I have a birthday list with name, client, birthday. I want to create a pivot table that groups by month. Report layout is tabular. Then within that month, name, client & birthday (in date order). So my end result would look like;
January Jim Jones Company 1/4 Then rest of January names 1/15
Right now, I can't get the birthday to sort by date within the month.
I am having the hardest time trying to get my pivot table to sort right. I downloaded data over a 7 year period and its sorted by months (January-2005 etc). The issue I am having is excel is putting it into this format
January-2005 January- 2006 ......... February - 2005 February-2005.
I need it to sort chronologically
jan 2005, Feb 2005, March 2005...... Jan 2006, Feb 2006 etc.
What do I have to do to get this fixed. I would rather do not have to do it manually each time I need this type of data.
I have attache a file to use as a reference, the real file is over 10 000 rows long. What I need is to be able to quickly make a summary of each company within a certain period (let's say monthly) and be able to calculate the sub total of the GST column. Every report that's created than needs to be saved and put into a seperate file e.g 'TFQ Sep 07'. I understand I need to use a Pivot Table but can some one just give me quick example of how I would do this?
I am stuck trying to sort data that looks like the following, into a format that I can use as source data for pivot tables/charts.

I will need to group Data multiple ways. However, I cant work out a good way to sort it. Can I have a suggestion on layout that I will be able to arrange data appropriately.
I have a pivot table with multiple row fields and multiple column fields. One of the column fields is a Date and I need some VBA that will auto-sort the columns into ascending order by the Date column field.
E.g., if the first four column labels are "2-Jun-2010, 13-May-2009, 16-May-2013, 17-May-2012" then i want the sort to arrange them as "13-May-2009, 2-Jun-2010, 17-May-2012, 16-May-2013".
Note: This is the left to right order of the columns i'm talking about, not the top to bottom order of the rows, or the data in the rows but specifically the column labels.
I've tried googling a solution and I can find a variety of code that deals with sorting the data in the rows in all sorts of ways, but nothing on how to order the columns.
i'm using excel 07, and the source data for the pivot table has the Date field formatted as custom "dd-mmm-yyyy". This can be changed if necessary.
I have a dataset where the dates are in the following format:
19970803 = 3rd August 1997 (YYYYMMDD)
My aim is to sort the data into months and into 'turn of the month' periods.
-Is there a way to isolate rows using a search term like "****08**" for all the august entries? -Likewise if i want data between 27th-3rd for every month is there a way to sort for entries between "******27 - *******03".
Hello, I have a question about sorting information using dates but using a range. I need this to sort when I enter a date range into the spreadsheet (the blue blocks on the attached spreadsheet). The factors in colum G need to be sorted by month and input into the yellow highlighted area in column B. There may be an easier way of pulling the data from the "Data" sheet but this was the best I could figure out. Overall, January (or any of the months)needs to have the January (or appropriate) factor that fits within the date range that was input but sorted properly based on the months listed in Column A.
This works for the table as it is but the range may change as more rows are added to the table. I want it to start at row three as the first two rows are headers but in future tables the bottom row may not be 176. I dont want to include all rows as row 177 contains totals that I dont want to be included in the sort. what I should put as the range so that this macro will work regardless of how many rows are in the table?
I have managed to produce a table which uses formulas to calculate the amount of 'points' someone/a team has accumulated over a period of time however it seems that for some reason or another I cannot sort the table into order of 'who has the most points'
above is the final standings but as you can see the 'sort' function isnt working, and if i do any other sort the name of the person and the points no longer correspond... i.e. it ends up putting the names in alphabetical order and leaving all other columns as they currently are, or it changes the points column, leaving the names in the same place...
I've just come across Excel doing seemingly doing something really rather daft - though it equally could be me. I've grouped dates in a pivot table to 7 days at a time to group weeks, but when I then sort by date order it sorts by all those ranges starting with a 1st of the month, followed by all the 2nd's, etc.
Is it possible to have dynamic sorting in a table?
What I am after is a scoreboard type effect where as results are entered, the teams are sorted automatically, rather than entering all of the details and then doing a sort afterwards.
I have attached a table where I would like the sorting of columns B - E done in the following order (All decreasing order):
Comp Points first then by Sets % then by Points %
I am drawing this info from another table. Will this have an effect on if it can be sorted dynamically? Hoping that as i enter a result in the other table, it will bring across the current comp points, set % and points %, and then sort the table into the rankings all at once.
I'm trying to sort a table as displayed in the image below. The table consisting of items in column A, here fruits, and a column E where totals over three month is displayed.
I have entered an array formula in column H where the total of each fruit is summed and then sorted in descending order. My problem is that whenever two fruits have equal value (here, apple and pear), Excel will not manage the display of both fruits, it will just display the first twice. The formula in column I is a simple SUMIFS.
It doesn't matter if Apple or Pear is displayed first, but I need both items to be displayed in column H.
I would like to know If we can sort the pivot table data in a bunch of Groups. e.g 50 years based on decades. currently I am able to group only once in a given range. but I would like to define several more ranges e.g 1970-1990 and 1990-2010 and etc
if one of the guys, for example, John were to improve his score to a 369, I'd change the score in Excel, then use the sort feature to put him above Michael and Tim. Only problem is, it would say his place is still 4th place, and it doesn't change to 2nd place.
I want it so the "Place" column automatically changes to the correct rank based on the score the person has. So if I changed John's 355 score to 369 and hit sort by A-Z, Excel would automatically change the "Place" he's in appropriately so it would look like this:
I have a pivot table and i am trying to display the rows in order of relevance. I have a bit of code that will sort the rows into the order I want them which I have included. My problem is that sometimes I will have rows that will not be there, If position 3 doesn't exist I would expect it to display 1,2,4,5 but instead I get an error message.
I'm selecting only some rows in a Table trying to sort only these rows (e.g. rows 11 thru 75 in a 200 row table), but when I hit Sort Excel always overrides my selection by selecting all the rows in the table instead. The same thing happens in VBA. I'm using Excel 2007.
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.
I have a workbook with multiple sheets.Sheet1 is named "UPC" and is a giant database for my workbook containing 80,000+ rows and 12 columns.
Sheet2 is named "Scan" and uses a bunch of index-match formulas. Basically, you scan a barcode and it auto-populates across the row all the information it pulls with that particular UPC from the "UPC" sheet. One of my columns, "QTY Scanned", in the "UPC" sheet has a countif formula to keep track of how many times that item was scanned on the "Scan" sheet.
Sheet3 is named "PSlip" and has a big button on it that you press and multiple macros go into overdrive. First macro takes all the rows from "UPC" with a quantity greater than 0 in the "QTY Scanned" column and copies it to the "PSlip" sheet.
Second macro takes that data and makes a pivot table.This is all clothing, pants, shirts, jackets, etc...When my pivot table is created, my Column Label is Size. When the pivot table is created, it automatically sorts it in ascending order, so it goes from numbers to letters.
This is great for pants because the size is in reference to a waist size; 24,25,26,27, etc...
HOWEVER, shirts, jackets, and other tops are not in a numeric size: they are in a Text format. XS, S, M, L, etc...
Sometimes we only scan pants for an order, sometimes only tops, sometimes both.
Is there a way for the pivot table to recognize when tops are in included and automatically sort the sizes?
I still want the numeric values at the beginning, but once the text starts it automatically sorts in this order:
I am doing a macro that will access a specific sheet of my workbook, a specific table, and will sort the table according to the field "Nominal", from largest to smallest. I have tried with this but it doesn't work:
i have generated a olap cube and display it using pivot table. But i am unable to sort my data from acsending order. For example: I had right clicked on my pivot table > field settings > Advanced > Select "Ascending". The data (sum of quantity) remains unsort after i have checked ok.
