Hello,

I have a few sheets in an Excel workbook. Each sheet contains a pivot table. I then have a summary sheet that contains columns from each of these pivot tables. An example of the original data looks like this:
TimeDescTempPrg_FreqMeas_FreqTest 1Test 2Test 3
1/0/1900 0:00​
Band1
25​
100​
101​

1/0/1900 0:00​

122​

19.5​

1/0/1900 0:00​

An example of a pivot table derived from this data is:
Sum of Test 1Column Labels
Row Labels
-30​
25​
50​
Grand Total
100
11​
10​
9​
30​
120
21​
20​
19​
60​
130
31​
30​
29​
90​
Grand Total
63​
60​
57​
180​

Where I can usually change which Test to display, either Test 1, Test 2 or Test 3.

I then have a summary sheet, showing data from each tab based on the Test being selected. The cells in the summary sheet is a simple =TabCell. I want to show the same Test # on the summary sheet from each sheet. However, in order to do so, I have to go through each sheet, and update the same Test to display in each of the sheets, in order to correctly update the summary sheet.

Is it possible to update the summary sheet to show if I select Test 1 (for example), that all the pivot tables on each sheet, gets updated with the Test 1 filter, which in turn updates the summary page with just the Test 1 data?

If it is possible, how to go about doing this? Can it be done via a formula in the summary sheet or do I need a VBA script?

Any help will be sincerely appreciated! Thanks in advance.
