    Sort a pivot chart (2003 SP2)

    I've been given a spreadsheet with a pivot chart. OK so far, but the powers that be require the chart to be in Pareto format i.e. sorted with the greatest values on the left.

    As I have virtually no experience with pivot tables or charts, this really has got me stumped.

    Help!

    The pivot chart is based on a pivot table. Click in the data field of the pivot table, then sort descending using the button on the toolbar. The pivot chart will be sorted the same way automatically.

    I am not sure how different all the XL versions are but it can be done something like:
    Right click on the pivot table
    field
    [advanced]
    In autosort options
    Click on "Descending"
    And choose from the list the field you should sort by.
    [OK][OK]
