Updating a pivottable cache in only certain sheets of a workbook

I have this macro right now that updates all the pivot tables in a workbook, it worked fine for the file that I was using originally because there were only about ten pivot tables to update. But now I would like to use it in a much bigger file that has a lot more pivot tables. Whenever I run the macro below on my current file I get this error message: "Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications." And then I get a VBA error message that says, "Run-time error '5': Invalid procedure call or argument."

So unless there's a way to make the macro below stop before my computer and Excel get overwhelmed I was just thinking about splitting the macro into three pieces. Where I would run one macro and then it would update the pivot tables in sheets: "Center", "Sony", "Howard", and "Conference". Then i would run another macro that would do it in the sheets after that, etc.
