I would really like to make the Pivot Table check box for "Autofit column widths on update" in Excel 2010 be unchecked as the default.  It is annoying to have to go in and shut it off for every Pivot Table I create.  I am hoping someone knows a regedit to make this happen.  Thanks!

Hi,

Since HasAutoFormat is a property of the pivottable, I doubt it will be possible to make it as default
Sub Macro1()
'
For Each pvt In ActiveSheet.PivotTables
    pvt.HasAutoFormat = False
Next
End Sub

Open in new window

Regards
