hi,

I am currently working on an excel file that I created (version 14.0.7106.5003 32bit, office pro plus 10 pack) and am having a big problem with my PivotTable.

The PivotTable is on the "EDIT" sheet and refers to the table in sheet "base".
filtering the report "CLIENT" appears inconsistent values.
Example: If I filter "CLIENT" with "VALLAURIS - ANTIBES COMPTABILITE GESTION" result displays the "CLIENT" with "SAEC".
Update the PivotTable does not solve the problem and this problem is present on several filter "CLIENT".

Can you help me find the origin of the problem and explain how to solve it?

Regards,
TORRENTE Richard

It's hard to understand your problem with seeing a sample workbook.

I don't have access to 2010, but I can check if the same thing occurs in 2013 or if you are filtering incorrectly.  

Please attach a workbook (you should remove/replace confidential information).

hi,

thank you for your answer, I think it comes close to the solution :)
I started to make your manipulations but an error appears when I indicate the source of the list created (the source is recognized as erroneous).

I joined you the steps I did.

In your ListeCliente formula, the last comma before the 1 should be a semi colon ( ; )

also, what is NBVAL?

I'm a french and so in french command "COUNTA" is "NBVALL".
I just changed the command "OFFSET" with "DECALER" and the semicolon, it works!
thank you!

can you help me with one last detail please?
the result of my pivottable contains cells "(blank)", how to make the cell remains blank?
On after my research, it is possible to make them disappear thanks to several method did not work for me:
- "setting conditional form" with white font if = "(empty)"
-option pivottable -> for empty cells show: nothing

Is it possible to display the sign "€" after the result of each line for columns D, F and I?

Does this work?

In one of the (vide) cells, enter a space.  All the others should change to blanks.


to add the "€", you would need to format that field in the Pivot table as Currency.

hi,

The filter pivottable seems more stable, without error.

adding a single space solved the problem of (empty), thank you.

I select the column at the pivottable, I go "cell format" and I selected the "Currency" mode.
the problem is that the currency mode does not rest when I change the filter so "€" disappears.
At the source of the "Base" sheet, I have set the same currency option.

EDIT :
I found a solution to solve this problem format.
I continue to supplement my table and I watch if the problem recurs on the pivottable, otherwise I closing the ticket.

regards

hi,

the problem is again present.
I joined you the latest version.
you can see the problem for example on the CLIENT "CPECF - Etang de Berre" which does not match the source table.
