Using Cell Text to Filter PivotTables - Excel Programming. Sometimes it would be useful to be able to use cells to select items in a PivotTable.

Using Cell Text to Filter PivotTables - Excel Programming

For example, let's say we have a PivotTable containing a field called Region. Instead of using the filter dropdown to select the region from a list it would be nice if we could use a cell to specify the region. That way, the user could just type a region, such as Europe, into a cell and the PivotTable would only show data for Europe. In this post, I'll present some VBA code that does just this. Let's take an example. We have a PivotTable based on some census data in our workbook.

We then want to filter this data by region. But let's say that, instead of using the filter dropdown, we want the PivotTable to get the region selection from a specific cell. To do this, we need to do two things: Detect when the user has entered a value into the cell;Update the Region PivotField object with the value of the cell; To detect when RegionFilterRange has changed, we handle the Workbook.SheetChange event.

To do this, you can call the StrReverse() function. Its syntax is: Function StrReverse(ByVal Expression As String) As String This function takes as argument the string that needs to be reversed. After performing its operation, the function returns a new string made of characters in reverse order. Sub Exercise() Dim StrValue As String Dim StrRev As String StrValue = "République d'Afrique du Sud" StrRev = StrReverse(StrValue) ActiveCell = StrValue & vbCrLf & StrRev End Sub Because the StrReverse() function returns a string, you can write it as StrReverse$.

The simplest string is probably one that you declared and initialized. To remove all empty spaces from the left side of a string, you can call the LTrim() function. Function LTrim(ByVal str As String) As String To remove all empty spaces from the right side of a string, you can call the RTrim() function. This would produce: Vbhelp_guide2011.
