Excel version 365 - Pivot table refresh

We have been upgraded to the latest version in Excel and I am trying to refresh my pivot tables but I get the following message:
'A pivot table report cannot overlap another pivot table report'.
On my older version of excel we could overwrite this and the refresh would work. Can you advise on how the refresh can work on the latest 365 version please?

Thanks
Andrea

RE: Excel version 365 - Pivot table refresh

Hi Andrea,

Thank you for the forum question.

You get this message:

'A pivot table report cannot overlap another pivot table report'

When on refresh two or more PivotTables overlap. You must have more than one PivotTable in your report. You will need to insert enough rows or/and columns between your PivotTables to not have this overlap.

It is the same in all Excel versions two or more PivotTables cannot be on top of each other.

Sorry I am not sure What you mean by "On my older version of excel we could overwrite this and the refresh would work."

If you in the source data have added more rows the PivotTable will expand down on refresh and you will get the error if you have another PivotTable just under the first one.



Kind regards

Excel tip:

Return to the active cell after scrolling

When I scroll a long way down the screen from a selected cell, I can return to that cell with the Ctrl+Back Space shortcut. The active cell now appears in roughly the middle of the screen.

Shift+Back Space does something similar. Scroll down from the active cell and Shift+Back Space returns me to it and puts the active cell at the top of the screen; scroll up from the active cell and Shift+Back Space returns me to it and puts the active cell at the bottom of the screen.

Note also, that while Ctrl+Back Space will return me back to a selected range, Shift+Back Space only ever returns me to the active cell, which is normally at the top left-hand corner of any selected range.
