I have a excel file in which I have 5 pivots tables and its charts.

Pivot tables are in sheet2 and charts are in sheet1.

What I want to do is to make click on one chart and then automatically the chart's pivot table is shown in a new workbook. A new workbook with only one pivot table.

Is this what your looking for ??

I created 2 other charts but not pivot
I removed the link you had on the chart to point to a macro and instead created a button htat hold a code that will call a macro in the module.

Please test it and check the result. It will only work on Pivot as this is what you requested.

Let me know your comments.

Just in case:

The TableRange1 property doesn't include page fields. So, I just changed it to TableRange2.
