"With Events" class to capture "After Pivot Table Refresh" event

Experts, Masters and Sages: Is there a way to create an After Pivot Table Refresh event (not Query Refresh) to fire additional code afterwards?

I have multiple users working in local Read Only copies of an Excel file with Pivot Tables sourcing an Access table. Users refresh their Pivot Tables using the Excel Menu or Context Menu.

After the Pivot refresh, I'll fire additional code to update a "Last Refresh Timestamp" that I compare to the "Data Source Timestamp". When Data Source is updated, the Data Source Timestamp > Last Refresh Timestamp and causes formula "=If(Last refresh > Data Source, "", "Update Available")" to display "Update Available".

When users subsequently Refresh, I want the code to update the last refresh Timestamp and the formula then returns a 0-length string and the notification goes away.
