Hi

another way would be something like below. It would tell you in a Pop up message the Sheet name and the Pivot Table name if one or more exists:
Dim shtWS As Worksheet
Dim pvtPT As PivotTable
Dim strMsg As String

strMsg = ""

For Each shtWS In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
	If shtWS.PivotTables.Count > 0 Then
		strMsg = strMsg & shtWS.Name & vbCr
		For Each pvtPT In shtWS.PivotTables
			strMsg = strMsg & "-" & pvtPT.Name & vbCr
		Next pvtPT
	End If
Next shtWS

MsgBox strMsg

Open in new window
