I have a spreadsheet where I download company production data from 2 sources. I use pivot tables to extract production data (Produced, Scrap, types of scrap, etc.) I have charts that uses GETPIVOTDATA formulas to get specific information about a part. I need to combine results from the 2 pivot tables. (scrap data from our plant + scrap data from another plant). It is the same part numbers, just different stages of the process. The fields of the pivot tables are exactly the same. (Filter =scrap, Column=TDATE-Month, Rows = 5digitnumber and Cshift, Sum of values = TRQTY ( which means transaction quantity). Example of a formula using one pivot table is: IFERROR(GETPIVOTDATA("TRQTY",'01 - Data Sheets'!$F$5,"5DigitJobNumber",08845,"CSHIFT",1),0). $F$5 is the pivot table location, and 08845 is the 5digitnumber of the part, and Cshift is the shift producing the production/scrap. How can I add another pivot table location $P$5 to this formula to get 1 result. Example of some of the results of formulas:

i couldnt follow a lot of that but in answer to your question it should be fine using GETPIVOTDATA for multiple tables in one formula. if you have trouble typing out the GETPIVOTDATA bits, just click on cells inside your pivot table when typing out the formula and it should generate it automatically. just make sure generate getpivotdata is on by clicking anywhere on your pivot table, going to the analyse tab, options and check the generate getpivotdata button

If the two sources are generating the same data fields, you should look into using the Get and Transform feature to bring all the data/both tables into a single table that you can create your Pivot Table from.
