When I go to Pilotable Tools-Design-PivotTable Styles & hover, nothing shows up for name title.  Is something turned off that I can't find?  Reference Lesson 5-11 Expert.

Hi Scouter,


I've taken a look and there is a setting that can disable the pop-up 'screen tips' that you're talking about. Here's how to enable them again:

  1. Click the File tab on the ribbon.
  2. Click Options from the left-hand menu bar.

    The Excel Options dialog appears.
  3. Click General on the left of the dialog (if it isn't selected already).
  4. Click the ScreenTip style drop-down menu and make sure that Show feature descriptions in ScreenTips is selected.

  5. Click the OK button.

After enabling this setting, you should find that the names appear correctly.


I hope this solves the problem, but please feel free to reply if you're still unable to see the names.
