Hi

 In my Excel Add-in I use the following code in refreshing a pivot table after
changes to the data behind it are made. The problem is that the pivot table
doesn't go back to the state that it was in before. Is there a way to stop this?


Sub ChangePivotSource()
        Try
            Dim oPT As Excel.PivotTable
            Dim oPC As Excel.PivotCache

            Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Sheets("Pivot").activate()
            oPT = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)

            oPC = oPT.PivotCache
            oPC.SourceData = "Data!" & Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ConvertFormula("$A$1:$F$90", Excel.XlReferenceStyle.xlA1, Excel.XlReferenceStyle.xlR1C1)


            oPT.RefreshTable()

            If Not oPT Is Nothing Then oPT = Nothing

            If Not oPC Is Nothing Then oPC = Nothing

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

When I open the saved Excel sheet the pivot looks like the first image.
I then go to the second image, make my changes, and hit the button that
refreshes the pivot table with the data that I have changed.
After the refresh the pivot goes back to the state it is in in the first image,
when I need it to go back to the second image
