My second error handler doesn't work. I am getting a Run-time error from the line after "On Error GoTo Error_Handler_2" in this macro:

Sub Macro1()
If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("a").Position = 1 Then x = "a"
On Error GoTo Error_Handler
If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("e").Position = 2 Then x = "e"
Exit Sub
Error_Handler:
On Error GoTo Error_Handler_2
If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("f").Position = 1 Then x = "f"

Error_Handler_2:
MsgBox "Unsolvable Error"
End Sub

I thought that a second "On Eror GoTo" would work within the first "On Eror GoTo" This is for a Pivot table that only has fields "a", "b" and "c", no "e" or "f" fields. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
 

Excel Facts

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.
Try this (untested):
Rich (BB code):
Error_Handler:
On Error GoTo 0
On Error GoTo Error_Handler_2
'rest of code

Since the statement producing the error is immediately before your second error handler try this:
Rich (BB code):
Error_Handler:
On Error GoTo 0
On Error Resume Next
If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("f").Position = 1 Then x = "f"
MsgBox "Unsolvable Error"
End Sub

Nope, still getting the same error. It's as if VBA doesn't recognize "On Error" because it is already within an "On Error" statement.

What error are you trying to catch?

Try:

Code:
Sub Macro1()
    If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("a").Position = 1 Then x = "a"
    On Error GoTo Error_Handler
    If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("e").Position = 2 Then x = "e"
    Exit Sub
Error_Handler:
    Resume Here
Here:
    On Error GoTo Error_Handler_2
    If Sheets("Sheet5").PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields("Type").PivotItems("f").Position = 1 Then x = "f"
    Exit Sub
Error_Handler_2:
    MsgBox "Unsolvable Error"
End Sub

Andrew,
It worked like a charm. You're the man and quite deserved of the tilte "MrExcel MVP." Thank you. I will file that in my "Excel things to remember" workbook along with about a million other things.

Thanks again!
