Can’t figure out how to show the diverting arrows for NOT EQUAL…

=IF(RELATED(‘Of Interest’[Selected]) ‘NOT EQUAL’ BLANK(),”TARGETED”,”OTHER”)

Kasper, We need a better way of posting formulas and sample tables for this blog.

Trying some escape slashes…

=IF(RELATED(‘Of Interest’[Selected])BLANK(),”TARGETED”,”OTHER”)

Add a pivot to show the values for companies, and then use a dynamic formula as a Defined Name to get the values from the pivot for the Data Validation list: =OFFSET(Sheet2!$A$1,1,0,COUNTA(Sheet2!$A:$A)-1,1) You can use the pivot to filter the list of choices.

Try this.

You could use a separate linked table (With just your targeted companies in it – so it would be easy to modify), and then this formula would work in the full table listing all companies…

=IF(RELATED(Table2[Selected])BLANK(),”TARGETED”,”OTHER”)

Rename the calculated column to TARGET_GROUP, then just put TARGET_GROUP on ROWS.

Don’t forget the relationship from the main list of companies, to your TARGET LIST of companies table.

What’s the best formula to use for multiple companies? IF or is there some other formula which allows me to define a group based on an array where I list the companies?

Sure, you can do that by just creating a calculated column identifying the “chosen” companies in the COMPANY (like a 0/1, TRUE/FALSE, or “PREFERRED/OTHER” value pair) Then, you just drop that field onto the ROW position for your pivot table.

I am looking to do the following.

I have a list of say 1000 companies. From here I want to be able to select 10 companies (select by name) and then group the data into two sets. The 10 companies and everything else. When I report in pivot I just want to report with two lines.

Is this possible?

I’m still working on getting the other pieces, but getting the measures so easily was a huge help.
