Pivot table is a very useful function for viewing or calculating data in Excel, so we may usually insert Pivot tables into a worksheet or multiple worksheets. But do you know how to delete one or all pivot tables in a worksheet or the whole workbook?

If you have multiple pivot tables in a workbook, delete them one by one is too time-consuming. Now you can use a VBA to remove them at once.

1. Press Alt + F11 to display the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. In the window, click Insert > Module to show a new module window, then copy the following VBA code into the module window.

VBA: Remove all pivot tables in the whole workbook.

Sub DeleteAllPivotTablesInWorkbook()
Dim xWs As Worksheet
Dim xPT As PivotTable
For Each xWs In Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
    For Each xPT In xWs.PivotTables
        xWs.Range(xPT.TableRange2.Address).Delete Shift:=xlUp
End Sub
3. Click Run button, then all pivot tables in the whole workbook are removed.
