Display No Data in Pivot

I am using Excell 2007, and I have create a pivot table, and I have a number 
of reps that I want to display in my pivot and their sales amounts.  In my 
data table, I have created "dummy" rows with the reps names, but sales $ are 
blank because they haven't sold anything.  I want their name to show up in my 
pivot table as blanks.  Right now only names with sales show up.

I see under PivtoTable Options, under the Display tab ther is a box to click 
to "Show Itmes with no Data on Rows", but it is greyed out.

Any idea how to un-grey out this option?

Those settings are for OLAP based pivot tables only.
If your pivot table is based on Excel data, right-click on a name in the 
Sales Rep field
Click Field Settings
On the Layout & Print tab, add a check mark to Show Items With No Data
Click OK

Trying to update data in RMS with a web interface
My project is much more complicated, but I am hoping someone can give me some generic tips and/or code to assist me. I want to update a field in RMS with some data the cashier inputs on an HTML form.

Summing Data Series
I have just created a chart, but rather than show each data series individually, it has added them together. Hence the first data series shows the values from Column A of my Sheet correctly, but the second series shows the values from column A PLUS the valus from COlumn B, similarly the third series shows the sum of the values from Columns A, B and C. Why is Excel doing this? I am using Excel XP That is rather strange -- unless, of course, you are creating a stacked column chart, in which case the behavior is as expected. If not, how *exactly* did you create the chart? And, what do...

Consolidating & Labels
When consolidating a bunch of data and checking "Create Links to Sourc Data," everything works fine but it includes a + or minus icon on th left to click on to see all of the values summed (added rows). Now, my question is: Is it possible to have labels on the left of al of these 40 values or so being summed (only seen when consolidated cel is expanded) and have those labels appear directly to the left of thes values from the source files? This would then make it easy to create pivotTable. Thank you -- rhelle -----------------------------------------------------------------------...

I have an access form with a field that i need modified before it get entered into the database. If i enter 02-123456 into the form, i want to enter 123456 into the table. can someone help me out on how to do this?

How to select & display distinct values
Hello, I need help with a form please. My form has two controls, the first being a combo box. This box should select the company name from a lookup table. The lookup table has only two companies in it, however, they each are repeated several time. Company 1 has about 10 rows, company 2 has 3 rows. I used the query builder and came up with the statement: "SELECT DISTINCT Lktbl_Role_Master.CompanyName FROM Lktbl_Role_Master;" When I run the statement directly from query view, it executes perfectly and returns exactly two rows (one for each company, in a datasheet view) ho...

Printing JUST the Charts, not the data...
Hi, I'm using Excel 2000 and have a number of worksheets with which I've created some charts (all in the same workbook). Is there a way to print the charts that doesn't involve having to highlight each chart individually? I've got some charts in the same worksheet as their source data and some that are on their own page, but that doesn't seem to matter (unless I'm missing something). Any ideas? Thanks, Shane You could use a macro like the following. It prints out each chart sheet, and each embedded chart on each sheet, as if you'd selected each chart a...

Upsizing with picture data
I am attempting to upsize a database from Access 2003 to SQL Server 2005 Express. All tables, indexes, relations, etc. are correctly upsized, except one table refuses to cooperate. This table is an OLE object field, which contains picture data. If I remove this field, the table can be upsized. Apparently, the upsizing wizard is unable to make the transition. Is there a way around this dilema? create the table with out the old field then create a append query and add the field use the image data type. now you can append the missing data Hope this helps "wschlichtman" <wsc...

PK and FK Displayed
I am a complete Visio newbie, and cannot find the answer I need in books or online help. I am trying to create ER diagrams from scratch, and not connected to real tables, using VEA.

Formulas are displayed, results are not
Hello, For some reason, when I enter a formula into a cell and press enter, the formula just stays there. Anyone know what I can do to show the results? I tried pressing Cntrl + `, but that didn't work. FYI, when I cut and paste a column from a separate workbook, that column works like normal (i.e., the formulas produce results). Thanks for any suggestions! Hi Mike, Maybe your cell is preformatted as Text. Try formatting to general then erase your = and type it in again.

pivot table label adding "2" to the end of a label name
Hi, I have a pivot table and sometimes it adds a "2" to the end of a row lable ie. "joes pizza" is displayed as "joes pizza2". the sorce data certanly doesn't include the "2" and it seems like it is trying to tell me some thing ;). It might be hapening after i do a "replace command" in the source data (replace "sams pizza" with joes Pizza"). any one experienced this? Cheers, The only time I've seen this is when I had multiple headers with the same name. If I were you, I'd check once more--don't forget to c...

Stop displaying a line
I have a line graph/chart and it gets its values using a formula and the values of another column. However this poses a problem because if there is nothing in the targetted column the formula returns 0 cause the line to drop to the bottom, instead of casuing the line to just end until a value is added to the target column. How can I do this? Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example: =IF(A1="",NA(),A1) To hide the resulting #N/A errors on the worksheet, you can use conditional formatting. There are instructions here: http://www.contextures.com/xlC...

unattached textboxes disappear when a msgbox is displayed on a tab control
I'm using Access 2003. I have a form with a tab control on it. I was having problems with labels flashing and I followed the suggesting from Allen Browne - http://allenbrowne.com/ser-46.html. The flashing went away but now when a msgbox is displayed the unattached textboxes that I'm using as labels disappear. They come back as soon as the msgbox is removed from the screen. I've searched google looking for an answer but have come up short. Does anyone know why I'm experiencing this behavior and how to make it go away? Thanks, Rick That *is* strange. Have you tr...

A question about Console window(display or not display)
I've redirected the (stdin stdout stderr) of a console window process I spawned to a pipe. And I want to display the redirected console window, the question is: If I display it(set Create_new_CONSOLE in createprocess and some flags in startupinfo), I cannot use the redirected way of pipe, which means if i do not display, i can use the pipe communicating with the child process. Does it mean that as long as I disply the console window, windows will change stdin stdout to "screen&keyboard" instead of my pipe? That's right. If you redirect stdin or stdout then you preemp...
