    Re: Pivot table source range variable

    Thanks for your help, I'm getting a different error saying that the pivot table field name is not valid, and needs to use data in a list with labelled columns.

    I have checked that every column from A to BQ has a heading, but still no luck.

    are you sure you have no hidden columns with blank headers and that the headers are in row 1? if so, maybe you have an invalid character in the field name - can you manually create a pivot table from the data?

    Yes, no hidden columns or blanks in row 1, and I can update the sourcedata for the pivot table manually.

    are you sure that the code is using the correct sheet? a sample workbook would probably speed this up. ;-)

    weird. seems to work with R1C1 format (which I prefer with pivots anyway especially with large datasets)

    Ah so simple but it's odd you can't use the other format...

    Thanks for your help, it is much appreciated.

    Re: Pivot table source range variable

    Why not just use a dynamic named range and skip the VBA?
