Does Access support pivot tables now


Board Regular
I am new to MS Access. I wanted to know, does Access support Pivot tables now.

I am required to edit couple of existing macro. These macro has pivot tables in this.
However, I guess, pivot tables are no longer available in Access.

Please correct me if am wrong. How do I proceed if pivot is not supported.
What are the alternatives. Has anyone here faced same situation.
How should I handle this. Can anyone please help me in this.

I read various articles about Pivot table. Am still reading few.
I guess, Pivot is no longer supported in Access now. We need to export data to Excel and create pivot.

Can anyone please correct me if am wrong

This might be a silly question, most probably yes.

I have different Access files with pivot table.
Access 2013, Access 2010 and Access 2007.

If I have pivot tables in Access 2010 and Access 2007 and am using these files from Office 365.
Will I still face Pivot table issue.
One thought is, though the initial versions supported pivot tables and codes were written accordingly.
However since Office 365 does not have support for pivot, my pivot tables won’t work though written in previous version files.
Please correct me if am wrong.

I believe this is Excel code called from Access.

Can anyone please help me in this.

You can do almost nothing in VBA (if I understood correctly, you want to manipulate pivot tables in macros/VBA...).
There is one strange solution when you use VBA code in Access to create and manipulate a pivot table in Excel and then bring it back to Access. Try this if it sounds interesting.
