Pivot Tables #4
Hello you experts out there.
I nned some Pivot table advice ( a website address for
basics would be great), for instance how to excplain
pivots and how to create them.
I use lots of products with lots of sizes from various
suppliers to name but a few columns. Is there a limit as
to the amount of columns of data?
Thank you very much.
check out Debra Dalgleish's site - http://www.contextures.com/tiptech.html -
she has a link to Jon Peltier's site which explains PT basics and then lots
more interesting info on them.

I am having trouble trying to calculate fields through a pivot table.
Basically, I have a data set that looks like this:
Record Number State Value
1 CA 0
2 CA 12
3 CA 15
4 NJ 0
5 NJ 10
I want to set up a pivot table that will show 2 columns, one with th

non-zero values. Both of the...Pivot Tables
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...Margins format
i have a document in 2007 where users pasted different pieces including
Excel tables. How do i bring them all to a single margin format as some
pages are wider than the others? i tried the format brush tool but it did
Thank you ,
In Page Setup, you can set the margins for "Whole document," which will take
care of the margins even if the document contains more than one section. It
will not, however, affect the width of existing tables. What you'll need to
do for those is to set the table width (Table tab of Table Prop...Change Y-Axis Run length?
I have a data table that uses data by week. That data has 52 weeks. I
build a linechart and end up with a Y axis running from 1 to 52. Great.
I replace that Data table via Cut and Paste with a data table that only
goes from 1 to 26. The data in my chart changes to reflect that,
(good,) but the Y-Axis still goes from 1 to 52, instead of 1 to 26.
This wastes half of the space in my graph. I am going to eventually
automate this with data From Access.
How can I reset that Y-Axis to reflect the data?
You should be able to click on the specific axis, then right click and fo..."Automatic Formating" (colored bars)

none. I have cleared form cache and emptied the Deleted items folder

I have created a pivot table which has a one subgroup in the second
column from the left. It uses the Top 10 option, so there are 10
So my data looks something like this:
Group 1 50

Subgroup 1b 40
Eight more subgroups
Group 2 30
Subgroup 2a 20
Subgroup 2b 10

What I would like to do is sort by THe totals for Group 1, but then

I have a line chart representing data correctly on one
axis. I add the line for the secondary axis and it looks
fine, I change it to bars and it does not span the full
length of the Y axis. It gets shortened to half its
original length. The custom line-bar chart provided with
excel is not working either. I have over 1000 plot points
on one axis and only 23 on the secondary axis, could this
be afecting the chart from displaying properly?

I know you have the count field but is there away to input a formula?
For example customer ordered 25 cases and each case weighs 4 lbs and
the end result would need to be total pounds ordered.
If you do the calculation in the pivot table you may not get the result
that you expect. If possible, add a field to the source data, and
calculate the order total there.
Then, add the OrderTotal field to the pivot table's data area.

You can't. Masking of phone numbers is hard coded.

Does anyone where I can find such information?
Check out the Great Plains SDK available on the installation CDs. There
are several diagrams that describe table relationships. Also, there are
module documents that contain posting flowcharts.

Are you trying to clear all the check boxes in the field's dropdown

When I try doing this by copying the table it appears in excelwith one or two
empty lines in between each of my lines that I needed converting. Why is
