Q: Solved: Pivot multiple sheets for text, date and decimal fields

EXCEL SOS!!! I have an urgent deadline which I'm likely to fail if I can't get my head around this issue so please please feel free to comment / offer suggestions...I'll try anything!

I have around 10 - 15 sheets within the same excle file which is effectively acting as one tab per resource within my consultancy team. These are acting a a record of the billable & non billable hours per resource and therefore each line is primarily driven by date (2011 - 2013), with 1:N ratio items of the following: Client, Contract, Role, Days & hrs (effectively 1 line per date, resource, client & contract combination + time billed within the std 8 hr working day).

I have no problems creating individual pivot tables in the individual resource name's relevant tab, however the next step is to roll this information togather to show a holistic view for all resources, all clients etc (in what I anticipated to be a pivot table via the consolidation of multiple ranges function) for all resources by exactly the same fields:

Year, Date, Contract/Type, Resource, & Date - at row level (with possible additional options of Month, Week, Day being added as a row label)


CLIENT , Non Billable - at column level

Naturally there may well be some slicing and dicing of the info needed to understand the figures at different levels, ie per resource (days billed & rate), how many hours used per contract, how we've used time in a contract (by role), & whom (by resource) per client, and time range (Annually, Qtrly, H1/H2, Monthly etc).

I've followed numerous you tube videos on how to perform the consolidation from mutlpile data sources (ie the multiple tabs) to try and understand what I'm doing wrong, from both the raw data lists and the individual pivots that are created correctly at one tab/resource level, but I just cannot get the data to display correctly (grr!). There are 3 things I've noticed that suspect may be causing the problem:

1) I am limited to 4 page fields and although I've researched into what these are exactly I only get vague explanations (East / West tab) if any, and no real context to help understand how that could possibly translate to my situation. I've tried using Client, Contract, Resource, Day as page fields but this doesn't bring any values back in the final pivot...but when I set page field 1 as the resource name (ie as per the tab structure) and move the first column of each sheet to contain the column with the resource name, it at least shows the underlying values of the resource/tab names but nothing else.

2) All the examples on you tube are all purely figures and therefore SUM correctly. My data is a combination of text, date and figures I'd like to sum. As I only ever get COLUMN, ROW, and Page Fields 1 - 4 (dependant on how many I've specified) I cannot break either the rows or the columnal underlying data out...

3) I can't seem to get the row level structure that I can get in the individual sheet pivot tables...No idea why!

I apologies for the long explanation but as I'm sure you can appreciate, as this is relatively confidential data I'm not in a position to provide the file easily, so I've sent a screenshot or two that hopefully will outline the pivot I have successfully acheived along with what I'm seeing on the consolidated pivot view, in addition to the above explanation..

Any help you can provide would be VERY VERY much appreciated!

Hi there, welcome to the board!

I feel your frustration. Unfortunately your data structure isn't conducive for a PivotTable data model. But there is hope! You have some options here. First of all we need to know what version you're using. If you have 2010, well, you're going to really like what I'm about to tell you, and if you don't have it, it's a good reason to upgrade! 2010 has a new add-in called PowerPivot. Think of it as PivotTable's on bulk steroids. The benefit you would see - the ability to select multiple data sources. This means you can have multiple data tables/sheets as your data source, and select their relationships. Think of it like an Access table/relationship. It's the best feature we've seen in Excel since the PivotTable itself.

So if you have 2010, this is good news. However, if you don't have 2010, we need to consolidate your data to a single data structure. Whether that is putting it all on one sheet, or exporting to Access, or whatever, that's what needs to happen.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean about not getting the row level structure. Is there any way you can post the file?

Hello VBA experts. Need your help. I have a workbook with 14 worksheets. Each worksheet has several fields all named the same. I need to sort 3 fields in each worksheet. Those are ascending in this order; Patient ID (in column A), DOS (in column E) and Code (column B).

Hi, All,

I am using Excel 2007 and have a table with 3 columns: StudentID, Test, and Score. StudentID is a number and Test and Score are text values -- score is sometimes a pass/fail and sometimes a number, so this is why this is text.

I use pivot tables all the time for numeric values. Is there a way to do this with text? What I am hoping to do is show StudentID as my row value, Test as my column value, and put the scores in the middle.

Thank you!

Here is my problem. I'm making a countdown timer in Excel. The process is working fine, but my problem is when I call my Sub to set the time at which I want the countdown to end, I receive the following error:
Run-time error '6':


Here is my code:

Dim TimerEnd as Date
Dim WorldPop as Integer 'This value is picked from my Excel worksheet

TimerEnd = Now() + ((1500 - (3 * WorldPop / 8)) / (60 * 60 * 24))

Note: WorldPop was tested and the value from the cell is really loaded because I was able to modify another cell value by assigning WorldPop value to it.

Basically, I store in TimerEnd the time at which I want the countdown to reach 0 (obtained by doing TimerEnd - Now() )

The 1st part of the expression:
(1500 - (3 * WorldPop / 8)) determines in how many seconds the timer should end

The 2nd part of the expression:
/ (60 * 60 * 24) divides the 1st expression to obtain the seconds in decimal value which is added to Now() to get the end time.

What I don't understand is that when I type this expression in a cell of my worksheet that have been formated as date:

Note: 850 is just a random number which I tested the result. It can be any number ranging from 0 to 2000

It gives me a valid time in the cell.

What am I doing wrong so that in the code of my subroutine it gives me Overflow?

So, I've been looking up the topic for quite a while and it's suddenly become critical to what I am doing. Everywhere I have looked, I see lots of ways to copy multiple sheets into one sheet. This doen't do me the least bit of good. I have two 70+ tab spreadsheets. One for actuals, one for forecast. I need to copy the actuals for the first 5 fiscal periods of the year into the Forecast file. As there are 70+ sheets, I would prefer not to do this one at a time. In know in the previous versions of Excel, I could simply highlight all the sheets, highlight the data I needed, hit copy, and paste the data in the new sheet. So long as the sheets were laid out the same, it was never a problem.

Do you have any idea how to do this now?

Thank you.

the formula I am using is =IIf(([Text45]*0.8)>=20,20,Int([Text45]*0.8)) because there is a 20 max on the calculation.

When 24.5 is put into text box 45 the new text box should say 19.6 but I cannot get it to calculate to the .6 it rounds down to 19 even.

I'm sure some of this problem is just my numbskull approach to how I've begun to develop and structure pivot tables in Excel 2000.

In pivot tables where you do (or don't) have page fields, but where you have a fairly small number of items that your want to variably select or filter, I know you can use the pulldown arrow and individually select the items that you want to include or exclude from your column or row results, using the checkboxes.

Is there any universal command that will allow you to comprehensively check or uncheck all the items under a row or column field, if say, you have 50 items, and you want to filter the results down to just one or two items? Again, you probably wouldn't have a situation like this with quite so many items being used in a data summary capacity, but I suppose it could happen and I just wanted to know if this capability was available in Excel.

I have a pivot table in Excel 2007 with grouped data based on the year and the quarter, so the date info looks like this:

Years Date
2009 Qtr1
2010 Qtr1
2011 Qtr1
(I know it's not really code but I didn't know how else to maintain the columns)
I have a chart based on this data but I need the dates (on the horizontal axis) to appear in a very specific format of Q109, Q209 and so on. Is there a way I can either alter what's in the pivot table to achieve this, could I use this data combined with the TEXT function somewhere else on my worksheet, or is there another workaround?

I have an Access database where the data is being input in Access and displayed by Lotus Notes. Originally I had a number of Yes/No fields e.g. "Outside Storage" in the table. The person doing the Notes interface requested that I change these to Text fields which I did. The table values remained as Yes or No when I did this. The input forms kept their check boxes when I did this but as one enters data via the checkboxes the values are 0 and -1. If I delete the field from the form and add it again it comes as a text box which then displays Yes or -1, etc depending what is in the table.
The Notes person says data tables should not contain Yes/No fields or Combo Boxes like solid/liquid. My question is what is the best way to handle this assuming the Notes developer wants text fields in the table? Should I delete all the checkboxes from the forms and replace with text boxes showing Yes or No? Right now I have the validation of the table set to accept yes, no, 0 or -1. Finally, is the field on the form able to be changed back to a checkbox without changing the table field back to a Yes/No field? It seems as if the type of field placed on the form is inherited from the table.

Hi there,
I have an MS Access database (2000, but primarily operating on PC with Access 2010). The database logs wagons coming to and from our site. Mostly, these wagons are in and out in the same day, but it is possible for them to park up overnight, for which we charge a small fee.

The situation has now changed slightly, in that we now accept wagons staying on site for longer periods (usually a weekend), so I've been asked to introduce an Exit Date field as well, and correct the existing calcualtion of time on spent site.

Currently, the following fields appear in the main table (called Stays):

Arrival Date
Arrival Time
Exit Time

There is also a field called Duration, which (for some reason) is autofilled by an Update Query, with the Update To value set to:

IIF([Arrival Time]>[Exit Time],1440+DateDiff("n",[Arrival Time],[Exit Time]),DateDiff("n",[Arrival Time],[Exit Time]))​

This is clearly inaccurate - it assumes that if a wagon's exit time is earlier in the day than its arrival time, then it must have stayed for 1440 minutes + the (negative) difference between the two times, and if the exit time is later or equal to the arrival time, the wagons has been in and out of site in the same day.

As wagons could be on site for multiple days (so the 1440 mins figure could be wrong) and could leave x amount of days plus x amount of minutes after arriving (so the assumption that it's exited the same day as it arrived could be wrong),... Read more

Hi good day
i have a workbook consisting of several sheets. each sheet depicts data for several critera related to that specific sheet (the row fields are the same across each sheet) which is further broken down into categories specific for that area. in the summary sheet which also share the same rows i should be able to select a category (from a dropdown) which will give me a summary of those fields in each category.
the headings for the categories on each sheet would be 1 to 100. for sheet 1(town1) - area 1, area 2, .., area4, sheet 2(town2) - area 5, area6, area7, and so on.
fields making up the rows for those headings are e.g apples, pears, oranges, etc
so the sheet displays how many of each item was sold in a specific area.
areas might overlap in town sheets as a salesperson from town1 might have sold an item in an area belonging to a different town.
the sheets are named by town (town 1, town 2, etc)
the summary sheet - i wish to see how many apples, pears, oranges was sold in a specific area across all the towns.
if i select say 'area 2' in the area dropdown, it will search across the sheets and display the totals of each of the items sold for area 2.
i have used the formula 'sumproduct' which works well but it only works if i have all 108 areas on each sheet. this is not viable as it opens the data up to errors. i wish to know is there a way if the user select an area as a heading then populate the corresponding item with the amount sold. tha...

For starters, after you run the routine you posted.
Go to one of the pivot tables, Record a new macro, name it PivotRefresh or whatever and refresh the data of the Pivot table, (Right Mouse button and refresh).
Stop the recorder

If you look at the code maybe you can use it so that after your macro has run, you write a routine to go through every sheet that has a pivot table or every pivto tabel in a sheet and have it run the code for each one.

I think this should do the trick and it's programmable.
Alternative, attach a sample so we / I can give it a shot.

I'm making a simple SELECT query in Access 2007, but I need to only select those records where one of the fields is LIKE the text entered into a text field on a form. Hitting a button next to the text field executes the query.

The problem is that when I "build" the criteria in the query, it doesn't seem to want to work when I throw in the wildcards around the field name. For instance, if I wanted to search for records with a field like "simple" then I'd put stars around simple inside the quotes like this "*simple*". That works perfectly fine. But if I try to make that criteria dynamic based on the text entered into the text entry box, it doesn't want to work: "*[Forms]![SearchForm]![SearchText]*" . It only works if I take out the stars and quotes: [Forms]![SearchForm]![SearchText].

I have an issue I have not been able to find an answer to, so I hope someone can help. I have a workbook, where there are many worksheets that i would like to consolidate into one sheet. The problem is I'm dealing with a lot of data. Each worksheet represents a day of the month, so there are 30-31 worksheets for each workbook.

Ultimately what i'm looking to acheive is to some how find a way to compile the date from all worksheets so i can do a quick search and pull from all the data from all the worksheets and see the results in one place. The search results would often find many results (hundreds even), and i still need to see all the data from those results from that row. I like the idea of using a pivot table, but once you use it for multiple sheets i cant get it to show the actual data.

A:Solved: Print multiple sheets in Excel workbook

Hi there!

Yes, you can print multiple worksheets. Just select the ones you want by clicking on the tabs at the bottom of each worksheet that you'd like (holding down Ctrl will let you select more than one, or Shift will select all sheets in between the first and last one that you click on). If you go to your Print dialog box, it should have the 'Active Sheets' radio button selected in the 'Print what' section. This will print every worksheet you've selected. Alternatively, you could select 'Entire workbook' to have every worksheet in the file print out.

Hope that helps!

I have a Microsoft Excel 2003 file that contains two spread-sheets. In one, I have a list of clients and a column next to each client name that I want to display the amount of money made from that particular client. Then, on the second spread-sheet I have a list of all credit and debits relating to the various clients. So, we might have received $100.00 from a client (and that would be in the credit column next to the client name), and then we may have spent $50.00 on that client (and that would be in the debit column next to the client name). So, obviously, the total amount made from that client would reflect the credit minus the debit.

Anyway, what I need is for the cell on the first spread-sheet that says the total made for that client to look at the second spread-sheet, look for any row that has that client's name and then adds the credits and subtracts the debits, then leaving the total back on the first spread-sheet.

I hope that makes sense. I have attached a demonstration to help, and I have also done the formula for the first client to show you what outcome I am looking for (although the formula is not what I want because it doesn't automatically add all of the rows from the second spread-sheet that share that client name).

Anyway, I hope I've explained it well enough and if anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it!

Ok...I know there is a simple way to do this but can't come up with it.

I would like to check multiple Combo Boxes (40) to see if the same value has been entered. In the example below it is "ClassEquivalent". (The same code would work for a NULL value) If the value is True then I would like to display a msgbox. I know that there is more simple code than this...and I only want one Message Box to be displayed if any of the Combo Boxes contain that value.

If Me.ComboBox1.value = "ClassEquivalent" Then
MsgBox("Please Fill in Type of Equivalent",vbcritical,"ERROR") =vbok
Me.LabelComboBox1.forecolor = 255
If Me.ComboBox2.value = "ClassEquivalent" Then
MsgBox("Please Fill in Type of Equivalent",vbcritical,"ERROR") =vbok
Me.LabelComboBox2.forecolor = 255

A:Solved: MS Access: Check Multiple Fields for One Value

There is a set of videos here that show you how to unlock and lock a group of controls, from a basic method setting each control individually, right up to using a class module that monitors the command button and takes action. I think you could adapt this code to work for your 40 Controls. The videos about the class module method are the videos numbered 5 6 and 7.

Hello all,
I have a db where I have a list of projects. The projects are separated into two tables with the first containing information about the client and a related table with information pertaining to the individual projects done for each client. This is a one to many relationship.

I am currently trying to establish a resume creator for my db where I would have an employee table which would be related to individual client's projects. My goal is to create a form that I can select what projects each employee worked on and give a report on all the information given in the client and project tables for the projects any particular employee worked on.

What I cannot figure out is how to relate the employee table. I can't do it to just the client table because the employee is not on every project the client has and I cannot relate it just to the project table because I need the client information in my report as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Using mixture of Windows XP with Office 2003 and Windows 7 with Office 2013 (so the database is in Office 2003 format).

We have a database showing companies that we have spoken to in regards to working with us. Each company will have shown interest in covering several postcode areas.

I have created a "Yes / No" (tick box) field for each postcode area ("AB", "AL", etc). A total of 121 fields.
I have also created a combo box "PostcodeFilter" which works from a table with all the Postcodes in (matching the 121 fields)

Google has brought up some code that works "On Exit" from the combo box that filters the records...

Me.Filter = "EquipmentID = '" & Me.ComboName & "'"
Me.FilterOn = True

This would look at a single field (in the example "EquipmentID") and filter where this equals what has been selected in the combo box.

What I need is that it would look at whichever field is named the same as selected in the combo box and filter where that field = Yes (ticked)

Example: Select "AB" in the combo box and it will filter the records to only show when the field "AB" is ticked.

Is this possible?


A:Solved: Access: Filter using Combo box and multiple fields

This is not quite as straight forward as the Google example because you have to convert the combo selection to a field name.
I had the code to do this a few years ago, but I don't think I do now.
I will see if I can recreate it.

My pivot graph X axis won't change it's date format. I've tried changing the raw data format, data format in the pivot table but when I try to change the graph data format it will not change. I looked the date choices and it seems like no matter what I do the pivot table will not change the date format! HELP!

The pivot date is suck in format
Saturday, July 07, 2007

I want it to be
07/07/2007 or anything but what is above!

A:Pivot Graph won't change Date Format

Click on a cell in your original data and see what it says in the formula bar at the top. Even though a cell reads, for instance, Sunday, July 01, 2007, if it is just formatting, it should read 7/1/2007 in the formula bar. If it does not (and I suspect yours will not), then the problem needs to be addressed there, in the original data. A pivot table graph takes the data that is there and displays that.
If that proves to be the case, do the following (this assumes your dates are in column A).
Highlight your column of dates, go to data, Text to columns, Delimited, put a check in commas.(BEWARE!! Text to columns will write over any other data, and this will write to 3 columns, so insert blank columns - extras don't usually hurt - after your dates and before any other data)!!!
The data will split out as Saturday|July 07| 2007 (where | indicates a new cell). Insert a new column between July 07 and 2007. Highlight the column with July 07 in it and go to data, Text to columns, delimited by spaces. Now you will have your data in 4 columns - day, month, day and year. Delete the column with the day (if you can) so the data is in columns A-C.
In the 4th column over (D, I am assuming), enter the following formula:
=CONCATENATE(A1," 0",B1,", ",C1) and drag it down next to your date columns.
(If you can't delete the days, it would be B1, C1, and D1, etc.) This will give you data that looks like July 01, 2007. In the next column over, enter this formula:
=DATE... Read more

I have a table of people data with multiple fields for the name: Prefix (Mr., Mrs., etc.), FirstName, MiddleName, LastName and Suffix (Sr., Jr., etc.). All fields are required except MiddleName and Suffix which often don't exist. I want to make this set of fields a multi-field unique index to prevent duplicate entries, and I have created the index with properties as follows: Primary=No (I already have an autonumber primary index), Unique=Yes, and Inglore Nulls=No. But the Suffix field is giving me trouble when it is blank as it often is. If a value is entered in this field (as with any other field) I am properly prevented from creating another record with the same values in the corresponding name fields, including this Suffix field. But if the Suffix field is blank/null (most are, because only a few people use a suffix on their names) I need that null value to be treated as a value for the purposes of determining uniqueness. Mr. Joe S. Blow should be the same as Mr. Joe S. Blow when both are missing a Suffix value, and I want the database to treat those names as the same, and prevent input of the second of them because one has already been entered.

As I understand it from Access Help, setting the index property Ignore Nulls=No should accomplish this. I understood this setting to mean that uniqueness is then determined on the remaining index fields, as though Null were being treated as a value for the purposes of testing uniqueness. That isn't the case. It lets me e... Read more

Hello Excel Experts. I've been visiting this forum often and appreciate the help recieved. Got one that seems fairly simple but I can't pin it. Here's the deal, I have a pivot table that has 4 columns. In the Row label field, I have a "Date received" field with dates. In the Values field I have "count of date received" and below that "count of date completed". Then I have a calculated field that divides those two fields to come up with Percent Complete. So ideally, date recieved should have an equal amount of date completed (or 100%).

What I'm looking to do is identify the OLDEST date IF the Percent Complete is less than 90%. There can be multiple dates that are less than 90% complete in the Row Label, but I just want to list the oldest date. This way I can use a "datedIF" statement which tells me how much of a backlog by days I have. I'll attach a sample of table. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A predecessor designed a database that stores a text field that the end user fills with a date, like "Monday, August 13, 2007". Now of course the end user wants to sort the output by date (previously events were entered in date order so that retrieving alread had things in order). The web page that hits the database is written in VB Script under ASP. I'm looking for a function that can sort these dates either within the SQL query or afterwards in VB Script. I could kludge something together, but I'd prefer something elegant.

My current SQL query:

strSQL = "SELECT Event, EventDate FROM AcademicCalendar ORDER BY EventID;"

where EventDate is a text field (not a true SQL date field).

Thanks in advance!

A:Solved: Sorting text string as date in SQL/VBScript

I solved this one on my own. Probably far from the most elegant, but this is what I did:

The overall strategy is to pull the records from the database into a new array. That array consists of the fields I'm interested in plus an additional column that is a sortable date. That new date column has be be constructed from the text field in my database that contains a date as described in my original post. I use VBScript's regular expressions to extract the date portion of the text field then convert it to a useable date using CDate. Then the whole array is sorted on the new CDate field before showing the results.

First, I query the database and retrieve the recordset into oRS. The recordset has a forward-only cursor so I use the method described here to count the records to set up my array size. Note the need to use the .MoveFirst method to move back to the beginning of the record set.

The key to sorting is the function at the end (QuickSort). That function was "borrowed" from here.

Dim regEx, strMatchDate, arrResults()
arrTemp = oRS.GetRows()
intRecordCount = UBound(arrTemp,2)
ReDim arrResults(intRecordCount,4) ' I have 4 field to display
Set regEx = New RegExp
With regEx
.Global = False
.IgnoreCase = True
.Pattern = "[a-z]+\s[0-9]+,\s[0-9]{4}" ' matches on pattern Month Date, Year
End With

I've downloaded UK bank files to Excel, and need to change all dates to US format (12/6/2012 to 6/12/2012), with their corresponding text & numbers columns, and then sort top to bottom (oldest to newest), rather than how they came in (newest to oldest) to complete 2 yr. accounting summary. Excel 2007 on Windows 7 laptop.

Thanks much, guys! Jillian

I've included a sample of the columns from Excel sheet. As you can see, there are 5 columns, (oops maybe it won't show as cols) so all corresponding info has to move with the date, when I sort earliest to latest, after changing format for the 2 yrs I have to do. The format options given did not work, even tho' it IS indate format, not text, but when importing, it was already imported as US, not UK. Need to change. Not sure how to set that up, and have all info follow on corresponding cols. Thanks.
