Hello Everyone,

I have a button that has a macro assigned to it, to load the pivot filters into 2 separate pivots based on certain cell values. It works about 75% of the time, but every so often it gives me an error message(when i have On Error Resume Next commented out) and the lines of code i get the errors on are:

Code:
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[LMA].[DealerId].[DealerId]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Year]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("LMA").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Year]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")
I'm not sure why I'm receiving errors for these only sometimes and other times it's working fine. I was wondering if anyone has had similar issues and has an idea why this might occur? Before doing it this way, I was doing it differently using something like with pt and then setting the pivot fields = to the desired filter, but it was also having a lot of errors so I tried to use the visible items list method. One thing I did notice is that when I right click the report filters and click field settings, sometimes it says the Name is "Year" or "DealerId", but then other times it is referencing them like this [LMA].[DealerId].[DealerId] so I'm also not sure why this is changing and not showing the same thing every time I look at it.

I have this for a report that will be used a lot within the company and I'm trying to get it so that it never errors out so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the full code:


Code:
Sub PivotFilters()




'Want to Continue Message?
If MsgBox("It will take approximately 5 minutes for this data to load. Are you sure you want to continue?", vbYesNo) = vbNo Then Exit Sub




'Declaring Variables
Dim NewFilter As String
Dim NewFilter2 As String




'Assigning Values to Variables
NewFilter = Worksheets("Market_Data").Range("R2").Value
NewFilter2 = Worksheets("Market_Data").Range("R3").Value




'Reduce lag, not show page switches while query runs
Application.ScreenUpdating = False




'Deactivate Error Macro Interruption
On Error Resume Next




'Go To Market Data Sheet
Sheets("Market_Data").Select




'Clear CanceledDealer Pivot Filter for Dealer ID and filter for value in R3 on market data spreadsheet
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[LMA].[DealerId].[DealerId]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[LMA].[DealerId].[DealerId]").VisibleItemsList = Array("[LMA].[DealerId].&[" & NewFilter2 & "]")




'Clear LMA Pivot Filter for Time, and add in the value from R2 on the market data spreadsheet
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Year]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Month]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("CanceledDealer").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Month]").VisibleItemsList = Array("[Time].[Time YM].[Month].&[" & NewFilter & "]")
        
        
'Clear LMA Pivot Filter for Time, and add in the value from R2 on the market data spreadsheet
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("LMA").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Year]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("LMA").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Month]").VisibleItemsList = Array("")
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("LMA").PivotFields("[Time].[Time YM].[Month]").VisibleItemsList = Array("[Time].[Time YM].[Month].&[" & NewFilter & "]")
     
     
'Go to Market Chart page
Sheets("Page5_New").Select
     
     
'Reduce lag, not show page switches while query runs
Application.ScreenUpdating = True




'Reactivate Error Macro Interruption
On Error GoTo 0


End Sub
