In the attached file I have some data and a Pivot table.
In the data source column #3 (Sub Project Number) is a value that I do not show, but a value I need.

When selecting a subproject in the Pivot, how do I get the value of the Sub Project NUmber child item using Excel VBA.

Please notice that the column "Sub Project" is not Unique. (10 - XXXXX)

Thank you

Hi,

pls try

Sub Macro()

Set Sel = Selection

On Error Resume Next
Set pvtfld = Sel.PivotField
On Error GoTo 0

If Not IsEmpty(pvtfld) Then
    If Sel.PivotField.Name = "Sub Project" Then
    SubProjectName = Sel.Formula
    Idx = 0
    Do
        Idx = Idx - 1
    Loop Until Sel.Offset(Idx).PivotField.Name <> "Sub Project"
    MainProjectName = Sel.Offset(Idx).Formula
    Result = Evaluate("=INDEX(Table1[Sub Project Number],MATCH( " & Chr(34) & MainProjectName & SubProjectName & Chr(34) & ",Table1[Main Project]&Table1[Sub Project],0))")
    MsgBox "Result: " & Result
    End If
End If

End Sub

Open in new window

Regards
