Pivotchart View pritning; landscape

Follow up to an unresolved question from another member. Pivotchart report would not allow more than one item, so I went with pivotchart view of a query, and set the default view to chart. But I can't get the print orientation design set to landscape. Every time the chart is opened, you have to set the orientation. Major pain for the inexperienced end user.

After you set the page orientation to Landscape, you are saving the chart - right?

Yes, I saved after making the orientation change. Orientation was applied for this iteration only, and was not applied when the query was opened next time. This was to be expected, since if I did not save the change, I was not prompted to do so when closing the query. A sure sign query design was not changed.

I have a form with a chart, I clicked File, Page Setup, Page tab, and checked Landscape and Saved the form.  I closed the form re-opened it, selected Print Preview, and there it was in Landscape.  I then created a Pivottable chart from the data in Northwind, changed the orientation to Landscape, saved it, closed and re-opened the chart, and there it was - in Landscape.  What can I say?

This was a pivotchart view of a query. Perhaps a work around solution is to create a form based on the query and do the pivotchart view in the form instead, where page setup changes can be saved.

It is to say you cannot save a query in a landscape or portrait view.  It does not give you the 'Save As' option.   You can print it either format but...

I feel I answered the question.  A query does not have a Portrait/Landscape property like a form or a report does.  One does not normally 'Print' a query - that action is normally done in a form or a report.  Access does, however, give the user the ability to print a table or a query in recordset view.

But the details of that Print option are not save as a property of the table or query.

My original post was to about printing a pivotchart view of a query. I can set it to print landscape, but cannot save the change to be applied next time the query is open. If the correct answer is that you can't make that happen in Access, not even programatically, then I suppose that is an answer. Just not a solution.
