Excel VBA - updating charts via pivot tables

Posted on 2011-02-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I have a table in Excel that is automatically refreshed using code on opening the sheet.
The table is connected to a pivot table which is connected to a chart.
Errors occur because of these connections. Is there a way to get around this?
I tried to record the pivot table and chart generation but it was difficult because
you have first delete the existing ones and this gets messy

Try recalculating all sheets in the workbook. I assume your table, picot table, and cart are not all located on the same sheets.

For Each sh In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Next sh

or if you would prefer to specify which sheets get recalculated:


Use the above statement once for each sheet to be recalculated, where reference is the name of the sheet.
