Two Pivot Tables, one dependent on the other

I have two tabs with a pivot table each in an MS Excel 2007 spreadsheet from the same data source.   Specifically, I have date (MMMYYYY) filter at the top of the 1st tab and another Date filter on the second tab.

How do I connect the two.  I.e., if I select a date in the 1st tab, say AUG2014, how can I relay that select to the pivot table in the second tab?

Thanks,

In 2007 you can use only VBA (macro) for this. If you can use Office 2010 or 2013 there is a feature called Slicers which is somethig you can use for this

Sorry, for now, IT has only allowed us to use 2007. Given such, what is the VB macro I can use?

You may try something like this to see if this works for you.
Don't forget to change the Sheet Names and PivotTable Names as per your actual sheet names and PivotTable Names before running the code.
Sub SetSameFilterInPivotTables()

Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
Dim myFilter As String

Set ws1 = Sheets("Pivot1")          'Pivot1 is the Sheet which has the PivotTable1

Set ws2 = Sheets("Pivot2")          'Pivot2 is the Sheet which has the PivotTable2

myFilter = ws1.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Date").CurrentPage.Value         'Date is the field name which is dropped in PivotTable Filter Area and myFilter is the filter set in PivotTable1

ws2.PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Date").ClearAllFilters          'Clears all the existing Filters from PivotTable2

ws2.PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Date").CurrentPage = myFilter

End Sub
