#### Pivot Table Question #15

```Hey all,
Love pivot tables but i have a question, the table is set up as so
Month      Pallet#      BoxesPur      BoxesSold      Price     Frt     Gross
Net
Jan             1             5                                     1.0
..3        Formula   Formula
2             5                                    2.0
.5
3                                     10           3
.15
Jan Total                  10                       10         6.0
..95

So, the problem is in the Jan Total row, is there a way to get the gross
column to sum the column instead of multipling the boxes purchased by the
price. Because the 6*10 if no the correct gross amount.
Anyone have any ideas. Thank you, Jennifer

```You should calculate the Gross for each item in the source table, and
add that field to the pivot table. Then, it will calculate and sum
correctly.

I've asked for this feature ever since about PowerPoint 2000, but it's still not there. Frustrating. You have to do this individually in each cell.

KBV- vlookup question
In the vlookup formula, the range entered includes the columns that need to be searched for matching or similar values and the range also includes the column from which the corresponding value has to be returned. What if there are 2 or more columns within that range that match the lookup value? How does excel handle that? According to Help for Excel 2003, VLOOKUP "searches for a value in the first column of a table array." It only searches in that column for the lookup_value argument. -Ryan KBV wrote: > In the vlookup formula, the range entered includes the columns that ne...

Form feeding a table problem
I am a newer user of Access and inherited a database from a person no longer with the company. I am using a form to input invoice amounts into an invoice table.

When I look at the invoice table after I close the form, the info I typed (invoice update) is there, but the customer info that is automatically pulled doesn't load from the customer table to the invoice table.
