Hi,
I would like to load the data from an existing pivot cache directly into an array using vba code.  I would be very grateful for any help.

Thanks in advance!

Unless the pivotcache is created from an ADO recordset, you can't do that - you'll have to extract the data from its original source.

Thanks for your answer, from my rsearch that appears to be true.  With that in mind, how about loading an array directly from the pivot table itself using vba code in a very automated manner.  I know how to load a range into an array as follows:

Dim LoadArray1 As Variant
LoadArray1 = Range("datarange")

Is there anything similar to the range concept except with a pivot table?

You can load from the table since it occupies a range, but all you will get is whatever is displayed in the table, not the underlying records. If that's what you want then you use the same method you mentioned with whichever range you are after - the TableRange1, TableRange2, DataBodyRange and so on. For example:

LoadArray1 = Activesheet.PivotTables(1).DataBodyRange.Value
