CalculatedMember Object

Excel Developer Reference

Represents the calculated fields and calculated items for PivotTables with Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) data sources.


Use the Add method or the Item property of the CalculatedMembers collection to return a CalculatedMember object.

With a CalculatedMember object you can check the validity of a calculated field or item in a PivotTable using the IsValid property.

The IsValid property will return True if the PivotTable is not currently connected to the data source. Use the MakeConnection method before testing the IsValid property.

The following example notifies the user if the calculated member is valid or not. This example assumes a PivotTable exists on the active worksheet that contains either a valid or invalid calculated member.

Visual Basic for Applications
  Sub CheckValidity()
Dim pvtTable As PivotTable
Dim pvtCache As PivotCache

Set pvtTable = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
Set pvtCache = Application.ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Item(1)

' Handle run-time error if external source is not an OLEDB data source.
On Error GoTo Not_OLEDB

' Check connection setting and make connection if necessary.
If pvtCache.IsConnected = False Then
End If

' Check if calculated member is valid.
If pvtTable.CalculatedMembers.Item(1).IsValid = True Then
    MsgBox "The calculated member is valid."
    MsgBox "The calculated member is not valid."
End If

End Sub
