Pivot table not updating refresh

24-Jun-2019 21:12

Once you have created a Pivot Table, it doesn’t automatically refresh when you add new data or change the existing data.Since your Pivot Table is created using the Pivot Cache, when the existing data changes or when you add new rows/columns to the data, the Pivot Cache does not update itself automatically, and hence, the Pivot Table also does not update.As much as I love Excel pivot tables, there are a few annoying problems that you’ll run into, while working with them.I made a list of my top 5 annoyances, and you might have other problems to add to the list. Seems like the slicers are excluded from the Excel side refresh. If a user is allowed the privileges above on a protected sheet, then updating the slicer source data should perhaps follow through to the slicer? Having said that, upon protecting the sheet the following options were ticked allowing the user to operate the slicer and have the pivot charts / tables update: I’m unsure whether this is a bug or not.

would update all connections, then update the pivots.The only way I can get it to update is by checking the ‘Hide items with no data’ in the slicer properties. I can’t believe the slicer will not update after a data model refresh! The only work around I can think of is via VBA code to call a function on the slicer which forces a refresh eg slicer ‘Hide items with no data’ function or the slicer ‘sort order’ function which seem to force a refresh. I think it comes down to the way MSFT have implemented sheet protection.I'm getting an error when I try to refresh Pivot Table data - and it's not updating a field I've made changes to.The error message is: "The pivot table field name is not valid.

Tip: change your data set to a table before you insert a pivot table.
