What would cause a pivot table to turn numerical data into a letter?
I have a field, cost center, that has about 15 different possible values in it that look like this: 141350, 141360, 141370, 141380, etc. When I compile the data into a pivot table and try to sort on pivot table everything looks normal, except that 141350 is returned as 'R'. If I change the value to anything else, it is fine, but as 141350 it's changes from numerical formating to a single letter.
I'm sure something was accidentally set to do that automatically.
ok lets say you have thousands of rows of raw data and you are running vlookups to pull specific data from the raw data to update your spreadsheet. Your raw data consist of some new ideas so when you vlook up, you get an error. In my case i get about 50 errors all spaced out amoung the thousands of rows or raw data. I would like to create a formula that would go and find the error and output a code/value that already exist in the raw data and output that in Cell D1 for example. The it will go and find the second error and output that into cell D2 and then the third error and output that into D3 and so on.....
The idea is that when its done a list of all the errors will have been created so then i can use other formulas to simple add the new info to the workbook. Instead of search through thousands of rows for the errow.
I have a workbook which is set up to take an average heart rate of a participant from a series of data points. I have set the spreadsheet up before I have collected some of the data. (so I can review the project at the 3 months period and its an ongoing project).
The problem is that if there is no data in a participants column then excel correctly gives you readout of “#DIV//0!”. On my results page this #DIV//0!” makes it hard to read the spreadsheet. Is it possible to get excel to turn #DIV//0!” to “0” or even turn it to a blank cell?
I have a set of accounts (general ledger accounts) that the accounting group posts expenses to. every once in awhile a new account is added. This is captured through a pivot that i have built (sheet A).
on another sheet (sheetB) i want to display the accounts that are shown in the pivot so that i can forecast their future activity.
What i am trying to figure out is how can i make the list on Sheet B change when new accounts are added to the pivot on Sheet A (without simply referencing the pivot table making one cell equal the other)? I am not looking for a data validation pull down, i want a full list of the accounts.
I have a large table that gives me the intersection points of many lines. I have used conditional formatting to highlight the intersection points that match by turning the text red, thus showing me when 3 or more lines intersect. Manually scanning the whole table is inefficient as I wish to expand it.
Due to size limitations, I've uploaded a shortened version of the workbook, just a copy with one example of a match.
How do I get excel to locate the matches (currently highlighted with red text) and list them in column I "Intersections" all neatly sorted?
I thought Advanced Autofilter but I don't think the criteria range can search for red text alone.
I have data in a list of sales people and dates of their sales calls. What I want to do is transform the list into a table as shown in the attachment. Then I want to calculate the number of days between the first and last sales call. This part is easy using date formatting and min/max I guess. What I can't do is get the table arranged. I have used a pivot table to count the number of calls per sales person but pivot table wont just display the dates in a table format, it will only sum or count etc.
I am wanting to manage my inventory and need to convert spread sheets with tables specifying style, size color to lists with skus specifying style, size color. please see attached spread sheet with one sheet with table and second sheet with list.
I'm trying to create a Pivot table with various columns comparing information of executives from various Private Equity Firms. Some of the additional columns are Industry Specialty, Harvard Grad Year, My companies contact, etc . . .
The goal is to allow me to then query this information so if I wanted to see all Bain Capital employees who graduated with an MBA in 1990 and their specialty.
My question comes in trying to set up my source list for the data under Industry Specialty and my companies Contact. Is there a way I can set a value for these cells and mark them as an "AND" in the source if there are multiple contacts or industries that one of the Private equity executives is linked too, that would then allow them to be displayed as so when I create the pivot table?
I'm trying to create what is essentially a report card for our staff. I have all the data in a pivot table and then I am using 'GETPIVOTDATA's in the report template to extract the information, linking the sheets via a cell that contains the staff members name. Easy enough. However for reasons of efficiency and practicality I would like to be able to select the names from a drop down list on the sheet rather than having to type it in manually or maintaining a separate sheet for everyone. The operators will change from month to month and there are approximately 90 staff at any given point in time that will need to be reported on so it really needs to be sourced from the pivot data.
I'm trying to create a automated calculator that i can customize and adjust. start and what functions should i be using. I've looked into Vlookup/Hlookup and it does not seem the function i need to make the workbook work. Basically what I need is when I enter a item on the A column excel would retrieve the list of Ingredients to the calculator worksheet and multiply it by the amount of variable entered. Then product will be printed and added together to the "sum row".
I need a two parameters table deriving data from a list in another sheet. The vertical column of the two parameters table will be the names of the personnel, and the horizontal one will be the dates, in weeks form. The list contains the names, flight departure, flight arrival and no. of working days spent in the foreign country. What I need to do is to tranferr the data from that list onto the table.
For eg, if john flew overseas on 20-Dec to 15-Jan, the list will show john on column A, 20-Dec in column B, 15-Jan in column C and 20 working days on column D.
This list of personnel and their data should go into the two parameters table, where it will be identified when the personnel will be overseas according to the calendar of the project. Since the vertical heading is the dates of every week, a date that corresponds to period where the personnel is overseas will reflect a number in the cell. The number will be the number of working days the personnel spent on the foreign country, therefore the max will be a 5 and minimum is a 0. I need a formula that will fill every cell within the area of the tables.
I am trying to do is create a list from a large table (see attached). I have 2 columns (A and B) listing 'Asset' and 'Area' and then 2 rows (1 and 2) listing 'type of task' and 'task'. This forms a table with entries in the cells (from C3 onwards) denoting frequency of each task at each location, i.e. daily, monthly, 6 monthly and annual. This gives me quite a large table which is quite confusing. Can I create a formula to sort all the daily activities which will give me a list of the 4 corresponding properties 'country', 'location' (in columns A and B) and 'type of task', 'task' (in Rows 1 and 2)? Then do the same for the different frequencies populated in the table, 'monthly', '6 monthly' and 'annual' ???

I need to ignore the Totals column and row, The table can grow or reduce the assets and grow the days of the month, starting again at the begining of each month. I have to run a report each day of the month.
Is there any lock/security option in excel sheets, suppose we make some table/list and after entering one data when the cursor goes to second raw, the previous raw data automatically lock. the user cannot edit or delete that record.
I have a list of location names that may be repeated within the list. I also have possible blank cells within the list. I would like to filter them automatically into another table without having to use the autofilter or any macros to keep things simple.
How could i do this by removing blank cells in the new table and having only uniquely listed names ie get rid of any duplicates.
I am copying info from a program into the "Input" worksheet - It is from my phone switch of logins and logouts of my employees. I have 11 supervisors and my end goal is to have each one of their coordinators show up in their specific tab automatically with all of their login information, ids, logins, and logouts. I can do the other math for the Marks and break lengths but I am having a hard time with this. I have been trying vlookup, but cannot figure out a way to bring all of the different rows... It only brings over one row.
I have tried to use some of the code from other posts on this sight, but have not had any luck.
What I am looking for it to do is on the Alis worksheet - the light blue sections. I am also finding it difficult in the light purple section also. I am trying to figure out how much time they were on the clock.
Originally I considered posting in the Excel / Email area but I know how to automate the email part of this already once I get the data collection I'm looking for. Let me explain. I have a pivot table that consists of reps, accounts, items, and sales data in that order.
For each rep I want to create an email of affected accounts and items with thier respective sales data. Because each rep has a variable number of lines I'm having trouble defining the exact range. I've used a few pieces of code taken from various posts from this forum to start me off but nothing seems to be working, else I'd post what I already have.
basically i have a macro to filter a lot of data based on peoples names but the people keep changing so I dont want to go into VBA each time to update the name list int he macro.I've created a list of names in a sheet in excel but not sure how to point the macro to filtering by that instead, heres what I have:
