Excel 2003 PivotTable.ClearTable

My spreadsheet has a pivot table on 5 different worksheets.  Two of the pivot tables use the same datasource. The others each have their own datasource.

For the 2 tables that share the same datasource I get a warning message when I run pvtTable.ClearTable.  The message is:
The pivottable report is based on the same data as at least one other pivottable report. Clearing the pivottable report will remove the following from all the pivottable reports: grouping, calculated items, calculated fields, custom items.
See attached .jpg


Dim arrColumns
    Dim nColumns As Integer
    Dim wsReport, wsData As Worksheet
    Dim pvtTable As PivotTable
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    Set wsReport = Worksheets(sReportType)
    Set wsData = Worksheets(sReportType & "Query")
    theDataSource = sReportType & "Results"
   
    'Put the Column Headings of the Query Results into an array
    wsData.Select
    col = Range("A1").End(xlToRight).Select
    nColumns = Selection.Column
    ReDim arrColumns(nColumns - 1)
    For i = 0 To nColumns - 1
        arrColumns(i) = Cells(1, i + 1).Value
    Next
    
    'Clear the old pivot table and place the pivot table fields
    wsReport.Select
    Set pvtTable = wsReport.Range("A10").PivotTable
    
    pvtTable.ClearTable                 'this is the line that causes the message

Try turning Application.DisplayAlerts off (by setting it to False) prior to clearing your table.

Brad
Sub PTdeleter()
Dim pt As PivotTable
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
For Each pt In ActiveSheet.PivotTables
    pt.ClearTable
Next
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
End Sub
