The normal Bold feature can’t help us to un-bold the row labels in pivot table, but we can apply the powerful function – Conditional Formatting to solve this problem. Please do as follows:
1. Select the bold font row you want to un-bold in the pivot table, or you can press Ctrl key to select multiple bold font rows as your need. See screenshot:
2. Then click Home > Conditional Formatting > New Rule, see screenshot:
3. In the New Formatting Rule dialog box:
- (1.) Click Use a formula to determine which cells to format option under Select a Rule Type section;
- (2.) Then enter this formula =$A$3="Row Labels" into the Format values where this formula is true field, see screenshot:
Note: In the above formula, A3 indicates the first cell reference of bold font rows in your pivot table, and the Row Labels is the cell content of your cell A3. You can change them to your need.
4. Then click Format button, and in the popped out Format Cells dialog, click Font tab, and then choose Regular from the Font style, see screenshot:
5. And then click OK > OK to close the dialogs, and now, you can see your selected bold font rows have been showed as un-bold font, see screenshot:
