Access 97 Chart's RowSource

I have a string variable that I need to set as the RowSource of a chart.  How can I do that using VB code in Access?  I've tried   gphProduct.RowSource = str_select and I get an error message.  Any thoughts?

If this is on a report it cannot be done.
(cant chang graph's row source runtime..)
Is it on a report? I got a workaround if it is..let me know

if it is on a form you can do this:
on the form_open:
 
SQL = "SELECT DISTINCTROW [ko_navn],  blah blah blah"
Me![Field30].RowSource = SQL
Me.Refresh

This works for me, what is the error you gets..?

The chart is on a report.  Can you send me the work-around?  The error message was something to the extent of - You entered an invalid expression for the RowSource of gphProduct or gphProduct does not except the property RowSource -  or something like that.  I have the exact message at work and I am  at home now.

Magna,
Yeah that make sense. I've belied I've read somwhere that you cannot change rowsource on a report runtime.
The workaround is simple it is to instead change the query. So Say you have a report where the graph has rowsource MyStandartGraphQuery

Waht we have to do is to change MyStandartGraphQuery to the real Query:

Here is a sub that changes queries:
Private Sub NK_SkiftQDef(FraQ As String)
'Funksjon that copies a query to MyStandartGraphQuery
 
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
    DoCmd.CopyObject , "MyStandartGraphQuery", A_QUERY, FraQ
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Sub


So you must link tha graph to a "standard" query, and before you open the report use this function to copy the query.
If the row source comes from a "user defined" SQL you have to open the query as a querydef, and change it's SQL.
The beuty of this method (it's my own idea actually) is that you can use it in runtime as weel as in MDE.
