Pivot Tables By Category

I am trying to create individual workbooks for each manager from a master workbook. Each workbook will contain 3 pivot tables on a single sheet.

I am using the following code.

My problem is that the pivot table just gets copied and pasted in as values. Ideally I want the actual pivot table. I have tried other ways of accomplishing this like using Pivot table pages - It was getting messy since it just created all the sheets in the one workbook. Has anyone got any suggestions?

CODE -->

Option Explicit
Sub GetAllEmployeeSelections2()

    Const filePath As String = "H:\Reports\" 'save location for new files

    Dim wb As Workbook
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim pvt As PivotTable

    Set wb = ThisWorkbook
    Set ws = wb.Worksheets("Summary")
    Set pvt = ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1")

    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    Dim pvtField As PivotField
    Dim item As Variant

    Set pvtField = pvt.PivotFields("Mgr")

    pvtField.CurrentPage = "(All)"

     For Each item In pvtField.PivotItems
        item.Visible = True
     Next item

    pvt.ShowPages "Mgr"

    For Each item In pvtField.PivotItems

        Dim newBook As Workbook
        Set newBook = Workbooks.Add

        With newBook

            .Worksheets(1).Name = item.Name


            Worksheets(item.Name).Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats

           .SaveAs FileName:=filePath & item.Name & ".xlsx"


        End With

        Set newBook = Nothing

    Next item

    Application.DisplayAlerts = False

    For Each item In pvtField.PivotItems


    Next item

    Application.DisplayAlerts = True

    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub 

RE: Pivot Tables By Category


If you are creating a workbook with pivot tables for or each manager, the implication is that any manager can ALSO get the data for other managers by correctly manipulating the their pivot table, ALL of which are linked to the same source data.


My problem is that the pivot table just gets copied and pasted in as values.


Worksheets(item.Name).Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats 

Why not simply COPY the Sheet as a new workbook?
