Custom Pivot forms

SJM
I have a reporting database that has a series of pre-defined Pivot Table
screens. What I would like to do is to enable users to be able to save their
own configurations. I found 2 ways of doing this. One involved saving the
Pivot Table XML, which seemed a great concept but one which seemed ot only
work on MS Access 2003 and not on Access 2002. The other method involved
having code to save the Pivot Table as a new form, and populating a table of
Pivot Table formats from which users could choose. This worked well, until I
compiled the database....and consequently discovered that you cant create a
new form on the fly in an mde. The db needs to distributed in compiled
format. Has anyone come up with a method that allows users to
create/configure a Pivot form and save it for use next time in a mde.

By its very nature an .mde file cannot have new forms, reports. What I
do is create another .mdb file that links to the same tables as the .mde
and let the users create new queries, forms, reports in that file.

I am in the middle of writing a system for a client who has Access 2000 installed on 8 PC's I have Access 2002 and the system I have written relies on pivot tables to display results. I now find that 2000 does not support them. Is there a way (an add-in or something) that the client can get to display pivot tables? TIA

Hello, I am working in Access 2003. I have a pivot table that looks very good, and if I press CTRL+A, CTRL+C while in the PivotTable View then it will be copied into memory. I can then do CTRL+P in Excel and it pastes over great. Is there a way to do this with OLE Automation (or some other way)? I have been able to copy a PivotTable View of a Form to Excel with the following code:

I'm creating a pivot table using vb.net and the data is from sqlserver (desktop). I have been successful at creating the pivot table, which includes a 'date' column field. I'd like to group the date column field by months and quarters, but can't come up with the correct code. Here is the code I've written to create the pivot table. Any help to code grouping the date column field would be appreciated. Thanks, Jerry

Does anyone know how to create a Pivot Chart at run-time? I have a database of meter readings that currently requires me to have 200 forms created so the user can enter date criteria and have a chart pop up. I would like to remove the forms and have them created at run-time. Any ideas?

I've got something called "Reference Rates". The idea is that on a given day, we have various rates of return for various entities. e.g. Libor 3-month return, Libor 6-month return, US Treasury Bonds, the Prime rate, and so-forth. We associate a security with one of those rates. There are a set of rates for each calendar day, and the rates for that

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
