When we create a Pivot chart using Pivot Wizard it creats a OLAP query which contains the path for the table data. If we move the table data into some other place then the pivot chart is not get opened. Then I have manually change the path to get the chart. Is there any solution to automate the path changes or to inform the user about the changes in the location of the table data.

Re: Excel Pivot view
Highlight the entire pivot table and name it as a range. Then in the formula, replace the reference to the table addresses with the range name. Then wherever you move the table (move, not cut and paste) it will automatically gather the right data. Thanks for rating FixYa!

To parse a Text field that contains two words separated by a comma, follow
Open any existing database.
Create a table with the following structure:
Table: Parse2Words ------------------ Field Name: Empl Data Type: Text
View the Parse2Words table in Datasheet view and type the following
three records in the Empl field:
Create the following query based on the Parse2Words table:
Query: QueryTest ------------------------------------------------------------------ Field: FirstName: Right$([Empl],Len([Empl])- InStr(1,[Empl],",")-1) Show: True Field: LastName: Left$([Empl],InStr(1,[Empl],",")-1) Show: True
NOTE: You can modify the QueryTest query to account for spaces between
the two parts in the Empl field. For example, if the text in the Empl
field is "Smith,John" without spaces, remove the -1 from the FirstName
Run the query. Note that the QueryTest query separates the text in the Empl field into the two fields below:
FirstName LastName -------------------- John Smith Laura Callahan Andrew Fuller
My suggestion is to use a Pivot Table. Follow these instructions:
Click on column A1 - then in the menu bar click DATA > Pivot Table and Pivot Chart Report.
Click NEXT on step 1 of pivot table wizard.
For step two you will want to highlight all of the data on your sheet. then click next.
Choose NEW WORKSHEET for step 3 of the pivot table wizard and click finish.
Once the Pivot Table sheet opens, drag the STATUS field into the top left corner of the pivot table view, where "drop column fields" and "drop row fields" meet. Next drop another instance of the STATUS field into the "drop row fields here" column. And lastly drop the OWNER field into the "drop column fields here" section. You should now be viewing a report showing you exactly what you were looking for.
For forms, open a data table in view mode, while there locate the forms setup wizard. For your first try just answer the questions the best you can for the wizard. When there are no more questions to answer wizard will create a form for you. From what you learn doing that you may get enough hints to make a form from scratch. Just keep in mind you always build a form from the fields in a table.
Now for the Query, start out the same way and use the wizard. Query to most folks means ask a question and get an answer. In access query is a way to present sub sets of data or ways to modify data in the fields of your tables.
You need to create subtotals so that it looks like something like this:
Prod/units Amt. Level Total
xxxx 10.00 1 yyyy 20.00 1 30.00
dddd 40.00 2 ffff 30.00 2 70.00
To do this I would suggest using the Pivot Table feature of Excel. It is not too hard to use but you do have to know what you want and also have to be sure you are getting results as expected. Like any tool, it has to be used right. You can also use sub-total functions supplied in VBA as well in your cells.
If you want to avoid using VBA functions in cell and deal with ranges, etc., use the Pivot Table Wizard.

Check the source data that it is using to create your chart (right-click choose SOURCE DATA). The result you're getting sounds as if it may not include all the data you want to chart. Generally should include at least two rows AND at least two columns.
