As I understand, in Excel 2010 (Windows), you cannot delete a table using the Names Manager. Your only option here is to pick any cell or select the existing table name (eg Table1, Table2, Table3, etc.) and convert the table back to a range. One you have done this, the table will disappear from the names manager. Then you can go ahead and create a new table. answered Apr 8, 2014 at 7:30 If the Tools features are not enabled, check to see if there are two (or more) tables on the same tab. Excel will disable the ability to delete a column if there is more than one table, but you can delete the cells in each table one at a time. answered Dec 30, 2016 at 19:15
How do I Unpivot a table in Excel?
Unpivot Data Using Power Query – Here are the steps to unpivot data using Power Query: (If your data is already in an Excel Table, start from step 6 onwards)
- Select any cell in the dataset.
- Go to the Insert Tab.
- Click on the Table icon.
- In the ‘Create Table’ dialog box, make sure the range is correct. You can modify the range if needed.
- Click OK. This will convert your tabular data into an Excel table.
- With any cell selected in the Excel Table, click on the Data tab.
- In the Get & Transform data group, click on the ‘From Table/Range’ icon.
- In the Create Table dialog box that opens (if it opens), click on OK. This will open the Query Editor using the Excel Table data.
- In the Query editor, right-click on the Region column.
- Click on ‘Unpivot Other Columns’ option. This will instantly unpivot your data.
- Change the name of the ‘Attribute’ column to a more meaningful name, such as ‘Months’.
- Once you have the Unpivoted data, it’s a good practice to make sure the data types are all correct. In this example, click on one cell for each column and see the data type in the Transform tab. If needed, you can change the data type as well.
- (Optional) Change the name of your query to ‘Sales’.
- Go to the Home tab (in the query editor).
- Click on Close and Load.
The above steps would unpivot your data set using Power Query and put in back in Excel as a Table in a new worksheet. Now you can use this data to create different views using a Pivot table. For example, you can check the total sale value by month or by region.
