I've been trying to get the Iteration Backlog worksheet to display all the data it is designed to display. The burndown chart is my last issue. I get this problem:I've unhid the Burndown data tab and cannot see to get data there. Is there a post or trick to getting data there? When I create my own report off the Analysis cube I can get data just fine.

I just noticed that when I open Excel Reports / Burndown.xlsx I don't have any data. Updating the report filters to with values that should have data doesn't fix it.
These two issues seem related. Hope that helps.

I looked for information on the error you are getting (“Unable to get the Datafields property of the Pivottable class”). I did find a bug regarding Team Foundation Server and Excel that produces this exact message. However, I am not sure this applies to your issue.
Can you tell me what version of Excel are using?
What version (including service pack) of TFS do you have installed?
Can you give me brief steps you use to get the error?

TFS 2010 RTM Standard Edition. No service packs.
I get the error by
1. Opening the iteration backlog
2. Changing the tab to Burndown
3. Clicking Update Now link in worksheet.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the quick reply. I want to test something on my end. Let me do the testing, and I plan on updating you sometime Monday.

I tried to reproduce this behavior by opening and refreshing the data in the Iteration Backlog.xlsm spreadsheet in both Excel 2007 and Excel 2010. It works without error in both cases. I had to enable macros for it to run under Excel 2007, but it did run without a problem.
