#### Pivot Table row comparison

```I'm trying to compare an old customer schedule with their new schedule
and highlight the changes with colour or by hiding a row. My pivot
table looks like this

Prod Sched wk1 wk2 wk3
A    old   3   2   3
A    new   3   4   3
B    old   2   2   2
B    new   2   2   2

So in the above example I'd like to colour the cells for wk2- Product A
in yellow, and hide the product B rows as there has been no change in
demand.

```How about an alternative???

Your raw data looks kind of like this:

Prod Sched wk# qty

I'd insert a new helper quantity:

Under that adjqty, you'd have a formula like:

=if(c2="new",d2,-d2)

(negative numbers if the schedule was old)

Then create a pivottable that just shows the difference.

Prod Wk1 wk2
A    3   0
B   -5   5
....

What do you think?

```Wow, never thought of that.

Thanks for the suggestion Dave, I've given it a go and it's helpful
(nice and quick) but not ideal as I need to display totals so we can
judge if we can physically make the quantity.

I'm currently trying to do what i want in VBA by cycling through every
row and comparing each weeks quantity. If they don't match I highlight
the cells in yellow. Not got it working yet but I still think there
must be a better way.

Thanks anyway,
r

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...

Using formulas for pivot table
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.

chart options show data table
Currently using 2 workbooks to produce 1 chart - the source data in workbook 1 and the chart in workbook 2. We also are using the "show data table" option to most easily view all values in the chart. We would like this data to keep it's currency format to best reflect the values in the chart; however, the data table loses this formatting when we close workbook 1. Is there any way to hang onto this formatting after the workbook is closed? Data tables in charts are not particularly flexible or capable. You combine the workbooks. Alternatively, put a table in the chart's...

pivot table error (25000 rows!!)
I am trying to run a pivot table on a file containing 25000 rows. I have 5 duplicate (identical structure) files. The pivot works on each but one. On this file I get an error saying it has too many columns or rows in the pivot table. Drag at least one column or row off the table...
