Exclude Network Path In PivotTable Based on Sharepoint

  • I have an excel file linked to a sharepoint 2007 network space. Everytime I open the file, my pivot tables will not refresh, because the source of the pivottable seems to update automatically to include the network drive name on them which somehow causes a problem. Is there anyway to solve this? I put a snippet of the source in the pivottable as an example.


    "http ... /PMO/Shared%20Documents/Finance/Budget/2008/2008%20What%20If%20Budget.xls'!=WhatIf"

    The problem is that all the text prior to the "=WhatIf" causes the formula to break. When I attempt to refresh the data, excel spits out an error "Cannot open PivotTable source file '2008%What%If%Budget.xls'"

    I experience the same issue every day. I always have to change the pivot table data after saving the file to sharepoint, closing and reopening. The problem i see varies, but most often I need to add the tab name before the !$ in the data selection field. Occasionally the pivot table data is referenced by a URL which is also wrong. Impact is that the table does not refresh.

    I am having this problem with an Excel 2003 workbook (10 pivot tables) and a SharePoint folder. Somehow, it replaces my named range (called 'TheDataSet') in the PivotTable wizard (step 2) with a string "'http://sharepointcentral/marketing/enterprise/Shared%20Documents/FOO.xls'!TheDataSet". Apparently, there is no solution to this issue?
