is there a way to make a pivot either i) remain static with a range or ii) ensure it always grabs all the data when the pivot is refreshed in a mcaro with 'Activeworkbook.RefreshAll'

i.e. If I have 5000 rows today and my pivot range is Sheet1!$A$5:$T$5000 it will work.

if tomorrow the numberof rows has gone to say 4500 the range changes to 'Sheet1!$A$5:$T$4500'

if the following day the number of rows increases to 5100 the pivot range stays at 'Sheet1!$A$5:$T$4500' and will return invalid data.

So, I need to always ensure that I pick up all the data if the number of rows goes down or up

You can set your data range as a Dynamic Range.

In the Range Name Manager create a Range with Workbook scope using the following in the Refers To box:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,0,0,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A:$A),COUNTA(Sheet1!$1:1))

This creates a range that is the same height and width as the data in Sheet1, starting at A1.

Then in the Pivot Wizard, use the Named Range as the data source.
