Automatic Refresh of Pivot Table Data

witzph1 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am trying to create a macro to automatically refresh all data in all Pivot Tables of all my worksheets.  (This particular worbook has upwards of 90 worksheets, each with a Pivot Table.)  

I ran across the following code on EE:

Sub RefreshPivotTableData()
' Browses all the worksheets and refreshes all the pivot tables

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each sht In Worksheets
    For Each pt In sht.PivotTables
    Next pt
Next sht
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

But when it runs it gives me a "compile error: variable not defined," and it's highlighting the "scr" variable.  (See attached screen shot.)

I'm no programmer, so any help would be greatly appreciated. VB compile error
