How to disable select multiple items in pivot table?
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.

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