Timer for Queries?
Does anyone know of a macro or add-on that I could use as a simple timer for
queries? I don't like to use the CPU time in the Task Manager because of
it's inaccuracy when not receiving full CPU usage.
THanks for any suggestions
Exactly what are you trying to accomplish? Are you trying to cause a query
to run automatically every so often? If so, you will need to use the timer
event on a form to do that.

I am not too familiar with either of these products. Can
someone tell me if an SQL database can be viewed and

You can use the Access Table linking feature to view tables from SQL server
via ODBC. If you have a unique index on the table in SQL Server, then you
can manipulate the data.

Is there a way to

for example if you append a bunch of data into a table could you then do
some kind of an update query to say if there is an initial event and no

would be Customer A and the total amt .. the event, renewal event and the

I've been playing around with protecting my pivot table - so far, I can't get

or manipulate the row and column dimensions.
Is this possible?
You could use programming to restrict the pivot table use. For example:
