In my excel pivot table the user can display multiple items from a drop down paramater from a report filter. I want to display in cells what the user selected. How, would i do that?

    If you are selecting via drop down boxes, you might want to check out data slices.  This remains viewable, though not as flexable as the drop downs.

    So, take your chart and just insert a slicer.  Should be on the pivot table options ribbon.
