VBA Excel 2000 - Pivot "Paste Special as Values"

Dear Experts,

In the daily work I am creating a lot of pivot tables, but typically needed only their numbers and not the pivot table itself with all of the wizard, formating etc functions.

So for this used to apply that selecting the pivot "arounding area", right click copy, after paste special as values. Can not do that copy on the pivot area itself and right click, because in Excel 2000 there is no copy option in the list.

Could you advise how to do it differently? Is there some command in VBA which would copy the pivot itself and paste special as values?

thanks,

csehz,


Yes, this could be done in a macro, but that's not necessary.

"Copy" is missing from the Context menu (it could, of course, be added), so simply use it from the menu bar - "Edit" then "Copy", followed by the "Paste Special".

Regards,
Brian.

Brian thanks, but I would need this in VBA.

For example in the attached code there is a pivot with name "PivotTable8".

How this could be copied and paste to new sheet with Paste Special as Values?


ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
        "Sheet1!R1C1:R16C3").CreatePivotTable TableDestination:="", TableName:= _
        "PivotTable8"
    ActiveSheet.PivotTableWizard TableDestination:=ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1)
    ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1).Select
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable8").SmallGrid = False
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable8").AddFields RowFields:="Item", _
        ColumnFields:="Area"
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable8").PivotFields("Qty")
        .Orientation = xlDataField
        .Caption = "Sum of Qty"
        .Function = xlSum
        .NumberFormat = "# ##0"
    End With

csehz,

No problem...

Sub UnPivot()

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("pivottable8").TableRange2.Copy
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("pivottable8").TableRange2.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

End Sub

Open in new window
