Excel 2010 - Pivot table overlapping

Whenever I "refresh all" my pivot tables (have over 50), it will throw me this error

"Pivot Table cannot overlap Another Pivot Table"

I'm not very good with pivot tables, how do i know which is the table causing the error?

Will it affect my data?

Pivot tables grow and shrink when the data is refreshed. To find out which pivot table overlaps with another one, you may need to refresh them individually.

Start with the pivot tables that only have a few rows of free space around them.

Try moving the pivot tables to new sheets, so they cannot overlap anymore. Then watch how they expand after refreshing. If you have lots of data, having pivot tables close to each other may not be a working approach.
