Setting Pivot Cache Run-Time error 13: Type Mismatch


Board Regular
Feb 17, 2014
Thanks for any input on this. I'm trying to make a simple pivot table that is taking data from sheet "5 Month Trending May 15" and putting it onto my Pivot Table sheet called "Errors By Criticality - Pivot".

When I try to set the pivot cache range with the create method it's returning a runtime error of type mismatch. I've checked the parameters and it looks like I'm setting it up correctly. I did try to specify the PivotTable version and was still getting the same error. My code is below.

I'm assuming it's something to do with the pvtCache variable or the way I'm setting it to the range but I can't figure any solutions out

Sub PivotTableCode()

Dim pvtCache As PivotCache 
Dim pvt As PivotTable
Dim pf As PivotField
Dim pi As PivotItem 
'Set the cache of the pivot table
Sheets("5 Month Trending May 15").Select
Set pvtCache = ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(xlDatabase, Range("A2:H38"))

'create the Pivot Table
Sheets("Errors by Criticality - Pivot").Select
Set pvt = ActiveSheet.PivotTables.Add(pvtCache, Range("AP2"), "MyPivotTable") 
End Sub
