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.

 


Public Sub UpdAllPivots()
  Dim shtThing As Worksheet
  Dim pvtThing As PivotTable
  For Each shtThing In Application.Sheets
    For Each pvtThing In shtThing.PivotTables
      pvtThing.ChangePivotCache ActiveWorkbook. _
        PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, _
        SourceData:="C:\Documents and Settings\shahryarm\Desktop\[Combined 09S 20090407v8.xlsm]Combined Grantee Main Data!R3C4:R50000C252", _
        Version:=xlPivotTableVersion12)
    Next
  Next
End Sub
