Excel - getpivotdata function

Excel - getpivotdata function

I have multiple worksheets whereby cells are referencing to pivot tables.

There is no way to convert excel references to pivot table references other than ediing formulas cell by cell and replacing references with GETPIVOTDATA option on.
If you work with pivot tables this way, maybe it is worth to invest in using cube functions working with data model instead, an example here.

Hi combo
I thought that might be the case with having to edit cell by cell...
