    I found this tip very useful. Thanks! Is there a way to also retrieve the selected field names from the Column Labels section and Row Labels section of the Field List to also embed in a chart title like this?

    Hi there,

    Sure, why not? You can reference any cell in the PivotTable using a formula. Chances are pretty good that the default will come up as a GETPIVOTDATA function, which could be what you what (they will dynamically reference cells even when they move), or you can fall back to A1 style referencing as well. Use that formula in a cell and then link it to the chart title.
