I've got a workbook with a several pivot tables. For convenience, I've deleted the pivot table source and left the pivots "self-standing". Problem is now when I try to refresh the workbook, I get a "Reference is not valid" error which prevents the workbook from updating.
I've referenced a few threads this one in particular [Solved] Pivot Tables : Refresh on protected sheet
I've tried the example given in the link and it still does not work. I want to protect the sheets that contain pivot tables, but still be able to refresh them. When I try I get an error. I've tried this a few ways.
My first attempt was to protect the sheets using allowuserinterfaceonly at a workbook open event. This caused warnings as soon as the workbook was opened. Then I tried Dave's suggestion and I get a runtime error 1004: Cannot edit PivotTable on protected sheet.
Trying to create a basic pivot table from a CSV file for our users. What I've done in the past is open my CSV and then take the option Insert > Pivot Table to create the pivot table from the open CSV/worksheet. My question here is .... how can I save this .XLS and refresh the CSV data within? Or do I need to use an external data source? I don't want to have to use any drivers. I'd love to be able to just point to a CSV or TXT file on our server and that be that.
For something else I have used Web Query strings to point to .php scripts that send back data in XML format. Is this an option?
Again, the goal is for me to create a pivot table and just have our user's open it up and have current/refreshed data within. We can run jobs overnight or on-demand that update the data source.
I have a workbook containing many pivot tables. When I create a pivot table everything works fine. When I close the workbook, reopen it, and refresh the pivot table, the new data will appear at the bottom of the table instead of being inserted in the proper row in the table. Since the table is no longer in sequential order my VLOOKUP functions don't work properly. What do I need to do to get the already established pivot table to refresh properly?
I have some code that runs and loops through each pivot table to refresh it; however, I remmed out the code so that it only loops once - telling it to refresh the first pivot; the thing I'm confused about is that after the code runs, it appears to have refreshed all my pivots. I think it's also important to note the each pivot table is linked to the same data source. (an external ds)
Maybe when this is the case, refresh will always refresh all?
I'm looking for a way to refresh my pivotchart and update my pivot table data every time that a certain macro runs. I could just delete it and make a new one everytime but that runs in to the problem of defining a new sheet every time. Is there a simple way to do this. say I my pivot chart is on "Sheet 7" and it there is only one pivot chart in the workbook and my source sheet is on "Combined Data". and at the moment the data range is "A1:N435" and say next time I run my macro the data range will add 20 rows of data and the next 25.
So I have this table... At the bottom of the table the Outer Fences. There is a column at the end of the table that calculates if the value in the row is outside the fences. I tried to do this by using the cell (say, H1500) in the if statement, but as I continued down the column I noticed that row 2 used H1500, row 3 used H1501, row 4 used H1502, and so on. So I have been just entering the new fence numbers as the data changes. Is there a way to go into the if statement and somehow "lock" the cell value so it doesn't change?
I'm looking for a VBA that can copy a PivotTable to my workbook. The PivotTable is at another location. When I open my workbook, this VBA must replace the old PivotTable by the most recent PivotTable. How do I do this with VBA?
if it is possible to prevent a workbook from being saved other than by a macro (So no saves on Ctrl + S or File Saves). Basically, I want to allow users to use a template that I have set up, but I do not want to allow them to be able to save the document.

I would like to filter by Business Developer and copy and paste all text to a new workbook. I would need to repeat the same code for all Business Developers and the number of columns will vary.
This is the code I have so far. I get an error msg when it tries to paste the data to the new workbook.
Code: Macro5 Macro ' Macro recorded 3/14/2012 by MPS Group ' ' ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Business Developer"). _ CurrentPage = "Donna Hoffman" Columns("A:L").Select
I have an Excel Workbook with Showcase Queries embedded into it.
Upon a manual open, the user is prompted to either refresh data or keep data since last save, the user then has to enter a username and password to allow the query to access the database.
Using the code below to open the workbook, no such prompts are given. Is the code overriding the prompts and automatically refreshing the data without password? [Given nature of data, visual validation of refresh is not possible]
If not, how can we code a data refresh through showcase query with user/pw req's?
I have to excel files, both have the same data. I created a pivot table macro on the first file. I want to be able to open the second file and use the shortcut to create the pivot table. the problem is that it refers back to the original workbook I created the macro on. How do I change the code to make it refer to the current workbook?
I have a pivot table in spreadsheet A. I have some formulas in another spreadsheet B. The formulas look up data in the pivot table in A and use that data in B to return and answer. Is there a way to refresh the pivot table in A from B without having to open A and refresh the table?
- a list of data - a pivottable based on these data
When moving this worksheet this worksheet to another workbook, the pivot table can't refresh anymore. This throws an error message "Reference is not valid". To work around this problem I need to adapt the datasource. The same occurs if the list and the pivot table are on separate sheet, with the added strange behaviour that, when data an PT are split, it is not possible to move both sheet together.
This would not be a big issue if my problem had to be solved manually. The real problem is that I need to move the sheets from a C# program.
I'm trying to write a macro that will create a pivot table, and am getting an Error code 1004: Cannot Open Pivot Table Source File "Sheetname". My code is below. I've tried to note what each section does, and it all seems to work well except for the Pivot Table creation.
I have a worksheet with two pivot tables, one of which is visible to the user. Ideally, the user should be able to change the "Row Label" field settings of the visible pivot table and then press an "update button" that then adds the same field to the second pivot table.
Ideally, the ordering of the fields should also be made similar between the two tables, though this is of less priority.
I imagine it would be something in the style of:
"If number of Pivot1 active row label fields = X then Pivot 2.AddRowLabelField = Pivot1.RowLabelField(X) end if"
attached is a spreadsheet 6 people in my area use daily(ive copied and pasted the sheet in question to a new worksheet, as the file was too big). Ive been trying for about 3 days now to make a pivot table to summarise this data.
I have data that develops 3 to 4 pivot table each day. I would like to know if there is a way to change the date on one of the pivot table and have the other pivot tables date change to match with the first pivot table. At this time I am going to all 3 or 4 pivot table to select the correct date. The date is in the page position of the pivot table. I have attached a small sample of the data and the pivot tables.
I have a pivot table in the first sheet which includes the field "Date" as a column label.
In the remaining sheets, except for one, there are pivot tables based on the same underlying dataset which also include the field "Date" as a column label.
I would like to adjust the selection (i.e., exclude some dates) from the column label in the first sheet and see if it is possible to make the same adjustments automatically to the pivot tables in the remaining sheets as well.
note that the field "Date" is used as a Column label, i.e., it is not a Report filter.
My input data for Pivot table has a column named "Month". The month values are like April 07, April 08, Nov07 in random order for period between Jan 07 to Aug 08.
When I create a pivot Table, this column is sorted alphabetically (April 07 is followed by April 08) but I need it to be sorted in the ascending order with respect to month (April 07 is followed by May 07).
I further use this data to plot a Pivot Chart. There is another issue here. I want to use separate colors for each series. I do not know how to achieve above 2 things.
