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 was windering if some one could provide me with a link to a tutorial for

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:

How can I format a Pivot Chart and keep the customized format when refreshed?

Short answer, you can't do it. =(
One possible work around is to record a macro of you setting the formatting

When I select cells to copy or paste I can't really see which cells are

In MacXL, the highlight color is set in system preferences. Choose
System Preferences/Appearance pane, and change the highlight color to
something more contrasting.
Otherwise, you'll need to use VBA, e.g.:

Anyone help? I am sure it is easy, but can't see how to do it.
If you are using a list then that should be enough unless they copy and

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:

This was added in xl2002 as a built in feature.
Before that version, you'd need a macro. And if the user opened the workbook

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.
