Excel/Pivot table help


Hi Bob,

I am trying to get the variance between two time series in "Update" Sheet, which is based on "Planning View" sheet data.

What I want to do is to just show the various values not non-variance once. If there is no variance (0) in any month, that data should not be shown.


Please note user keep selecting data from Groups/Sources.Let me know if you have any question.


Sorry - I don't know what you're looking for. Your PT shows 4 time series, not 2, so which ones do you want to take the variance on?
It'd be easier to communicate via email - I'm at bobumlas@hotmail.com
Perhaps you could mock up an example of what you'd like to see.
Please use subject of "AllExpertsQ"
