This is the first time this has happened to me. I am using Excel 2010. Before creating my pivot table and charts, I converted my source data into a table. From this table, I created by pivot table and charts.

I checked the Name Manger, Go To functions and I can't find it.
When I use Change Source Data, it identifies Table1, but no when I click on Table1, I get Reference is not valid.

The PTs still have drill-down capabilities when Ii select data from a pivot table. Interestingly, every time select data (a cell) to see the associate records, Excel copies the data to a new worksheet and labels the data, Table1.

Please help me find the underlying data/Table.

Thank you.

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Since the Pivot Cache can still exist with the source data, the Table or worksheet where the data was could have been deleted and the PivotTable still work just fine.

If that is the case, the source table can be restored by drilling down on a Grand Total after turning all filters off....
