Description Steve Fanning 2020-05-08 20:05:23 UTC
I have noticed a couple of minor user interface changes in the area of Pivot Tables and the help files need to catch up at some point. These changes include:
(1) On the Pivot Table Layout dialog, "Page Fields" are now called "Filters".
(2) In the Pivot Table's right-click context menu the "Edit Layout" button is now called "Properties".

When updating the help, bear in mind that the associated icon in the Standard toolbar has been renamed from "Insert Pivot Table" to "Insert and Edit Pivot Table". I have not seen this icon referenced in the help but have not yet carried out an exhaustive check.

While reviewing the help material to address the changes above, also note that the Data menu option to create a Pivot Table has changed to "Data > Pivot Table > Insert or Edit".

Moving to NEW

The terminology has been fixed in the help documents for v7.6.

The page "Editing Pivot Tables" says "in the context menu you find the command Properties, which displays the Pivot Table Layout dialog for the current pivot table."

The page "Creating Pivot Tables" uses the term "Filters" instead of "Page Fields."
