EE-Future-Payments.xlsxHi, I wonder if you can help and if this is possible?  

I have a table in Excel (data based on an SQL connection) which shows organisations, total amount awarded and individual payments due per year (eg 2012, 2013, 2014 etc). (The individual payments add up to the amount awarded) Currently the organisation is repeated in the left column depending on how many payments are made to that organisation.

I'm wondering if possible to run something (VB program?) in Excel that will produce a table where there is one line per organisation and the payments speadout along columns with budget headings 2012, 2013, 2014 etc.

I have attached a spreadsheet:
Sheet 'Original' is the source data and sheet 'Wanted' is the structure of the required table,  I hope this makes sense.

Many thanks, Rob

please check if something like this (attachment) is sufficient for you (pivot table, not VBA) or not

Hi Helpfinder,

Many thanks for this.  This is close but if possible would like to see against each payment in the budget year, the payment date and the payment description.

Also the decision date against the award amount (one award and decision date per organisation)

best wishes, Rob

Hi Helpfinder,

Thanks for this but I may have confused you a little.  With regard to The 'Wanted' sheet, columns B + C (Award + Decision Date) are not in a budget year.  They are just in there
own columns just after thye organisation name.

The values under each budget year should be Amount(column D), Date(Column E) and Description(column F) and then repeated for subsequent years.  I guess this may not be possible?

I added "Award" values to pivot rows (so iz is not exactly as you have it on the /wanted" sheet).
But this Description column I am not able to add with appropriate values for you into this pivot. Maybe somebody else, or using VBA which I am not able to do.
