How to delete a PivotTable or PivotChart report in Microsoft Excel 2010 on Windows XP
For all those who are into regular data analysis spreadsheets work the best. They are one of the most comprehensive tools that help you to standardize the data and present it with great clarity and precision. There are many features in Microsoft Excel 2010 that further help you work with the data. One such most commonly used feature is the PivotTable. It makes it very easy to deal with the most complex calculations by presenting the results in a separate table. While it is a great way to revisit your calculations and larger data, at times you may just want to share the larger data or the main spreadsheet. In this case you are required to delink your PivotTable.
