How to Move an Excel 2007 Pivot Chart to Its Own Sheet

By Greg Harvey

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.

1Click 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.

2Click the Move Chart button in the Location group at the far right of the Design tab.

Excel opens a Move Chart dialog box.

3Click the New Sheet option button.

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

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

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

5Click OK.

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