Create Addin That When Clicked Refreshes All Pivot Tables?
Mar 12, 2012
I am trying to create an addin that when clicked refreshes all pivot tables and queries insteading of using the right click refresh or refreshall option button. This is part of a larger project which requires the addin -vs- the built in functionality. Anyways...the following script if I put it in a button and run it...it works perfect....if saved and run as an addin it blows past the refresh code and does not refresh anything, but will cycle through each worksheet.
I also tried thisworkbook.refreshall and activeworkbook.refreshall and neither worked.
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim p As PivotTable
Dim qt As QueryTable
it's possible to create new fields (variables/columns) on the fly (without adding them to the original data table).
For this example, assume I have a column for: job code estimated hours job code actual hours total estimated hours total actual hours
Excel has made it easy to run averages or sums for any of those columns, but what if I want to see what the average proportion for job code estimated hours/ total estimated hours? Is there an easy way to do it with pivot tables without adding a column to my database? I'm working in Excel 2007, my data table size is approximately 100 columns by 200 rows.
I have recorded a Macro to create Pivot Tables, I would like this to run in any workbook. The problem is that every time a Pivot Table is generated Excel alters the number of the table(Pivot Table options). This then does not match that in the Macro as below("PivotTable1").
ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _ "Sheet1!R1C1:R37C6").CreatePivotTable TableDestination:="", TableName:= _ "PivotTable1", DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion10 ActiveSheet.PivotTableWizard TableDestination:=ActiveSheet. Cells(3, 1) ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1).Select With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("GAME") .Orientation = xlRowField .Position = 1 End With With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("LANGUAGE") .Orientation = xlRowField .Position = 2
I created a pivot table. But when I enter a new value in a cell it doesn't appear in the pivot table. I have to create a new pivot table and than I can see that new data is entered in a cell. For instance, my pivot table holds dates as ROW LABELS and COUNT OF these. And when I enter a new date, that date is not shown in the ROW LABELS until I create a new pivot table.
The first sheet is the row data given to me, the second one is where I want my data to be analysed automatically by macros.
I managed to create a pivot table manually to give me the info I want but then I still have to copy all the results from the pivot table sheet to my analysis sheet.
How can I create a macro able to do all that by it self? I tried to record a macro using the recorder but then when I try to play it it gives me an error straight at the beginning in the definition of the pivot table I think.
An example of what I want the pivot table to do is: in the first sheet, go in the small table in column K and L, take the value of L1, then in the row data in column A to J, in column C look for the value in L1, once found, look for the value 1 in column J then do the average on the values in column E and put the result in my second sheet in cell F5 then do the same but look for 2 in column J and put it in F8, then 3 in F11, ... until 7 found (the data is in ss.000 and so the results in the second sheet should be formated the same way) then do the same all over again for value in L2 etc etc etc
this should be done for the 6 values in column L, each having values up to 7 in the J column.
Then I need to do the same for other columns and not only averages but minimums as well but I can adapt the code I think.
I have an addin in a shared folder which was created by someone else. (it is a user form). I need to create a macro which will go to its existing folder and then save it in the users personal addin folder also picking up their user id. There will be about 100 users so easier this way than going round doing it for them.
So I suppose the query is three fold.
1, pick up the addin and save it in a personal addin folder. 2, Find the username as part of the path file. For instance my personal would be:
"C:Documents and SettingsO033116Application DataMicrosoftAddIns"
The "O033116" is where I will need a search completed to obtain the user id.
The addin is called ServiceCredt.xla
3, Activate the installed addin.
The reason I want it this way is so the user is unable to access any of the code and we are in control.
I have an Excel Addin that I deploy as a read-only addin on a server share. I instruct my co-workers to add the Add-In as they would any other Add-In, but I tell the to answer NO to the Windows question "Copy 'AddinName' to the Addins folder for John Doe?".
That way, everyone will be working with the server version of the addin, and any time I want to roll out an updated version I just place a new addin file on the server. The next time the users restart Excel, the new version is loaded.
Except users never follow directions and some of them click the default 'Yes' when asked and get a local copy of the addin and never receive updated versions of the addin.
How do I disable the "Copy Addin" question completely? I don't want to depend on the user. I know this is possible because I have this 3rd party addin that we use that is installed from c:Program Files and it just stays there and you're never asked to copy the addin when you install it in Excel.
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 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 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.
I've got 4 pivot tables (all derived from the same base data) on 4 separate worksheets. I've been able to (with this help of this site) to use VBA to hide pivot items on all of these sheets using a list on a user form. Hide/Show Pivot Table Field Items. Hide Pivot Table Fields Pivot Items by Criteria
I now need to be able to show all the pivot items on only 3 of the 4 pivot tables, with the 4th pivot table being left untouched. For ease assume that my sheets are sheet1, sheet2, sheet3, and sheet4. The tables I wish to update are on sheet2, sheet3 and sheet4. The pivot table on each sheet is called "PivotTable4" and the pivot item is called "Business". The pivot item contains 12 business names (Business1, Business2 etc etc)
Is there an easy way of doing this? I've spent the day looking through the internet and various "Dummies" books but with little success, I fear that I'm obviously below even Dummy level
I have an issue with printing a worksheet with a pivot table. When refreshing the table, depending on the filter choices, the table length with expand and contract. When the pivot table contracts, it leaves a light blue shaded area. If you try to print the worksheet it includes the blue section. Is there a print macro that can be written that will only print the sections with values or perhaps a print setting that would exclude the shaded area?
When I run pivot tables, the row label descriptions are only displayed at the highest level for each category. As displayed below the highest level on the row label is MOB and is only detailed in the first row. I need for each of the different row label levels to display the data so there are no blank cells.
I have four sheets with a lot of pivot tables on each and my problem is that whenever I hit Refresh the formatting of the pivot tables is always changing. It seems that this is something of an issue in Excel 2010 and that they only way to truly get around it is to re-format the pivot tables upon refresh with VBA code.
Any resource or thread I can use to learn the commands to format the pivot tables?
I am getting better with VBA code but seems to always get stuck on trying new things because I do not know the commands.
I have several pivot tables that need to be re-linked to an Access database (really change the link to a different month's data). Currently, I do this manually, but I was hoping to write a macro to do this. Data is saved by month so I can't just create a "current" file as to not change the links each time. I can only get code to work for the refresh portion.
I am working with VBA to create a pivot table, and have done just fine so far. However, I need to create a two buttons that will run the following macros: 1. A macro that will remove the selected header (either row or column) from the pivot table.
2. A macro that will put the removed header back into the pivot table.
I need to be able to click on the header (whether its the row or column header) and then press the button to remove it from the table. The second button should then add that header back into the table. My code for creating the table is fine, I just need to work out the buttons. Below is what I have so far. I was think that if I had variable for the header name it would be able to tell which header to remove (so I used Set iField = ActiveCell.Value), I also tried ActiveCell.Text. All I need to do is put the text in the selected field into the PivotFields range to make it hidden. However, I keep getting an error (Compile Error: Object Required) on the line Set iField = ActiveCell.Value. Below is my current code.
I wonder if it is possible to make calculations between two pivot tables which have the same number of columns and rows and put the outcomes in a third pivot. For example Pivot 1 contains revenue data, Pivot 2 contains cost data and Pivot 3 provides the calculated outcome of revenues minus costs.
Is it possible for me to compare two pivot tables and get a report. in the attached example, is it possible to compare sheet1 and sheet 2, if the values haven't changed, then it should be green, or it should be red.
