Hi,

Im loking for some code that will look at the data in ColA in one pivot and if there is a matching entry in ColA in a pivot on another tab, highlight the whole row green, if it is not a  match, highlight it red.

I did the first as an example

Thanks

I would use this code:

Sub matchPivots()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wksA As Worksheet
Dim wksB As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim r As Range
Dim rFind As Range
Dim rColor As Range

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    Set wksA = wkb.Sheets("ASPA Pivot")
    Set wksB = wkb.Sheets("Sophis Pivot")
    
    Set rng = wksA.Range("A5", wksA.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(-1, 0))
    
    For Each r In rng
        Set rColor = wksA.Range(r, wksA.Cells(r.Row, "G"))
        Set rFind = wksB.Range("A:A").Find(what:=r.Value, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole, searchorder:=xlByRows, searchdirection:=xlNext)
        If Not rFind Is Nothing Then
            rColor.Interior.Color = vbGreen
        Else
            rColor.Interior.Color = vbRed
        End If
    Next r
    
End Sub

One question Dave, the colours expand to col G, however the pivots shrink and expand with new data. There is always a grand total for for Columns, so could you amend so the colouring only goes as far as "Grand Total"

Thanks

Sure.  It searches for "Grand Total" on row 4, if not found, then uses last column on row 4.  Change the row number if you move the pivot table:

Option Explicit

Sub matchPivots()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wksA As Worksheet
Dim wksB As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim r As Range
Dim rFind As Range
Dim rColor As Range
Dim lastCol As Long

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    Set wksA = wkb.Sheets("ASPA Pivot")
    Set wksB = wkb.Sheets("Sophis Pivot")
    
    Set rng = wksA.Range("A5", wksA.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(-1, 0))
    
    On Error Resume Next
    lastCol = wksA.Range("4:4").Find(what:="Grand Total", LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlPart, searchorder:=xlByColumns, searchdirection:=xlNext).Column
    If lastCol = 0 Then
        lastCol = wksA.Cells(4, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    End If
    On Error Resume Next
    
    For Each r In rng
        Set rColor = wksA.Range(r, wksA.Cells(r.Row, lastCol))
        Set rFind = wksB.Range("A:A").Find(what:=r.Value, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole, searchorder:=xlByRows, searchdirection:=xlNext)
        If Not rFind Is Nothing Then
            rColor.Interior.Color = vbGreen
        Else
            rColor.Interior.Color = vbRed
        End If
    Next r
    
End Sub
