How to disable select multiple items in pivot table?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2014-11-10

When we create a pivot table and set the option of filtered items, but, you don’t want others to apply the Select Multiple Items feature in the pivot table to upset the original data in your pivot table. In this article, I will talk about how to disable this option in pivot table.

To protect the pivot table selection from being changing, the following VBA code can help you to disable the Select Multiple Items feature. Please do as follows:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: Disable select multiple items in pivot table

Sub DisableSelection()
'Update 20141028
Dim xPF As PivotField
Set xPT = Application.ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
For Each xPF In xPT.PivotFields
    xPF.EnableItemSelection = False
Next xPF
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and the filter arrow buttons in the pivot table have been removed at once, see screenshots:

Notes:

1. If you want to enable the Select Multiple Items again, please apply the following code:

VBA code: Enable select multiple items in pivot table:

Sub DisableSelection()
'Update 20141028
Dim xPF As PivotField
Set xPT = Application.ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
For Each xPF In xPT.PivotFields
    xPF.EnableItemSelection = True
Next xPF
End Sub

2. This code is only applied to one pivot table in the active worksheet.

E se eu quiser que na tabela dinâmica a pessoa só possa filtrar 1 item de cada vez? Quero desabilitar o "Selecionar Vários Itens" só.
