Description Lutz 2014-08-29 16:44:48 UTC
When creating a pivot table I do a lot of charts. Every time the table gets refreshed and the rows/columns change, the charts get messed up.

It would be really nice, if a chart could be automatically generated instead of the table. Functionality would be similar to the table generatiopn but data is displayed in a bar, line or XY chart.

I'm surprised that I can not find duplicate for request for Pivotchart

MS Office feature>

Please note that enhancements are largely tackled by volunteers. The NEW status confirms that this is a valid enhancement but does not guarantee that the feature will be implemented in the near future (or at all in fact). If a volunteer finds this to be interesting, they'll assign it to themselves and try to implement it.

That being said - this is a pretty awesome request :)
