Question
Hi Bob,

I want a functionality where user selects the Metrics, operator and a value in the first tab, based on which my data gets filtered in pivot - Like -

1. User selects Metrics as L3M sales, Operator as > (greater than) and value as 10000 and click on "Filter Metrics"
2. It should to to Metrics Tab and filter the data on column E where its greater than 10000.
3. And filtered Product Name, Country, Territory in Metrics tab should be used to filter in the main pivot table in first tab (Plan of Record Report)

Looking for a Macro which should do all step no. 2 and 3 mentioned above. I already created a small macro assigned to the button.

Please let me know if you need any other information.
