Chart differences Comment from Joni Moore @ 5/18/2016
My supervisor uses a laptop and I use a PC to use our Access Database. For some reason, every time I pull up the charts I've created, they look great as you described in Lesson 2, but when he pulls up the same charts with the same date range, it doesn't display the whole chart. It cuts off the right side. I tried changing the charts to Zoom mode thinking that would solve the problem. But now, mine still look great, but when he pulls up the same data, it not only still cuts off the right side, he also now is not able to view the bottom categories.  Any ideas why this might be happening?

Are they different sized monitors, Access doesn't have responsive forms.
You can add scroll bars though

Export data to an Excel Comment from Richard Lanoue @ 5/15/2016
Will you show us how to export data to an Excell Spreadsheet?  Some clients have vendors where they do mailings and need to have it in an excel spreadsheet...  I want to have that option...

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I've written up a full seminar on the subject, exporting data objects of all types to other access databases or excel/text files, it'll hopefully be released soon.

gantt chart Comment from Brian @ 3/12/2016
Is it possible to make a gantt chart in access, yes I know I could export the data to excel but the problem with that is I would have to remake my chart every time as the data changes and I dont want to do that.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Why not use a link instead of export then you can refresh the data.
You could try chart or charts methods but in Access instead of a HTA

yes, but part I of graphs did not finish

Reply from Alex Hedley:

It's likely to have picked up straight on the next video, Rich seems to record in one go and cut the videos at the end, it appears to roll straight on for me.

Advice Comment from Rose torres @ 3/10/2016
I don't know where I should pickup my access. I took graduate level access class, level 2 for my business Ed degree in 2004, then as a teacher, I self taught excel level 1 and 2 to help CO teach algebra to 8th graders. I was an IBM mainframe db1 and db2 programmer for 6 years until 1991 so I have data base concepts down. I've also took sql1 online last year from Univ of calf at irvine. So..I don't know where I should begin.
Finally do you also offer SQL reporting CDs?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

There is a seminar series on SQL
For SQL Reporting are you meaning SSRS?
