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 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:

I have created a pivot table which has a one subgroup in the second

So my data looks something like this:

Eight more subgroups
Group 2 30

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

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.

In other words, how does one file feed into another file, and what field or

are several diagrams that describe table relationships. Also, there are
module documents that contain posting flowcharts.

...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...
Does anybody know what the reason for this message is, are their limits
to rows or columns? The identical table works on the other files,
therefore this message is so strange.
