The last 2 sections of the code is what you want but im pasting everything so that you can see exactly how It runs start to finish with everything thats defined etc. Pivot Tables("Pivot Table1") 'Default value of Manual Update property is False so a Pivot Table report is recalculated automatically on each change.

I currently have a spreadsheet in which Colum C is date time.
I want to search through existing Excel files with a macro, but I don't want to display those files when they're opened by the code. Visible = False 'Visible is False by default, so this isn't necessary Dim book As Excel. If Patrick Mc Donald's solution is too burdensome due to the overhead of starting a second instance of Excel, then the best solution I've found is to minimize the time that the opened workbook is visible by re-activating the original window as quickly as possible: Dim Temp Wk Bk As Workbook Dim Current Win As Window Set Current Win = Active Window Set Temp Wk Bk = Workbooks. Activate 'Allows only a VERY brief flash of the opened workbook Temp Wk Bk. Visible = False 'Only necessary if you also need to prevent 'the user from manually accessing the opened 'workbook before it is closed. In excel, hide the workbooks, and save them as hidden. Edit: upon re-reading, it became clear that these workbooks are not part of your application.
Is there a way to have them open "in the background", so to speak? 'Operate on the new workbook, which is not visible to the user, then close it... Such a solution would be inappropriate for user workbooks.
There are a few tutorials floating around on the web with the particulars of what you can and can't do accessing a sheet this way. :) The problem with both i Devlop's and Ashok's answers is that the fundamental problem is an Excel design flaw (apparently) in which the Open method fails to respect the Application. Consequently, setting it to False is of no benefit to this problem. You can then store the price list on a shared location on a network somewhere and make it read-only.
Borrowing the connection string from a project I've used it on, it will look kinda like this: Note that "Registration List" is the name of the tab in the workbook. For example if the workbook contains product names and price data it can be hidden and you can show an Excel file that represents an invoice with drop downs for product that validates from that price list.
Visible = False End Select Next Pivot Item 'Removes pivot items from pivot table except those cases defined below (by looping through) For Each Pivot Item In Pvt Tbl. Current Page (there have been reports of bugs while looping through numerous filter options). Add xl Caption Equals, Value1:= "K123223" Thank you for your interest in this question. Hope this helps others...i found it very difficult to find code that did this the "proper way" rather than using code similar to the macro recorder. Clear End If Next Pvt Tbl 'A Pivot Cache represents the memory cache for a Pivot Table report. Create a new Pivot Table cache, and then create a new Pivot Table report based on the cache.
