Hello Experts - Please see attached file.  I'd like to know if there is a way to based multiple pivot table filter selections on a specific cell.  Based on the attached sample file, if someone was to chose a different month in cell M2 on the first tab, all of the filters in the 3 pivot tables would change to that new month.

Thanks!!!

Right-click the worksheet tab, choose View Code then paste this in:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
   Dim pt As PivotTable
   Dim pf As PivotField
   On Error GoTo err_handle

   With Application
      .ScreenUpdating = False
      .EnableEvents = False
   End With
   If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range("M2")) Is Nothing Then
      For Each pt In Me.PivotTables
         pt.ManualUpdate = True
         Set pf = pt.RowFields(1)
         pf.ClearAllFilters
         pf.PivotFilters.Add Type:=xlCaptionEquals, Value1:=Range("M2").Value
         pt.ManualUpdate = False
      Next pt
   End If
clean_up:
   With Application
      .EnableEvents = True
      .ScreenUpdating = True
   End With
   Exit Sub
