Excel 2007 automatically displays new pivot charts on the same worksheet as the pivot table. However, if you move the pivot chart to its own sheet in the workbook, you may find it easier to customize and work with it. You can always move the chart back to the worksheet later, if you prefer.

Click the PivotChart Tools Design tab on the Ribbon.

If the PivotChart Tools contextual tab doesn’t appear at the end of your Ribbon, click anywhere on the pivot chart to make this tab reappear.

Click the Move Chart button in the Location group at the far right of the Design tab.

Excel opens a Move Chart dialog box.

Click the New Sheet option button.

The default name Chart1 is highlighted in the accompanying text box.

(Optional) Enter a more descriptive name for the chart.

This name will appear on the sheet tab for the new chart sheet.

Click OK.

Click OK.

The Move Chart dialog box closes and the pivot chart now appears on a new chart sheet.

About the book author:

Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the most recent being Excel Workbook For Dummies and Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 For Dummies, and the most popular being Excel 2003 For Dummies and Excel 2003 All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies. He started out training business users on how to use IBM personal computers and their attendant computer software in the rough and tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus 1-2-3 in the mid-80s of the last century. After working for a number of independent training firms, Greg went on to teach semester-long courses in spreadsheet and database management software at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing. For Dummies books are, of course, his all-time favorites to write because they enable him to write to his favorite audience: the beginner. They also enable him to use humor (a key element to success in the training room) and, most delightful of all, to express an opinion or two about the subject matter at hand.
Greg received his doctorate degree in Humanities in Philosophy and Religion with a concentration in Asian Studies and Comparative Religion last May. Everyone is glad that Greg was finally able to get out of school before he retired.
