This is how it's done:


Let me know if you have any problems.

I did quite a bit of testing with this.  And was unable to get this to work for my 2010 Excel.  

I'd like to recommend instead of trying to alter the chart, to alter the pivot table.  You can use a scroll bar to change a cell value just like in the above example, but then I'd recommend using something like


To change the vba filter on your pivot table.  When I was testing this on my system, it automatically updated my chart based on those changes.  

Best of luck,


I am still  having problems with this. Can you please help me with the attached chart.

Thank you
