Just like the title says, I have a fairly large amount of data reporting into a pivot table. I made this on windows and it works perfectly fine. I sent it over to someone with a Mac (their excel is fully updated), and after they modify the source data and try to refresh the pivot table, Excel crashes. I did some searching, and it seems that a lot of people have had this issue, but I haven't been able to find a solution for it. Anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks!

What OS version are they using? 10.8.3 being the latest. 10.7 would not cause any crash. early version of 10.8 may cause crashes. This said, in my limited experience, Excel 2011 is extremely buggy and crashes repeatedly, not necessarily because of PT.
What version of excel are they using? I assumed 2011, but it could be either 2008, 2004 or X older than that is quite improbable...

This is quite an annoying problem. Though I don't know the exact reason of it but to solve your problem open the concerned "PT", click on change sources and increase or decrease the data range by one line. Now you may refresh your PT and it is supposed to respond positively.

Good Luck
