    Locking the format on a Pivot Chart (XP)

    I have produced a pivot chart and changed the default colors for each series to get the look that I want - but as soon as I refresh the data the default colors come back.

    Is there anyway to stop this happening?

    Re: Locking the format on a Pivot Chart (XP)

    This is a known bug/feature (pick your choice), see MSKB article XL2000: Changing a PivotChart Removes Series Formatting. The only workaround is to create a macro that refreshes the pivot table, then formats the chart again. You'll find a simple example in <post#=445508>post 445508</post#>.
