Importing Data into an Excel Pivot Table via Access
I have set up a query in Microsoft Access which is linked to our AS400
server. I have created pararmeters within Access which asks for certain
fields which works. I then go into Excel and create a pivot table with the
external data source that I have created in access. When I go to enter a
pararmeter within Microsof Query I get a reply saying that "Parameters can
not be used with this Query", what I want to do is setup a parameter on the
Excel spreadsheet which then goes and gets the data i require from this
parameter. I would be very grateful if someone could help me with thi...VBA from another app: Suppressing Excel confirmation dialog?
After creating/formatting several worksheets from MS Access, I'd like to delete
the "Sheetn" worksheets that got put there when I did a .WorkBooks.Add.
I avoided using them because I'm not sure how/why they are created - i.e. maybe
some user's defaults would only create 1 empty sheet or none.
So, form MS Access's VBA I'd like to do:

You don't say which version of Excel you're using. 2002 and 2003 can repair
damaged workbooks in some situations. Try File - Open, and look for a
drop-down in the "Open" button. If you have it, try "Open and repair." Try

After installing the 1.3R release I reported this defect. The support team
responded that this change was by design. They claimed that the change was
made to work around a defect - "we had a bug with inter-store inventory

This type of quick and easy fix (crippling the UI to work around a defect)
is just plain wrong for at least a couple of reasons.

No, not really. You could open up both instances, Powerpoint and Publisher,
and then drag and drop/copy and paste from the Publisher window to the
Powerpoint window, the reformat as needed.
