Excel VBA Change Pivot Table Filters

Hi Experts

Granted that I modified this from something  I found on the web, but can someone please tell me what is wrong with my code?

        With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("loan_status").ClearAllFilters
            ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("loan_status").CurrentPage = loanStat
            ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields ("loan_status")
            .PivotItems(loanStatus).Visible = True
        End With

I get Run-time error '1004':  Application-defined or object defined-error when it hits the second line.

loanStat is a variable which contains the text I want to filter loan_status on.

I'm awarding 500 points for a quick and working solution.
