GetPivotData - Multiple Data Values

Posted on 2013-11-06

With Excel 2003, I've got a pivot table with 3 columns and 11 rows of averaged values.
Image of multiple values in the pivot table.

I'm having a problem calling up these values in a getpivotdata statement.

=GETPIVOTDATA("Totals",$A$12,"AreaName","EASTERN","Average of SINCE_SUBMITTED")
or even
=GETPIVOTDATA("Totals",$A$12,"WellWorkTypeDesc","Abandon - Permanent Plug", "Average of SINCE_SUBMITTED")

How do I call up these values individually?

Resolved.

For those who encounter same...

correct formula is =GETPIVOTDATA("Average of SINCE_SUBMITTED",$A$12,"AreaName","EASTERN","WellWorkTypeDesc","Abandon - Permanent Plug"

I had to create a seperate pivot table for the Wellwork Type as it was the 3rd column and for some reason it wasn't getting a grand total or even subtotals. That's a problem for another day.

For calling up data by an area or asset name also though, I had to use the name of the data value instead of the table name itself leading into the GetPivotData funciton.
