Delete a PivotTable

When you no longer need a PivotTable, select the entire PivotTable, and press the Delete key to remove it.

If you get a "Cannot change this part of a PivotTable report" message, make sure the entire PivotTable is selected. Press Ctrl+A, and press Delete again.

If you're using a device that doesn't have a keyboard, try removing the PivotTable like this:

  1. Pick a cell anywhere in the PivotTable to show the PivotTable Tools on the ribbon.
    Select Entire PivotTable

  2. Click Analyze > Select, and then pick Entire PivotTable.

  3. Press Delete.

Tip:  If your PivotTable is on a separate sheet that has no other data you want to keep, deleting that sheet is a fast way to remove the PivotTable.
