    Printpreview + refreshAll

    Hello,

    I'm trying to create a VBA macro button with following code.
    Purpose would be to have a printpreview of certain tabsheets in my excel (not every tabsheet needs to be print previewed).

    Tabsheet 'Dashboard' and 'Prestations' are visible, tabsheet 'volume' is not visible, but hidden (not via VBA).
    Tabsheet volume contains out of a pivottable which needs to be refreshed before the print.preview, however if I run following code it doesn't refresh the pivottable while having the printpreview.

    Thanks,

    Edit: I've attached a testfile which would explain the above more in-depth.

    The attached example, unfortunately, explains nothing.
    It is probably the case that the Input sheet contains a query to an external source. If that is the case, it is the property settings of that query that are the problem, rather than the pivot table itself. If this is the case, in the properties of the query, uncheck the "Enable background refresh" box. Make sure that the "Refresh this connection on Refresh All" box is checked.

    Hello Artik,,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The tabsheet Input only contains out of a table where manual input needs to be inputted (volumes) and doesn't contain out of any query or any linked external sources unfortunately..

    Snip from VBA code which is placed in tabsheet DASHBOARD:

    Unfortunately, in my simple example, I don't notice problems with refreshing the pivot table before the print preview.

    Re: Printpreview + refreshAll

    Seems like the filter on my pivottable is causing the error.

    I've filtered the pivottable by excluding all zero values (as I only want to print the volumes with > 0 volume).

    Any workaround around that?

    Re: Printpreview + refreshAll

    Found a working way around.

    I deleted the pivottable and created a formula based table on my original list which excludes all zero values.

    Thanks for the help!
