VBA Excel 2000 - Sorting values of pivot

Dear Experts,

In the attached file or in Code section there is a macro, which creates pivot and works fine. (with the help of several EE experts :-))

I would search a solution to this part

'Sorting
Range("A11:E22").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:="R11C5", Order1:=xlDescending, Type:=xlSortValues, _
        OrderCustom:=1, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom


Basically it works but just for actual range, and that can change later. Could be this done somehow with referring to pivot attribute? So like maybe the conditional formatting part works, referring to 'Row Grand Total'.

thanks,
Sub PivotCreation()

'Count actual base sheet rows
Dim LastRowWithValue As Long
LastRowWithValue = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Row - 1 + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

'Source and Place
     ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
        "Sheet1!R1C1:R" & LastRowWithValue & "C3").CreatePivotTable TableDestination:=ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A9"), _
        TableName:="PivotTable1"
'Always
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet2").Activate
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").SmallGrid = False
'Column, Row fields
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").AddFields RowFields:= _
        "Item", ColumnFields:="Area"
'Data fields
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Qty")
        .Orientation = xlDataField
        .NumberFormat = "# ##0"
        .Function = xlSum
    End With
'Afterwards Sum if needed
    'ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields( _
    '  "Count of Qty").Function = xlSum
'Certain columns not visible
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Area")
        .PivotItems("West").Visible = False
    End With
'Columns replace and order
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Area").PivotItems( _
        "South").Position = 1
'Conditional formatting
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotSelect "'Row Grand Total'", xlDataAndLabel
    With Selection
        .FormatConditions.Delete
        .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlGreaterEqual _
            , Formula1:="2000"
        .FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 4
        .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlLess, _
            Formula1:="2000"
        .FormatConditions(2).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
    End With
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotSelect "'Column Grand Total'", xlDataAndLabel
    Selection.FormatConditions.Delete
'Sorting
Range("A11:E22").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:="R11C5", Order1:=xlDescending, Type:=xlSortValues, _
        OrderCustom:=1, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom

'Paste special as values
'    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").TableRange2.Copy
'    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").TableRange2.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
End Sub

Try this:
Sub PivotCreation()

'Count actual base sheet rows
Dim LastRowWithValue As Long
Dim PT As PivotTable
LastRowWithValue = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Row - 1 + ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

'Source and Place
     Set PT = ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
        "Sheet1!R1C1:R" & LastRowWithValue & "C3").CreatePivotTable(TableDestination:=ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A9"), _
        TableName:="PivotTable1")
'Always
    With PT
      .Parent.Activate
      .SmallGrid = False
'Column, Row fields
    .AddFields RowFields:="Item", ColumnFields:="Area"
'Data fields
    With .PivotFields("Qty")
        .Orientation = xlDataField
        .NumberFormat = "# ##0"
        .Function = xlSum
    End With
'Afterwards Sum if needed
    'ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields( _
    '  "Count of Qty").Function = xlSum
'Certain columns not visible
    .PivotFields("Area").PivotItems("West").Visible = False
'Columns replace and order
    .PivotFields("Area").PivotItems("South").Position = 1
'Conditional formatting
   .PivotSelect "'Row Grand Total'", xlDataAndLabel
    With Selection
        .FormatConditions.Delete
        .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlGreaterEqual _
            , Formula1:="2000"
        .FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 4
        .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlLess, _
            Formula1:="2000"
        .FormatConditions(2).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
    End With
    .PivotSelect "'Column Grand Total'", xlDataAndLabel
    Selection.FormatConditions.Delete
'Sorting
   .PivotFields("Item").AutoSort xlDescending, "Sum of Qty"
End With
'Paste special as values
'    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").TableRange2.Copy
'    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").TableRange2.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

I can just realize now, that you reworked also my beginner logic with defining variable PT as PivotTable, and after all of the pivot attributes based on that.

Super like this, this is the case that I thanked you something, and later understood that should thank more :-)))
