ChartData SetRange on a Pivot Table

Hello, I am having some trouble with updating a chart with a newly updated pivot table. I can get the pivot table to update properly, but I am having trouble using ChartData.SetRange on the pivot table. If I SetRange to just the data in the pivot table, then my series labels and horizontal axis are not properly defined. Is there any way to do something like ChartData.SetRange(“Sheet1!Main Table”)?


I have observed your requirements and request you to please provide the source presentation, generated presentation, desired output presentation and working sample project reproducing the issue on your end. Please share the requested information so that I may proceed further to help you out.

I have tried to chop it down into something manageable, please let me know if there needs to be further clarification.

pivotNoRefresh - initial file, without an updated pivottable
afterPivotRefreshAndSetRange - after aspose pivot table refreshing and chartdata.setrange
desiredOutput - what afterPivotRefreshAndSetRange should look like. This is how the file looks after opening the excel data for the chart and the chart refreshing in powerpoint and excel

Sorry about that. I have created a sample visual studio project and it should be working now. Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide.

Great! Thank you for your help.

Hello. Our company is are currently evaluating Aspose Slides and have run into what seems to be the same issue with updating a pivot table chart/labels. It seems the labels are not correctly updated when we refresh the charts. Is there any suggested workaround or do we need to go in and refresh these labels manually?

I like to suggest you to please try using latest Aspose.Slides for .NET 18.11 on your end and following sample code for setting range.

string range = “Chart!A2:C3”;
