I have a very simple pivot table that I am trying to use as a data source for a VLOOKUP request. Unfortunately, every time I do it I get the result #NA. I have tried recreating the results from the pivot table in the worksheet next to it, and am able to use VLOOKUP on them successfully, but as soon as I point the VLOOKUP array to the pivot table, I get the #NA result

Can VLOOKUP be used on pivot tables? If so, is there any special syntax I need to use?

Thanks


Also, I cannot move the Pivot Table from the new Worksheet it is created in, to my existing Worksheet.

I am running Excel 2011 for Mac.

I have a Worksheet with a small amount of data, and when I click the Pivot Table button it automatically creates the Pivot Table in a new Worksheet. The Pivot Table data is fine, but I want it to display alongside the source data.
I've tried using the Move Pivot Table option and choosing to Create Pivot Table in Existing Worksheet and choosing a source cell alongside my current data, but nothing appears. Also, I checked in Edit menu and found that the Pivot Table appears to have not even been created/moved because there is no option to undo it.

Appreciate any help, let me know if you have any further questions.

In my pivot table I have a lot of cells without any data. The report looks like garbage with all the (BLANK) sohowing up in the report.

I've tried condtional formatting where if the cells = (BLANK) it woulf format them as white -did not work

I tried the pivot table options and clicking on the box "for empty cells show" and set it to 0 then empty but that did not work.


any Ideas???

Thanks


Hi everyone,

I found an excellent macro this morning that allows the user to filter a pivot table based on the value found in a specific cell. This cell essentially acts as a search bar, allowing the user to type in what they are looking for rather than select it from a drop-down list.

The macro works perfectly for my purposes except in one regard: I can no longer perform a "show all" filter. If I leave the "search bar" cell blank, the pivot table shows nothing. I'm sure that there is an easy fix for this but I'm still learning the basics of how to write and use macros. How can I change the code so that when I leave the cell blank, the pivot table shows all? The search bar cell is D2.

Thanks for your time!


i want to retain the data and format, but get rid of the pivot capacity before sharing the spreadsheet. right now if a copy/paste special, i can get the data, but not the formats, any suggestions?


Hi,

Im working with a large data spreadsheet that has Yes and No answers in different columns. There are blanks within the selection too.
I need to calculate only the Yes.
I have tried using the filters in the Pivot Table field list and they are not working.
So now i'm trying to add a COUNTIF formula in the Calculated Fields section.
The formula I'm using is =Countif('Time limit extension'="yes") and i get the answer "too few."
What should I be using in the formula to get the calculated field to work? I have search the whole forum and I haven't found an answer that can help me.

Please HELP!!!


Dear Sir,

If any one could give me a solution for this its will be a great help for me.

I am working in a bank and on every day we receive Month to date data of Loans and advances made by every branch with Region wise total and manager wise total. With Sum of loan and count of loan. In our MIS format the in A coulum branches are sorted and listed in a sequence with sub total Region. I have data where if if do the pivot and change the data the out put should be displayed accordingly in the MIS format. Can any one help me how can we do this or is there any other office addins/softwares are available if so the data is changed on a daily basis and if we do the pivot it will automatically copy the data to the MIS format.

Thanks.


I need a formula to calculate Turn Around Time. Find below the sample data and details for your reference.

Received Date & Time: 10/29/2010 3:27:00 PM
Completed Date & Time: 11/1/2010 3:57:32 AM
Business Hours: 08:00 AM to 05:00 PM
Non Business hours: 05:00 PM to 08:00 AM
Weekdays : Monday to Friday
Weekends: Saturday & Sunday

If I calculate TAT for this time period it should show me 1 hour 33 minutes, why because business hours are closing by 5:00 PM on 10/29 so it should not calculate duration after 5:00 PM to until 08:00 AM on next day, however 10/29 is Friday so formula should calculate the duration from 10/29 Friday 3:37 PM to 10/29 5:00 PM and again it should calculate from 8:00 AM on 11/01 Monday and formula should skip Saturday & Sunday.

In this scenario I have completed the task before 8:00 AM on 11/01 so it should show duration of 1hour 33 minutes.

Please let me know if you need any more details

Is there a trick to copy-paste a group of cells into Outlook? I don't want to paste as a picture (shows up as an attachment and is lost when someone else Replies), but formatting is skewed when pasted as an Excel object. Right now I'm recreating the table in Word, then pasting, which doesn't loose formatting.

A specific problem is cells which don't have borders show up with very light grey borders in Outlook. This, I do not want.

I've been using Excel for years and had very few issues. However, I recently went into a spreadsheet to update it and was unable to select and enter data into an individual cell. When I click on a cell and try to enter #s nothing happens (my num lock is on). Then when I try to click into another cell it just highlights that cell, along with any other that I move my cursor over. Once I click on one cell I can't stop the highlighting from happening. I can't even click on anything in the toolbar. I am extremely confused, can anyone help?


I have a pivot chart with a bunch of data series, and every time we
include/exclude one of the series to see how the chart changes, all the
colors change and we have to spend time re-identifying which series is
which, using the legend to check the colors.

Is there a way to "lock" the colors, so that the bars stay the same colors
regardless of whether other bars are included/excluded?

Thanks!
Keith





I have a problem sometimes. I will click on a cell to add information.
The cell turns blue and then wherever I move, it highlights those to.
No matter where I go on the page. If I Alt-Tab and work in another
program on my computer, that excel page keeps highlighting wherever
I move even in those other programs (I know this sounds confusing).
When I return to excel thousands and thousands of cells are blue.


The biggest problem is that the highlighting won't turn off, no matter
what. I can't select anything from the tool bars, do any work on the sheet or close the program.
I can close it only with the task manager but when I open it again,
the cursor is still stuck in the highlighting mode and won't perform any
other functions.

Do you think this is a problem with my computer, the excel program? I have changed my mouse and this didn't help.
Is there some shortcut to turn off this highlight feature other than restarting
my computer. Which is the only current way I can get rid of it.

Thanks for any advice,


I would like to copy a small table from Word into one cell in an Excel
worksheet. The first column of the table is a list of numbers. I tried
converting the table into text with manual line breaks and tab stops to
divide columns and rows, but that didn't solve my problem.

Excel pastes the data into several rows. When I try to merge them, I
get a warning that the selection contains multiple data values, and
merging into one cell keeps the upper-left most data only.

What I tried that didn't work:
* Formatting the Excel cells as text before pasting the data.
* The various options for "Paste Special." The closest I got was
inserting the table as a Document Object, which could be a workaround,
I guess.
What I am saving for when all else fails:
* The obvious solution of copying row by row into one Excel cell.

The data in the table is information about my dad's medications. I
would like to have reference charts of how to identify the strength of
each tablet by its color and markings. I got the info from the
manufacturers' websites and entered it into tables in Word, which I
would like to copy into a more comprehensive file I am creating in
Excel. The first column of each table is the strength of the tablet,
entered as 1 mg., 2 mg., etc. The subsequent columns describe the
shape, color, and markings. There are 3 tables, each with about 4-5
rows.

Is there a way to copy each one - whether as a table or as text - into
a single Excel cell without losing data?

Many thanks.




Hi Professionals,

I have just tried running the following code

Code:

Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
With ws
If .FilterMode Then .ShowAllData
End With
Next ws


in the hope that it might 'unfilter' my table but it literally doesn't do a thing!

My table is called Activity_Table

Can you provide me with something that will 'unfilter' my table if it is filtered on any or all 6 columns?

Help appreciated,

Dominic


Hey there,

I have been tasked with introducing userforms into an excel sheet and tbh I'm quite amazed that excel has this capability of adding userforms to excel sheets.

Anyway, I have 2 columns of data in an excel sheet and I wish to add this to a userform so that the userform displays the 2 columns beside each other with headings, like a table. The user should then be able to select a particular row and insert it into the specified cell.

I would also like the user to select a row on the table and then be able to bring up another table depending on the row selected...basically so that the user can draw deeper into the information that they require.

I have an example excel sheet where I have 2 sheets. One sheet is the user entry sheet called User Entry Screen. the next sheet is the tables sheet where my tables are held. Once the user selects the cell shown in the example sheet, it should then bring up the user form. the user then, depending on which item clicked, then gets shown the next window with a table and info on it. then user should then be able to select an item and the cells on the user entry screen would then get populated.

Personally I think this is a really tricky challenge and any help with doing this would be extremely appreciated.

I'll post up further comments as I am trying to work my way through it!

Thanks,

Jag

Is there a way to use the new conditional formats (data bars, icon sets, etc) in PowerPoint? Basically, I'd like to create a table that shows icons based on data, like in Excel? I know I could paste a pre-made Excel table as a picture, but I'd like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks!


Is it possible to apply a filter to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook, using the same filter criteria?

For example, suppose you have tables of data on 3 different tabs, all having the same headings. Suppose one of the headings is "gender". If you apply a filter to the table on Sheet 1, to only show the rows containing the word "female", is it possible to have the tables on Sheets 2 and 3 automatically update to only show the "female" rows? Or would you have to manually update the filter criteria in Sheets 2 and 3?

I hope this makes sense. Thank you in advance for any help.


I am a very advanced Excel user so this is a new one for me.

When I open any spreadsheet (new or already populated) the black box that normally frames the active cell is missing (showing which cell you have selected). Likewise when I 'select all' the sheet does not become shaded.

In addition:

Can not fill series
Can not change cell format (specifically to show Currency or Accounting w/$ symbol)

And I am sure there is much more that I have not found yet. I have not seen a single thread on this topic anywhere on the internet.

Help!


I saw two threads in this forum that asked this question, with no good answer. I am posting this solution for anybody still struggling with this.

The question:
How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?

Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.

Some people have suggested putting a space in the next cell. This is unnecessary, a pain in the but, and will mess up any ISBLANK type formulas, among other things.

The solution:
Select the cells in question and turn on text wrapping (Format>Cells>Alignment>Wrap Text).
Now select the row(s) in question and manually set the row height, by right clicking the row number and selecting "Row Height". Check the height of an adjacent row for a good value.

Your cells will now not spill over either horizontally or vertically. They will simply truncate anything that doesn't fit.

Be careful now, because parts of your data may be hidden. This can cause its own set of problems if one or two digits are neatly hidden away. Think ahead if other people might be using this sheet, and not be expecting to have some data hidden.

I am setting up a PivotTable and only want to show the actual raw data values in the PivotTable field and NOT any sum, count, average, max, min, etc etc.

How can I do this? I only seem to have the options for sums, counts, etc. There are no options for just presenting the data.

So for example, rather than a PivotTable that results in counts of 1, 1, 1 in each cell, I want it to show Compay1, Company2, Company3, etc.


I have a list of 10-digit numbers, but I want to apply a formula/function or

Hi,

I made a budget with many narrow columns and have turned the data into a table. I will only ever filter the data with the left-hand most column. However, all the other columns are filled each with the grey drop-down filter arrow button, and I can no longer see the headings of these columns and frankly seeing 50 little unused arrow buttons is rather ugly. Is there any way to simply remove the filter drop-down buttons on some columns or even all of them, just leaving a filter button at the heading of the first column? I know I can hide the headings, but then I lose sight of the first filter arrow that I use.

Sorry to ask such a bizarre question, but I appreciate your help.

Thanks
