Using a macro for a pivot table RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I have read the question above and the answers provided in this thread. However, I am still struggling to record a Macro template with a Pivot Table. I am using a Mac and Excel 2011. 

    My steps involve the following:

    1) I import a CSV file

    2) I format the cells (time of day into 12:00 am format)

    3) I create a simple pivot table (time of day and the total site visits)

    4)I group the time of day and colour code the total site visits

    Now, this is where I get confused. Usually, I delete all the information so my cells remain empty, but remain with working macros. With the pivot table, I have deleted the pivot table and left it in its original state but nothing has worked yet.

    I have tried importing new data into my Macro template (with a pivot table) but I keep receiving the 1004 error, so I need to debug the code. Now I have no knowledge of VBA but I when I hit "debug", it says I need to delete/change some code (as you have done in the thread above). However, i never deleted any sheets (as the user did above) so, I don't know where I am going wrong.

    Any help would be most welcome. Below is the code that is appearing on my erroneous macro:

    Sub Macro5()
    ' Macro5 Macro

        Selection.NumberFormat = "[$-F400]h:mm:ss AM/PM"
        Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A8:A175")
        ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
            "Test 1.csv!R7C1:R175C2", Version:=xlPivotTableVersion14).CreatePivotTable _
            TableDestination:="Sheet1!R3C1", TableName:="PivotTable4", DefaultVersion _
        Cells(3, 1).Select
        ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").AddDataField ActiveSheet.PivotTables( _
            "PivotTable4").PivotFields("Sessions"), "Sum of Sessions", xlSum
        Selection.Group Start:=True, End:=True, Periods:=Array(False, False, True, _
            False, False, False, False)
        Selection.FormatConditions.AddColorScale ColorScaleType:=3
        Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(1).Type = _
        With Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(1).FormatColor
            .Color = 7039480
            .TintAndShade = 0
        End With
        Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(2).Type = _
        Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(2).Value = 50
        With Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(2).FormatColor
            .Color = 8711167
            .TintAndShade = 0
        End With
        Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(3).Type = _
        With Selection.FormatConditions(1).ColorScaleCriteria(3).FormatColor
            .Color = 8109667
            .TintAndShade = 0
        End With
        Selection.FormatConditions(1).ScopeType = xlSelectionScope
        Sheets("Test 1.csv").Select
        Sheets("Test 1.csv").Move Before:=Sheets(1)
        ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-598
    End Sub

  • Hi,

    Base on my test in excel 2013, it works fine.

    You said your excel version is excel 2011, there isn’t that version of office.

    >> I keep receiving the 1004 error

    Does it has detail error message?

    >> it says I need to delete/change some code

    Could you provide the screenshot here?

    On the other hand, you may share a sample file on the OneDrive.
