Macro To Make Pivot Table Won't Work Twice

Aug 14, 2008

Our system can create an SLK file showing customer open orders. It is ALWAYS in the exact same format. I created a macro to open this file, manipulate the data (convert text to numbers, convert text date to actual date, and a few other things) and then make a pivot table.

When I try to run it it gets hung up on the pivot table and the debug highlights the BOLD below:

ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
"SOLIST!C6:C12").CreatePivotTable TableDestination:="", TableName:= _
"PivotTable1", DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion10
ActiveSheet.PivotTableWizard TableDestination:=ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1)
ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1).Select

The RowField, ColumnField, and Page Fields are correct.

The QTY is the data that goes in the field.

Convert Layout Of Excel Table To Make It Suitable For Pivot Table

Mar 27, 2012

I have a very large excel data file, which I want to analyse using pivot tables. The problem is that while most of the columns are headed with the variable name (e.g. country) and have the list of variables displayed under that heading for each observation (e.g. Italy), the years are spread across the columns - i.e. the heading for column X is not "Year", but is 2003, with the next column being 2004, etc.

Is there a quick way I can re-arrange the data so that the layout is consistent and so that I can use it for pivot tables? I have way too many observations to do this by hand.

Make Multiple Name Show Up Only Once In Pivot Table?

Mar 27, 2009

In the attached file (xlsx) under 'Database' Tab poeple have indicated their preferences (multiple choices) for different food items "specialties". The specialties are grouped under broader buckets called "groups". The specialties are bucketed into groups in a way that people end up more than once in each specialties and groups due to their muliple selections. When we create a pivot by specialties (Pivot Specialties tab), each person appears only once for each's great. But, when we create a "group" pivot (each group has multiple specialties), now, people appear more than once for each group. Is there a way, each person can show up only once under each group so the group count does not appear to be misleading?

Pivot Table And VLookup To Make Graph?

Feb 25, 2012

This is how my pivot table would look like to start. Over time I would refresh and more things will be added. I want to make a Pie chart, and everytime I refresh the Pivot I want the Pie to get updated.


BUT I want to do this on a separate tab. So basically I want to do a Vlookup of sorts. Where all the Fruit items are pulled and automatically updated when I refresh the Pivot. Then I would do the same for Veggies.

Make A Pivot Table In 2003 Based On This Query

Mar 16, 2009

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.

Figure Out How The Best Setup Could Be Done To Make This Easier For Pivot Table Analysis

Jan 10, 2010

I am tasked with putting together an Excel Spreadsheet to analyze our accounts. There are over 80 items for the accounts - about 20 Income and about 60 expenses. These are for various years - actually the last 5 years - by months.

So, I am trying to figure out how the best setup could be done to make this easier for pivot table analysis.

So I have 12 "rows" for each account item for each year.

Maybe I should wait for comments and/or questions before going further.

Just need to figure out how to set up the workbook/worksheet.

Make A "pivot Table" Of Sorts

May 11, 2008

I've been trying to make a "pivot table" of sorts, but I'm having trouble because I need to have a few columns - I wanted to have a "planets" column, then a "Weight" column and a "mass on planet", so that when a weight is entered the "mass on planet" comes up
I've worked out how to use the drop down list so only one planet comes up at a time, but I still can't work out why I can't have three columns - it just doesn't let me make an empty column that can be filled out.
Step-by-step instructions would be GREATLY appreciated as this is my first attempt at excel.

On another note I have a task to use excel "creatively", any ideas? I need to put in graphs, is it maybe possible to also put in GIF's?

MACRO: Make A Table Of Calculated Values

Apr 19, 2006

I have made spreadsheet that calculates my total cost of making ice cream mix based on ingredient costs of two variables (Van_Gal, and Choc_Gal), for example 550 gallons and 750 gallons respectively. The worksheet calculates the total cost of making the Vanilla Gallons and the Chocolate Gallons. Im not a VBA or Macro wiz, and now Id like to Make a macro that will allow me to make a table of calculated costs associated with different assumed Vani_Gal and Choc_Gal amounts and then print the values; and then go down a row and print the cost of another amount of Vani_Gal and Choc_Gals until some preset end has been reached. For example:

Van_Gal; Choc_Gal;TOTOutput;avg cost
550; 750; 1300; $4,000.00; $3.08
600; 700; 1300; $4,250.00; $3.27

Lets say that I want to know what the tot cost and avg cost per gallon for various combinations of Vanilla and Chocolate Mix from 550 V and 750 Choc for various combos and have it increase in iterations of 10 Gallons (i.e. 560 Van and 740 Choc); Maybe I'd use a " loop" that repeats calculations and prints them for different combinations of Van/choc until 800 Gals Van and 500 gal Choc. Once I have a table of values, I could sort it and find an optimal production level (with the Minimum avg cost). how to make a macro that can crank out a table like this?

Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table Reference Is Not Valid When Moving Data And Pivot Table Together?

Mar 19, 2013

On a worksheet, I created:

- a list of data
- a pivottable based on these data

When moving this worksheet this worksheet to another workbook, the pivot table can't refresh anymore. This throws an error message "Reference is not valid". To work around this problem I need to adapt the datasource. The same occurs if the list and the pivot table are on separate sheet, with the added strange behaviour that, when data an PT are split, it is not possible to move both sheet together.

This would not be a big issue if my problem had to be solved manually. The real problem is that I need to move the sheets from a C# program.

Using Macro To Import Two Identical CSV Text Files To Make 1 Table Of Data

Apr 4, 2014

I'm having difficulty trying to get the second file appended to the bottom of the 1st imported file. I get "run-time error '13' type mismatch". There is no difference between the two files. I'm thinking there is a problem with my range statement in the second file import, but this range works fine in other macros. Here's my code so far:

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
"TEXT;\server1usersmydataIMPORT1.CSV", Destination _
.Name = "IMPORT1"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False

Split Up Huge Macro Using Call Macro But Pivot Table Code Errors Out?

Jul 10, 2012

I'm using a CALL Macro to split up a HUGE macro into different pieces:

'Macro recorded 12/14/2010 by Ryan R. Koleno, Pharm.D.
'Last Updated 7/10/12 by Ryan R. Koleno, Pharm.D.
'Do Not Modify Code Unless Given Proper Privileges to do so.
Dim APPSPD As Worksheet
With Application
.ScreenUpdating = False
.Calculation = xlCalculationManual


The first few macros dealing with page setup and what not work fine but when it hits the Pivot table code for the STATSPIVOT macro it errors out stating: "Run-time error '1004': Unable to get the PivotItems property of PivotField class' at this point in the code:

objField2.PivotItems( _
"TRC").Position = 1
objField.PivotItems( _
"MEDCO MAIL OR AOB").Position = 2

When this macro is not split up it worked fine as written. Am I overlooking something in the Call Macro's code or is there a variable I'm not aware of. I have included the Pivot Table code that errors out as well.

Sheets("STATS DATA").Select
Dim objTable As PivotTable, objField As PivotField
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("STATS DATA").Select

VBA - Adjust Pivot Table Included Fields To Match Another Pivot Table

Mar 14, 2013

I have a worksheet with two pivot tables, one of which is visible to the user. Ideally, the user should be able to change the "Row Label" field settings of the visible pivot table and then press an "update button" that then adds the same field to the second pivot table.

Ideally, the ordering of the fields should also be made similar between the two tables, though this is of less priority.

I imagine it would be something in the style of:

"If number of Pivot1 active row label fields = X then
Pivot 2.AddRowLabelField = Pivot1.RowLabelField(X)
end if"

Macro For Dynamic Pivot Table

Jun 23, 2014

I am trying to make a dynamic pivot table using VBA. Unfortunately, Im not very good.I have a set of data with variable number of rows and variable number of columns and I need to make a pivot table. Need to select this data from sheet - Master, where the first data entry starts in cell A1. of the data in the sheet, i only need the name and age title In the pivot table fields -

ROWS needs to contain - name
COLUMN needs to contain - Age
Values need to contain - count of Age

After this is done, since the data will be dynamic, the pivot table will also be dynamic. i need to copy the pivot table data and paste it in another sheet so that I can do some filtering. The filtering part I think i can do my self.

VLOOKUP Against Pivot Table In Macro

Sep 19, 2007

one part requires a pivot table to split two seperate pieces of data. the macro is running fine until this point when i get the AddFields method error (run time 1004). the Visual Basic error is as follows:

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").AddFields RowFields:="Employee", _
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Lab Hrs")
.Orientation = xlDataField
.Caption = "Sum of Lab Hrs"
.Function = xlSum
End With
ActiveWorkbook.ShowPivotTableFieldList = False
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-6
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll ToRight:=4
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Int Lab Hrs"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-25],Sheet1!C[-26]:C[-24],3,FALSE)"

is this basically a write off or can anything be salvaged to make it run correctly. the pivot table will always use the same columns etc. every month it is run.

Macro To Run Vlookups On Pivot Table Results

Jul 14, 2014

I'm trying to write a macro that will look up information about clients that result from a pivot table. Depending on what two inputs are put into the pivot table (coverage, existing or target company) the client names that the vlookup needs to reference will change.

The vlookup information for each client would paste into a different cell on another worksheet, and change depending on which clients came up in the pivot table. So the macro would need to look up clients from a specified range that the pivot table is in.

Pivot Table Or Macro For Stock Layout

Jul 22, 2007

I have an excel file, attached. I have a system that output all the stock in the format of sheet "price listing".

At the moment I manually create the layout for the text in "sheet 1" and use a macro to update prices etc. There are about 400 lines in the full listing and having to update the layout constantly for new products, deleted products is very time consuming. I send this list to customers every few months for them to see the range and the prices, so it has to look well.

I am looking for a macro or a pivot chart or something that I would be able to run on the "price listing" sheet and would put it in some usable format. Different customers can have different prices so that it needs to be quick and flexible. I send this list to customers every month for them to see the range and the prices, so it has to look well. Is there any way to create an index also from an excel workbook?

Macro To Extract Tickers / Pivot Table

Oct 2, 2009

I need to manipulate some data in order to make it reasonable. I'm reading up on Macro's now in order to be able to do this stuff in the future, but I think macro's are a long term thing.

Actually before I go into that, is there any book one can recommend for macro's? I do have a friend's books, How to Do Everything with MS Office Excel 2003, MS Excel Bible 2003, and MS Office - Excel 2003 Formulas. Are these good or any other recommendations? In particular I would like some data to play around w/ so that when in the book they tel me to do something I actually have some data to manipulate. I imagine learning the basics of macro's will be easy enough, but as I understand it the real power of macro's comes from programming in VB, and I dont see how that can be covered in these books.

Now for the more specific questions -

My raw data looks like the attached excel file called Raw Data, I want it to end up as the other attached excel file called Result. How would I create a macro to read where the ticker begins and ends? Is there any way to do it w/o VB knowledge?

Raw Data:

Resulting Data:

More importantly, I want to be able to order the tickers by how many times they've been mentioned. For example in the second excel file called Result, Laura has been mentioned twice as often as anyone else. When I sort this list I want to sort by who's been mentioned the most. So I'd like to see 6 lines of her data, followed by the person mentioned the second most (if they had 5 lines, the next 5 should be them etc). For this one would pivot tables do the job, or do I need macro's for this as well?
