When I copy a pivot chart created from data in a pivot table, I can paste it in the same worksheet or another worksheet and it appears to retain its connection to the source data. When the source data changes, both charts update after a refresh. However, when I copy a pivot chart and paste it to another workbook, it converts it to a standard chart and the link to the original pivot table source data is broken. Is there a way to copy a pivot chart to another workbook and retain the link to the pivot table source?

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

Maybe via this trick?
Copy/Paste in same workbook on new sheet. Then move this new sheet to new/other workbook.
