Hi!

I just started using vba.

I`ve recorded a macro, that first make a pivot, and then do a calculation on the pivot result.

I understand the problem is the hard coding, especially when adding a New sheet etc. But how can I make this work; please explain the - I Guess this has alot of crap in it, because of the recorder. I need to understand the basics.

Code:
[COLOR=#333333] Sheets.Add[/COLOR]
<code style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; font-style: inherit;">    ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _        "Ark 1!R1C1:R10301C54", Version:=xlPivotTableVersion14).CreatePivotTable _        TableDestination:="Ark1!R3C1", TableName:="Pivottabell1", DefaultVersion _        :=xlPivotTableVersion14    Sheets("Ark1").Select    Cells(3, 1).Select    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").PivotFields("K_ID")        .Orientation = xlRowField        .Position = 1    End With    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").PivotFields("K_NAVN")        .Orientation = xlRowField        .Position = 2    End With    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").PivotFields("TARIFF")        .Orientation = xlRowField        .Position = 3    End With    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").AddDataField ActiveSheet.PivotTables( _        "Pivottabell1").PivotFields("VEKT"), "Summer av VEKT", xlSum    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").PivotFields("VERDI")        .Orientation = xlRowField        .Position = 4    End With    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").RowAxisLayout xlTabularRow    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Pivottabell1").RepeatAllLabels xlRepeatLabels    Range("F4").Select    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-2]/RC[-1]"    Range("F4").Select    Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("F4:F9679")    Range("F4:F9679").Select    Columns("F:F").Select    Selection.NumberFormat = "#,##0.00"    Range("F3").Select    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Gj_snitt"    Range("F9").Select </code></pre>[COLOR=#333333]End Sub[/COLOR]
