Hi Experts Excel 2007

I am using the following formula =IFERROR(INDEX(J:j,MATCH(B1,C:C,0)) +INDEX(J:j,MATCH(B1,D:D,0)) +INDEX(J:j,MATCH(B1,H:H,0)),"")

How every the formula sometime does not read the data from the pivot table if the order of the data changes....looking to make this dynamic
             01.01.2014.        02.01.2014.       03.01.2014.      04.01.2014.       05.01.2014

Ok here's a more realistic index match formula...

=IFERROR(INDEX('Pivot '!$B$3:$AZ$14,MATCH($A$154,'Pivot '!$B$3:$B$14,0),MATCH(D152,'Pivot '!$B$2:$AZ$2))+
INDEX('Pivot '!$B$3:$AZ$14,MATCH($A$155,'Pivot '!$B$3:$B$14,0),MATCH(D152,'Pivot '!$B$2:$AZ$2))+ INDEX('Pivot '!$B$3:$AZ$14,MATCH($A$156,'Pivot '!$B$3:$B$14,0),MATCH(D152,'Pivot '!$B$2:$AZ$2)),"")

Hi,

Not all your match functions have a matchtype 0, it assumes MatchType 1( thus the data being in ascending order)

You can also use GETPIVOTDATA function.

To see the syntax, type = in a cell and then select a value from within the pivot. Press enter, the selection criteria for the pivot data will be hardcoded in the formula but can be changed to cell references containing the pivot field name and the pivot field value.

Thanks
Rob

Or, extract the result you want from the source data rather than the pivot using SUMIFS function.
