Hello Rajnish,

the code below will count the pivot tables in all sheets of the active workbook.

cheers, teylyn
Sub CountPivotTables()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim i As Integer
i = 0
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
    For Each PivotTable In ws.PivotTables
        i = i + 1
    Next PivotTable
Next ws
Debug.Print i

The following will return both the sheet names and pivot table names so you can address them appropriately as:

activeworkbook.sheets(arrPivots(arrIndex, 0))(.pivottables(arrPivots(arrIndex, 0))

Where arrindex is the index number within the array for the tables ... possibly via a loop.

Chris
Sub pivArr()
Dim arrPivots() As String
Dim arrIndex As Integer
Dim piv As Variant
Dim cnt As Integer
Dim ws As Worksheet

    For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        cnt = cnt + ws.PivotTables.Count
    Next
    arrIndex = -1
    For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        For Each piv In ws.PivotTables
            arrIndex = arrIndex + 1
            ReDim Preserve arrPivots(0 To cnt - 1, 1)
            arrPivots(arrIndex, 0) = ws.Name
            arrPivots(arrIndex, 1) = piv.Name
        Next
    Next
End Sub

@cal. precisely. I'm baby-stepping through VBA, as it is, spreading my "wisdom" where I can. LOL. Seeing the latest comment, I guess Chris has it nailed. Again. Cheers, Chris.
