Access Pivot Table "The query could not be processed: Database already exists" message.

Hello,

I have a query that I would like to view as a pivot table.  When I start dropping the fields onto the page, I get the message "The query could not be processed: Database already exists" message.

Any idea why this is happening?

I have no idea, really.  But another weird thing is that I get an installer/configure dialog every time I launch Access.  Wonder if they are related?

That can happen if you have more than one version of Access/Office installed on the machine...

Sorry, but there is no real fix for his...

Sorry for the late update.  It seems there was something really screwy with my Office install.  I had to uninstall and reinstall.  Then found there was Office 2000 on there as well.  Uninstalled that, too.  Anyway, not sure what fixed the issue, but once I got back up and running, it was fixed.
