Excel/Refreshing Pivot Table



I am trying to refresh all the pivot tables in my workbook through workbook open event and worksheet open event. But its shwoing some error. Pls look into this and help.

Here is the file -!109&authkey=!AG5IJjgslkSKnfU


Use this for your workbook_open event code:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

Dim pt As PivotTable
Dim sh As Worksheet
For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
 For Each pt In sh.PivotTables

End Sub

Refreshall also refreshes querytables and that appears to be where you are having your problem.  This will just refresh all pivottables.
