    Why I am being kicked out from Excel (ver. 2010) when I tried to update a pivot data

    Hi Excel Forum

    I have created a pivot table in Excel 2010 using some initial source data (say source data set name is X).

    Then I extracted some more data from the warehouse and my source data got expanded (say now the source data set name is Y).

    I have overwritten the source dataset X in pivot table by Y.

    1. Then I clicked "change data source" icon in toolbar.

    2. A dialogue box then appeared.

    3. Then I highlighted the Y data range and cliked "OK"

    Question:
    I was immediately prompted back from Excel (i.e. I was completely kicked out of Excel).
    I have tried this 5 to 6 times, it is frustating still I am being kicked out.

    Could anyone help me.

    Thanks

    Have you tried copying the data into a new tab before changing the data source? Then when the changing of the data source is complete you can remove the other data.
