I want 2 slicers from 1 pivot table that are NOT linked!

Hi,
I've seen lots of examples of people wanting to link 1 slicer to two pivot tables, or to have 1 slicer that controls multiple pivots across multiple worksheets.
However, I want to know if it's possible to do the opposite. I have one pivot table and want to produce two separate waterfall charts out of that data.  In the sheet I currently have, when I change the slicer selections in one worksheet it automatically changes the slicer (and therefore the chart) in the other worksheet, when I want them to be independent.
Is it possible to have independent slicers that both source data from the same pivot table?

Thanks.

Hello,

you will need two different pivot tables for that. They can still use the same pivot cache. The easiest way might be to copy the existing pivot table and paste it. Then configure each slicer to connect only to one pivot table. Now you can have two different charts with different slicer filtering.
