Cannot repeat table name

I created a report based on a query.
After fooling with the design, I started getting
"Cannot repeat table name "Loan List" in FROM clause".

I cannot find any reference to my table "Loan List" in Design View.

How can I see the FROM clause that's complaining?

This is probably (not necessarily) referring to what you have entered 
for the Record Source property of the report.  Have a look at that for a

You're right.  Thanks, Steve.

I stumbled on the report's SQL for the field I wanted.

My report is based on a query.  I got a SELECT into the Record Source that 
wanted to lift a field from the table Loan List, but the field was not in the 

I did that by dragging the field name "[Loan List].[Percent]" from the Field 
List window to the Report Header.  When I tried to do that, Access said
"To complete this operation, Access must modify the RecordSource property of 
the current form or report.  Access will create a new query and embed it 
directly into the report's RecordSource property.  The report will no longer 
be based on the 'ABC' query."

Fine with me, but then the field I chose bore the complaint "Invalid Control 
Property: Control Source.  No Such Field in the Field List."

This seems odd, since I dragged the field name from the "Add Existing 
Fields" list.

Anyhow, I put the field [Loan List].[Percent] in the underlying query, and I 
can get the Percent value to show up in the report's header.  It's inelegant 
in so far as I have to put the Percent in each record of the query, so that I 
can get it to show up once in the report's header, but I don't mind!

automating a pivot table
When using a pivot table, is there any way of automatically selecting from a drop down menu. By this I mean if I can select one of 5 colours, If I put "red" in cell A1, can the pivot table be made to take the value in cell A1 as the colour selection, rather than me selecting red from the drop down list. thanks in advance You can add fields to the page area.

Pulling specific data from table field
I am having a problem figuring the right way to pull specific data from within the text of the table's field and separating it into a unique field alone. Anyway, my problem is that I need to copy a user's first name out of a field that contains system user information, and then pull the last name out separately as well, both uniquely. I don't mind having separate queries to do this (although one would be preferred of course).

Best approach? Native Excel pivot for a SQL table
We've researched how to have an Excel pivot table use as its source a table generated by a SQL-based program. There are a number of ways mentioned in the Excel documentation. At least one seem complicated to even test--like having to create a data definition. We're happy to do the work but are unclear which method is best, and whether one or more methods is risky. We first probably will have to create the pivot table using a sample table with the right field names, and then ideally will point it somehow at the real table, which will be on a different system and at a different path....
