I am using Access 2007. I have a database for my Products/Services industry.
I have a table containing my products/services, as well as a Work Order Form
that is linked to the Products/services table from which I can choose via
drop down the products that I am selling to that customer. The
Product/services table contains 3 fields; Product, Cost & Price. The Work
Order Form also contains those three fields, and when I choose a product from
the drop down, the corresponding Price field fills in as well. Now, sometimes

Hi - I have got to learn fast how to make pivot tables
from a database in Excel 2003. I know how to set up the
database, however I just don't seem to grasp the logic or
procedure to set up the table. Is there somewhere on the
web that I can go do get almost a step by step
explanations and examples to make them clearer? Thank You
There are instructions and links for pivot tables on Jon Peltier's site:

Create a PDF. Can't guarantee it will be really small, but it should be smaller
than a Publisher file. There are free PDF conversion applications around.
www.primopdf.com is mentioned here.
If you have Publisher 2007 there is an Office PDF add-in.

I do get some odd requests for great plains. My latest requires me to track
down a table.
The one i need is for one of the forms that shows in the smart list. I need
the one under account transactions and is called Output VAT Nominal. I need
to know what table/s supply this form.
Even better would be if it was possible to access the hard coding of this
form. I looked for it and found nothing.

Yes, you can use mutliple sheets connected to single pivot.
choose, Multiple consolidation ranges option in Pivot table and Pivot
Chart Wizard - step 1 of 3.
It is better to get the all data into single sheet and use pivot.

I am trying to find out how to use excel as a estimating or pricing program.
Does anyone know how to do this?
I can send you a simple (fake) sample worksheet of pricing out the cost of
manufacturing and shipping a washing machine. It may help you to get
going. It uses drop down lists and VLOOKUP formulas to estimate the price
of different options and shipping prices based on different zones.

I have an Access 2007 database that has a lot of linked tables and I
want to 'batch' rename them. For example, they all start with "dbo_"

I have the following data in a chart
Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Is it possible to have the data table show a totals row?
Totals 4 9 12 13 10 10 13 12
Thanks in advance,
You can't include the total in the data table. As a workaround, you
could embed the chart on a worksheet, and display the data below it.

I have a database the has a Parts Table and a Vendors Table. what needs to
happen is i need a form that will allow someon to view all the information
about that parts itself and the vendors that supply the part but every
part is available by all 5 vendors for different cost, and i need to
construct tables that when part information is undated or deleted it will
reflect across the board and on the form itself be able to see the vendor
name and the part information for that vendor.
what type of relationships will be involved here
Answered in tablesdbdesign.
In Excel 2000, must data tables (Data\Tables...) always be located on the
same worksheet tab as the source data? I want to put summary tables into a
separate worksheet (tab), but Excel won't let me do that.
Looks that way, at least in Excel97 (my ver)
But we could always mirror the data tables (or parts thereof)
elsewhere (eg: another sheet) via simple link formulas

I am writing a report in portait and want to place a table that is in

See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/LandscapeSection.htm. Although the
stated purpose of this article is to explain how to put a portrait page
number (or header/footer) on a landscape page, it does start by explaining
how to create the required landscape section for your table.

...Data Modeling:Lookup table and Main table:establishing relationshi
I am working on creating data model from existing database using MS

Existing database is w/o PK-FKs & I am working to create relational DB

I have a lookup table which contains language codes,used by main

So, I am wondering how can I enforce PK-FK relationship here.

...Pivot Table Source Data
I have an existing Pivot Table that usually updates daily, albeit this
relies someone in the office refreshing the data. Anyway we seem to
have missed one days data and thought we would be clever and just
include the days missing data back into the source data. In effect we
are putting the 8th September data between the 7th and the 9th. However
no matter what we do the data from the 8th ends up as the last column
in the pivot table. Are we missing something really simple here or has
my brain turned to mush?
thanks for the help in advance.

after I close the form, the info I typed (invoice update) is there, but the

I am using Excel 2007. I have a spreadsheet that the figures can be
negative or positve. I have formatted the cells with this custom
format $#,##0;[Red]$-#,##0. On the spreadsheet the format works fine.
I created a chart from the data. I have a data table at the bottom of
the chart. The problem is that the format from the spreadsheet is not
reflected in the data table. When I click on Format Data Table, there
is no option for number formatting. There is a number formatting
option available when i click Format Axis, but this doesn't change it,
because the actual axis is Text.
