Adjust Page Breaks Automatically With a Pivot Refresh

In Excel 2007, I have a pivot and a chart a few rows underneath it.  Whenever the pivot refreshes, and new rows are added, the pivot overlaps the chart.  How do I get it to just insert rows and move the chart down when the pivot adds new rows?  I don't want to keep having to update the page breaks.  I'm having the same problem when a new column is added to the pivot.  In the file, the cell A1 is merged across to the end of the pivot going across. When a new column is added to the pivot, the merged cells do not extend all the way to the new column. Can this be done automatically?

You could use the
Private Sub Worksheet_PivotTableUpdate(ByVal Target As PivotTable)
this is triggered everytime a pivot table is updated.

Now you can detect just how many row are filled by the pivot and move the chart accordingly...

Dear Error prone,

I am glad I could help.
I like to point to a solution rather than give the entire code.
For me it was always better to make something myself with a little help then just copy paste the entire solution...

So thanks for the points and the grade

Kind regards
