Macro to make pivot tables works in 2003 but not 2007

Hi, I have a macro that makes pivot tables based on changing data. I wrote it in Excel 2003, and it works fine still in 2003.

However, my computer was recently upgraded to Excel 2007. The code errors out whenever it hits the pivot table macro now. I tried re-recording the pivot table build in 2007 and replacing my old code, but it still errors out. Help?

Here is my original pivot table code at the section where the error happens:

    ActiveSheet.Name = "Detail"
    PivotReference = "'Detail'!R1C1:" & ActiveCell.Address
'Create Pivot Table of Total Costs $
        ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
        PivotReference).CreatePivotTable TableDestination:= _
        "'Pivot Summary'!R13C1", _
        TableName:="PivotTable2", DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion10
Here is my 2007 code, that is still getting the same error:
  ActiveSheet.Name = "Detail"
    PivotReference = "'Detail'!R1C1:" & ActiveCell.Address
ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
        PivotReference, Version:=xlPivotTableVersion12). _
        CreatePivotTable TableDestination:="Pivot Summary!R4C4", TableName:="PivotTable1" _
        , DefaultVersion:=xlPivotTableVersion12
There is additional code afterward to set up the rows, columns, values, etc... but it doesn't even get to that point, so I didn't include that code.
Any suggestions?
