Or select the option to turn off the getpivotdata formula.


Click on the pivot table. Click the analyze tab.... me too!


Type the cell references in manually will work on a lot of cases



Or rebuild the pivot with formulas

Welcome to the wild and weird world of Chicago


How to evaluate 0.01% ownership of a startup? Let’s say their “equity component” is 0.01 of a series B ($130M funding) startup, then that’s $100k even if their valuation is $1B. For my equity to be worth anything, what it’ll take is for the series B startup to grow to $10B valuation and actually able to fetch that valuation in an IPO (so it’s not just over-valued private stock). Even Notion is just $10B valuation and probably overvalued. So, isn’t this 0.01% ownership thing ridiculous?

Was just told I’ll be making just over 200k TC at EOY promotion. Position has a lot of upward mobility potential in coming years. I’ve been here a few years with consistent high ratings. However, I’m concerned I may not be learning as much as I could. Plus, I may find similar or higher pay elsewhere. Any tips for evaluating? I’ll be 27 at promo.

Hello Everyone,
I would like to create a schedule for all of my clients. Let’s say I have platinum, gold clients etc. What would be the best way for me to schedule a call for them based on their profile of gold or platinum? For example, I would start scheduling a call every month for my top clients, then a call every quarter for other categories… I need to track the data, and make sure employees are calling them… something that would alert my employees to call such clients. Thanks!
