Delete a Pivot table

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:


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

Select Entire PivotTable


Click Analyze > Select, and then pick Entire PivotTable.


Press Delete.
