Shouldn't pivot table filtering follow related Data Table filter?

Hello - I set up a data table on a worksheet, and then based a pivot table off of it.
When I filter the data table, the pivot table refreshes, but with absolutely no relation to the data table filtering!

What have I got wrong?

Thanks

if oyu have a table A1:C10 and made an Pivot Table from that table you can see some values in the Pivot. When you filter source table Pivot will show still the same data as it was before filtering because source table range is the same. Filter in source table does not make different range, it just temporary hide some values.
You can try to filter directly in Pivot table
