Hi

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
    sh.Calculate
Next sh


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

Worksheets(reference).Calculate

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