    Excel Pivot table based on dynamic column labels

    Giuseppe Uleri


      following the instructions on NPrinting help https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/17.2/Content/ExcelReports/HowCreatePivotTableExcelTableColumns/Pivot-table-Excel.htm?_ga=2.98079007.1091868254.1507558724-1187855711.1490870490


      it's easy to create Excel pivot tables based on QlikView straight table data but I cannot figure out how to achieve the same result when source data includes dynamic column labels (i.e. text and variables/formula concatenated)


      For example, whit a table like that transformed in Excel table and then summarized:

      CustomerSales <YEAR>
      Customer 1100
      Customer 210
      Customer 35


      I end up with an Empty Excel pivot table since column name has changed, i.e. "Sales 2017", and Excel is not able to automatically add it to the pivot since it references objects by name.


      Is there any way to achieve that in NPrinting 17.5?
