Create pivot table in excel 2007 from query in access 2007

I want to create a pivot table in excel 2007 from a query that uses other queries and tables to run in access 2007 as well as have the ability to update the pivot table if the query data has changed without recreating the pivot table each time the query data changes. I tried the following, but my query isn't listed.

In Excel, on the Data tab, click From Access
Select your database, click Open
Select the query, click OK
Select PivotTable report, click OK

I've done that. How do I refresh the pivot table from time to time when the query data changes?

I figured it out. All I have to do is go to the options tab and click refresh.

I'm giving a B, because I had already performed the suggested solution before I came back to this site.
