I am currently working on a workbook designed for resource planning. It contains a worksheet named "The Team" which contains information about every person on the team. It has columns for First name, Last name, and Division.
There is also a worksheet for each division; Each contain 3 sections that are either inputs or formulas, with the people of that division in column A.
My issue is adding people into this workbook. At the moment, if I want to add people into this workbook, I have to insert a row in "The Team", fill out their info, and then go to their division's sheet and insert a row in each 3 sections. This is a rather tedious way to do it and I wanted to know if there was some way I could automate it.
At the moment, I have created a macro that serves to Insert a row and copy formulas, but leave constants blank. It is nice for inserting the rows, but I still have to manually go to the division sheet and execute the macro in all 3 sections.
How To Mimic A Pivot Table Without A Pivot Table
I have a list of items and their associated quantities, many items appearing multiple times. I need a concise list that summarizes each item and sums all of its quantities.
The obvious solution is a pivot table. However, I update this list frequently and for some reason the pivot table is difficult to update. is there a function or simple vba code that I could put into this workbook that would work better than my unflexible pivot table?
Count Pivot Fields In Pivot Table
I am trying to find a way to count the total number of pivot fields in a pivot table so I can remove ghost pivot items that are no longer in the pivot table data. My code for this subroutine is as follows;
Dim ghost As PivotItem
Dim pt As PivotTable
Set pt = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
pt.ManualUpdate = True
For Count = 1 To 10
On Error Resume Next
For Each ghost In pt.PivotFields(Count).PivotItems
pt.ManualUpdate = False
My code makes an assumption that I have 10 Pivot Fields or less. It would be nice to actually know the number of Pivot Fields so my "For Count" Loop would be more efficient. In otherwords;..............
Import Data From Access Table To Pivot Table - Enable Auto Refresh
I have enable Refresh on Open for my excel pivot table, but user need to click "Enable Automatic Refresh" , only solution i came across is to change the registry setting. Which i dont have access to edit registry(admin disable the access).
Alternate solution i try to use Access macro to automate the process and use Outputto save it as a excel file A. Then use excel file B to update pivot table from excel file A.(as excel A data is always latest)
The problem is i will get "....A file name already exist...do you want to overwrite.." prompt.
Which defeat the automate process.
Any other solution to enable the automatic refresh on open the excel workbook?
Or Access can overwrite the exist file or save it as another file name with timestamp ?
Apply A Filter In A Pivot Table And Extract Results In A Table
I have made a pivot table and I dlike to identify with a macro the documents with net value over 1000. Then extract these values next to the respective sales documents in an are near the pivot table somewhere. The fields are called Document and Sum of Net value. Of course the pivot is very variable one time it has 3000 records and another 5000.

How To Recognize Unnecessary Reference Files In The Vbe
I made an excell document with many many vba codes/procedures. While creating it, I was doing some tests/playing with the references in the visual Basic Editor.
My problem is now I dont know which ones are necessary and which dont. I want to remove any unnecesarry reference. How can I know which ones are necessary for my project to run properly and which dont?
To Clean Out Unnecessary Data From A File
I need to clean out unnecessary data from a file, (see this example text file Link),
I'm not sure how to go about this in excel,
basically every file starts with 9 cells that needs to be deleted, then two cells of real data then one with garbage that needs to be deleted, it goes like that for 40 cells,
then again 10 cells of garbage that needs to be deleted, then 40 of real data and goes like that up to 3000 lines,
I know it sounds confusing but if you take a look at linked file from above it will make more sense, (to save it right click on "clean up.txt" and then save target as)
at the end I need to have all cells full of data
Pivot Table: Table That Shows As A Header The URL
I want for my set of data. The attached .xls is pretty straight forward: the first column is a list of people (identified by their customer number) and the second column is the URL they visited.
Since many people went to multiple pages, there are dupes between the two columns, but all of the rows are unique. What i am looking for is a table that shows as a header the URL (just one) and then the list of people that went to that URL under the header. So it's really just one column of information. It seems like a perfect task for a pivot table.
See Hidden Rows With Scroll Bar In 2003
I have a worksheet where rows 22 through 52 are allotted for invoice information. Now, not every job is going to have 30 invoices, and I'd like to be able to hide 25 of those rows and have a scrollbar for that section of the page so that when a) user needs to enter invoice info they can scroll to an empty row, and b) when reviewing the data user can scroll through and see it all. The rows above 22 and below 50 are job info/totals and need to remain visible.
Early attempts to solve this conundrum resulted in a scroll bar that was capable only of changing the date entered for the first invoice (Date is the info in A22, which was the linked cell).
Sort & Re-write Column Data To Rows - 2003
I have company asset data listed by item on wksht 1. Example:
Company A Computer 200
Company C Coffee Machine 21
Company A Car A123
Company B Computer 70
Company A Chair B14
Company B Desk C56
Company C Computer 59
Company C Desk C789
I want to sort and covert the column data on wksht1 to row data on wksht2. Example:
Company A Computer 200, Car A123, Chair B14
Company B Computer 70, Desk C56
Company C Computer 59, Coffee Machine 21, Desk C789
I'd like to do this via VBA/Macro(s) if possible.
I have to do this every month, so it would be nice to append the existing data to an "archive" file on wksht3 and then create this months data.
The data is imported each month via a text file with comma delimited fields which become the column data in the top example.
Pivot Table With Dynamic, Updatable Chart, But Not A Pivot Chart!
My boss wants me to design a dynamic, updatable chart in Excel 2003. I initially made a Pivot Chart based on a Pivot Table which worked perfectly, but it doesn't look professional enough when printed (or viewed) and she wants me to approach it a different way.
So, I created a graph based on the data in a Pivot Table, and used dynamic ranges as the source for the graph series so that the chart updates when the criteria fields are changed for the Pivot Table. I then added two combo boxes (ie data validation lists) to the Chart sheet, and wrote VBA code so that whenever the combo box values are changed, the Criteria fields for the Pivot Table on the 2nd sheet are updated accordingly, and this in turn causes the graph to be updated as well.
This solution also worked perfectly, but now I've been told to create the graph without macros.
Does anyone have any suggestions? The requirements/details are as follows:
1. The Pivot Table is on sheet "PIVOT", and the graph is on sheet "GRAPH"
2. The Pivot Table has two criteria - School Name and Year Level
3. On sheet "GRAPH" there are two data-validated fields, School and Year, which only allow the selection of valid Schools and Year Levels
Is there any way to make the Pivot Table update when values are changed in the fields on the CHART sheet so that the chart also updates, but without using code nor a Pivot Chart?
2003 - Merging Four Adjacent Cells With Text And/or Blank Cells
I am trying to merge text, in four adjacent cells in the same row (say cells A1,A2,A3 and A4), into a single cell (say cell A5).
I would like a comma or full stop and then a space between each item merged (cell A5).
The text to be merged may appear in any one of the four cells (cells A1 to A4). Those cells without text are blank.
Only where all 4 cells are blank, will I need cell 'A5' to indicate this.
The formula needs to be relative as I will need to copy the formula down the spreadsheet so that it applies to additional rows.
Blank Data - Pivot Chart
Have an auto-calculator sheet on..mean formulas are input in rows (to calculate yield from no. inspected & no. found defective)....am running a pivot chart based on it to calculate no. of defectives by product and date...
The issue is had selected the entire worksheet for the pivot (including the rows with no data input as of yet but will be inputed in the future)...the problem is the pivot data gets all messed up because of the blank inputs...as soon as i select only the area with data input it works fine.....as of now have put in a generic format so that it reads it...but is there a way where i can leave it blank and still the pivot will refresh and calculate the data when put in????
current format is date-week-no. inspected-no. defective-yield...have input 1 jan 2001 as default date...and 0 and 0 as default no. inspected and no. defective....do not want to keep on doing this...
Retain 2003 Code In 2007 And Back To 2003
I've created a workbook with code to email it to a reviewer then back to the originator when reviewed (along with other editing functions etc.). The problem - The originator is working in Excel 2003, the reviewer in 2007. The macros work great until the reviewer sends it back. I have not been able to figure out which FileFormat:= ???? to use when I SaveAs prior to emailing as an attachment. My Excel 2003 doesn't recognize the .xlsm file and other formats are eliminated the vba/macro coding
