Hi everyone,

I'm struggling with a problem for quite some time now and haven't found a good solution for it yet. Already checked a lot of excel tutorials.

I've made an excel workbook for all my expenses (and incomes) and made a pivot table to have a nice overview per month. But sometimes I have to pay - for example - my insurance for a whole year in once. Now I want it to show in the pivot table as a monthly expense spread over all months equally without having to manually divide my source data into 12 different rows each containing 1/12 of the total cost and all linked to another month.
I would like to say to the pivot table like: IF month = empty, than divide costs by 12 and link to every month... or something like this.

Anyone an idea who to solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Hi. I believe you would have to do it within your data before passing it to the pivot.
