Question!

I have a workbook with 20 different pivot tables. Is there any easy way to find all the pivot tables and refresh them in VBA?

Even we can refresh particular connection and in turn it will refresh all the pivots linked to it.

For this code I have created slicer from table present in Excel:

Sub UpdateConnection()
        Dim ServerName As String
        Dim ServerNameRaw As String
        Dim CubeName As String
        Dim CubeNameRaw As String
        Dim ConnectionString As String

        ServerNameRaw = ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_ServerName").VisibleSlicerItemsList(1)
        ServerName = Replace(Split(ServerNameRaw, "[")(3), "]", "")

        CubeNameRaw = ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_CubeName").VisibleSlicerItemsList(1)
        CubeName = Replace(Split(CubeNameRaw, "[")(3), "]", "")

        If CubeName = "All" Or ServerName = "All" Then
            MsgBox "Please Select One Cube and Server Name", vbOKOnly, "Slicer Info"
        Else
            ConnectionString = GetConnectionString(ServerName, CubeName)
            UpdateAllQueryTableConnections ConnectionString, CubeName
        End If
    End Sub

    Function GetConnectionString(ServerName As String, CubeName As String)
        Dim result As String
        result = "OLEDB;Provider=MSOLAP.5;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=" & CubeName & ";Data Source=" & ServerName & ";MDX Compatibility=1;Safety Options=2;MDX Missing Member Mode=Error;Update Isolation Level=2"
        '"OLEDB;Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=" & CubeName & ";Data Source=" & ServerName & ";Use Procedure for Prepare=1;Auto Translate=True;Packet Size=4096;Use Encryption for Data=False;Tag with column collation when possible=False"
        GetConnectionString = result
    End Function

    Function GetConnectionString(ServerName As String, CubeName As String)
    Dim result As String
    result = "OLEDB;Provider=MSOLAP.5;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=" & CubeName & ";Data Source=" & ServerName & ";MDX Compatibility=1;Safety Options=2;MDX Missing Member Mode=Error;Update Isolation Level=2"
    GetConnectionString = result
End Function

Sub UpdateAllQueryTableConnections(ConnectionString As String, CubeName As String)
    Dim cn As WorkbookConnection
    Dim oledbCn As OLEDBConnection
    Dim Count As Integer, i As Integer
    Dim DBName As String
    DBName = "Initial Catalog=" + CubeName

    Count = 0
    For Each cn In ThisWorkbook.Connections
        If cn.Name = "ThisWorkbookDataModel" Then
            Exit For
        End If

        oTmp = Split(cn.OLEDBConnection.Connection, ";")
        For i = 0 To UBound(oTmp) - 1
            If InStr(1, oTmp(i), DBName, vbTextCompare) = 1 Then
                Set oledbCn = cn.OLEDBConnection
                oledbCn.SavePassword = True
                oledbCn.Connection = ConnectionString
                oledbCn.Refresh
                Count = Count + 1
            End If
        Next
    Next

    If Count = 0 Then
         MsgBox "Nothing to update", vbOKOnly, "Update Connection"
    ElseIf Count > 0 Then
        MsgBox "Update & Refresh Connection Successfully", vbOKOnly, "Update Connection"
    End If
End Sub


The code

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
    Dim PvtTbl As PivotTable
        Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit
        For Each PvtTbl In Worksheets("Sales Details").PivotTables
        PvtTbl.RefreshTable
        Next
End Sub 

works fine.

The code is used in the activate sheet module, thus it displays a flicker/glitch when the sheet is activated.



Yes.

ThisWorkbook.RefreshAll

Or, if your Excel version is old enough,

Dim Sheet as WorkSheet, Pivot as PivotTable
For Each Sheet in ThisWorkbook.WorkSheets
    For Each Pivot in Sheet.PivotTables
        Pivot.RefreshTable
        Pivot.Update
    Next
Next
