Don't see a link to upload file

Expert:  John D replied 1 year ago.

You can go to http://www.wikisend.com/ and upload the file using the Browse button (no need to signup) then copy the "File ID" number (or the download link) that you will be given and paste it here in your reply.

 

If the file has sensitive information let me know before you upload it

I am trying to create a pivot table from the tabs "AP-Deo & BS Data Pull" and "Remaining Old Spice Body Sprays". The column headers on both tabs are exactly the same and I want to have all those headers available in my pivot table. Thanks!

Ok will review and get back to you if I need any clarification

Thanks.

Expert:  John D replied 1 year ago.

File cannot be opened. Also it's a rather huge, Can you send me a more workable version with only the issue in question, and make sure you try to download it yourself to make it sure it works


Thanks

Expert:  John D replied 1 year ago.

Ok here you go

- First select all the data in sheet 2 starting from row 2 (i.e.A2:P24)
- Apply Copy
- Got the sheet 1 and select first empty cell (i.e.cell A33)
- Apply "Paste Special" > Values
- While on sheet 1 click the Insert tab, then click the Pivot Table button
- Make sure the Table Source field has this range "Sheet1!$A$1:$P$55"
- Rename sheet1 to 'Combined'
- Rename the new pivot table sheet to 'Pivot Table'

Now you can select the desired fields that you need to include in the Pivot Table

Hope this is ok. Let me know if you have any questions
