Sum, Average, Count, Min, Max, and More


So far, every example in this chapter has involved summing data. It is also possible to get an average, minimum, or maximum of data. In VBA, change the Function property of the data field and give the data field a unique name. For example, the following code fragment produces five different summaries of the quantity field, each with a unique name:

     ' Set up the data fields     With PT.PivotFields("Revenue")         .Orientation = xlDataField         .Function = xlSum         .Position = 1         .NumberFormat = "#,##0,K"         .Name = "Total Revenue"     End With     With PT.PivotFields("Revenue")         .Orientation = xlDataField         .Function = xlCount         .Position = 2         .NumberFormat = "#,##0"         .Name = "Number Orders"     End With     With PT.PivotFields("Revenue")         .Orientation = xlDataField         .Function = xlAverage         .Position = 3         .NumberFormat = "#,##0"         .Name = "Average Revenue"     End With     With PT.PivotFields("Revenue")         .Orientation = xlDataField         .Function = xlMin         .Position = 4         .NumberFormat = "#,##0"         .Name = "Smallest Order"     End With     With PT.PivotFields("Revenue")         .Orientation = xlDataField         .Function = xlMax         .Position = 5         .NumberFormat = "#,##0"         .Name = "Largest Order"     End With 

The resultant pivot table provides a number of statistics about the average revenue, largest order, smallest order, and so on.
