Hi

In the following pivot what VBA code would I use to find the header (eg Goal, Status, Task) based on the cell I am in. The pivot can change so I need to be able to do this dynamically.

I use the following code to get the pivot cell to the left:

    Function Get_Pivot_Cell_to_Left() As String
        Try
            'Gets the pivot cell value to left even where label is blank
            Dim pCell As Excel.PivotCell
            'pCell = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveCell.PivotCell
            pCell = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveCell.PivotCell
            If pCell.PivotField.Position > 1 Then
                Get_Pivot_Cell_to_Left = pCell.PivotRowLine.PivotLineCells(pCell.PivotField.Position - 1).PivotItem.Caption
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Problem getting Task data " & ex.Message)
            Get_Pivot_Cell_to_Left = ""
        End Try
    End Function
