Hi,

I tried creating a macro that would "reset" a pivot table field to show all items in the list (just clicked on the "show all" button).

With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("grouping")
.PivotItems("4-5 days").Visible = True
.PivotItems("6-7 days").Visible = True
.PivotItems("8-10 days").Visible = True
End With

The problem is that there isnt data for every list item in the pivot table and when I run the macro I get an error message:

"Unable to set the Visible property of the PivotItem class"

I think this is because it is trying to show data for "6-7 days" but currently there is no data for this list item.

Is there any (other) way a pivot table can be reset to "show all" with VBA code?

Thanks a lot

I actually found something myself on another excel website, thought I'd share with you:

Sub PivotShowItemAllVisible()
'sort is set to Manual to prevent errors, e.g.
'unable to set Visible Property of PivotItem class
Dim pt As PivotTable
Dim pf As PivotField
Dim pi As PivotItem
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
For Each pt In ActiveSheet.PivotTables
For Each pf In pt.RowFields
pf.AutoSort xlManual, pf.SourceName
For Each pi In pf.PivotItems
pi.Visible = True
Next pi
pf.AutoSort xlAscending, pf.SourceName
Next pf
Next pt
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

This works perfectly, I tried it on several pivots :) :)
