To create a pivot chart, you can do as the following steps:

4. Now drag the fields you want to show in the PivotChart to the areas as you need. Here I drag Saler and Order ID fields to Axis Fields (Categories) section, and drag Amount field to Values section. See screenshots:

Note: When you create a pivot chart, a pivot table is created at the same time.

Tip:

If you want the legend series shown as Saler, you can drag Saler field to the Legend Fields (Series) section. See screenshots:

You can filter the Order ID or Saler by clicking the down arrow in PivotChart, specify the filter criteria in the drop down list, and then click OK.

Notes:

(1) The pivot table will change as the pivot chart changes.

(2) In Excel 2007, we cannot filter data in the Pivot chart, but we can filter data in the Pivot table and the data in the pivot chart will change automatically.
