View Full Version : Pivot Table and Chart - Specific Row Grouping

2016-10-10, 02:35 PM
Hi there,

I need for my annual reporting create a graph of the Distribution of the agegroups of people attending our
Our fundraiser wants to know how many people attend in following specific age groups: < 25 years, 26 - 30 years, 31 - 45 years, 45+.
A bit strange but he specificly asked for this.

I tried with attached excel example using grouping in pivot tables but one can only define fixed grouping,
unlike what i want.
Can anyone help me create a graph the with the specific agegroups like in the attached jpg?
Not sure if it needqs to be done with pivot table/chart ... but cannot get it to work with the normal excel graphing either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx heaps

You'll find in the attached file a solution by using the frequency in-built function. (Due to external data source errors, the ages are not the same).

Hope that will help you

Thannkx! Simple but effective ... didn't know about the frequency function.
Now extra problem ... what if only filtered (using autofilter) values are to be counted?
