Adding information to a Pivot Table


B

Bill

All,

I created a forecast pivot table that looks like:

Project owner Client Project Rule name % Used Backlog Type
Backlog Action Plan Progress Update Oct-2006 ($) Nov-2006 ($)
Dec-2006 ($) Total January February March April
Where I need to be able to make the January, February,
March.........columns accept input on the pivot table. When an
attempt is made to enter any data, the entire column assumes the same
value as the input value in a single cell. Is there any way to allow
separate data entry in each cell?

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Bill

Not exactly sure what you mean here.
You cannot enter data directly onto a Pivot Table, you can only enter or
amend data in the source data table which upon Refresh will be reflected
in the PT itself.

Post back with a bit more detail and maybe we can help you.

Roger,

Thanks for the reply. I have attached the spreadsheet. I am allowed
to put entries in the Jan through Decr cells on the pivot table but
any entry causes the entire column to assume the same value. I would
like to know if I can enter discrete data in each cell.

Thanks.

From my perspective, fortuitously you didn't post any attachment and should
not. You can send it directly to Roger if he is interested. Contact him
and ask.

All,

I didn't realize that we shouldn't attach files to this site. Anyway,
here is an extraction from the spreadsheet:

Assigned Team Client Project Project owner Revenue or Billing
Rule name Rule description % Used Jan Feb Mar
Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
Total
Team A Test 1010 Test Invoice 1010 Test, Person 8 Revenue
Rule 1010 Rule Description 1010 0 1 34 5676 787

Rule 1105 Rule Description 1105 0 1 34 5676 787
88 4 6 78 34 56 23 56 4000


The problem I am facing is that any entry that I make in a cell on the
pivot table for Jan through Dec assumes the same value for the entire
column. Is there a way to enter data in each cell (on the pivot
table) from Jan through Dec and keep that data discrete to that cell
so that I might use it for data entry?

Thanks.

Hi Bill

It's difficult to see the data in this form.
If you want to mail me a copy of the sheet direct, I will take a look.
Please remove NOSPAM from my email address to send.
