I am using excel 2010. I am trying to create pivot table between two worksheets 'Summary' and 'Summary2'. I have identical row of data ranging from cells B5 to F5 in row 5 in both worksheets. Data in the two worksheets looks like this:
Summary worksheet: Issues,20,3,4,5
Summary2 worksheet: Issues,10,0,3,9
Worksheet referes to issues from location 1 and worksheet referes to issues from location 2. Col B has title 'issues', Col C refers to issues of customer 1, Col D refers to issues of customer 2, Col E refers to issues of customer 3, Col F refers to issues of customer 4
I go to a third worksheet and start pivot table and in the table range I give this: 'Summary:Summary2'!$B$5:$F$5. Then I Say OK. Gives error "data reference source is not valid". Can someone tell me how to select the row from two different worksheet in pivot table?
Also I want to be able to add issues of customers between two locations and get % completion for each locaiton.
Can someone please help?

Thnak you all. I got it working. Is there a way pivot table can compare each individual results with the grand totals. Example if I am tracking issues dealt with different groups, I want to find the % of work completed with each group with respect to totals. How can I do this?

Also is there a way I can have one pivot table that tracks planned work. Another pivot table that tracks actual completed work. Then can I compare the planned work with actual work, using the two pivot tables.
