I have a pivot chart created in access as a form.
I would like to create drill-down on this chart to show
more detail chart, which is,  when you click on the first chart, the other chart shows up.
Is it possible to do it in Access 2007 , if so how to do it ?
Thanks !

Pivot Charts do not have a "drill" down feature specifically, so unless an expert here wants to spend the time creating something "custom", you may be out of luck here...

About the best you could do is create a "Filter Criteria Form" where you selected the criteria.

But this would not be "Dynaimic" as in a true Drill down, and would require more manual intervention.

I already have a criteria form.
I thought, I can make use of 'on click' event on the chart and I put code to run another chart, but it did not work.

Sorry, because a Pivot Chat in Access is just a "View" you cannot really click on it and do anything.

But drill down functionality is something I wish MS would include.

Sorry I could not help more
