I'm having a bit of difficulty with this one I have four downloads that come in large tables. The columns are similar, but not uniform. i.e. one table will have column B as JE Entry, but the next table does not have this COlumn Column B is named something else.
My plan was to simply manually make the columns uniform by moving them around to suit my needs and combine all the data, but then I rant past the 65,000 line limit (Excel 2003). So my next shot was to try to create a pivot table from multiple consolidation ranges, but instead of looking at the columns from each table as items to populate my pivot table I got something altogether different.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can combine these tables somehow so I can run a pivot table?
TIA,
Brian
How do I combine pivot tables?
I tried using the multiple consolidation ranges discussed here but it didn't work out the way I want it to. My data is as follows: each column is a different year, each row is a different month, and the contents of one table are dollar figures while the other is transactions. There are conveniently the same number of columns and rows in each table in the same order.
I have a problem with pivot tables becasue I need to total numbers from multiple pivot tables and it is not allowing me to do this. So basically I need to create a pivot table which takes data from existing pivot tables but not just one table, multiple tables.
The catch is that the headings will all stay the same, but the data is the only thing that needs to change. So if there is a way to create a pivot table that gathers info from multiple pivot tables or if there is any other way such as a formula that could be used to gather this information that would be of benefit to get as well.
Hopefully someone can help me out here that would be awesome!

Hello, I current work with three separate pivot tables. Is there a way to combine them all into one pivot table? Some of the data is the same (business sector and practice) while other information is different depending on the pivot table created. Thank you.
I have two separate worksheets and each worksheet has a pivot table. Is there a way to combine the two pivot tables. Basically the area that counts the data need to be combined.
I can do the obvious which is of course copy each for values only and merge them that way but thought there was a way to merge two pivot tables.
Hello All,
I was wondering if it's possible to combine two Pivot Tables in Excel into one Pivot. Ultimately, what I am trying to do is create a Pivot Chart (Line Chart) that displays three different sets of data derived from two fields in my Raw Data, and the only way I can think of going about doing this (without Macros and without losing data) is to create two different Pivot Tables from the same data and then combine the results of those into one Pivot table that the Pivot Chart would be based on (hopefully that made as much sense to you as it did in my head ;) .
So far, I can't seem to find a way to accomplish this, and will probably need to write a script that reorganizes the data the way I need it, but I figured I would check here first, in case someone else found a nonmacro solution.
Thanks.

I've created a pivot table off of data from two other pivot tables. One
pivot table has $millions by product by quarter, and the other pivot table
has volumes by product by category. The first table only has some products,
but the second one has every product. When I create a pivot table with
multiple ranges referencing these two tables and have the values multiply, if
there's no entry in the first table it assumes 1 instead of 0 and returns the
total volume. Is there any way around this, or some other tool in Excel that
would accomplish what I want? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
Hi all. Here is my question,
I have 14 Pivot Tables on this report that I make fairly often...7 tabs, 2
Pivot Tables per tab. Basically, each tab is a region in the US, and 2
different Pivot Tables for different types of inventory. Now, I 'could' just
program a macro to do this in vba fairly easily, however, there has to be a
way to duplicate a Pivot Table easily without having to run through the Pivot
Table Wizard everysingle time...
Is there a way to create multiple Pivot Tables, or copy them quickly?
So I have 1 excel with 8 sheets of data from 8 different years. They have the same column headings on each sheet. I would combine them into one sheet, but excel won't let me (too many rows).
Is there a way to do a pivot table with all the data? That is, create a pivot table from data on multiple sheets? Is there a way to combine all the data into one sheet? I've never used Access so I have no idea what I would do.
What I am trying to do is get a 'count' of a certain attribute for all the years, not just one year.
If not, then is there a way to make 8 pivot tables and then somehow consolidate that information into one pivot graph?
Thanks.
Hello all...
I have a few questions here :
Q no 1 : Its regarding Pivot tables...generally, when we prepare a Pivot Table, we get an Auto Filter with the Columns we drag in the Table... but how can we switch over from the traditional Pivot Table Filter to a Normal Autofilter???
Q no 2 : Its regarding VLookups. Generally when I use vlookups for around 20000 rows, it gets hanged and takes lots of time in calculating cells.. it
shows that calculating cells 10%, 20 % etc, but today I got a spreadsheet wth 10 tabs, and in one of the tabs, there were 18000+ rows with V Lookups attached to it. But it calculated the Cells dammn fast...took just fraction of seconds...why it was so??? Am I putting my vlookups in a wrong manner??? Or can you tell me the way to put vLookup in such a way so that it doesnt calculate cells or calculates fastly?
Please reply....I am dying coz of these probs.
Thanks,

Hello,
I'm trying to make pivot tables from an external database: Datatrac, and I'm having a difficult time properly combining multiple tables in query. Any help in explaining how to combine tables, and then once combined how to exit query without the pivot table not containing any data would be appreciated.
Thank you
Hi everyone, TIA for having a look..
I have three columns of data validation, they are the
same list, basically they just allow the user to choose
up to three items from the list for clarity in the data.
Upon doing the pivot table (the data is initially based
on days and can repeat, hence the tables), i've run into
a snag, how do i set it up so that the table is
calculating the Count from the entire array instead of
column by column?
Then, the next issue after that is that there are two,
almost identical sheets that are used for similar (but
not similar enough) entries. So, similar Data validated
lists, i need to wither add the two seperate tables, or
combine them into one. I know, troublesome.. but worth a
brain flexing, i know i have.
I tried to combine the multiple pages into 1 table only
to have it take over 15 minutes to initially read the
data and finally a forced shutdown of Excel XP to bring
it around. I'm now sitting shaking in my chair
muttering "pivot tables are our friends" over and over
again :)
Thanks for the help.

Hello All,
I have searched the boards and have not been able to locate exactlly what I need. I am hoping that once again I can learn for the best. I apoligize up front if this topic has already been covered. I have 3 pivot tables in the same worksheet. Each pivot table pulls from the same pool of data and is layed out exactly the same. Each pivot table keys off of different row lables. I am utilizing 2 report filter options. What I am trying to accomplish is for 2 of the pivot tables to update to the same report filter options that I enter in the first pivot table. I have forud code that works with all pivot table in all worksheets with one report option. I just want the 3 pivot tables in this one sheet to work together. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!
Right now I have 3 months of ticketing data (in 3 seperate sheets) arranged like this:
issue type, application
bug, excel
task, powerpoint
I want to make a chart that displays the count of different applications from month to month.
My plan to do this:
Create a pivot table for each month to count the number of tickets per application
Make a pivot table to combine the 3 monthly pivot tables
I'm having problems with #2. I know to use the pivot chart wizard to select multiple can get the pivot table to use, and this will work as long as I don't include any whitespace in my final pivot table. If I have whitespace I get a count of 1 for everything.
I don't know how many applications there will be. So I need a way to either only select cells that aren't blank, or a way to get the pivot table to work fine with whitespace.

I have several pivot tables that I use to summarize the data I need and then, currently, I am using vlookups to transfer the pivot table data to reports. This creates error sometimes  becuase the pivot tables can change each time I run the report  so I have to make sure that the vlookup is searching the entire pivot table range.
I think I understand the GetPivotData function, but what confuses me is that my pivot tables have only calculated data. I have attached an example of a pivot I use. I am not sure how to retrieve the data. I need to retrieve the region data for each category and I also need to retrieve the grand total for each category.
I think if this was a basic pivot then I would be able to write a working GetPivotData function  but of course...

I am trying to write a macro that changes the source data for multiple pivot tables on multiple sheets. here is what I have so far. However it seems to only update 1 Pivot table per worksheet and crashes once it hits a sheet without any pivot table. Any help is appreciated.
Sub AllWorkbookPivots()
Dim pt As PivotTable
Dim ws As Worksheet
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
For Each pt In ws.PivotTables
ws.PivotTableWizard SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
"Data_063011"
Next pt
Next ws
End Sub
I am making a button that will print multiple pivot tables with a single click. But the tables will update periodically. So I am looking for a way to 'name' the ranges to which the pivot tables belong in the macro, then print the named range, rinse and repeat.
I think I can do most of it by simply recording the macro... but, Can someone help me in finding out how to set a range to reference a pivot table as a whole, rather than manually select the range to which the pivot table belongs each time?
Hi y'all,
In Excel 2000, it was possible to select more than one range for a pivot table, so you could combine two tables, if the headers were the same. That was possible with the wizard. Is that also possible in the 2007 version? I'm sure it must be, but I can't find it. Can somebody please help me?
Thanx in advance!

I have a sales application that contains tables of approx 70 fields with
sales data for each year, one of which is a year field. I'd love to combine
the tables into a single table so that I can represent the data in a Pivot
Table, but need to figure out how to show, create, calculate a variance
field, and a % variance field in a pivot table if I do combine the tables.
In the Pivot table I'd want to show:
2004 Sales 2005 Sales Variance % Variance
10 12 2 20%
Note: The Sales field is the same field, just a different year
Any Suggestions?
I have two issues with some pivot tables.
Firstly, I want to place a pivot table directly underneath another Pivot table. The upper table has grouped items (doubleclicking on the group name causes the table to show the grouped items and expand). However, this causes an error because there is a pivot table right below the top table and the expansion of the the top table would cause the two to overlap. Is it possible for the bottom pivot table to be shifted down whenever the top table is expanded, and shifted back up when the top table is minimizes?
Secondly, I want all of my pivot tables to be refreshed (AltDR) whenever I run a macro. The macro already exists and performs other tasks. The refreshing of the pivot tables would just be an additional task for the macro to perform.
Any help would be appreciated.
