  1. Thanks for sharing this great tip.

    I do not believe that you can apply this method to a table calculation sort on a map with pie charts can you?

    I have been unable to come up with a way to sort my pie charts on a map with each pie chart sorted in descending order from largest to smallest slice.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.


  2. Great tip !! Now I have to find a tip for making a table calculation on the filter shelf, filter across multiple worksheets.
