pivot filter - not dynamic!

Hello

I just recorded a macro - but don’t find it dynamic.
There is a pivot table that has a pivot filter. Now if you press the button, it reset to certain pivot filter values. If you see the macro-

 it basically turns on all the field values >>
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Region").CurrentPage = _
        "(All)"

 and then switches off all the remaining values.  >>
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Region")
        .PivotItems("West").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("(blank)").Visible = False
    End With



This code is not at all dynamic and everytime the data changes, I have to  adjust it? This is not dynamic. How do I accomplish the same goal by just telling the vba code to selectively filter for a set of values (Central and East) - ?

Your pivot table is counting no of units rather than summing them so unless the number of records change the count won't change regardless of changes to the number of units.
- change the field settings on no.of units to 'sum' instead of count

Pivot tables are not dynamic they need to be refreshed if data changes - add the following to the code:-

 Dim pt As PivotTable
 Set pt = ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1")
 
 pt.RefreshTable

before it updates the table and it will incorporate the new data as part of the reset.

The attachment contains these revisions

You could also put similar code into the 'worksheet.activate' private module for sheet4 to ensure the refresh happens as the sheet is activated.


it would be possible to choose which regions to include/exclude in the filter by passing them in as variables but this would be the same as selecting them from the list in the drop down. If the number of regions is static then you could consider having a separate button to enable each region and a reset button to turn them all off - or a form with a checklist to mirror the content of the drop down but this seems like overkill given that the dialog is already in place within the filter button

You can use a loop like this:
   Dim pf                          As PivotField
   Dim pi                          As PivotItem
   
   Set pf = ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Region")
   With pf
      .CurrentPage = "(All)"
      For Each pi In .PivotItems
         pi.Visible = (pi.Name = "East" Or pi.Name = "Central")
      Next pi
   End With
