In a previous post I showed you how to Insert a Pivot Chart.  Now we will take this concept once step further and insert a Slicer.  The cool thing about this is that the Slicer will control both the Pivot Table and the Pivot Chart.

See how you can start creating some awesome interactive analytical reports in just a couple of steps.
