I want to create a macro that executes when a new pivot table is created. I had all the code that I want to execute, but I couldn´t find any event that triggers the macro when a new pivot table is created. Please help me!

If you want the event to be triggered for a specific worksheet, you can use Worksheet_PivotTableUpdate. The event handler must be placed in the code module for the sheet (in the Visual Basic Editor under Project Explorer (Ctrl+R), right-click the sheet, and select View Code).

VBA Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_PivotTableUpdate(ByVal Target As PivotTable)
    'etc
    '
    '
End Sub

If you want the event to be triggered for any worksheet, you can use Workbook_SheetPivotTableUpdate. The event handler must be placed in the code module for ThisWorkbook (in the Visual Basic Editor under Project Explorer (Ctrl+R), right-click ThisWorkbook, and select View Code).

VBA Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetPivotTableUpdate(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As PivotTable)
    'etc
    '
    '
End Sub

Hope this helps!
