Well, I’m going to write this particular blog post at the risk of looking incredibly silly, however it may help someone…
I’m in the process of creating some internal reports using Excel 2010 Beta on top of an Analysis Services back end. This requires the creation of a number of Pivot Tables, and some super slinky Slicers, and the report is looking really nice.
One small glitch in the process is that whenever I change Slicer values, the Pivot Table columns automatically resize, leaving me with a number of cells with the inevitable “###” values. This requires me to auto expand the column to see the values again. Not an ideal solution to present to my Financial Director J
To overcome this small issue, simply go to the Pivot Table options, and unselect the “Autofit column widths on update” check box. Set the column widths to what you need, and you’re in the game.
