Pivot table does not forget previous pivotitems

I have a set of data containing projects A, B, C, D.
From here I generate a pivot table which contains all four projects.
When I get new data containing projects C, D, E, F in the same place and then update the pivot table then the pivotitems are A, B, C, D, E, F. Somehow the pivot items A and B do not disappear.

I have tried refresh and change data source.

Is there some other way to do this?

Debra has instructions for how to clear out the old items in various versions on her site here: http://www.contextures.com/xlPivot04.html

ssaqibh,

You can right click on the pivot table, and choose, PivotTable Options.

Goto Data tab, and change the Number of items to retain per field: from Automatic to None.

That will force the PivotTable to show only field data that currently exist in the Data.
