Pivot table report filters - how to detect if "Select Multiple Items" is checked?

Hello - I need to be able to detect this condition in VBA (Excel 2010), and un-check the option if it is selected.
I tried the macro recorder to see if it would display the object references, but no luck.

You can use the following code..Assuming our pivot table is pivottable1 and the field is called abc

dim pt as PivotTable
Set pt=Sheets("Sheet1").PivotTables("PivotTable1")


Open in new window

This will clear all filters if applied and by default will select all values...


pls try
Set pvtTable = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
    Set pvtField = pvtTable.RowFields(1)

    ' Determine setting for property and disable if necessary.
    If pvtField.EnableItemSelection = True Then
        pvtField.EnableItemSelection = False
    End If

Open in new window
