PivotTables Collection Object [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Multiple objects

A collection of all the PivotTable objects on the specified worksheet.

Using the PivotTables Collection

Use the PivotTables method to return the PivotTables collection. The following example displays the number of PivotTable reports on Sheet3.

MsgBox Worksheets("sheet3").PivotTables.Count

Use the PivotTableWizard method to create a new PivotTable report and add it to the collection. The following example creates a new PivotTable report from a Microsoft Excel database (contained in the range A1:C100).

ActiveSheet.PivotTableWizard xlDatabase, Range("A1:C100")

Use PivotTables(index), where index is the PivotTable index number or name, to return a single PivotTable object. The following example makes the Year field a row field in the first PivotTable report on Sheet3.

Worksheets("sheet3").PivotTables(1) _
    .PivotFields("year").Orientation = xlRowField


Because PivotTable report programming can be complex, it's generally easiest to record PivotTable report actions and then revise the recorded code. To record a macro, point to Macro on the Tools menu and click Record New Macro.
