How to show or hide field buttons in pivot chart in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-07

When creating a Pivot Chart in Excel, the Report Filter field buttons, Legend field buttons, Axis Field buttons, and Value Field buttons are added into the Pivot Chart automatically as below screen shot shown. As these buttons take space and make the global layout messy, some users may want to hide them. This article will show you the way to show or hide field buttons in a Pivot Chart in Excel easily.

Hello, Useful info. Thanks....But throughout this page 'Field" is misspelled as "Filed". I just thought you should know. https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/2712-excel-pivot-chart-hide-show-filed-buttons.html
