    Macro to select multiple pivot table filters, based on values in a table

    Is this possible? Iīm looking for a macro that selects multiple filters on a pivot table, based on the values of a regular table.

    For example in C1:C10 I have a list of values: (1,2,3,4,5,a,b,c,d,e). The values and the range can change.
    I want to automatically select these values in a specific pivot table filter when I run the macro.

    Thanks

    Use code like this: in this example, Sheet2 has the list of values, and the pivottable sheet name, name, and field name are all made up by me....

    Hi

    Thanks for the answer and apologies for the delay. I only had some time to look at this now.
    I tried your code and made the name adaptations to fit a test sheet, but canīt seem to make it work.

    The macro is selecting some values on the filters, but not the ones in range C of sheet2 and then it ends with an error.
    Tried some variations without success

    Attached is the test sheet created

    The issue is that I assumed that the pivot items would be strings, not numbers. If they will be numbers in the actual table, then change

    Thank you! It works great when I have numbers only.

    The issue is that it does not work for alpha-numerical values.
    The pivot items can be both numeric and alfa-numeric (car models).

    Hi Bernie, I really appreciate your help but I canīt seem to make it work and it is wrecking my head. Tried different variations without luck.
    I canīt see what I am doing wrong. See attached the sheet created. The macro “test” is assigned to the shape.

    Thanks!

    The PI cache was out of date - you must have overwritten some values after creating the pivot table, so the table needed to be refreshed.

    Re: Macro to select multiple pivot table filters, based on values in a table

    This is getting strange... Sorry, itīs not working for me. Used the last sheet I uploaded and copy/pasted your last code. Got error 1004. "Unable to set the visible property of the Pivotitem class" which was the error I was getting before.

    Tried on Excel 2007 and 2016. Same issue.
    Could you attach a sheet where the maco works on your machine?
    Running out of ideas

    I'm not out of ideas - I had tried something that failed; but it actually allowed what I posted to work, though I did not realize it at the time:

    This WILL work (I hope )
