Hi there,

I have created a sheet with pivot charts that I want to be locked in place, but have their filter controls remain useable. When I protect the sheet though and check 'Use PivotTable & PivotChart', the pivot chart controls are locked.

Can someone help?

When you protect the sheet you must check the box: "Use PivotTable & Pivot Chart"

As I said, I did that but it didn't work. That's the problem. Does it work for you?
