VBA Code To Auto-expand Columns When Pivot Tables Refresh
Mar 30, 2013
I have 2 drop downs that when changed, auto refresh all pivot tables. My problem is getting the columns to auto-adjust based on the refresh or change of the data in the pivot table. Listed below the code I have thus far for the auto-refresh on pivot tables. How to auto expand all columns simultaneously.
The pivot tables are based off of tables on a different sheet(TOS Tables). So the code listed below is in the table sheet, not the pivot table sheet (TOS Customer Level). So followup question will be, which sheet to put the auto-expand columns code?
Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
'If data on this worksheet changes, refresh the pivot table
Sheets("TOS Customer Level").PivotTables("PivotTable2").RefreshTable
Sheets("TOS Customer Level").PivotTables("PivotTable5").RefreshTable
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
I have this code in an active worksheet that works with the exception that when I try refresh other Pivot Tables with the file that it goes into a constant loop.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) ' ' Update the pivot table on this worksheet if data in columns A or B is changed ' If (Target.Column = 1) Or (Target.Column = 2) Then ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1).RefreshTable End If End Sub
I'm hoping to automate some pivot table refreshes. I've got a dozen pivot tables on a sheet all with different numbers. I'm hoping I can write a code that loops through the pivot table names and runs the refresh. Here is the code as it is right now. I've essentially copied, pasted, and changed the name of the pivot table for the refresh.
I would like to create an array in vba (22,21,20,19,18...) that renames the PivotTable and runs the code.
sub Refresh () Dim pt4 As PivotTable Dim Field4 As PivotField Dim NewCat4 As String
I have a dashboard that I created that is driven off one source of data. I have several lists and pivots created from that single source. I have two cells that are driven off of lists that then drive the pivot table. When a user selects an item from the drop down list I would like the pivot table to update. I have two tables like this on the main dashboard. Once the user selects the first data point, the table refreshs as does the second drop down list. After they select the second data point, the second privot table will refesh. Manually everything works prefectly, but when I attempt to automate it with VBA, it will only update the initial pivot and the secondary list, but not the second pivot.
I have posted the current code below.
"SelDept1" and "Wave" are the two cells that contain the drop down lists.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Application. ScreenUpdating = False
This is the first time I’ve tried to use VBA. I’m using Excel 2000. In my excel workbook have 1 sheet called “Cards” in which I Change data in one cell $B$2 (enter a part number) and formulas in this sheet return many values from another sheet “Card Data”. In the “Card Data” sheet, formulas that look through a sheet “Sales Book” and return the data that pertains to the Part Number I entered in the sheet “Cards”. In the sheet “Card Data” there are 3 pivot tables (“PH CALC”, “PH QTY”, and “Pivot Table 3”) that use the Part Number data to show 3 different sets of information. The pivot tables are the source for 3 charts in the “Cards” Sheet.
Problem: Pivot tables don’t automatically refresh. I would like to use VBA code to automatically refresh the pivot tables in the “Card Data” sheet when I change the Part Number in cell $B$2 of the “Cards” sheet, which, in turn, would then update my charts in the “Cards” sheet.
When we create a database in an Excel Spreadsheet and then some pivot tables, we use to copy the spreadsheet with another name, in order to clean the data and update it with another date (for instance, one excel spreadsheet for one BU or country, another one for other bU or country), to avoid creating the pivot tables again and again.
However, when we clean up all the data and enter the new one, on the Pivot Tables fields, you still see the "old data that was deleted"... Do you know if there is a way to delete that data without recretaing the pivot table?
I see some code on the forum on how to automatically refresh pivot tables in excel. I know to press alt + f11, but where do I go from there to put the code in? Also, what if I have several pivot tables in the spreadsheet, is there anyway to refresh all of them automatically?
I have 3 pivot tables on the same page - they all have the same PAGE and ROW fields, just different column and data fields. (may seem weird, but I'm producing reports for non-Excel people and this seems the only way to display info in user-friendly way).
Problem: If a user changes the selection in a Page field, I need the other 2 pivot tables to automatically select the same Page field, so the pivot tables are still all like-for-like.
I've started writing a macro which I can run to do this - below - but
1) I need it to run automatically when any of the page or row fields are updated
2) my macro is probably far too basic for my needs - one of the page fields has 245 values, so the below isn't really going to cut it!...
I have written some simple VBA code so that on Sheet 4 I have a drop down list box to choose the month.
When the month is chosen by the user it moves to the active cell and changes the dates, as well as dates in some other columns (I used activecell.offset ....).
This code runs perfectly fine when I haven't refreshed the pivot tables in the workbook. But straight after a refresh, if I try and change the month it gives a run time error and gets stuck at the first instruction:
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 ?
What I required is either a Macro or Code for formulas in column 'F' in the attached spreadsheet that correspond to the SUM of each description and divided by 37.5 e.g. in F10 the formula should be =D10/37.5 the formula should be F12 D10/37.5 and so on all the way down the Pivot table
My problem is as the amount data increases on the Data Tab the formulas in column 'F' will become out of line with the corresponding Sum of each description so I guess I need some code or formula that check every time the Pivot table is refreshed.
I have just started using pivot tables and I have ran into a problem with the count feature. I have an original data list that breaks down in the pivot table to:
date events on that date
Using the pivot table facilities, I want to do a count of those who said they were going to attend, and those who actually attended. The detailing both of these columns on the original list have a true false designation. When I do the count, the summarised information only counts the number of records for each of these events, and not the 'true' field entries for each of these columns.
How do I count these two parameters for 'true' from the original list in the pivot table so I can see a comparison between these two numbers?
I have a query with ODBC connection to a SQL database. This query's parameter is linked to a cell. The resultant data is the source for a pivot table. I want to refresh the pivot table, when the query is run. I've tried using the cell that triggers the query....but the problem is that the query takes about 10 seconds to run. By the time the query returns new data....the pivot has already refreshed. I need it to refresh AFTER the query is complete.
I tried adding a cell that sums up the data from the query...thinking when THAT changes (due to updated data), to trigger the pivot refresh. Problem is that I don't know the trigger for when the sum cell changes (ie....formula change, not typed in.)
why is pivot table changing numbers to dates. It was fine all along, numbers retained the fromat of source data and now, all numbers in field columns are turning into dates. is there a setting I can change to prevent excel from reformatting numbers to dates?
I've created a spreadsheet in which I want a blank row added when a previous row is filled in any of the boxes. I've used VBA code to insert a row but it just inserts a row in which all the cells are unmerged. I want a blank row the same as the ones we're filling so the document auto expands and there's always a blank row available to fill.
I am trying to have a form that people can fill in and I know it would be far better to use Word for this purpose but it looks so much better in Excel format. The problem is I have merged about 10 cells in a row and copied this format down a few rows.
Now although I have set the 'Text Wrap' option the rows will not auto expand unti to accodate all the text unless I do a ALT-ENTER combo. The problem is anyone using this spreadsheet to complete the form may not know how to use this feature.
Is there anyway Excel can expand automatically or do I need some sort of Macro based in the Worksheet that will automatically adjust the row if the text is too long to fit?
Using Excel 2007.I have references set for Microsoft ADO Ext 2.8 for DDL and Security and Microsoft AciveX Data Objects 2.7 Library.
I am trying to refresh tables in Access dbase from Excel.
I am receiving this error:

Possible to get a pivot table to automatically expand the range selection of data as it grows. I have a worksheet that grows daily and I am running a pivot table from this. If I refresh the pivot table it doesn't pick up new data unless i change the range or i have a huge range selected in the first place. Problem is if i select a huge range then the grouping options i am using won't work correctly.
I have a pivot table in the first sheet which includes the field "Date" as a column label.
In the remaining sheets, except for one, there are pivot tables based on the same underlying dataset which also include the field "Date" as a column label.
I would like to adjust the selection (i.e., exclude some dates) from the column label in the first sheet and see if it is possible to make the same adjustments automatically to the pivot tables in the remaining sheets as well.
note that the field "Date" is used as a Column label, i.e., it is not a Report filter.
I have a single workbook with multiple worksheets. Each worksheet has a different pivot table displaying a different view of the data. Each pivot table uses the same source data at worksheet1.
Each week i add new data to the end of the source data, which means that I need change the source data reference separately in each pivot table to update each pivot table view to include the new data. This is laborious as there are quite a few pivot tables.
Was wondering if there is some way of changing the pivot table source data reference on all pivot tables at the same time.
I have a column containing ranges of apha-numeric codes that I wish to expand into an adjacent column as the following example:
AL 0-4 AL 0
E 4 AL 1
H 16-23 AL 2
I would like the VB to distinguish and expand the different range permutations from the first column, leaving single codes intact and separating comma separated codes as shown. If it makes it easier, I manually split out the comma separated codes onto separate rows.
The attached workbook has a fragment of a table . The column heads are letters representing job nos. The first row is of numbers which will always be multiples of 1000. Subsequent rows are the factors of each number by each number.
My problem is how to structure the columns of the second table so that if a number has a factor of 1 there is one copy of that column head. if the number has a factor of 2 then there are 2 copies of the head, and so on.
The table can vary in size but the first row of each column will always be an integral number of 1000's (e.g. never 1250).
I have not been able to attach the workbook as "ADDFILES" is not visible in the download screen, I hope the above description will be enough.
I have 12 months worth of data in twelve separate workbooks each with a pivot table, I have copy/moved the pivot table tab from each into one workbook so now I have a workbook that consists of 12 tabs each with a pivot table. What I would like to be able to do is create a summary table with the full years data; where I am running into problems is that each months table has slightly different row and column counts and labels making any formula like =sum([sheet 1 cell a1]+[sheet 2 cell a1]) problematic.
