All the data for the values for one axis for a series on a chart must 
be on a single worksheet.  So, all the x-values for a series must be on 
a worksheet, just as all the y-values must be on a single worksheet.  
Other than that, there are no restrictions as to the source worksheet.  
So, a series could have x-values from Sheet1, and the y-values from 
Sheet2.  In addition, another series on the same chart could have data 
from Sheet3 (x-values) and Sheet4 (y-values).

Of course, the chart title could come from yet another sheet, etc.

Scale tab missing on chart format button. Urgent!

when form created
I have a form which was created by someone else (not a form template) which is like a questionnaire with empty boxes to be completed.

I suspect this is set up as a table with auto resizing enabled. Displaying table gridlines (Table | Show Gridlines) will help you see what you're dealing with.

HELP! Need Access DB to show realtime changes in different location
Hi Guys, I was wondering about how access refreshes it's data within forms and it seems that it doesn't. If i have a form open in one location on a network and update fields on the form the changes are not shown on the form opened in another location. (I.e. if 2 users are in the same form at the same time and one adds a new record the other users form will not show this change). Is there anyway that Access can be setup to show real-time changes over multiple locations? Preferably without having to do a manual refresh by clicking a button or something.

excel should make it easier to have a 1 to 1 plot area in chart
Sometimes I would like the plot area to have a 1 to 1 ratio, so each little square of the gridlines are a square. ie, the y- axis could be 10, the x- axis could be 10, so the plot area would be square, or the y- axis could go from -10 to 10, with the same x- axis, so the plot area would have twice the y- axis than the x- axis.

I don't mean to put anyone off. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most ...

Multiple tables output to multiple sheets in single excel workbook
Hi all, Been a while since I've done any access dev, and I can't for the life of me remember how to do this. I have 3 tables I need to export to Excel, preferably in one workbook as separate sheets. Using OutputTo simply overwrite the file, and I seem to recall using transfertext to accomplish this, but it says the file is read-only after the first table is output. Do I need to create an export spec? If so, how do I go about this? Or is this simply not going to happen without using the Office library reference and all that jazz?
