Scenario: you have a pivot table containing sales data that needs updating with new data In order to demonstrate how to update the data in your pivot table, let's look at the example we used in our lesson on How to Create A Pivot Table link opens in a new window , where we summarized several months of sales data by different sales people in our team.
Here's a sample of the sales data we used note the number of rows - obviously there is a lot more sales data in our report than is shown here : And here's the resulting Pivot Table: Change the Source Data for your Pivot Table In order to change the source data for your Pivot Table, you can follow these steps: Add your new data to the existing data table.
In our case, we'll simply paste the additional rows of data into the existing sales data table. Here's a shot of some of our additional data. As you can see, we now have rows of data: The next step is to click inside your pivot table so that the Pivot Table tools options appear in the ribbon toolbar, as shown here: From there, click Options in Excel or earlier, or Analyze in Excel This will show you a range of different options for managing your pivot table.
We are interested in just two buttons on this toolbar - the Refresh button and the Change Data Source button: It's important to understand what these buttons do, and how they differ: The Refresh button will update your pivot table to reflect any changes in your existing data , such as any changes to our sales data due to customer returns.
Using the Refresh button won't automatically pick up any new data in your table unless you're using Excel's Table feature as the source for your pivot table - we'll come to that shortly. Note that you can also choose to refresh your data by right-clicking anywhere in your pivot table and choosing Refresh from the menu.
The Change Data Source button will allow you specify a new data source for your pivot table. This is the option we want. Note that we're not actually changing to a new data source, we're simply going to update the existing data source to include the new data. Click the Change Data Source button to see the following dialog box: As you can see, the data range for our existing sales report pivot table is already selected.
You can do one of a couple of things here: Manually enter the correct data range for your updated data table. In our case, this would mean changing to , since the last row of our table has changed from row to row Select the new range from the Data worksheet by selecting all the cells you want to include. In many cases the second of these two options may be the simplest.
The reason is that when you click the Change Data Source button, Excel automatically switches to the worksheet holding the data, and highlights the current data range for you, ready to modify, like this: if you're wondering why the rows between 5 and are hidden, it's because this spreadsheet has Freeze Panes turned on, so rows are always visible no matter how far down our spreadsheet we scroll.
You can learn how to do this in our lesson on how to Freeze or Lock Rows in an Excel worksheet. Then release all three keys.

All you have to do is just create a pivot table with your source data and after that change the source with the named range using the same method which I have used in the first method of tables. Once you add new data in your source sheet, just refresh your pivot table.
In above formula, I have used offset function to create a dynamic range. I have mentioned cell A1 as the starting point and then without mentioning rows and columns, I have specified the height and width of the range by using COUNTA Function. The only thing you have to take care that there should be no blank cell in between your column A and row 1. Most of the people love to use VBA codes.
