Recalculate Crosstab Doesn't Work If Row/Column Headers Change

Last reviewed: September 12, 1996
Article ID: Q103632

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 4.0, 4.0a
  • Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, versions 4.0

Page 351 of the "User's Guide 1," states that when you add, delete, or change records in your database, you can recalculate the crosstab table to reflect these changes. However, this information may not always be correct. Under certain conditions, you may not be able to recalculate a crosstab table to reflect changes when you add, delete, or change records in your database.

Because the Recalculate Current Crosstab option uses the current row and column headers, and will only recalculate the value fields, the Crosstab ReportWizard can recalculate your crosstab only when you make minor changes to the value field entries.

If you make changes to the fields used as the row and column headers (for example, if you add or remove values), then you will need to modify the current crosstab. To modify the current crosstab, choose Crosstab from the Data menu and select the Modify Current Crosstab button from the Crosstab ReportWizard; finally choose the >> button and choose the Create It button.
