In the attached PivotChart, how can I format the x-axis such that the subheadings are not overlapping?

Bonus question: how to get rid of "blank"?

Still working on the overlapping, but I'll go for the bonus question. Go to Row 18. To the right of Row Labels is a filter tab. Click the tab, go down to (Blank) and uncheck it.

See if this is what you wanted. I right-clicked the chart and selected Show Field List. This brought up the Pivottable Field List. FSE was then unchecked.
