Query question on joining information from two tables
Given two tables:
In table Foo:
foo_id foo_desc manchu_id
1 apples 1
2 pears 1
3 apples 2
In table Manchu:
How would I join these two tables in a query to get a result that
looks like this:
1 apples ripe
2 pears ripe
3 apples spoiled
This is a basic inner join on the manchu_id column:
SELECT F.foo_id, F.foo_desc, M.man...Append a framed table
I have a table with a frame all around it.
How do I append a row quickly?
My only solution so far is:
1. mark the last row of the table
2. insert row (shift cells down)
3. copy content from last row to the empty row
4. insert data in the last row
Is there another way?
AFAIK that's the only way to do it. I often
wish MS had an "append" in addition to "insert".

is there a way to preserve border outlines in a pivot table after you refresh?
Right-click a cell in the pivot table, and choose Table Options
Ensure that Preserve Formatting is turned on, and AutoFormat is turned
off, then click OK
To format cells, enable selection should be turned on.
To enable selection --
From the Pivot toolbar, choose PivotTable>Select
If it's not already activated, click on Enable Selection
To format a section of a pivot table, e.g. subtotals --

Consider a grid with 20 spaces, Space A, Space B etc. In each space Iwant to list a persons name and a date. I would like the data entry tobe on a form graphically.Do I set up one table with fields SpaceA-Name, SpaceA-Date, SpaceB-Name, SpaceB-Date etc.? This would certainly make it easier indesigning the form and making sure the data goes to the right field,but it's probably poor table design. Or do I use separate tables? Andthen how do I set up the form with the proper record sources?My brain hurts.Thanks,Dave B On Mar 9, 7:56 am, "Dave" <Dave.Bea...@lhsc.on.ca> wrote:>...Search a Table, find, and copy all data from the row

Sorry but I have gone through all help programs and cannot find how to make
a pivot table with multiple worksheets.Any help would be great.
You can create a Pivot Table from multiple consolidation ranges, but you
won't get the same pivot table layout that you'd get from a single
range. There's an example here:
If possible, store your data on a single worksheet, or in a database,
and base the pivot table on that. You'll have more flexibility in
creating the pivot table

Can anybody share the pros and cons of each?
I think you have missed the point. The article says that the table
produced by the ATP histogram tool is exactly the same as the table
(with same bin definitions) produced by the FREQUENCY function. The
difference is not in the values calculated, but in the fact that the

Each month the data table that the pivot is based on has another

Oct-06 will be added.
The problem is that in the above pivot I have manually gone into the

'Sep-06', so next month when October is added to the data the above
pivot will be unchanged i.e Oct-06 won't appear...No Group dialog box appear when working in Pivot Table

I was speaking w/ a Dell tech rep yesterday about my new laptop (Windows 7

You can't unless you merged the cells at one time and want to re-split them. You
