VBA error with Pivot Cache

  Asked By: Darla    Date: Aug 25    Category: MS Office    Views: 1361

I have an Excel file which extracting data from a database with a
webapplication. After creating the report I open the file, and run a macro,
which creates a Pivot table. Now I get an error message "Cannot create Pivot
table source file <& filename>". Strangely, I don't get this error message when
I save the file first Checking into the problem, I found that once I open the
file from IE6.0 the Excel header shows the file name with the appendix [1]
(example: Prww2a-EXCELacf21669baaa40d[1].xls ), while ActiveWorkbook.Name shows
this file's name with the appendix (1). The difference is appendix [1] vs. (1).

When developing the macro, I used Netscape 7.1 and did not have this error;
thus it might be it's only occurring in IE6.0

The error occurs in this line when creating the PivotCache:
ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
MWS & "!R1C1:R" & LRow & "C" & LCol).CreatePivotTable
TableDestination:="", _

The parameters are: MWS = main Worksheet name, LRow = last row of data, LCol =
last column of data.

Any idea why I get this error? Any way to suppress the appendix [1] when opening
in Excel? Unfortunately saving the file first is not an option.
