Code:
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Agent Name").CurrentPage = MyName
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Date").CurrentPage = dselect

Iam trying to update my pivot table with this code and i am getting an error "unable to set the currentpage property pf the pivotfield class"
 

Excel Facts

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.
What's in the variables MyName and dselect and which line causes the error? What would the code look like if strings were used instead of variables?

the second line causes the error, the variables my name is for the agent name and dselect is for the date.

If you record a macro while selecting a date from the page field what do you get? I think you will find that the date is a string.

Code:
Sub Macro1()
'
' Macro1 Macro
' Macro recorded 10/03/2011 by i81849
'
'
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Agent Name").CurrentPage = _
        "Karunakaran, Vipin"
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Date")
        .PivotItems("02/03/2011").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("03/03/2011").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("04/03/2011").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("07/03/2011").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("08/03/2011").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("(blank)").Visible = False
    End With
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Date")
        .PivotItems("01/03/2011").Visible = False
        .PivotItems("04/03/2011").Visible = True
    End With
End Sub
This is the recorded macro,but instead of selecting the value, I am trying to get the value from the user.

I modified the code like this but still getting the same error.

Code:
Sub Macro1()
Dim dselect As String
dselect = Range("C1")

    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Agent Name").CurrentPage = _
        "Alex, George"
    ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Date").CurrentPage = CStr(dselect)
End Sub
