Excel & VBA to create Pivot Table

I recorded a Macro of me creating a pivot table then attempted to step through the execution (after removing the one I had created) and I get an error on this line;
    ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
        "NRDetails[#All]", Version:=xlPivotTableVersion12).CreatePivotTable _
        TableDestination:="Not Ready Summary!R3C1", TableName:="PivotTable1", _
        DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion12

Open in new window


"NRDetails[#All]" refers to a table on another worksheet.
I've tried changing the name of the worksheet in case there was a remnant in memory of the table name but that didn't change anything.
What am I missing?

Is the data sheet active when you run the code?

Get an 'invalid procedure call' no matter which sheet is active.

Does the Not Ready Summary sheet exist? If so, try changing the destination argument to:
"'Not Ready Summary'!R3C1"
rather than:
"Not Ready Summary!R3C1"

Note the single quotes around the sheet name.
