How to change multiple field settings in pivot table?
When you create a pivot table in a worksheet, after dragging the fields to the Values list in the PivotTable Field List, you may get all the same Count function as following screenshot shown. But now, you want the Sum of function to replace the Count of function at once, how could you change the calculation of multiple pivot table fields at once in Excel?
In Excel, you can change the calculation of the field settings by changing the function one by one in the Value Field Settings dialog, please do as this:
1. Select a field in the Values area for which you want to change the summary function in the pivot table, and right click to choose Value Field Settings, see screenshot:
2. Then in the Value Field Settings dialog box, select one type of calculate which you want to use under the Summarize Value By tab, see screenshot:
3. And then click OK to close this dialog, and you can see your Count function has been changed to Sum function, see screenshot:
4. Repeat the above steps to change other fields’ calculation settings one by one.
Note: You can also change the field settings by right click one field cell and choose Summarize Values by and select one calculation you need from context menus.
The above method will be time consuming and tedious if there are lots of field calculations needed to be changed, here, I can introduce you a code to change multiple filed settings at the same time.
1. Click any cell in your pivot table.
2. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
3. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.
