I would like to take a pivot table, make some changes to the way it appears (report?) and display it on a web page.  Secondly, I would like it automatically updated, I think this happens automatically.  I'm not sure if this is possible for a beginner.  I've got the Pivot table near where I want it, however, am not sure if what I want is possible.

You cannot display Access objects on the web. You could build your query, then build a report of it, then "print" it to a PDF file and display that on your web (after you upload it, of course), but this wouldn't automatically update data as users enter it.

You could use a web-based language (ASP.NET, PHP, Perl, etc) to interact with a charting component to display something like this from your Access database. You'd have to put your db on the web server, of course, since you cannot remotely connect to an Access database, and that would likely be troublesome, since your local users wouldn't be able to enter data to the web-based db.
