VBA Macro set column width in a Pivot Table on creation


Board Regular
Aug 26, 2015
For the life of me I can't find where I can set the Pivot Table's column size for just xlColumnField and I've spent far too much time on this simple little thing. grrrr

I have several macros that auto generate pivot tables based upon criteria. I want the Autofit columns to be turned off after the PT is created and set the Column Fields width to 8

        Columns("B:F").ColumnWidth = 8
doesn't work

    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable2")        .ColumnWidth = 8
    End With
doesn't work obviously.

nor does
    With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable2")
        .AutoFit = False
        End With
        PivotTable2.HasAutoFormat = False
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Edit: I should probably clarify that I only need to change the pivot table widths on this new PT creation. Not the other PT's that are created within the macro.
