Question about Microsoft Excel for PC
When I have a pivot table it has certain numbers I want to grab. If I link to a cell within the pivot table it uses text to search for the data in the pivot table. A2 =GETPIVOTDATA("P/S",Sales!$A$3,"Sales Categories","Range < 50")
Rather than use "Range < 50" I want to grab text from another cell (say B2= "Range < 40") to make the model more dynamic. However the get formula searches by text and not the cell link. What I want is something like this A2 =GETPIVOTDATA("P/S",Sales!$A$3,"Sales Categories",&B2) but unfortunately this does not work.
Do you know how to get around this issue?

This problem arose from Excel Verson 2003 onwards - It does not appear in a sum function where the range is greater than one cell.
The easiest solution is to manually linking the cell in your formula and typing in the cell reference rather than looking it up

Tips for a great answer:
Formulas are used to specify calculations based on values in designated cells. Excel supports basic calculations as well as statistical, trigonometric and other specialized functions.
