Pivot Tables
Hi, I was windering if some one could provide me with a link to a tutorial for what I am trying to do. I have an aggregate table. This table has several groups and several columns. The intersection of a group and column is an aggreate value such as Sum function of a column value in that group. Normally a Pivot table shows 1 aggregate value at the intersection of a group and a column. What I want is: To show more than one value at the intersection besides the aggregate value. In other words, if a simple pivot table cell is: Aggr(x,y) where aggr is an aggregate function such a...

Count blanks by date
I have a table that has meter# , date, and usage in colums A, B and C. I use a formula =sumif(\$B\$11:\$B1000,"="[date],\$C\$11:\$C1000) to total up the amount of usage for each day. But what I want to do is count the number of blanks in column C for each date. So "if \$B\$11:\$B1000,"="[date] then countblank(\$C\$11:\$C1000)" is kind of what I'm shooting for but I can't wrap my brain around how to do it.

Stock Count Entry #6
A flaw in the reconciliation of the stock count entry is that if there is a variance between system and actual counts, it is almost impossible to reconcile by virtue of the fact that the unposted transactions screen omits to tell the quantities relating to each transaction. You manually have to go into each transaction to determine the quantity, and then keep a running total manually. Surely anyone doing a reconciliation would need to at least know the total of the unposted transaction quantities, otherwise, how is the variance going to be entered correctly? ...
