Altering Pivot Chart Filters on a Protected Sheet

Occasional Visitor



I need some help with this situation: I have a worksheet with many pivot tables, linked to a power pivot database. This worksheet is hidden.

I have a second worksheet, where I created some pivot charts (linked to the pivot tables from the hidden worksheet). The result was a very interesting dashboard from the visual perspective.

Now I need to protect this worksheet with the pivot charts, to prevent the users to move or delete the charts. What happens is: the filters on the pivot charts stop working. I know it is possible to make filters on a pivot table to keep working on a protected sheet (by selecting the "Use Pivot Tables & Pivot Charts" option when protecting), but it seems that it doesn´t work on pivot charts.

Anyone have any idea to make it work?
