Pivot Table - automate a process

After creating a pivot table, when you click one of the numbers to have Excel create a new worksheet showing the details of what makes up the one number, is there a way, if the underlying data changes, to automatically update these separate worksheets, or is it necessary to recreate them each time the underlying data changes?  I'm assuming there's a way to automate this with macros, but I'm not a programmer and don't know the first thing on how to do this.  Please advise.

esu4236,

I had tried to do what you are asking for in the past, and found that it is not possible to have the detail sheets (drilled down) updated automatically as the detail data being changed.

The detail sheets created by drilling down are hard coded tables, which does not have any direct connection to the pivot data anymore. This applied to Excel 2010 and prior. I have not used any newer version, and I'm not sure if the feature had been added.
