How to avoid prefix of "Count" or "Sum" on generating charts from Pivot table


I am creating few charts (Pie) using the pivot tables and getting the prefix like "Count" and "Sum".

Unable to find a way to have column labels displayed without such prefixed in chart.

Please advise.

Hi @Ramesh PS ,

You can use the Table Transformer macro for this purpose. Wrap the Pivot Table macro in the Table Transformer macro, rename columns and build a chart based on the transformed table:


Use the the similar SQL query:

SELECT 'Column 1', 'Sum of Column 2' AS 'Column 2', 'Sum of Column 3' AS 'Column 3' FROM T*


The result is  the following:


Please let me know if you have any further questions.

any other alternative if Table Transformer Macro is not available?

The Table Transformer macro is included in the Table Filter and Charts app as well as the Pivot Table and Chart from table macros. This macro is available starting from version 5.0 of the app.

Unfortunately, there are no options to rename table columns except this macro.
