I love the Slicer, but how do I link a slicer for different data sheets e.g.: Expense Report on one tab and Labor report on another tab, as I find that as long as you use pivot tables off the same data you can link the Pivot tables using Slicer connections; but can you link Pivot tables between 2 different sets of data???

Can Excel fill bagel flavors?
You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

A slicer can only be used for PivotTables that share the same PivotCache- which also means they need to share the same source data.

VBA can be used to filter PivotTables to match the filtering on a PivotTable that is treated as the master.
