One pivot table cannot overlap another pivot issue.




I have a sheet containing 10-15 pivot tables in a page with same
source data. When I change the data and do a refresh on pivot. I get
Error saying that "A pivot table report can not overlap another pivot
table report.". I know the root cause as it is explicitly given inthe
error message.

As of now i try to fix this by adding some rows and columns in between
two pivots. It is a little time consuming process. So, looking forward
for any optimum approach, may be some sort of macros or so..

I understand one way would be to delete all the pivots and re-build
them, but applying filter is again a teduous task. Any other
alternatives ? please suggest.

Thanks in advance,

The optimium solution is to rebuild your tables. There is no substitute for
doing it right. Anything else is just going to be band-aides on a poor design.
