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 am having trouble trying to calculate fields through a pivot table.
Basically, I have a data set that looks like this:
Record Number State Value
1 CA 0
2 CA 12
3 CA 15

5 NJ 10
I want to set up a pivot table that will show 2 columns, one with th

non-zero values. Both of the...Pivot Tables
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...Report based on query w/subquery won't give a Report Footer total

of record 2), and the average of those times. However, in my report, whenever

How can I format a Pivot Chart and keep the customized format when refreshed?
This is a known issue by Microsoft.
Short answer, you can't do it. =(
One possible work around is to record a macro of you setting the formatting

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:
Group 1 50

also sort by the subgroups, based on the values for each subgroup

...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.
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.

are several diagrams that describe table relationships. Also, there are

I am trying to run a pivot table on a file containing 25000 rows. I have

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,
