I have 2 pivoit tables that have a common data sheet. when i filter pivot 1, is it posable to filter pivot 2  using the resultes from pivit 1.

i'm asuming that this will need some codeing in VBA

The attached sheet should make it clear

filtering the pivot 1 by name and/or country I would like pivot 2 to only show those names that are visable in pivot 1

hope this is all clear

Perhaps this in the sheet code module (right-click Sheet2 tab > view code, then paste this into the code pane):
Private Sub Worksheet_PivotTableUpdate(ByVal Target As PivotTable)
    Call AlignPivots
End Sub

Private Sub AlignPivots()
    Dim vararrVisibleNames As Variant
    Dim pvt As PivotTable
    Dim pvf As PivotField
    Dim pvi As PivotItem
    
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    
    Set pvt = Me.PivotTables("PivotTable1")
    Set pvf = pvt.ColumnFields(1)
    
    vararrVisibleNames = pvf.DataRange
    
    Set pvt = Me.PivotTables("PivotTable2")
    Set pvf = pvt.RowFields(1)
    
    For Each pvi In pvf.PivotItems
        With pvi
            .Visible = IsNumeric(Application.Match(.Value, vararrVisibleNames, 0))
        End With
    Next pvi
    
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Open in new window


You could just write all of the code in the PivotTableUpdateEvent.  I wasn't sure how you want to call it.
