Pivot Table

Post by stevmg » Sat Apr 08, 2017 10:41 am

How does one change the labels on a pivot table?

How does one link data from a pivot table to a chart?

How does one change the labels on a pivot table?

What exactly are you trying to do?

Are you trying to rename labels?
We don't support this feature yet.

Example:

Family names (field name)
Maier (label 1)
Meier (label 2)
Mayer (label 3)

All three labels should be changed to Meier.

Currently, you have to change the source data.
In future, a label name might have a custom name too.

Changing the field name, can be done using the sidebar drop down button.
Field Settings dialog, Field page, custom name.

How does one link data from a pivot table to a chart?

Currently we don't support pivot charts. It's on our list for future versions.

Good on you.

I am an instructor in a local university. Will later versions of Softmaker accommodate this?

Also, are instructors afforded Softmaker office gratis? It is a very useful program and less tedious that Excel.
