Hi all,

I have a macro that sorts a pivot whenever i press a button, the problem is when i run the macro with the pivot window hidden the macro fails, can anyone give me a had on this?

See below code used:

Sub sort_pivot()


' sort_pivot Macro


Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayStatusBar = False


Sheets("Pivots").Select
Range("c6").Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("pivot#").PivotFields("field").AutoSort _
xlDescending, "Sum of ****", ActiveSheet.PivotTables( _
"pivot#").PivotColumnAxis.PivotLines(2), 1
Sheets("search").Select
Range("a1").Select
MsgBox "Sort Completed"

Application.DisplayStatusBar = True


End Sub



best regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel, What do you mean by "the Pivot window hidden"? Is the worksheet hidden, or the rows, or is a different workbook active?
