    Pivot table, changing the criteria in the parent table

    HI All I was wondering if there was a way to create a parent pivot table and 2 children based on the first pivot table, and when you change the criteria in the parent table the children pivot table changes accordingly to those criteria changes?
    Can this be done? Will this need to be done in VB?
    Thanks
    James

    This might do what you're looking for.

    You should add lines to refesh the other pivot tables in your workbook.

    Hi James,

    This is similar (perhaps) to a question from a few weeks ago. Find my attached answer. If you change the filter of any of the pivots it will change the other two pivot tables to be the same filter.

    If this is useful, I'd like to have an example of how you are using this feature.

    If not then I'm thinking you could create a Dynamic Named Range where your first pivot table was possitioned and use that named range for your other two child pivot tables.

    Thank you for our solutions.
    Both solutions work like you have presented however, Melvin was what I was after and not to adapt it to my needs.
    Thanks once again.
