CalculatedMember Object (Excel)

Represents the calculated fields, calculated items, and named sets for PivotTables with Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) data sources.

Use the Add method or the Item property of the CalculatedMembers collection to return a CalculatedMember object.

With a CalculatedMember object you can check the validity of a calculated field or item in a PivotTable using the IsValid property.

Note Note

The IsValid property will return True if the PivotTable is not currently connected to the data source. Use the MakeConnection method before testing the IsValid property.

The following example notifies the user if the calculated member is valid or not. This example assumes a PivotTable exists on the active worksheet that contains either a valid or invalid calculated member.

Sub CheckValidity() 
 Dim pvtTable As PivotTable 
 Dim pvtCache As PivotCache 
 Set pvtTable = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1) 
 Set pvtCache = Application.ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Item(1) 
 ' Handle run-time error if external source is not an OLEDB data source. 
 On Error GoTo Not_OLEDB 
 ' Check connection setting and make connection if necessary. 
 If pvtCache.IsConnected = False Then 
 End If 
 ' Check if calculated member is valid. 
 If pvtTable.CalculatedMembers.Item(1).IsValid = True Then 
 MsgBox "The calculated member is valid." 
 MsgBox "The calculated member is not valid." 
 End If 
End Sub
