Hi newbie to pivotpower question. I have lots of small tables with 4-5 rows to lookup data using the relate function. In excel i could put all of these on one sheet called "input" and just point each vlookup to the right range. With pivotpower do I need to make each range a seperate table? Just going to make my pivotpower window very cluttered with tiny tables.

This is a sort related question. Many of my vlookups use the "true" function because I am looking to bucket the data. For example i have the hour a transaction happned and want to group these AM, PM, Evening. In excel I just use a table so that 11 gets matched to AM.

0 Evening
8 AM
13 PM
19 Evening

I can see 3 choices since i understand the relate function is an exact match like "false"

  1. Write some complex calculation
  2. Write my table out in full with every hour listed
  3. Is there any clever function for bucketing answers already in pivotpower?
Apprecaite any advice before I get too deep into this
