How to apply the same filter to multiple pivot tables?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2014-11-29

Sometimes, you may create several pivot tables based on the same data source, and now you filter one pivot table and want other pivot tables are filtered with the same way as well, that means, you want to change multiple pivot table filters at once in Excel. This article, I will talk about the usage of a new feature Slicer in Excel 2010 and 2013.

If you are using Excel 2010 or 2013, there is a w feature – Slicer may help you quickly filter multiple pivot tables at once, please do as follows:

1. Create your used pivot tables based on the same data source as following screenshot shown:

2. Then click any cell in PivotTable1 to display the PivotTable Tools tab, and then click Options > Insert Slicer > Insert Slicer, see screenshot:

3. In the Insert Slicers dialog box, check a field you need to use as a filter, and then click OK to create a slicer, see screenshots:

Thanks, helpful and quick

Thank you this is helpful, but if e.g. in your example in February there is no KTE (instead of 188) the February list is getting shorter than the other lists are. This causes issues in further proceeding the figures (and looks ugly&confusing).
Is there a solution for that?
Thank you very much!

Wat heeft u nu gedaan om dit te laten werken?
Ik heb hetzelfde probleem dat ik draaitabellen heb op 2 werkbladen maar ik kan maar een rapportverbinding maken van 1 draaitabel.
De mogelijkheid moet zich toch aanbieden om meerdere draaitabellen te selecteren?

It doesn't seem to work if the pivot table are not on the same page...


I don't see the connection to the other table on an other worksheet...
