Learn How to Create a Dynamic Pivot Table in Excel

We can create a dynamic Pivot Table in Excel by copying and pasting a new set of data directly below the data table. Afterward, we will refresh the Pivot Table to include the new data. This is better than the OFFSET function used in earlier Excel versions. The steps below will walk through the process.

I need help fixing a Formula on Sheet 2, starting in Column G Row 22. In short, the formula should average the last six dollar amounts unless one of the last 6 dollar amounts is blank or 0. G56 on the same sheet works with the same logic but for only 3 months.

Hello! There is a column with a certain number of rows in it. I need to calculate two averages: the average of every second row starting from the 1st one (aka the average of every odd-th cell) and the average of every second row starting from the 2nd one (aka the average of every even-th cell). I got tangled up with =OFFSET... Thanks!

I'm trying to use offset in a match function. My table is pulling data from a different tab called "operator runs". I want my first row to look at data in B1:B104 for "sample-A" and match "BA" from C1:C104 to pull data from column D. My second row, I want to look up text from F1:F104 and match "BA" from G1:G104 and pull data from column H and so on, offset by 4 columns to the right each time. This is my current function. I don't know how to implement the offset function in this complicated function. =MATCH(1,('Operator runs'!$B$1:$B$104="Sample-A")*('Operator runs'!$C$1:$C$104="BA"),0)

I'm looking to offset from =today(), for example: If cell A13=today(), display cell A20. If cell B13=today(), display cell B20. If cell C13=today(), display cell C20. I want to do this for 365 rows. Is there a simpler way of doing this than a huge nested IF statement?

Hi, I need a formula to work out how many values are less than a certain time value, simple "countif" do not work as it is a filtered spreadsheet. Here's the formula that I have got so far: SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(Current_Month!N$2:N$10000,ROW(Current_Month!N$2:N$10000)-MIN(ROW(Current_Month!N$2:N$10000)),,1)),--(Current_Month!N$2:N$10000>"24:0:0")
