CHAPTER 5Extracting Pivot Table Data

After you create a pivot table, you may want to extract some of the summarized data for use in other parts of the workbook. The GetPivotData worksheet function can be used for retrieving specific data from the pivot table. Another way to extract data is to use the Drill to Details feature, which returns records from the source data for the selected pivot table cell. Finally, the Show Pages feature can be used to create copies of the pivot table on newly inserted worksheets.
