    I successfully setup this Macro within my workbook. The only snag I've hit is when I have an additional unlocked pivot in the workbook (on a different tab) and I run the Macro within the unlocked pivot tab, an Error occurs. It's an easy fix by deleting the non-locked pivot tab. It also doesn't result in an error if I run the Macro in the locked tab. However, I'm wondering if there is a way to enable Macro to work across Locked and Unlocked pivots?
