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.

ledger form and binding vs queries
I've designed a "ledger" form that generally acts like a datasheet form, but uses text boxes, comboboxes, and a lot of code to act in a much prettier way. I first attempted to link the form to appropriate records (from 1 table) by setting the form's recordsource at runtime to a query string and then using event driven procedures to create new records, update records, and delete records (represented by line items in the ledger) in the form's recordset (the controls in my ledger remaining unbound, only the form is bound). This was leading to problems I wasn't sure how...

Using only forms, Not queries
HI, How can we restrict users to enter/view data only through forms and Never queries? When a form uses a query to access the table, we need to give the rights to read, insert and update anycase.

Including Null values in query design
I am using a form to enter the parameters for a report. The parameters are drawn from a number of combo boxes on the form. The report is based on a query.

This works fine as long as the fields that are being queried have no null values - if they do, then in the situation where I want the "*" to apply, the query only returns the records which have a value.

Self linking tabel in editabel query
Hi I have a StaffBookings table with Date, Time, StaffID and ClientID columns which I use to enter information via a bound form. Now I also need to have a column that shows the count of jobs that the staff has done. My solution would be to do a count query on StaffBookings table and link it to the StaffBookings table itself. Problem is that such a query makes the form un-editable as far as I understand. How can I get round that; that form bound to StaffBookings table is editable but also has the count?
