The formula below works. It gets the VAT value from the pivot table for TP =

 Is there a way that I can reference the TP outside the formula - something
 GETPIVOTDATA($B$5,"TP[' & A1 & ']  VAT") so that I can choose which TP  to
see by changing the value in A1.

Add some quotation marks, and it should work:

   =GETPIVOTDATA($B$8,"TP " & A1 & " VAT")

It should work without the square brackets and single quotes around the

Thanks Debra for your prompt reply. What works in the end is

=GETPIVOTDATA($B$8,"TP['" & A1 & "'] VAT") so that the result reads


The '1' must end up in single quotation marks and in square brackets. It
took a while to works that one out. In this case the '1' is the name of an
actual item in the pivot table, but according to the help file one can use
it to reference the 1st, 2nd etc  items. The syntax remains the same.

Thanks for taking the time to read my question. I want to filter this query by the values in my single column list box. I made this function to create the string, but the query doesn't like it.

Hello. I have a connection with a Access 2007 db back end (tables only) using OLEDB. The db is on a shared drive on the network. So a UNC is used.

Using Lookup Query with Calculated Value in Table ComboBox
Hello all, This question takes a complicated setup, but I'll try to keep it brief. I have a database with a main table (tblMain) and a lookup table (tblLookup). tblMain has an integer field (LookupMe) that is related to the ID field in tblLookup. I set up LookupMe to use a ComboBox input display control that uses a query as its source. The query contains two columns: tblLookup.ID and a calculated value, say "[First Name] & " " & [Last Name]". Back in tblMain, the LookupMe field has the following properties: Bound Column: 1 Column Count: 2...

querying a view
I've got 2 taables containing a couple of years worth of data and have created a view which joins them and does a couple of calculations. If I run a query against that view to select only the last weeks data, does SQL Server haave to joint the whole contents of each table before the where clause on the query is used? Thanks No. The query optimizer will attempt to optimize the query as a whole. That is, for example, if your view is Select <column list> From Table1 Inner Join Table2 On <condition>; and you do Select <column list> From <Your...

web query autoformats numbers
Hi I'm fetching data from a server (the URL of which I've excised for security reasons) using a web query as below. The problem is, sometimes the data is something like so: 8264E01 This is supposed to be interpreted as text. I can't seem to find a combination of settings that causes it to leave that as text. It always seems to convert that to a number and display it as 8.264E4. Is there any way to force this to leave it as text? I've tried: - locking the formatting but leaving the page editable (the query refuses to run) - formatting the destination as text - various s...

Queries calculation
I have a table called “openbills”. I have a query called “billsopenvalue” In the table I have a field where I insert the amount a customer paid – this can be as well a part payment of the bill. The query calculates how much is still pending to pay. Now the problem: Ie: the total to be paid amount is 1000. The customer paid 100. = Result of query 900 Now the customer paid another 100 – normally the result of the query should be 800; but it is again 900 because the resting value is calculated: total to be paid – paid amount = resting amount. How can I fix after each calculation the restin...

What should i do? I am thinking of few solutions. Fix 1. Make a temp table and apply condition to largest table. Doing so, the temp table will have only 100 records or less and then join Fix 2.

(By the way, the fomula points to the correct full path of the starting cell of the pivot table, and the formula works correctly when the pivot table file is open.)

Complex Query not working on report
I recently started using 07 on a fe/be db created in 03. The query below worked fine in 03 but now gives me the "enter parameter value" box asking for "tblRECORDS.CREATE" when I open a report based on it with 07. The query still opens and displays fine, but the report seems to hangup. Is it a timing issue? I know the query is kind of busy, but it is based on a table where the data is stored as 1s or 0's to make big queries calculate faster.
