Thanks for the screenshot.

Could you please provide a sample Excel file (please zip the file prior attaching) and some more screenshots (taken in MS Excel) with step details (on how to set/retrieve those options in MS Excel (2016/2019) manually), we will check it soon.

@Amjad_Sahi Thank you for your response.

In the attached excel we have slicers and report connections in pivot sheet and summary sheet.

When we click on slicer it is showing report connections but those are unchecked by default we need to check those using Aspose.cells

There are some tips for you:

  1. Adds Slicer.AddPivotConnection(PivotTable pivot) method which adds PivotTable connection

  2. Adds Slicer.RemovePivotConnection(PivotTable pivot) method which removes PivotTable connection

  3. Your source file has some issues, the slicer has been linked to the PivotTable, but it is not shown in the file. Please check the compressed file “”. (47.3 KB)

  4. When we directly add or delete the link between the slicer and the PivotTable in the source file named “Acme_Target_2104061010_WklySalsPIV.xlsx”, we don’t get the correct result. If we use Excel 2016 to open and save the source file, and then add or delete the link between the slicer and the pivot table, we can get the correct (2.0 MB)

The sample code in .NET:
Workbook wb = new Workbook(filePath + “sample.xlsx”);
PivotTableCollection pivots = wb.Worksheets[“Sheet1”].PivotTables;
SlicerCollection slicers = wb.Worksheets[“Sheet1”].Slicers;
//get the slicer which needs to add pivot connections
Slicer slicer = slicers[0];
int pivotCount = pivots.Count;
for (int i = 0; i < pivotCount; i++)
PivotTable tempPivot = pivots[i];
wb.Save(filePath + “sample_add.xlsx”);

wb.Save(filePath + “sample_remove.xlsx”);

Your issue should be fixed in it.
