updating the data range for a pivot table

I am using pivot tables in a  sheet to summarize data, and I added 
few rows to the original table that the pivot tables are drawing from.
How can I update the data range that the tables pull from withou
having to redo all the pivot tables??

Thanks a lot!

Use a dynamic named range as the "master" table data source ; see here


for how.

Right click on the pivot table.
Select "Wizard".
Click "Back".
Modify the existing Data Source (if all you've done is add columns/rows,
Shift-Click the last used cell).
Click Finish

-or- use a dynamic range for your pivot table (as another response has

Help with using data
Hi I would really appreciate some help with extracting data from Outlook. I have been building up a database of clients/prospectives, these are in various categories. I would like to extract/search on various fields as well as my own categories, all i can do with export is extract the whole lot to a tab delimited file. Or export categories to an rge file which I can't use. Any ideas out there? thanks Outlook's Search doesn't suffice? There are 3rd party search applications that might help.

entering new data in a saved spreadsheet without losing formulas?
How do I do this? Hi Jackie, As long as you do not overwrite the formulas, then any new data will not affect the formula. I suspect though that there is more to this question. Are you concerned about writing new data into a cell that has a formula in it? The way to stop a cell's data being overwritten is to put protection onto it. This means taking protection off all the other cells otherwise you will not be able to write data to any cell. First select the whole worksheet concerned, then go to Format\Cells and select the protection tab and unselect the 'locked' tick box,...

Three different fields in one record referencing to three different records in another table
Hi. I have TableA and TableB TableA has 3 fields where types of file extensions (for different purpose) are supposed to be stored. Table B has many extension type strings for these TableA three fields (.tif, .jpg, .pdf, .gif, etc). 3 combo boxes refer to Table B to get and store TableB keys in TableA appropriated fields. When I set up table retaionship, Acces 'creates' also TableB_1 and TableB_2 and show a diagram where two other similar to tabelB tables show up. So long so good. I can create records in TableA having chosen, for each different file purpose, the respective extens...

Stock quote updates #2
Is there a way in Money 2003 Deluxe or any Money Deluxe (2004,2005) version to tell when the downloads for stock quotes ends? I have had this version for about a year now and I feel as though the stock quote downloads will expire. When the stock quote downloads stop in my $2003 version, I will upgrade to $2004 of $2005.

Custom class exists to add, update, delete and select nodes in record style XML file???

Purchasing Mix & Match Tables- what do you think???
Microsoft should add a Mix & Match table for purchasing. It would act the same way it would for the sale of an item only it would help calculate the Purchase Orders. Example: I buy cases of coke. I need 100 cases to reach a qty discount. A purchase order report would calculate the products needed to reach the level. This would be an priority trigger over the ROP. For example if I sold 25 cases of each (coke, diet coke, caf free coke, caf free diet coke) and my reorder point was 30 case sales(for each) a purchase order would not be generated. If the Mix & Match PO could do a: cal...

Data Validation
What I am trying to achieve is a drop down list that would look something like this: D1a - suipplies F1g - cell phones C2a - travel E4b - computers and so on and so forth. I can do that.

Item 'Last Ordered' Field updates inappropriately
The 'Last Ordered' field updates when I transfer inventory out. This is not good. If I want to know the last time I bought an item, the date of the most recent transfer does not help - especially if it was an inter-store transfer out. Ideally, separate fields for 'Last Transferred In' and Last Transferred Out' could be added as separate fields. This would reserve the 'Last Ordered' field for the last time the item was actually ordered from a supplier. Alternately, and better thant the present system, the field could simply update with purchase orders ONLY...

Link Two Tables with AutoNumber fields to One Form
Hi, I'm really stumped on this one: Right now I have a form that is linked to my Registration table. I want it to also be linked to my ID table, because I want to be able to update both tables using one form. I heard of creating a sub-form. Would this solve the trick? Right now, when I create a new record in the form, the AutoID of the Registration table increases sequentially. I want to be able to also have the ID table increase its AutoID and create a new record in that table too. That way I can use that new ID table value to create a value that will eventually be stored in...

Copy and paste two named ranges together.
I am attempting to copy and combine two named ranges of equal size into a blank spreadsheet. How does one copy the first named range and concurrently seperate each copied row with a blank row into the blank spreadsheet, and copy the second range and paste those copied records into the blank rows? I am looking for a systematic way of doing this consolidation. There can be hundreds of rows of data. Also the named ranges can very in size month to month. The end result is to combine two ranges for a journal entry upload into a financial accounting entry. The two arrays represent the ...
