The following code deselects it from a pivot table.  What happens if it is not there to deselect?  Is there a way to rewrite this so whether it is, or is not there is will deselect it?

    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("Ship To Name").CurrentPage _
        = "(All)"
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("Ship To Name")
        .PivotItems("Haworth Holland Customer CPU       ").Visible = False
    End With
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("Ship To Name"). _
        EnableMultiplePageItems = True

I suppose you speak of this

With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("Ship To Name")
        .PivotItems("Haworth Holland Customer CPU       ").Visible = False
    End With

then try

set myItem = ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotFields("Ship To Name")
        .PivotItems("Haworth Holland Customer CPU       ")

If Not myItem Is Nothing Then myItem.Visible = False

Rgonzo1971 suggestion did not work, unless he was referring to put it into the error handler?

Question on the:  On Error    what does the on error goto 0    do?   Is the zero no where? or a position?
I have used goto 100 or goto 200 but they have always referred to a different place in the procedure

It just clears the error handler - i.e. cancels the On Error Resume Next.
