Create Report Using Power Pivot While Creating Relationship Between Linked Table?
Apr 24, 2014
I want to create a report using power pivot while creating the relationship between the linked tables, power pivot is throwing error "The relationship cannot be created because each cilumn contains duplicate values. Select at least one column that contains only values"
I was wondering if it is possible to create a custom pivot table report filter? I would like to take an existing pivot table report filter and manually add values into it. I would like to do this because I have multiple pivot tables, some with the same values and some with different values and I have a VBA code from Contextures that applies a mass filter to all fields with the same name. So if i could manually add values into one report filter, I could filter from one location and have all my pivot tables update at the same time if they contain the value that i would like to filter by.
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 am trying to create a macro that will create a number of check boxes, which are linked different cells. I have had some success in creating multiple check boxes and having them at the destination I want the problem is that instead of linking to different cells they are all linked to the same cell. I have attached a sample workbook SAMPLE.xlsx
I have two pivot tables on the same worksheet, tied to different tables, but both have a "date" column. When I change the date in either tables Report Filter this code does change the page field in the other one, but the data does not refresh. My primary table is PivotTable2, once I can get this working I would hide that report filter in PivotTable1.
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() Application.ScreenUpdating = False PivotMacro PivotMacro1 Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
i have a excel file which has a formatted pivot table which displays customers by country in row A 2 down to 36 with approx 36 customers in the values field i have volumes by alarms and tickets along the column labels it shows the previous 7 days with date and then the alarms and tickets in each row. My problem is i am trying to find the code or location where i can change the only bring back 7 days data to another value. i have searched all connection properties and definitions. I know there is a value somewhere that allows you to change this number to say from 7 days to 30 days. If you click on the column labels for date it shows the dates back 3+ years but it still if i tick more than 7 days only show 7 in the table.I have image if needed
I'm trying to write a macro that will create a pivot table, and am getting an Error code 1004: Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File "Sheetname". My code is below. I've tried to note what each section does, and it all seems to work well except for the Pivot Table creation.
I have linked a graph to update from a pivot table. I would like to print a copy of a graph and pivot table for each item in the page field. Can a macro loop through each page field and print?Is there a way to send them to the printer all at once? (I noticed the printer hangs when manually printing page by page)
I've tried "view all pages of pivottable" but then I lose the view of the chart. I tried recording the events but the number of items in the page field changes with each data update and I'm not sure how to write code to accept this.
I am trying to arrange data (pay by week) for regions and sites within a region. In the first Report filter, I select the site, and the second report filter gives me all of the sites - not just those in that region.... How I can either arrange my data or change my pivot, so only the appropriate sites show under the region?
I have a simple table Attached. (A simplified version of a much larger table) The data continues on for thousands of entries and there are quite a few more columns. Names are dynamic in that names will be added and deleted over time. (There is a list of names on a different worksheet that updates as users are added.)
I wish to Consolidate the Data Under Different Titles. The data in the NAME column will Consolidate to list each name in Alphabetical order. The data under the RAP COUNTER column should count the number of YES entries per NAME under the new title ATTEMPTS. The data under the RESULT column should Count the number of KILL entries under the new title KILLS. And the Data in the TG SCORE column should average all entries per NAME under the new title TOTAL SCORE. I tried to do this with a pivot table to no avail. I could write some programming to accomplish this, but I am am amateur, and I also worry about time required to run a macro for thousands of lines.
I use a specific report on a daily basis which is attached here. Is it possible that that report is generated automatically in the same sequence of rows once the data is updated in another sheet. I am not good in VBA so looking some built in function. I have tried the pivot but all the formatting and design of the report is changed. use the Template wizard with data tracking is used is the above exercise is possible. Is there any other better methord is available in excel. Is there any good web site availble to learn these things.
I have created a pivot table and I'm using report filters for both Client and Asset (obviously there are a lot more data points). When I filter on Client 1 I would expect to only see Port 1 - Port 7 available in the Asset filter however, I see every asset in the data set. I need to pick and choose using the Select Multiple Items check box without having to scroll through every single asset. Is there a way to easily do this?
So I was wondering if it were possible to completely lock a pivot table, almost like protecting the sheet, but to allow the report filter field at the top of the table to be used. So what I'm trying to show is our net rev accounts in the rows & quantity and amounts as the value all fixed and unable to move about or drill down; but then have our product titles at the top in the report filter which you can still use to be able to select specific products.
I understand that I could make a big old page of drop down lists and vlookups and sumifs etc etc, but surely the above would be way quicker, plus I wouldnt have to bother checking it all works regularly!
I'm currently running this macro, which nearly does the job, but the data and row labels are still able to be manipulated. So... changing the macro, or doing something completely different?
Sub KillPivot() Dim pf As PivotField With ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
I have a pivot table created from a data table with three columns: Date, Sales, and Customers. I have the Date column in the Report Filter and I want to change the date based upon a value in a cell range named Date, of all things. The pivot table is located in another worksheet and the range Date is changed by a spin button in the active worksheet.
My code is:
Dim pt As PivotTable Set pt = Worksheets("Pivot Tables").PivotTables("PivotTable1")
When you create a pivot table and double-click on the output of the pivot repot you access the detailed info that make up this particular number.
Is it possible to preserve the format of the raw data file that has been used to create the pivot table output?
For instance, the raw data has $. When I create the pivot table I can format the table to reflect the $. However, when I double click on the pivot table number where I have the $ I access the detail info but the format (in this case $) is lost.
I called Microsoft and told me it is a flaw in Excel. But, I'd like to check with you before I give up.
If I can't do that. I have an alternative: double click on all the numbers of the pivot table then format the sheets to include the $ and then create a hyperlink from the pivot table to the detailed report tab.
I am building a tracking process for marketing and relationship management purposes. My company has a database (Advisor's Assistant - which the server is on site) that is for lack of a better term very limited. I have tried to identify if we have the capability to use SQL in excel to pull the information we want but that avenue looks bleak, since my co-worker that is pretty tech-savvy has had very little luck working with the database provider to get to information we want.
Anyway, I have determined that I can get the information I am interested in by way of several reports that the current database will do and printing them to a .pdf file. Then by way of a program called Able to Extracted I can get them into an excel format. The problem I am trying to solve is using excel to pull the information I want out of these twice converted reports into a format that means something in excel.
Only the reports reach excel they have many empty cells and some of the information is offset and does not follow the same pattern as you scroll down through the report. I have attached part of one of the reports. I would like to automate the process of searching the data and creating a new format that I can use a pivot table to create reports off.
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'm trying to find a macro that will report how many values are returned in a pivot table. For example, if there is 5 values returned, I want it to return the value "5" in a cell If there are 10 values returned from the pivot table, I want to return the value "10" in a cell
Is it possible to set up the second level of a report filter based on the value of the first report filter. I have a pivot table that needs two report filters: first is the location and the second is the department. What I want to do is have the user be able to select the location and then only show valid departments for that location. I know that this is possible if I set up a form and have the second field be a query against the first. I can create a calculated field but I cannot put that in the report filter area.
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.?
I'm trying to use a List Box to select multiple items on my Pivot Table but I can't seem to get it to work. Its the Report Filter part of the pivot table.
When the list Box is set to fmMultiSelectSingle it work and selects the indivdual items, but I need it set as fmMultiSelectMulti for if i'm also needed to select multiple items. (which doesn't seem to work!)
Last week I posted a question related to formatting a cell to return a Day of the Week versus a numerical representation IE "Wed" instead of 02/20/2008 12:00AM. The solution provided worked for me:
1) Format cell to DDD MM/DD/YYYY HR:MN. Cell range (A1:A500) 2) Format destination cell with DDD. Cell range (B1:B500) 3) Destination cell (B1) = to original cell A1 4) B1 displayed data as "Wed"
However, the issue I still have is; I wanted to create a pivot table summarizing a year activity by Day of Week (in other words 7 entries for the year) and the pivot table still recognized all the MM/DD/YYYY. I ended up with a table displaying every day of the year instead of a yearly summary by Day of Week. Is there some way to strip out all the other numerical data from the new column I created to run a pivot table by Day of the Week for a whole years activity?
I have a pivot table that I created and now I want to use the same pivot cache to create another pivot table instance on a different worksheet. how can I do that? My first worksheet gets saved as "OO By buyer" and now I want to create a new worksheet and drop the next pivot there.
1) Data - the students are listed in Column A, math scores in Column B, reading scores in Column C and science scores in Column D. The grades of 300 students are entered in this sheet.
Student Math Reading Science
Jimmy 75 84 100
2) Report Card template - This is the report card that needs to be generated for each student. It's pulling the student name and grades from the Data worksheet.
Student Name =Data!$A2
How do I create worksheets (report cards) for additional students? I have 300 students in the school. I need the next worksheet to reference Data!$A3. I know how to cut and paste the report card template and then edit =Data!A2 to be =Data!A3 to create a report card for Sally. How do I create the 300 report cards I need?
I've been teaching for 13 years. I can create a report card for each student in my class and edit each worksheet individually for each student. Now I've been asked to do this for the whole school and I don't know how to create the other 299 sheets I need.
