#### Pivot table question: Sorting the subgroup in a pivot table (when using the top 10 option for the subgroup)

```Hello:
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
subgroups

So my data looks something like this:

Group 1                          50
Subgroup 1a              10
Subgroup 1b              40
Eight more subgroups

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

What I would like to do is sort by THe totals for Group 1, but then
also sort by the subgroups, based on the values for each subgroup
(similar to the "Sort by, then by.." option in a normal table).

So, the top 10 Groups will show up at the top, and then the subgroups
will also be sorted descending.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

Thanks for any suggestions
```

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...

Pivot Chart Formatting #5
How can I format a Pivot Chart and keep the customized format when refreshed? This is a known issue by Microsoft.

Protecting a Worksheet but ability to Sort
Does anyone know if you can protect a worksheet so other users cannot change the contents of the cells, but still allow them to sort the worksheet? I have tried everything to get this to work, but to no avail. Thank you, Toni Maybe you could put a button from the forms toolbar on the worksheet. Assign a macro to that button that 1. unprotects the worksheet 2. sorts the data 3. reprotects the worksheet Toni wrote: > > Does anyone know if you can protect a worksheet so other > users cannot change the contents of the cells, but still > allow them to sort the worksheet?...

Out of Office question #2
A company manager wants to set Out of Office messages for ALL users before holidays in an international business. (Exchange 2000 environment). He wants this because sometimes his workers are away or forget to set the Out Of Office messages, and so overseas clients sometimes don't know why they are not getting a reply. Is that possible, to set one message for the entire company without doing it individually? Thanks for your thoughts.

Wierd Forward question in Outlook 2000
I had a user complaint today that really got me thinking. Here's the situation: User A sends an email to User B B forwards email only to User C B receives an email back from A regarding forward to C before C reads the message. I make two assumptions here, based on what I know about users B and C: 1) User C did not have a rule set up to forward email to A (No way he would do this) 2) User B did indeed only forward, and not reply plus add C to the email So, how does User A see the forward sent to C? A is a member of the administrators group, but does not have the administrator user pas...

Incentive Stock Options
I used MSFT Money for while and had an account with Incentive Stock Options that I "synced" with MSN Money's Portfolio. That resulted in an account showing the Stock Option purchases.

In Training Web, use both or neutral gender words.
MSN should use masculine pronouns with feminine pronouns in the paragraph found in their Training website, or stick with non-sexist neutral pronouns. Unless MSN is decidedly feminist, the excluse portrayal of bosses as all being female is unrealistic, to say the least, and sexist, to use a familiar "approbation." Although such grievances have been voiced by feminists and feminist sympathizers about gender and authority, to frown upon masculine only designations of positions (e.g. mailman), the exclusivisty, prejudice, and unprofessionalism of the paragraph cited is an inju...

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...

Remove Vista Activation use an internal hardware dongle instead.
Almost every user of Windows Vista that I know is completely frustrated by your Windows activation system. Why not simply include a hardware dongle that verifies that only one copy of the software is being used. Without the dongle... the OS would not even boot. Might even stop piracy. Needs to be internal so that it cannot be taken by thieves. Make a serialized dongle that only works with the particular CD installation disk. Or better still.... make a high speed read only internal mini disk that loads the core Operating system. This would prevent Viruses from attacking the core OS...

PINGing a List of Servers Using VBScript
