Problem Changing Data Source In Pivot Table

Hello all. I have a workbook with multiple pivot tables pulling from a
odbc datasource. The database has been moved to a new server and I a
finding that even when I update the SQL with the new location in an
one query, it tells me it cannot graphically represent the SQL an
cannot pull the table. I am unsure as to whether or not I am mis-typin
something (although not really sure how i could do that) or if i a
missing some other place i need to update the link. Also, is there 
way to do it for all of the pivot tables at once? I have Excel 2000.

Thank you!!!

An example of the sql as it is (scroll down for needed change):
Filtch`, MULTIINFO.`Off Margin`, MULTIINFO.`Over Laps`, MULTIINFO.`Ove
Spray`, MULTIINFO.`Poor Adhesion`, MULTIINFO.`Ribbing & Roping`
MULTIINFO.`Topcoat Skips`, MULTIINFO.Trash, MULTIINFO.`Unpainte
Grooves`, MULTIINFO.Wrinkles, MULTIINFO.`Broken Edges`
MULTIINFO.`Paper Tears`, MULTIINFO.`Brash/Open Grain`
MULTIINFO.Rejects, MULTIINFO.Delaminations, MULTIINFO.`Holes & Splits`
MULTIINFO.`Low Spots`, MULTIINFO.`Film Defects`, MULTIINFO.Splices
FROM `\\Ntserver\public files\CHPI Reporting_BE`.MULTIINFO MULTIINFO

but with the new location it should be FROM '\\Mainsvr-1\publi

see anything i need to change? Help! LO

Change left bar and top bar names on Order screen
Ok, I guess this could be the left bar and top bar names for any screen, but I'm specifically asking about the Order screen. I have a client that wants to change "Create Invoice" at the top to "Close". They also want to change "Write-In Products" to "Write-In Rooms". Where do I change these? I don't see them as options in the customization screens, even in the N:1 and 1:N areas.

Change Names of Legend
Hello, I understand that you change the actual text that appears in the legend, not the font of it. I tried to follow the example given on this site and doesn't work. Here is the formula for one of the markers in the Chart. The formula refers to 2 markers on the chart. I would like one marker in the legend to be "plastic" and the other "hardware" =SERIES(,Sheet1!$C$2:$C$28,Sheet1!$B$2:$B$28,1) Thank you very much for your help.

Jon, How would you do this with a Pivot Table? I'm not a Pivot Table novice and I just can't envision how this one would be done. Thanks, Barb Hi Barb - I didn't see this question at first, but I responded in the original thread. I didn't try to replicate the OP's one column setup from his first post, because it didn't match the more logical arrangement in his post in the other forum. - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Peltier Technical Services Tutorials and Custom Solutions _______ Barb Reinhardt wrote: > Jon, > ...

Something destroying Money data
My MS Money 2007 software was working fine, and then a few months ago, there were transactions missing. I went for backups, and it seemed every time I opened a MOney file there were fewer transactions--it was truly weird. Thinking a file had been accidentally deleted, I used a file recovery program and retrieved file and backup - also no data. So I just put the whole thing aside and out of mind, but tried again today and searched all partitions for mny and mbf files.. Same result, if anything fewer transactions. Is there some virus or other malware that eats Money files? I guess I can d...

A Linking Problem
Assume I have a column of numbers, in a file named Source. (range is B2:B10). These cells are linked to a column in a file named Destination(range is E2:E10). If I add a new row 5 to the source, is there a way I can get the previously linked cells in Destination to continue to display the correct values. After adding the new row 5 in source, rows in Destination below row 5 display values from rows below (in the Source file). I hope this is not too confusing a question (I am confused). If it of importance, the linking was done using Paste Link in the Paste Special dialog. Thanks. Hi PA Yo...

Pivot Table Axis format
Hi. I have a macro that creates a pivot-table and pivot chart. The X-axis is a date. In the raw data, the date is formated as month/day. This is the way I want it on the chart. However, the X-axis formats with month/day/year. How can I force this to display correctly? Thanks, Mike. Do you see a grey little dropdown under the X axis (where you can choose your dates to show)? If yes, then rightclick on it. Select the top option: "Format pivotchart field" then click on the Number button on the next dialog. There are a bunch of date formats that you can choose from. Maybe...

Form printing problem

Windows 7 taskbar API problems
Folks The background is that an Access MDE/ACCDE created by a developer is not conceptually the same as an Excel spreadsheet or Word document file created by the user. My Auto FE Updater utility automatically downloads any new version created by the developer from the server to the workstation as well as doing lots of other stuff such as creating shortcuts on desk tops. If this was a user created Access database file which resides in the users My Documents folder, or similar, than they are conceptually the same as a Word or Excel file.

How do you distribute global changes? (format strings etc) GP 9.0
This one is stumping me for the moment. In brief, the client needs to be able to enter phone numbers that are not compatable with the canned Phone_Number format and data types. I was able to make the change on my test machine easily enough, but I am uncertain if there are any gotchas in the distribution process. I found a knowledge base article that tells me I will need to copy Forms.dic and Dynamics.vba to the client machines. But, does it matter what order I do that in as regards my other modifications? I have a .cnk file, as well as simple modifed forms and reports (with and witho...
