#### Pivot Table Question???

```I've put this out here before but have yet to get any response.... is it too complex or detailed or  not detailed enough for a response??? At least let me know if I need to re-direct my question???

This is pretty detailed, I hope you can follow my train of thought. Normally I would attempt to do this in Access, but since the participants in this project do not have the program or the ability, we will need to do it in Excel. I can't get my brain around where to begin or what tools to use on this one. I think I'm just overwhelmed. We have manually placed in formulas and such to get us through #2. I'm just not sure where to go from there that would be easy for me to get to work and for the end users who have limited skill working with Excel. Also, once this is programed to give us the end results we want, I'm hoping to "dummy proof" this by making some sort of menu screen with push button choices. I've done some simple ones in the past, and I'm sure this will be another question at a later date. I'll worry about that when I get there. Thanks in advance for any advice/help you can give

The data that is collected is as follows

Site		Multiple Site
Code		Multiple Code
Priority		3 different prioritie
Order Date
Order Time	24 hour cloc
Collection Dat
Collection Time	24 hour cloc
Release Dat
Release Time	24 hour cloc
Total Hours	% of an hour based on the difference between the Release Time and the Collection Tim

Also: Each Code has a SET TAT (Set Turn Around Time) based on the three different priorities. i.e. Code 123 has a TAT of 60 minutes for priority 1, 90 minutes for priority 2 and 240 minutes for priority 3. Code 456 has TAT of 20 min, 40 min, and 60 min. etc

With this data, the following needs to be determined

1)	Determine if the Order Time is greater than the Collection time.
a.	If this is true, designate this as “error”. These records are not used in final calculations
b.	If this is false, designate this as “OK”. These will be the records used in the final report
2)	Calculate the TAT on each record not in error (“OK”). Using the Total Hours field, multiply this by 60 to get total minutes. This will provide the TAT for each record
3)	Determine if the TAT for each record is greater than the SET TAT for the test/priority in that record AND If the TAT is more than 6% over the SET TAT, a true condition will be used.
a.	If this is true, designate this as “over”
b.	If this is false, designate this as “under”
4)	For each Test / Priority report out the following
a.	% of TAT that meet the SET TAT (those from 3 that are “under”)
b.	Count of those that meet the SET TAT
c.	The Min, Max and Avg. of  TAT for each Test/Priorit

REPORT
1)	By means of a pivot table or some other means such as that, provide a way for a user to choose which site and test they wish to evaluate. Preferably, a drop down of all available choices within the data table
2)	Format as follows

Site	[Site]
Code	[Code]				                                                   TAT      TAT          TA
SET TAT	Count	           % Meeting SET TAT	            Action	Average	Min	Ma
Priority 1	[SET TAT]	# of priority 1   [all “under” records/Total Count]
Priority 2	[SET TAT]	# of priority 2
Priority 3	[SET TAT]	# of priority 3
[Total Count]

3)	Those < 90% in the “% Meeting SET TAT” column, place “INVESTIGATE” in “Action” column

In these newsgroups you tend to get responses to specific questions.
I don't think you are likely to get someone to design most of a spreadsheet
for you!

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...

chart options show data table

Purchase Orders questions
I guess we do things differnt from everyone else. Most of our orders are made by a sales men of that productline. Mainly because he knows when its on sale how long its on sale and he also counts it each week to make sure of what we are selling. So here is the problem because he makes the order all we have to do is punch in the order to RMS. We use reorder numbers to do this but it seems like it takes so many steps to get the reorder number in. Then my thought was to just use our percon unit to scan the item when we recieve it and then download it in. But RMS Store Ops wont do that. H...
