Generate Items In Second Table Without Having To Enter Manually

Jul 15, 2013

How to use I have these two tables, like the picture shows.

How to get the "food" items to generate in the second table without having to enter them manually?

For example, if I were to enter 3 food items out of 10 entries, on the second table, those food items would appear.

Manually Enter % And Update Price (Formula)

Jun 9, 2009

I'd like to be able to add 10% to column D and have the prices in A, B, C change accordingly. Is there a formula for this?

A B C D
2009 Distributor CASE Price2010 Distributor CASE Price2010 Distributor EACH PriceVariance from 2009 price135.00148.000.0592108.25100.000.040062.8875.006.250066.6096.008.0000

PS: Right now I have it set up working the opposite way, the prices are entered and my formula tells the user by what % the price has changed. The user wants to be able to tell the formula what % is desired and have the prices change accordingly.

The formula I am using for the way column currently calculates is:
=IF((G2=0),"",(((G2-F2)/F2)*1))

A Column Of Cells Where Manually Enter In A Date

Jan 4, 2010

I have a sheet where I have a column of cells where I manually enter in a date. the format is d-mmm-yy. Before the end of the year rolled around I was able to enter in say only 12-31 and it would automatically change that to 12-dec-09, now when I do that it spits out 12-dec-10. It's not a big deal to type in the extra -09 to get it right but was wondering if there was a quick/easy fix to get it to know that I don't want a date in the future?

All dates I type in will be in the recent past...never more than 3 months or so old and never later than today's date.

How To Allow Both Picklist Items And Manually Entered Data In A Cell

May 27, 2014

I have been using Excel for several years and I'm fairly proficient at its basic functionality. I've recently learned and made extensive use of pivot tables. However, I have not taken advantage of such features as Data Validation, VBA, etc.

Single Cell Value From Either Dropdown List Or Enter Manually Depending On Selection

Jun 22, 2014

I have a cell in my spreadsheet that I use to control the size of a column. I formatted the cell as a number and added data validation to make sure the number is greater than zero. Then I realized that I need to also allow for the option of auto sizing the column as well. This would require a data validation list type with something like True and False for the choices.

What I want to be able to do is have it both ways. I want a drop down list in that cell with the options Auto Size or Custom. If Auto Size is selected the cell value gets set to that. If Custom is selected I then want to be able to type in a number.

Is there a way to setup a cell such that the value is either an item from the drop down list or, entered directly (depending on the list selection)?

I know I can do it with dependent lists but that would require two cells, one for the auto size mode (true/false) and the other for manual width value.

Column Of Dates Not Recognized Unless Manually Select Each Cell And Press Enter

Apr 12, 2013

I have a column of dates that are not being recognized as dates unless if I manually select each cell and press enter. For example the cell value is "Jul/13' and isn't recognized as "01/06/2013" until I select it and hit enter. How can I get around this?

Cell To Generate The Sum Of The QUANTITY Of Items From Multiple Cells

Mar 21, 2014

I'd like to generate a total sum based on the quantity from each item. So columns H3 - N3 should generate a total in P3 (skipped O) by the quantity entered in each cell. In addition I'd like the value of D3 to change the pricing in the formula. D3 has a drop down with 3 products, so selecting ANY of those products should cancel out the previous formula and replace it with another.

This is the sum without a value in D3
=SUM(H3*10.00)+(I3*8.00)+(J3*6.00)+(K3*18.00)+(L3*10.00)+(M3*8.00)+(N3*8.00)
IF D3 has a package selected from the drop down, I'd like this sum to generate instead.
=SUM(H3*8.00)+(I3*6.00)+(J3*4.00)+(K3*15.00)+(L3*8.00)+(M3*6.00)+(N3*6.00)

Identify Duplicate Lines Items And Generate Report.

Mar 11, 2009

I have a report with ~44,000 line items. From this report, I need assistance generating a report that lists all unique line items. I am having problems trying to identify which line items are duplicates as I need to compare 4 different cells in each line to other lines to determine if it is a duplicate item (compare data from columns A, B, E, F)

For example, raw data may be as follows:
Column A………Column B…….Column E…………….....Column F
10/13/2008…….11111111…….71879W561000……….888.88
10/13/2008…….22222222…….239103302000………..222.22
10/13/2008…….11111111…….71879W561000……….888.88
10/13/2008…….33333333…….353496508000………..333.33
10/13/2008…….44444444…….239103302000………..444.44
10/13/2008…….11111111…….71879W561000……….888.88
10/13/2008 ……11111111…….353496508000………..888.88............................

Note from above, there are two occurrences of a duplicate item. As a result, the output table would only list this item once.

I have attached a sample of the spreadsheet with dummy data on one tab and the desired output on another tab. Note that all the data is broken up into blocks of data that is separated by data that is only in the first column of the row.

Manually Adding Formulas To Pivot Table

May 22, 2014

I've created a pivot table as shown in the attached image - I've had to hide most of the data but I'm not sure how confidential it is so thought I should play it safe.

excelforum.JPG

In between the Job Board Applications column and the Registrations column I want to have a Cost Per Application column.

In this fake example, the company that I've called 'Excel Forum' (imaginative I know) pay \$1000 per month for their email marketing, so the cost per application from email would be 1000/1150 = \$0.87.

Is there a way to insert a column in a pivot table that you can manually add formulas to?

I've tried replicating the pivot table underneath using cell=B6 etc. and the GETPIVOTDATA function then hiding the whole pivot table apart from the filters, but because there are a different number of subcategories every month the cell references don't work when the filter is changed.

I also tried to add a calculated field but this didn't seem to be what I wanted.

As a last resort I can add the cost per application manually to the raw data and include it as a column when making the pivot table, but this would be an ENORMOUS job to do every month so I'm in need of a better solution!

Manually Sorting Pivot Table Row Labels

Sep 18, 2009

Optionally, to customize the sort operation, on the Options tab, in the Sort group, click Sort. In the Sort <Field name> dialog box, select the type of sort that you want by doing one of the following:

To return items to their original order, click Data source order. This option is only available for OLAP source data. To drag and arrange items the way that you want, click Manual.To select a field to sort by in ascending sort order, select Ascending (A to Z) by, and then select the field from the drop-down list. To select a field to sort by in descending sort order, select Descending (A to Z) by, and then select the field from the drop-down list. Tip Read the Summary section at the bottom of the dialog box to verify your choices.

My problem is this: after following the above steps, then clicking Manual, then ok, I cannot drag and arrange the row labels in the PivotTable.

How To Generate Dropdown List With Data Which Uses Column To Identify Items

Apr 18, 2014

I have in column A and B. A includes two (or may be more) kind of items, i.e. drink and snack. Column B has for example water next to drink and chips next to snack. The list is huge.

How can I generate a drop down list with data which uses the A column to identify the items which it should include. I want to make two separate drop down lists for drink and snack and each should include only those options which belong to those categories. I.e. drink list should be like water, cola, pepsi, etc. The problem is that the list is huge and it's not possible to sort it. Some kind of if statement structure with named range? The drop down should be dynamic in a sense that if I add line to data, it should be picked to the right drop down menu.

Excel 2010 :: Keeping Manually Entered Table Data Associated With Correct Row?

Jan 14, 2014

I have a table created in Excel 2010 by a SQL query. the query pulls 3 columns of data - Resource Name, Contract Company, Labor Category. I then add a column called "KEY". KEY is derived using VLOOKUP. VLOOKUP is matching the Contract Company from the table created with SQL to a table called "Rate Key" in another worksheet in the spreadsheet based on the matching the Contract Company. That all works fine. If the table changes due to changes in data coming from the SQL db, the column I've added using VLOOKUP recalculates correctly. Then I add 2 more columns. One is called RATE - which is a number that I manually type in. The last column is called RCode and is calculated by the RATE times the KEY. Whenever I refresh the SQL query, all of the the calculated rows work fine; however, the data in the RATE column that I manually enter does not move - it stays with the row regardless of whether or not the name changes when the new SQL data comes over. How do I get the values manually entered in the RATE column to move with the correct row when the rows change?

Generate Weekly Reports From Table

Oct 2, 2007

I would like to create one page (sort of like a form) to use to collect specific weekly payroll related data for multiple employees and be able to automatically transfer that data to its own weekly data page based on the week date, and then also automatically post specific data to each individual employees' total pages. While I am self taught and comfortable with formulas I do not yet have a lot of experience with VBA and am just now recognizing and exploring the true power of Excel so I don't always yet see the best way to accomplish my goal.

My current way of doing this is to reuse the same form page. I plug in the data for each employee that week, it calculates, I print it out, and then I manually update each employee's total page for that date. As I do this I lose the previous week's details. I would like to retain a page for each week's details in addition to having each employee's total pages. Is this possible or is there a better way to accomplish my task?

Generate Table With Internal And External Data?

May 23, 2014

I have a workbook that need to call for external data (this is information from January till May) from another workbook to manage it. I get this external data as a Tabla_A that needs to be updated continually because the extenal workbooks is adding information constantly. However, now i have to incorporate a specific range of old information (information of December, 2013) before the external data in the same Table_A. This last information wont ever change and needs to be incorporated to analize de information from December till Now.

The problem is when I insert the December information as new arrows at the beginning of Table_A, later I update the table and this old data is remplaced automatic by the external Data range. For that reason, I'm wondering to know if there is some way to have one Table_A with a static range of arrows (december) and another range of arrows (January onwards) that is updatable.

Generate Text File From Data Table

Auto Generate Table For Scatter Graph

Oct 31, 2006

after spending hours searching the forum, I begin to seriously doubt my ability to even formulate a suitable search question. My problem SHOULD be a known one, but I am unable to find any clues. Here we go:

I have made a pretty stright-forward forecasting model. It is used to calculate economics of a coal fuelled power plant (even though that shouldn't matter). The outcome is, among other things, a single number for Profit / MWh in Euros. There are several input data, such as fuel price, price for CO2 emission rights, operational expenditure, capex, etc.

My idea, then, is to lock all in-data parameters except ONE, then let this variable vary incrementally and then produce a new small table with a) the variable data (example: price for CO2 rights ranging from 10 to 50 Euro in 2 euro steps), and b) the resulting net profit in each case. Ideally, I wish to be able to chose which indata to lock and which to vary, i.e. solution need to have certain flexibility.

NB: The calculations are not that simple, i.e. I cannot use a simple formula - I need to use the exising output cell(s) to feed data.

How do I do this?

The outcome should be basically two rows with a suitable number of columns (or the other way around, two columns in X number of rows). The table will then be used to produce illustrative graphs.

I guess I could hard code a table by simply enter data, but heck, that's not the way to use Excel!

Generate Table On Another Sheet Depending On Input Data?

Apr 15, 2014

I am tracking business hours of various business locations. I would like to be able to enter the businesses operating hours on the "overview sheet" and, based on those hours, have a table generated on another sheet that "autofills" based on the date entered on the "overview sheet". For example:

I would enter the operating hours of the business on the "overview sheet" and it would look something like this:

Day
Open
Close

[Code]....

I want a table for each day created. I would then manually enter the data for the "Ranking" column. The issue is that I have numerous location I want to do this for and all with varying hours of operation. It is very tedious to manually create the tables.

Code To Generate Data Table Based On Variables

Aug 26, 2008

I was trying to use the VBA code to generate a data table:

Private Sub createDataTable(WS As Worksheet, initialRow As Integer, numCol As Integer, numRows As Integer)
Dim initialCell As Range 'specify the upper left cell
Dim RefCell As Range 'the reference cell on the caculator sheet

'activate source sheet
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Calculator").Activate
Set RefCell = ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 3)
WS.Activate
Set initialCell = ActiveSheet.Cells(initialRow, 1)
initialCell.offset(numRows, numCol).Select
Selection.Table ColumnInput:=RefCell
'the calculation should be automatic, if not, then calculate
WS.Calculate
End Sub

and it kept giving me an input celll not valid error on this line: Selection.Table ColumnInput:=RefCell the thing is, I have defined RefCell as a range object, so it should be OK rite?

Use Mail Merge From Table To Generate Data In Line Graph?

Jun 25, 2009

I want to generate a letter to parents that shares reading fluency data from an excel spreadsheet into a table and a chart. I got the info to post into cells in the table through mail merge. (sample below) Now I want to make a matching line chart to visually show the student's growth over time. I want the data on the chart to change according to the data I put in the cells in the table through mail merge. Is this possible?The data in the cell that says "Cory" and the "88, 100, 112" are placed in this table through mail merge. I want to now be able to take just Cory's information and display it as a line graph. If I highlight those cells and choose "insert a table" it doesn't work.

Macro To Generate A Line Graph With Coloured Pointers And Lables Based On Table

Sep 30, 2009

column A = Date : 01/02, 07/02, 14/02, 21/02, 28/02 (x-axis : shows when the table is updated)
column B = project: x, x, x, x, ,x (name of the project and trend line)
column C = Delivery Date : 01/05/2009, 08/05/2009, 20/05/2009, 30/05/2009, 28/02/2009 (plotted on the graph)
column D = Status : Green, Amber, Red, Green, Blue (status of the project. the points should be the same colour as is described in the table)
column E = Comments: original, delay, supply, out of money, on track, delivered-wow! (these comments will pop up if the user holds the cursor over a point)

NB Y-axis scale : 01/01/2009 to 31/12/2009 with increments of 14 days. this will be the same scale used for all projects.

Date Project Delivery Date Status Comments
01/02 x 01/05/2009 Green original date
07/02 x 08/05/2009 Amber delay supply
14/02 x 20/05/2009 Red out of money
21/02 x 30/05/2009 Green on track
28/02 x 28/02/2009 Blue delivered-wow

So id like the macro to draw the line for project x based on the 'delivery date'. The points should be coloured according to the 'status' column and when you hover the mouse over the point the data lable will show up taking info from the 'comments' column.

Would it be possible to create a macro that will be able to generate this graph automatically. I have a few projects id like to do the same thing for.

Pivot Table Layout - Generate List Of Unique Names And Their Associated Phone Numbers

Mar 18, 2013

I've read a lot of tutorials on how to use pivot tables, but found them either too basic, or too advanced, and never finding any example of what I am looking to do.

I have a database, column A holds names, and column B their phone numbers. I'd like to generate a list of unique names and their associated telephone numbers. I figure I can use a pivot table to do this.

But I do not quite understand how to format the pivot table to put the name in one column and the phone number in the next. I will use this pivot table as a vlookup range. I assume I can do this.

Looking Up Items In Price Table

May 9, 2014

I have a price table with about 70,000 line items (some lines are duplicates).

There are about 12 columns each with different qualities such as item name, size, thickness, price and etc.

I've been building this table in excel and just importing it into Access for the time being.

When a customer sends me an order, I'd like to be able to look up the items in my price table (matching across multiple columns) and automatically return the price for each item.

So far, I've been using the following formula....

=LOOKUP(2,1/(\$A\$1:\$A\$60000=D1),\$B\$1:\$B\$60000)

With A5:A60000 = price list concatenate so all columns in 1
D1 = item I'm searching for
B1:B60000 = prices for items

The only thing is that this is very labor intensive.

The only thing is my customers will typically submit an order and it is NOT in the same format as I need it to be.

So it's very labor intensive and I spend hours just editing their order in a spreadsheet so that it follows the format I need it to.

Too Many Items For Pivot Table

Jul 25, 2008

I have a database table with selling prices. I want to get a count of number of customers by sales price range.

For example:

Price Count
\$0-\$5 #
\$5-\$10 #
\$10-\$15 #
Total

My nose says this is what a pivot table should do but there are too many sales prices and the pivot table craps out. How do I get them into ranges as above and then count them?

Enter Formula Using Two Summarized Values Within Pivot Table?

Jan 28, 2014

Is it possible to enter a formula using two summarized values within a pivot table?

For example, if the original column was "X" and within the pivot table i'm using "Sum of X" and then another for "Average of Y".

Can I then divide "Sum of X" by "Average of Y" or any other similar calculations between 2 summarized fields?
