    Question Linking a Slicer To Multiple Tables (Not Pivot Tables) in Excel

    THE OBJECTIVE:
    To be able to filter multiple Excel tables (NOT Pivot tables) using the same slicer.

    It would also apply to having the same slicer connected to an Excel table (not pivot) and one or more pivot tables.

    The reason that I want to do this is that I want the users to be able to filter in the table and then update certain data. When they do this, I want to be able to present summary reports using pivot tables (based on the selections they have made).
    e.g. if they select a specific country in the Excel table and make changes, the pivot reports should give a summary for this Country.

    You can't do it with slicer alone. Table Slicer cannot link multiple tables or tables and PivotTables at same time.

    One possibility is to read slicer selection (either to Pivot or Table) and then use VBA to filter the other related table(s).

    However, code will largely depend on your set up; is Pivot using data model or not, are all values in slicer present in all tables to be filtered, if not how will error or no match item be dealt with etc etc.

    Without sample file that replicates your actual workbook set up (with desensitized data), I'm afraid, I won't be able to give you much more than this.
