PivotTable.Clear() Method

Removes all fields, formatting and report filters from the PivotTable report.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v21.2.Core.dll


void Clear()


The Clear method does not delete the pivot table, but resets it to the initial state, before any fields were added to it. The data connection, PivotTable cache and the report location are preserved.

To completely delete the PivotTable report from the worksheet, remove it from the worksheet’s PivotTableCollection by using the PivotTableCollection.Remove method.


If the pivot table you wish to clear is based on the same data as other pivot tables in a document, the Clear method will also remove grouping, calculated fields, and calculated items from other shared PivotTable reports.


Dim worksheet As Worksheet = workbook.Worksheets("Report1")
workbook.Worksheets.ActiveWorksheet = worksheet

' Clear the pivot table.
