Vba to Fix Pivot overlapping

Morning everyone,

I have a macro that loops through a directory and pulls back data from sql to update all the data tabs.  Then I refresh all the pivots in the workbook.  The issue I am having is sometimes the pivots will overlap and I will get an error message of "Do you want to replace the contents of the destination cells".   Since I am looping through 50 workbooks and at different time this can occur I was hoping that there was some way to programatically deal with the issue.  

Thanks,
Montrof

It's really more a spreadsheet design question more so than a VBA question.

Basically, never place PTs such that upon refresh the PT can expand to destroy other content.

I follow a general rule of always:
Putting PTs on their own worksheets, away from the source data
Not putting multiple PTs on a single worksheet

Well it was not my design I am just automating the loading of the data to the spreadsheets.
