How can I refer to the value (filter) of a slicer in Excel?

Example: My slicers is used as a filter for different departments. When I select one department, the pivot data changes accordingly, and I want the name (slicer value) of this department to be displayed in one on the cells at the top of the worksheet.

Range("A1").Value = <your answer here>

Any clues?

Hi,

The syntax is like this

ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_ContactType").SlicerItems("Client").Selected = True

Open in new window

If the slicer is connected to a powerpivot pivottable you can use the CUBERANKEDMEMEBER function to get a list of selected sliceritems.
Other wise a VBA UDF is required.

Look at this page for some info on slicers and VBA:
