I assume that's supposed to be "drag" - but that doesn't get my buttons back - it just puts the field in that stupid pivotchart filter pane.
For instance it used to be if I had a field "Supplier" and I had it as a report filter, it would appear on the top left of my chart as a grey button with "Supplier" on it that I could click to filter and the filter logo visible to the right when it was active - this button would print with the chart.
Yes, that was "drag" I editted. Not enough coffee yet here.
I'm sorry, I just re-read your post. You said pivot "Chart".
Unfortunately, I think the answer is you need to learn how to live with it this way because the functionality is not in Excel 2007. It bothered me initially for a day or three. I've learned to accept it.
