Hi,

In a pivotchart the field names are the data so unless you cnange the data the field names are set.  This is by design.

hi Bill, thanks for your help!

i was referring to the addition / removal of fields to the "Drop Series Fields Here" / "Drop Category Fields Here" in the subform.

i don't think that's possible? i've attached the test database in the above question, not sure if that helps! = )

Hi,

You can change the recordsource for the form or the controlsource for the fields programmatically.  In the OnOpen event for example you can change:

forms!Query_qry subform.recordsource = "Query1"

me!Field1.controlsource = me!Field2

Regards,

Bill
