Linking Combo box to pivot table?

Hi All,

I have a pivot table which has teams on the left, months on the top and a 
count of the calls in the data area.

What I would love is that if I could have a combo box on a worksheet which 
when I select a team from its list it only shows me that teams data in the 
pivot table.

Is this possible please??

You could move Team to the page area of the pivot table.
Select a team, and the pivot table will only show its data.

how do I get more than one sub-total in pivot tables?
I am using pivot tables to show summary HR recruiting data. The data columns are nested at three levels - priority(a, b or c), type(add/replace), number of reqs and number of positions. The pivot table automatically gives me sub-totals within the priority so I get number of reqs that are adds of priority A for example. I also automatically get a total of number of reqs and total of number of positions. What I'm trying to get is the sub-total of number of reqs that are adds regardless of priority. Move Type to the column area, and you'll get columns with totals for Add and...

Text box displaying columns from a combo box
I'm using text boxes to display the column data from a combo box. Trouble is when I move to another record or close the form and ome back in, those results are not displayed anymore and I have to reslect the values in the combo boxes to fill in the text boxes. Is there a way to lock the results to the text box for each record? TIA -- Don, Sydney Australia Don, I take it that you have a combo bound to a field in your table.

Combo Box help please
I have a combo box with 4 fields which is using a query made from 2 related tables. Column 0 populates the primary table and I need column 1 to populate the secondary table once selected in the form. The details from each field are located on the form (hidden with a visible field which joins columns 2&3 into one field) Is there a way to do this? Really do not want to split this down if I can help it. If I do need to split it, is there a way to select column 0 and it make the 2nd combo box only show related entries e.g Current Combo - 0=Company Name, 1=ContactID, 2=F...

Word 2003 > 2007 Table issues
In the document where I removed the extra paragraph marks, I now have many tables with vertical text. If I make a column wider, it moves horizontal, but then I have a lot of extra space and it takes away from the previous columns width. I don't see if forcing a cell size. Also, I have many tables which are wider than the size of the page. Is there a way to fix that. Since I have large documents with the above issues, is there a way to globall fix it? Thanks! Of course, Autofit to Window will make the table fit the window... That would be a table by table item, though...

Autopopulate Multiple Fields in Table Using a Form
I have a form based on a table where I want to store data. The data to store comes from combo boxes based on various lookup tables. The wrinkle is that there is one lookup table that contains 2 fields of data (questionnum and question) I want stored in the table once the questionnum is selected. The question field is formatted as 'memo'. When I create the combo box the question field is not an option for selection. I add it manually to the properties after completing the criteria for the combo box. I have been struggling with the code used to autopopulate more than one field but...

Linking two cells in two books
Hi, I have two workbooks. In Book1, I want A2 to be exactly the same as B1 in Book2. The problem is that every night, I run a program which updates Book2, inserting a new row 1, so the value in B1 is now pushed down to be the value in B2 and a new value is inserted into in B1. I want this new value in B1 to be reflected in A2 (Book1). That is, for A2 (Book1) to always be the same value as B1 (Book2), even when B1 becomes a new row with a new value. I thought I would be okay if I used dollar signs, so for A2 in Book1, I have: ='[Book2.xls]AA'!$B$1 But it doesn'...

The following code is used as the criteria in a selct query for a date field: >=DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(Date())-1,1) And <=DateSerial(Year(Date()),Month(Date()),0) It has worked fine until the table included records from January 2010, database was created in 2009.

Multiple Pivot Tables based on the same data
I have two pivot tables based on the same source. However, each table is unique in how it shows the date. The first shows all thirty days of the month. The second groups the date in 10 day increments. The first table is summed data while the other is averaged data.

Defining Print Ranges From Pivot Tables
I have a Excel Spreadsheet that contains 3 workbooks, two of which contain data, one of which contains data which my pivot table on the third workbook feeds off. When in the pivot table i have added 4 four more columns of calculations on the right hand side of the pivot table. These columns use data from the pivot table and the data sheet to perform the calculations. As the amount of data changes variably on what is selected from a field within the pivot table i have had to use iserror and isna formulas so when there is only a short table the colums to the right return blanks rather than error...

Add lookup after the table has been created
Hi there I have created a table and realized that to ease use of adding data, I want to add a lookup column. How do I create a lookup column (either typed in or based on another table) to a field which has already been populated? Thank you Don't do it! You should never be working directly with the tables: you should always use a form. On a form, you can easily bind the field to a combo box. See at "The Access Web" for some of the many reasons why lookup fields in tables are not considered to be a good thing...
