Excel/Creating PivotTable in VBA


Private Sub CreatePivotGapWalk()   

Dim WSD As Worksheet
Dim WSDT As Worksheet
Dim PTCache As PivotCache
Dim pt As PivotTable
Dim Prange As Range
Dim i As Long
Dim FieldType As String
Dim pf As PivotField
Dim Pindx As Integer        ' Page index
Dim indx As Long
Dim Rindx As Integer        ' Row index
Dim Cindx As Integer        ' Column index
Dim Dindx As Integer        ' Data Index

Pindx = 1
Rindx = 1
Cindx = 1
Dindx = 1


   Dim shtSrc As Worksheet, shtDest As Worksheet
   Dim pc As PivotCache

   Set shtSrc = objXLBook.Worksheets("GapWalkRaw")
   Set shtDest = shtSrc.Parent.Sheets.Add()
   shtDest.NAME = "GapWalk_pvt"
' Delete any prior pivot tables
For Each pt In shtSrc.PivotTables
Next pt
For Each pt In shtDest.PivotTables
Next pt

Set pc = objXLBook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:=shtSrc.Range("A1").CurrentRegion)
pc.CreatePivotTable TableDestination:=shtDest.Range("A10"), TableName:="PivotTable1" ' This line fails

'Code works fine on the first iteration fails on 2nd time. Any Ideas??


From what I see (and all I can see is your code) I would expect the code to error on the second run right here:

shtDest.NAME = "GapWalk_pvt"

on the second run, I would guess you are trying to create a duplicate sheet name since that sheet was created on the first run.  You would need to test the sheet name and if it is found, then give it the new sheet a different name.   

now you say it fails on the last line.  I would not see that as being a problem unless the object shtDest was undefined.  

I did test your code and it error'd where I said it would error.  When I modified the code so it didn't create a new sheet thus avoiding the error I predicted, then the code ran fine the second time.
