HypSetPOV() sets the POV for the selected ad hoc worksheet. This function does not support data forms; for forms, use HypSetPages.

To set the POV more efficiently, HypSetDimensions may be used instead of HypSetPOV.


HypSetPOV(vtSheetName, ParamArray MemberList())

ByVal vtSheetName As Variant

ParamArray MemberList() As Variant


vtSheetName: The name of worksheet on which to run the function. If vtSheetName is Null or Empty, the active worksheet is used.

ParamArray MemberList(): A list of strings that describe the member combination for which a data value will be retrieved. If MemberList is null or empty, the top level value is used.

Return Value

Returns 0 if successful; otherwise, returns the appropriate error code. If you use this function on a form instead of an ad hoc worksheet, error -69 (deprecated VBA) is returned.
