VBA: Finding selected slicer items without a loop

Excel Version
  1. 2016
Sometimes you have slicers with a long list of items, and need to find out what are the selected items. Normally, it is necessary to loop through all items to get this information, as shown on the first code.

However, if the pivot table is created with the Data Model option checked, it will be OLAP based thus allowing the second method, which loops only the array containing the desired slicer items. If no item is selected it will inform that all are displayed.

Note that this kind of pivot table does not support groups, calculated fields or calculated items.

VBA Code:
Sub First()
Dim MyArr(), i%, s$, dest As Range
Set dest = [p200]                               ' starting cell
For i = 1 To ThisWorkbook.SlicerCaches.Count    ' all slicers
    s = ThisWorkbook.SlicerCaches(i).Name
    If s Like "*X*" Then                        ' desired slicers
        MyArr = IL(s)
        Set dest = dest.Resize(1, UBound(MyArr) + 1)
        dest.Value = MyArr                      ' to worksheet
        Set dest = dest.Offset(1)
    End If
Next
End Sub

Public Function IL(sn$)                     ' loop all items
Dim ShortList(), i%, sc As SlicerCache, sI As SlicerItem
i = 0
Set sc = ThisWorkbook.SlicerCaches(sn)
For Each sI In sc.SlicerItems
    If sI.Selected = True Then               'And sI.HasData = True
        ReDim Preserve ShortList(i)
        ShortList(i) = sI.Value
        i = i + 1
    End If
Next
IL = ShortList
End Function

Sub Second()
Dim vs, i%, sc As SlicerCache, s$
s = ""
Set sc = ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_person")
If sc.OLAP Then
    vs = sc.VisibleSlicerItemsList
    For i = LBound(vs) To UBound(vs)
        s = s & vs(i) & vbLf
    Next
    MsgBox s
End If
End Sub
