I have a sheet with Pivot Table. How do I find the source file?

If I double click on A Row, I get source file of that particular data. But I require the Base Source File.

Please help

You might try clicking on a cell in a Total row or column (if the table has such). – pnuts Apr 10 '13 at 11:23
  1. Select a cell in your Pivot Table.
  2. Go to Options > Change Data Source > Connection Properties
  3. Choose the Definition Tab and you'll see where the Pivot Table is drawing data from.
