Hi all,
I want to use dynamic range to define the data for a pivot.  The issue is I am having is how do I make the formula so that if number of rows and column could change it would update.  The data starts on A1 and goes to R1533 currently but it could change to T1615 or anything. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

montrof,

I address how to do this in my article here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/A_3172-How-to-Automatically-Update-Your-PivotTables-and-PivotCharts.html

It shows how to make the source range dynmaic, either by using a Table (Excel 2007/2010), or by using a dynamic named range (any version of Excel).
