Hi

I know that you can change the SQL querry for a Pivot in something like
Activesheet.pivottables(1).pivotcache.commandtext = "SELECT * FROM ....

What is the command to change the Data Range
like my pivot give me this value Sheet1!R1C1:R11C3 for SourceData
Activesheet.pivottables(1).SourceData = Sheet1!R1C1:R11C3

how can I get it to point by VBA to a different range say Sheet1!$A$1:$C$1,Sheet1!$A$3:$C$9

Tks

The SourceData for a pivot table must be one contiguous range.

You have to filter the pivot the same way as the source, or copy the filtered data to another area and use that as the source data. The former is easier. ;)

Activesheet.pivottables(1).SourceData = "Sheet1!R3C1:R9C3"

Open in new window

for example. If you have more than one pivot table based on the same pivotcache, you need to create a new cache - see sample code here: http://excelmatters.com/?p=119
