I ran out of room in Excel so I was successful in using Access for my source data with an Excel Pivot Table.

The problem I have is that I am the only one who knows the name of the Access file which has the source data.

There does not seem to be a way to find that particular file and/or change the source file (unless you redo the pivot table i presume).

Within the pivot table you go to wizard and it provides the 'get data' button but then just shows you the Access Tables and columns for the query.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

thanks

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

when in MS query, click the buton SQL. this brings up the sql of you query. copy the sql into word, find and replace to direct the sql to the new table, copy and paste back into the MS query sql window. then hit okay.
