    Dim ShF As Shape
    Dim ShM As Shape
    'specify a slicer
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Set ShF = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Column1")
    Set ShM = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Column2")
    'change position of the slicer
    With Windows(1).VisibleRange.Cells(1, 1)
        ShF.Top = .Top
        ShF.Left = .Left + 300
        ShM.Top = .Top

Okay, so the title says "How To Keep Slicer Of Pivot Table Moving With Worksheet Scrolling In Excel?", but this VBA code only does it for the current selected cell, how can we do it for the scrolling of the workbook, and not just the selected cell?

I have 4 slicers which have been grouped together by selecting all 4 and the right clicking to use the group command.

Is it possible to assign this VBA by a group? How do you label the group and write the VBA to recognize it as one?

What does the first row indicate and how do we customize it to suit our slicer?
I'm very confused about that on basically every line.

Dear Katie
I don't know if I totally understand your question.
As I mentioned in above Notes, you need to replace Column1 and Column2 with the names of your slicers in the code in order to keep your slicer scrolling with the worksheet.

Hi,
Thank you for this VBA.

I have absolutely no idea about VBA and hence my question.

I used this VBA and I had a question.
How can i alter this VBA so that it works only for one sheet.

Right now, I have 8 sheets and every time i go to another sheet, it fails and asks me to end or debug.
I have done exactly the way as shown above.


This is my VBA here..
Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Dim ShF As Shape
Dim ShM As Shape
'specify a slicer
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set ShF = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Client 1")
Set ShM = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Reminder 1")
'change position of the slicer
With Windows(1).VisibleRange.Cells(1, 1)
ShF.Top = .Top + 2
ShF.Left = .Left + 475
ShM.Top = .Top + 180
ShM.Left = .Left + 475
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub


Please help.

Dear John,
Shift to the worksheet you want the VBA code only work for, then right click the Sheet tab and select View Code from the context menu.
And then copy and paste below VBA code into the opening Code window. See below screenshot:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim ShF As Shape
Dim ShM As Shape
'specify a slicer
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set ShF = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Fruit")
Set ShM = ActiveSheet.Shapes("Sale")
'change position of the slicer
With Windows(1).VisibleRange.Cells(1, 1)
ShF.Top = .Top
ShF.Left = .Left + 300
ShM.Top = .Top
ShM.Left = .Left + 100
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Hi,I have updated my code as you have indicated. The slicer no longer scrolls along with the window however if I click in a new cell then the slicer will move. Is this the correct behavior?
