This color coded pivot table illustrates the Row Range, the Column Range, the Data Body Range, and the Data Label Range.

Several of these will be used in the procedure below.

A reader named Julie has a regular chart that is linked to a pivot table.

When the pivot table is pivoted or updated, it may have different numbers of rows and columns, and the chart must be updated manually. Count On Error Go To 0 If i Rows 0 Then Set r Cats = Intersect(r Values.

Is it possible to set Data Pilot tables to auto-refresh?

I have an MS Excel 2007 file that I'm opening and every time I do I have to click on the Data Pilot and manually refresh it in order for the dropdowns to appear.

Drag the Item field to the Rows area, the Category field to the Columns area, and the Value field to the Data area. Now create a regular chart from this pivot table, using series in columns, one series per item in the Category field, Category entries (alpha and beta) as series names, and the item names as category (X) axis labels.
