Hi Folks,

I am currently working on pivot tables and charts. I have charts on one sheet and when I copy a pivot table and paste it onto the charts sheets the charts expand. How can I prevent the charts from expanding when I copy the pivot table or for that matter any text.
The expansion is because in the table the test is vertical and the cell becomes big.The paste process is done by copy> paste special> column widths> OK > paste.

Thanking you for your expertise and help. New job new tasks and new learning.

AFD.

Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Select your Chart Area and go to the Format ribbon. This will open a side pane called "Format Chart Area". Click on the rightmost icon under Chart Options (square in shape), then expand the Properties section. You probably need the option "Move but don't size with cells", but feel free to experiment!
