I have a chart in the attached spreadsheet on the "Daily Load" worksheet. How can I show the x-axis values as "Fri 01/25/13", "Tues 01/29/13", "Wed 01/30/13", etc. instead of "1/25/2013", "1/29/2013", "1/30/2013", etc.

Any input is appreciated!

Hi MV, the formatting is unable to be updated because you have some blanks in the target field date. If you can remove the blanks, recreate your pivot table and/or chart, you will be able to set the format this way:

-right mouse click on the target date drop down arrow on the pivot chart
-select Field Settings
-At the bottom left of the dialog box is a Number Format button
-Select your date format here and all will be well

If you do not see the number format button, it is because there are still blanks in the field

Let me know how that works
